Am in my 32nd week now and feeling very bloated and vulnerable. I have a few work mates around me which I feel are not sensitive to me being a pregnant woman.
What they like to do is creep behind me or silently come up to me and give a loud 'boo!' and me being the excitable one will always scream loudly in shock. apparently its funny to them. i dont mind so much if im not pregnant but im scared that it will affect baby?
what do you all think?
Tell them that you dont't appreciate such jokes....as it may cause you to go into labour, tht will make them back off
I think it's better you tell them straight to their face that they should know you're pregnant and should not scare you from the back. I hate this kind of ppl, i also have a few colleagues who likes to slap ppl shoulder very hard, so when i know i'm pregnant i tell them straight away and say dont slap me as it'll scare my baby ok!! Then they dont dare to do it again! Be cautious ok. Your colleagues never pregnant before huh? If not they should understand.
Ya you should tell them off.. cause it will cause stress to you & baby inside.. cause you will be scared by their stupid act.... childlish people...
if i didnt guess wrongly, they are still single and definitely no kids (no preg before)..
just tell them your baby will be frighten.. though still in your tummy but he can feel..
Pls tell them off, it's not funny.. Geez..
hi there mummies,
actually i did tell them off but there r a few stray ones here n there . very irritating. the best thing is some of em are daddies themselves!
just give a kick in the balls..... and say sorry, reflex action.
Stupid ppl...not little bit funny..I hate being scared or go scare ppl...
Must be their parents never teach them manners..
Be daddies??guys??childish..wait till their wives get scared by ppl
alamak! cant imagine got pple still so childish at this age...
gotta be stern with them and tell them off...!!...
omg!! why so immature??
if i were you, i sure scream my head off at them!
haha, or maybe when they do that then pretend to have fake cramps to scare them.. see they dare to do it again anot!
My gosh! so immature! how old are your work mates?? You really should tell them off n be fiercer at that! It's not good for you nor your baby to be scared especially at this stage. Can go into early labour or cause fetal distress.
Another thing you can do is to put a BIG mirror in front of your work station so that you can see clearly who is sneaking up behind you. No more element of "surprise" then. HumPh!
i didn't know such adults exist. it only happens in my students. so childish. my students are much better off than your colleagues in this case as they are more sensitive.
ignore them and tell them to grow up man.
