A Rant of sorts- What Condition do I have??

I have a huge pet peeve, being told I can not do something. As a child I was raised to be independent and self reliant. I hardly bitch when I’m sick or hurt. I know what needs to be done and how long it will take me to get said task done. In general, I really don’t like being told no. Where there’s a will there’s a way. Fast forward to now, here I am almost 9 months pregnant, still felling great and having a great pregnancy. I realize that my generation is quite different than others. So let me see if I can put this nicely. I’M PREGNANT, NOT CRIPPLED.  I have a Tiny human growing in me, not a life threatening tumor. So, please enlighten me, what condition do I have? Do I have cancer and I not know it? Did my Doctor call you to inform you instead of me? NO? I thought not. I am more than capable of doing things for myself and I don’t need to be babied. I have shit I have to get done (I.E. Cleaning the house, running errands, taking care of the animals, and running my business) I can’t rely on waiting for my husband to do it all.(Not to mention, I don’t think Mr. Sailor could handle my sewing machines) It make take me a bit longer but I will get it done. Done rush me and you better not tell me not to do it. I know what I can and can not handle. Its not like I’m going to go bench press 300lbs on a whim. (now it I regularly did so, that would be another thing completely) I do know that a basket of laundry, grocery and etc.. are not going to hurt me. 

As for the Cat litter restriction, while Yes, Mr. Sailor cleans out the cats. BUT I did some investigating, The parasite that doctors are worried about when it comes to cat shit, lives in it and must be ingested. I don’t know about you but eating cat poop is not on my list of yummy things to eat. that being said I would have to become so paranoid about what I was touching and whether other people were risking putting me in danger… I’d would have spent this whole pregnancy in a bio-hazard suit and a bubble. There is no reason to be that paranoid, just wash your hands and your good. Believe me, Mr. Sailor and I are probably helping Dial stay in the black… OHHH and that same parasite can live in sandwich meat and can affect everyone not just pregnant women….. HA!

The moral of this story, Don’t you dare say “well in your Condition, blah, blah, blah.” I’ll probably end up putting you in your place and telling you to F@#$ Off.

    What most people don’t know about toxoplasmosis (what you can get from cat poop), is that if you’ve been a cat owner before getting pregnant, you most likely already have the parasite (about 1/3 of all people have it). The parasite is only harmful if it’s introduced while you’re pregnant. So I wouldn’t worry about it. I survived dozens of cats through three pregnancies.

    An interesting note about that parasite: scientists believe that the parasite is responsible for making humans smarter. Cat-revering cultures like the Japanese and ancient Egyptians are often used as examples.

    Deli meats are a different story, though (especially cured meats, like salami and such). The real danger with those is listeria, which is on the rise. You don’t want that even when you’re not pregnant.

    But people worry about pregnant women, it’s a natural instinct. It’s annoying, but not nearly as much as people who come up and touch your stomach like they know you. Rude and creepy!
