Tired of getting unwanted pregnancy advice, or worse, horror stories about other people’s experiences? We hear you.
Pregnancy Advice 101
Everyone from strangers on the street to your mother-in-law to late-night internet searches can turn up advice you don’t need and may not understand. Everyone seems to need to share their labor horror stories and unasked for advice with you. They may even comment on what you should and should not be eating, drinking, or even wearing.
They’ll tell you you’re having a girl just by looking and gush over what a beautiful experience pregnancy is – right when you are feeling your worst. They may make you wonder if it’s okay to feel your worst or not enjoy every minute of the experience. Trust us, at some point. You’ll learn how to nod politely (smile optional) and tune them out.
That late-night internet search? That’s on you, but our unsolicited advice is, don’t do it.
