someone just complained to me about being on their period.

"My body is punishing me for not getting pregnant."

Oh, I'm sorry. Let me give you my daily vomit, my sensitive smell, these incredibly painful milk-holders on my chest, my raging hormones, and my future stretch marks. I'm sure that will be so much better than your week of bleeding.

My apologies for not feeling bad for you, but I'm a little busy growing a human. Call me when you have a real problem.

*Periods suck, I get it. But really, don't complain about a stubbed toe to someone who lost their leg in a car accident. Unless you've experienced the joys of pregnancy, you can't complain about the hell a period brings. Okay, you can. Just don't do it to pregnant women. It pisses them (or maybe just me) off.

    If you don't feel LUCKY to be pregnant you shouldn't be pregnant. I am sure you know this person that you were talking to and know she isn't having an issue getting pregnant but there are plenty of people out there who are brought to tears each month when their period comes because they have been trying so hard to get pregnant. I am not one of them. I am currently 37 weeks pregnant but I cannot believe how insensitive this post seems... I have felt LUCKY to be pregnant the entire 35 weeks I have been.
