The illustrated FMLs

Today, my wife, who is four months pregnant, burst into tears while thinking about the armchair in our living room that we never use. According to her, we're stopping it from living out its destiny as an armchair. FML

She can sit in it, then it will have two people on it, satisfying the chair further and letting your wife feel good. Those hormones really mess with people though...

Yes, those hormones are a rollercoster. I went on being weepy for months afterward too. Makes you a good Mom, though, sensitive to your little one's needs.

Oh trust me, it gets worse. She will scream and cry and tell you how much she hates you. Oh, and stay away from any stores that sell incense or perfume, pregnant women are highly jealous and have an amazing sense of smell and will fly into a rage of jealousy over nothing. Good luck :)

*6 There are ten months in pregnancy. At four months you actually have six months to go.

No. There are 4 weeks in 1 month. A pregnancy can last 36-40 weeks, typically. If a woman gives birth at 36 weeks, she was 9 months pregnant. If she gives birth at 40, she was 10 months. 40 divided by 4 equals 10.

It actually is ten months, there is an extra month at the start mate ;) pretty sure I know since I am pregnant, and I'm pretty sure all the doctors and midwives aren't wrong. Just saying. A simple google search would fix this if you guys weren't so lazy. But go on, keep thumbing me down for being right :)

29- Every month doesn't have 28 days. So 4 weeks to a month is wrong, it's actually 4.33. So using that in your calculations it's right around 9 months. Also explains why it's commonly known there are 3 Trimesters.

A typical pregnancy is 36-40 weeks. Im pretty sure 99% of people aren't going to calculate the 4.33, so most of the time you're going to hear, 4 weeks equals 1 month. So 9-10 months. 1st- week 1 to week 12. 2nd- week 13 to week 28, and then 3rd- week 29-40. :3

They also count the month before actual conception too. So really when you're four months pregnant you've only actually been pregnant for three months. Most people don't know that though. I most certainly didn't until I fell pregnant myself, so I'm assuming that's why a majority of people don't know either.

My OB explained it to me this way. It takes approximately 34-36 weeks for a baby to fully develop. Since they cannot accurately calculate the date that it was conceived, they count from the first day of the last period, roughly 2 weeks before ovulation, depending on how long your cycle is (36+2=38 at this point). A fully developed baby can survive safely in the woman's uterus for up to two weeks before having to worry about any health issues forming (38+2=40). This is why doctors will tell you a pregnancy can last anywhere from 36-40 weeks, depending on if the child comes early or late.

There is no such thing as a 'free pass'. As tough as pregnancy can be, there allways is the responsibility to act justly. The freedom to choose how to act is intrinsically connected to the duty to be responsible, which is why those who cannot be responsible lose the freedoms they cannot use properly. Young children, prisoners and some mentally handicapped are all in their own sense inresponsible, so they have less freedom than 'normal adults'. If pregnant women believe they have no moral duty to behave properly because they have a 'free pass', they fit in the category of those who deserve less freedoms.

This is nonsense. When your hormone levels are raging, constantly rising and dropping, it is hard to control your emotions and what you feel. Luckily, being bipolar, I learned prior to my pregnancy how to control the more severe mood swings, but not every woman has that luxury. To compare a pregnant woman to a criminal? Well that is just sheer nonsense! A criminal makes the choice to steal, kill, cheat, and lie; a pregnant woman can start crying and absolutely have no clue why. I am in a happy home, am still able to work in a great career, and have a healthy pregnancy, and yes.. I cry every now and then with no clue as to why. Let's hope you are never a "support system" for a pregnant woman.

23- Way to be a misogynist. Are you implying that a pregnant woman acting out should be put in jail or institutionalized? I can't believe you would consider taking out the personal freedom of someone carrying life, just because she is most likely uncomfortable and having her body and nutrients being leeched of. You sound like the type of man who wants their women barefoot and pregnant, uneducated so that she has no other chance than to stay with your sick, deluded, 1950's view of women. Or maybe you just like to control people so they act 100% like you. Newsflash, you're not a god. People like you are closet narcissists and covert-aggressives who act solely out of hypocratic, holier-than-thou ideology.

As silly as it sounds, a hormone induced rage during pregnancy is a valid temporary insanity defense against a murder charge here. No I'm not saying to institutionalize pregnant women, but a battered men's lodge for fathers to be to hide in would be nice some days. My brother currently spends at least 2 nights a week hiding in my garage trying to discover what he did wrong.

23, being the pregnant woman that I am, I have read your comment plenty, trying to decipher what exact world you are living in. Just the fact that your stupidity and ignorance can anger me to such extent, I have to rationalize the fact that, even though I am hormonal, I know the difference between right and wrong and I know that comparing me to a criminal, not only is absolutely ridiculous but comical. If pregnant women were deemed insane or unable to comprehend correctly, then pregnant women would not be able to control themselves physically when it comes to people like you. Instead I get to laugh at your stupidity and hope one day you find yourself surrounded by pregnant women. Now that would be pure bliss. Karma is a bitch, and I can't wait for a pregnant woman to make you her bitch. Damn criminals.

Being pregnant does not give anyone a free pass to be bitchy or crazy. It just explains why, for the most part. All in all most women who get super bitchy or super crazy when prego, usually are normally bitchy or a little crazy. No matter what, and i say this with love, bitches be crazy.

Thanks for all the anger, hate and straw puppets. Don't worry, I'll be fine. Hope you guys can relax as well as I don't support a lot of the things you seem to think I do. I'm just glad my girl isn't into the 'free pass to do anything'. Have a nice day / pregnancy!

You negligent bastard OP! There was no use getting the poor chair's hopes up by buying it if you weren't going to use it. At least give it to a home that will allow it to live out it's purpose.

Did you ever stop to think that maybe the chair is a free-spirit and has long since dissented from its purpose? So what if it was bred to be a seat for a fat ass? Maybe it's sick of being repressed by the expectations of society. Maybe it's tired of being a slave to the lazy and the weak. Maybe it just wants to see Niagara Falls and go skydiving and slide down a mountain with the wind in its upholstery. Did you ever consider that?
