People are dumb. I would hate to hear those things while your trying to ENJOY your pregnancy. People are there just being nagitive and trying to bring you down!!! I’m not pregnant or had babies so I haven’t had anyone say that to me ever but I just wanted to say don’t listen to those nagitive life suckers! Be positive, excited and happy

Haha I’m only ttc not yet pregnant and it bugs me – I’ve had so many people (not knowing we are trying) say enjoy sex now because once you have kids there’ll be none… Hmmmm ummm thanks! 

Enjoy your pregnancy 🙂 and try ignore people’s silly comments 🙂

I got the sleep one a lot. But I have to admit I was naive how much things would change post pregnancy. I mean I knew things would change but not like I expected it to be.

Enjoy the bikini bod you have because after baby was my fave 🙂 

Enjoy your freedom now because after baby you don’t get much

@MrsMaskatoBe:  I still slept and there was sex atleast twice a week at 8 months. Although at 9months the sex was just to try and bring on labor.

@NickiBee:  well my DH is weirded out now that we had a 4D US and saw that baby is very low and head down and close to the cervix. And for sleep, you’re lucky you were able to sleep! Many people I know, including me have insomnia. Jealous of you.

So annoying! I heard this a lot when I was pregnant with dd. My favorite was “enjoy going out to dinner because you can’t take kids out all the time they misbehave & embarrass you”. What a joke! She is soooo well behaved we take her everywhere, go out to dinner every week. Then there’s enjoy “sleep, sex, your SO, your friends, etc”… I still enjoy all of those things. Dd isn’t a morning person she sleeps in, we are like bunny rabbits lol, fi & I always make time for each othrr & all of my friends have kids so we have play dates & child free outings (planned in advance if course). People are ridiculous.

@NJmeetsBX:  congrats on your upcoming addition.

people with comments like that are ignorant.  next time someone makes an unsolicited remark i’d respond by saying, “i’m sorry you feel that way.  then again, parenthood is what you make of it.”

enjoy.

@NJmeetsBX:  I got these all the time when pregnant with baby #1. Some I wish I would have thought about it more– like going out to late movies, going on lots more dates with DH, taking spontaneous road trips, just going out to the store. When I was pregnant, we were so excited about the baby coming that we didn’t really think about what we were going to miss out on. If I could go back, I would completely overload on “us” time 🙂 Now that we’re pregnant with baby #2, I’m trying to sneak in as much “us” time with our daughter, because I know soon the attention is going to be split between two!

Sorry you’re getting so much unsolicited advice, I hate to say it, but get used to it– it only gets worse once little one gets here 🙂 (and then it’s even MORE annoying!!!)

I love all those lines! Except when people say them seriously.

I don’t mind jokes about how my husband is suddenly going to forget how to be an adult, I’m never going to sleep, I’m going to gain 874587 pounds, and I’m going to become a nun, but I REALLY don’t like when people say it seriously!

While I’m not pregnant, I already dread these kinds of statements. I’ve heard plenty of these when we even talk about having a baby, and it’s so annoying.

Ugh yes. Basically they make it sound like life will be a complete write-off after having a kid. Like my husband and I will suddenly become mortal enemies, I will literally never achieve sleep again, my body will become so deformed I’ll be unrecogizeable. Yet there they all are, with 2-3 kids. Seriously. I get that there are going to be changes but they make it sound like you’re condeming yourself to the seventh circle of hell for all eternety, never to feel joy again.

The best one I got is from my boss – “Enjoy things now, because once the baby comes, your life is OVER.” Yikes.

Ppl say these things cuz they r true…i got annoyed with comments too…until i had a baby and found out they were true. your body will never quite be the same…you won’t ever get a sound sleep…no matterminated how old they are…you’ll hardly have enough time for yourself…or your spouse…your house will never look those home and gardens magazines. many first time moms think they know it all…until the baby is born and they r totally clueless. i know cuz i was one of those women.
