Couldn’t get past the first paragraph. The words “more gruesome” made me close the page. EXCUSE ME FOR GETTING UGLY WHILE GROWING YOUR CHILD. Jackass.

“Come along as we examine the many terrifying ways your wife’s body will change during her pregnancy.”

Anyone else have the sudden urge to shove a watermelon down this dude’s throat and wait for it to “pass”?

You’ve got to be kidding me?? I hate society. That article is repulsive. Pregnancy is amazing and for someone to tell a new dad that it’s not…f*ck you. The mother of the child will be taking extreme measures to take care of that little baby for 9 months and will go through an unbelievable amount of pain to bring that child into this world but the author can only think about the superficial changes that take place. Bleh.

It’s like they were aiming for the perfect blend of informative and degrading.

Wow, it doesn’t even end by saying something nice, unless you count, “On the positive side, it does allow you to seize the remote control while she dashes to the loo.”  I’m glad I’m married to someone who would never talk about me the way that article talks about pregnant women.

As someone who is scared of pregnancy, I welcome hearing the truth about what actually happens during preganacy, birth and post partem.  I think reading about how miraculous having a baby is is kind of useless – I’d rather read something realistic.

(Ok now I will hide in the corner…)

@JoJo Bananas: There’s being informative and honest, but then there’s plain mean. He is just being mean. If you want to know what some truths, read “What to Expect when You’re Expecting.”  = ) Also there are pleanty of women on here willing to share their eperiences. = )

@JoJo Bananas: I totally agree that I want the real deal about what to expect, but I definitely found that article to be a “how your wife’s bringing YOUR child into the world is going to inconvenience and disgust you”, which is kind of rude.  I think until men can do it themselve, they should keep their mouths shut 😛

I recently had a friend tell me that she had a friend who was 8 months preggo and a bridesmaid, and preceded to tell me that she’d be the ugliest bridesmaid ever.  I was 38 weeks pregnant. Meanwhile, my husband still tells me how sexy I am at 39 weeks.

People are entitled to their opinion, but I agree that there’s a difference between being honest and just being mean.

@JoJo Bananas: I’m kind of have to agree with you here.  I’m not scared of pregnancy but I think it is good to have the “negatives” of pregnant life laid out for you so you can know what to expect.  It isn’t all butterflies and roses.

The article may be somewhat facetious but I don’t think it is anywhere near as “mean” as everyone is making it out to be.

I think its pretty accurate. Many people find a pregnant woman’s body ‘beautiful’, but I certainly never felt that way!
