so i know it may be a little early for this game as some of us haven't even reveled yet but its one of my favorite so we can do it agin later and see how much more ridiculous it gets as we go along.
what is the stupidest things you have been told about pregnancy/ you being pregnant so far and if you have a particular crowned jewel from a previous pregnancy please do tell.
So far iv only had two things
winning most offenive--- my grandmother sent me the number to an abortion clinic since this one was probably an accident considering how young Connor is.
and winning What the double hockey sticks- a guy at a bus stop told me that I had to stop after this one becuse more then 2 babies was a sign that your a ho (remind me not to tell strangers that me puking in a trashcan is not as concerning as it seems)
oh and from last pregnancy my crown jewel i belive is being told I had to start pumping at the begining of the 3rd trimester or my body wouldn't know how to make milk..(compleate and utter bull hocky for the win)
WOW! I shouldn't be surprised to hear that people actually say these things, but my response is just... Wow! I haven't had anything like that yet, but we have only told a few close friends and I'm not showing yet. We can't tell family until next month because DH's parents live out of town and we want to tell both families at the same time to prevent drama.
At least I can be prepared when the comments start!
1-i wont ever need maternity clothes...just keep buying regular clothes in bigger and bigger sizes
2- i shouldnt buy another car. My tiny, 2 door civic that is brutal getting in and out of and has close to 100,000 miles is perfectly fine and Im dumb to want something bigger. Im pretty sure I wont be able to fit in my car by Decemer
oh boy oh boy do I have some stupid ones.....
this is from my first pregnancy... let's see if I'll hear any repeats with this one!
(All of these are after having baby)
1. Don't take a shower for the first month ... if you do you'll have muscle problems when you get older.... (ummm.. gross... I was in the shower rinsing the day after popping out my wonderful bundle of joy... )
2. Don't climb stairs for a few weeks after baby... not sure why but my bedroom and shower was upstairs so I'm sleeping in my cozy bed....
3. keep your ears warm all the time!... (Funny story.. my sister in law had her baby 9 month before me and so when I visited her in the hospital she was wearing a fuzzy winter hat that has those fuzzy earflaps in her bed with a hospital gown... I asked her what are you doing and she said mother in law said you need to keep your ears warm because you don't want the ears to get cold for some weird reason) I said to my DH... Do not let your mom come near me with that hat in the hospital... lol
People telling me not to vaccinate because my 11 year old son has Asperger's (mild autism). And why would I want to chance that again? (ugh.)
It's horribly offensive to be told my choices based on science and medicine caused my child to have a disorder. And it's not true. If anyone has done their research, it's me. And honestly, why wouldn't I want another Marcus? I would take ten of my son over a lot of other children I've met!! He's an amazing person. And brilliant.
(since my kids are 11 and 13)
Oh my god, why would you want to start over again!!?? You're almost done! (I want to punch these people. I didn't realize it was a goal to have my children out of my life?)
Wow those are some doozies. I can't think of anything in particular I've heard.
Oh other than my dad said I "deserve twins." What he meant is that I shouldn't be having more kids so I deserve to have double the work or whatever. He seems to think we have kids for the baby bonus we get from the government. This from the guy who tells people he married my mom for the tax deduction.
