This is a phrase that is starting to wear me down. Why do people feel the need to tell me that things will only get worse when the baby comes?
Here are some examples.
1. When asking someone how they feel and they respond back, why is it necessary to say “It will only get worse.” This is mostly heard when you reply that you are tired. Don’t you think that I know I will get very little sleep the first few months with a new baby. I have already taken this into consideration. However, I wouldn’t say it would get worse.
2. Another good example is when I say anything about my back hurting. Yes I know it is only going to get worse when the baby gets bigger. However, it is not comforting when you are constantly reminded of this fact.
