The 6 Pet Peeves Most Annoying To Pregnant Women

Recently, a woman shared her Pet peeve  when she was out with a pregnant friend on the eve of her induction when a fellow mama related a story to them about something that had gone horribly wrong during her delivery. It involved too much pitocin, a nurse’s mistake, and other upsetting details. Yikes! After this tone deaf mama walked away, my friend turned to me and I knew we were both thinking the same thing: Why?!? Indeed this is the biggest pregnancy pet peeve this woman had. When someone offers up a tale about a scary thing that happened to her or a friend or a friend of a friend while she was expecting. As if you don’t have enough to worry about as your due date approaches! But sometimes, one needs to steer clear of  scary stories capable of inflicting fears or psychological injuries to that extent of causing pet peeves to pregnant women. Here are some 3 examples below :

Belly pokes: For some reason, when people see that you’re having a baby they feel they have the right to come up and poke/rub your belly without asking. You may find that it doesn’t bother you so much when friends and family do it, but you’ll be surprised to find that even strangers on the street think that it’s perfectly OK if they poke you.
Comments on weight: Perhaps the one thing you never want to hear as a soon-to-be mommy is how much weight it looks like you’ve gained. Not only are you already aware that you could gain as much as 35 pounds throughout the next nine months, raging hormones could make you want to slap whoever had the guts to say such a thing.
The breast feeding debate: Regardless of what you decide, people tend to think that their opinion is what you should do when it comes to feeding your baby. You may find that you don’t want or have the time to breastfeed, and that’s OK. It can be a bothersome thing when people are constantly asking if you plan to breast or bottle feed, but try to block it out because you know which feeding method works best for you.
