My MCM is of course my sexy beast of a hubby. It’ll be 5 years in October! Glad I scooped him up when I did :)

This happened last night and it was the best 10 minutes ever. I promise you Piper was cracking up laughing,you just can’t tell it. They were chasing each other then tackling each other and back and forth. Jeremy and I just watched them play and I could tell we were both thinking the same thing: “it can’t get better than this.”


Q
Your argument is on my dash and I can't help but laugh. My pregnancy book told me in the first trimester that I should increase my amino acids during pregnancy and green tea was a good way to do it. It also recommended green tea if you're at risk for diabetes. Skip to my third trimester and there is a whole topic on how green tea stops folic acid absorption and you shouldn't drink it early on in pregnancy. This was a popular book. And even IT didn't know what was perfect or right.

Haha omg I’m so sorry I’m filling up your dash with this. Normally I don’t but for some reason I just couldn’t help myself.
And you’re completely on point. In pregnancy everything is usually taken with a grain of salt because every situation,baby and trimester are so different. No one is going to make all the right decisions,in pregnancy or afterward in parenthood. Sometimes when your pregnancy hormones are kickin,your anxiety is running rampant and your cravings are knarley you just gotta crack open a can of diet baby killer

Diet…baby…killer. Yes.

And JFC I watched a full length movie and came back and she’s still on about how right she is. Popping popcorn and settling in for the night. I should have skipped netflix and refreshed my dash.

Haha I legit just put popcorn in my microwave and thought to myself “this is just perfect timing to want some popcorn”

Q
Dude is it me or does it seem like WTTC-ers know SO MUCH MORE ABOUT PREGNANCY THAN PEOPLE WHO HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN PREGNANT. Bitch please. Pop out a baby or two first before you comment on what we should and should not do.

Everyone knows everything about everything. That’s what I’ve learned in my time on Tumblr.

I think they may know more because they’ve taken the time to do a great deal of reading about pregnancy and birth. Women who find it easy to be pregnant do t think about it as much. That’s a bit sad really.

Just because someone has done something doesn’t necessarily mean they know more about it.

But I think it’s not always like that. Some ttc-ers know nothing and other women who never had to even try know so much. And vice versa of course. Like myself,I’ve been pregnant twice and it didn’t take long at all either time and I’m extremely informed and like it that way. Other moms could care less about reading,learning,researching,etc. just depends on the woman.

Exactly.

The Girl at age 15 had to explain what preeclampsia was to a room full of women who all had at least two kids.

Of course, my kids are at a distinct advantage because pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding are common topics at our house. :)

Oh Dear lol yeah pregnancy and birth are normal topics here and will continue to be so their whole lives. My oldest helped me through early labor with her sister and hopefully they’ll be present during the 3rd and so on and so on. When your moms a doula you better be prepared for pregnancy/birth discussions! Lol but no matter how educated they are I hope they know they’re no better than the next woman and that every pregnancy journey is different

But why is she drinking fake sweeteners when pregnant?

1. You don’t know if she actually drank any of it 2. There’s worse things she could be doing,I drank soda all through my pregnancy.

Soda is one thing, diet soda is another. Aspartame is a neurotoxin, meaning it inhibits brain development. Sure, some kids will be fine but why take the chance?

There’s so many things that are horrible for you,sometimes more than you actually know about. Sometimes you can’t avoid them. Also, let’s stop criticizing everyone else’s pregnancies/lives. And bonus: diet soda isn’t super healthy for anyone,the dad included but no one felt the need to comment on HIS nutrition habits.

His brain is fully developed, the fetus’s is not. The neurotoxin will have less of an impact on a fully developed brain than a fetal one, common sense.

Holy shit man. Do you patrol EVERYONES pregnancy or just random strangers? I don’t agree with everyone’s choices during pregnancy,clearly,but it’s their pregnancy not mine. Especially when it’s someone who will never see my distaste for their choices or the advice I have to give.

So I make a valid point saying that an undeveloped brain will be more effected by aspartame and this is how you respond? Okay. Great. I’m never saying she can’t I’m just saying that it’s a harmful neurotoxin. Did I mention the caffeine? No, because although there are varying opinions research shows it’s less harmful that aspartame. I am not the pregnancy police, but this is something that’s known to affect brain development and some people don’t realize that. So I’m sorry if that’s offensive to you, but it’s something that’s harmful to a fetus and that’s a fact.

I never said I didn’t agree it’s dangerous. It is. So is sandwich meat and hot dogs during pregnancy. But when I see a pregnant lady eating a deli sandwich my first thought isn’t “omg why is she eating that?!” Or “omg I have to stop her!” It’s not offensive that you think diet soda is unhealthy,cause it totally is to anyone not just pregnant ladies,it’s just aggravating that the only response of a super cute pregnancy announcement that you have is to jump to judge and criticize her.

"But why is she drinking fake sweeteners when pregnant?" wow so critical.

I just hope you don’t snap to judge all pregnant ladies like this. And since I’m guessing you’ve never been pregnant yourself,I hope when you are you make every right decision,have a perfect pregnancy and no one EVER judges you for a choice you make during that point in YOUR personal life. Cause no one is 100% perfect.

Most things I’m lenient about, but things like alcohol, smoking, drugs and anything else that’s a neurotoxin is something that can have a long term impact on the child’s cognition. I’m not saying cheat days with fat and sugar aren’t allowed, but something as easy as replacing diet soda with regular to assure that your child’s brain develops normally? I prefer the taste of diet myself, but I would avoid it during pregnancy like the plague.

Well then you’ll just be the most perfect pregnant woman and mother. Yay for you! Not all of us are that lucky I guess.

Self control to make a healthier choice isn’t a matter of luck.

But being absolutely perfect and without flaw is. I’ve never met anyone like that,no matter how hard working or how much self control they have,so it’s gotta be luck you’ll be so perfect!

I literally just said sugar and fat were fine but neurotoxins, drugs, alcohol and tobacco weren’t. I don’t think that makes me perfect, I think it just means that, idk, I care about the safety of my children.

And women who drink diet soda don’t? Holy hell man. I guess I don’t care about the safety of my 2 children because I ate some unhealthy foods,had wine at the end of my 1st pregnancy,probably had a drink of diet soda,didn’t take my prenatals and probably tons of other things the “experts” classify as dangerous. My poor kids have a mother who don’t care for their safety.

These are all simple things that you can cut out of/ add to your diet. I get if it prenatals made you nauseous, but was it seriously worth the risk now that you think about it? Is it totally fine to do just because your kids “turned out fine”? I’m not suggesting you climb Mt. Everest, but waiting 9 months for a diet soda or a glass of wine for the safety of your children? I’m glad your children are healthy despite your lapses in judgment.

Actually yeah cause prenatals aren’t all that necessary for you all the time if you’re getting your nutrients elsewhere,ya know since I spoke with my midwife first. And wine in your 3rd trimester is considered relatively safe and sometimes recommended during labor for relaxation and to help with contractions. And I hope that you don’t hurt yourself when you get knocked off your high horse during your first pregnancy (ya know you shouldn’t be up there,it’s too dangerous for your baby. You don’t care about their safety at all do you?)

That’s cute :) I’m not really a horse person, nice try though! God forbid I know myself well enough to say I won’t drink diet soda, alcohol, smoke and do drugs during my pregnancy because I know it’s healthier for the baby. Because that’s where my priorities lie, the safety of my child > the glass of diet soda or wine. Do whatever the hell you want. I just hope your kids are safe, but I’m gonna do everything in my power to make sure mine are.

And let HER do whatever the hell SHE wants with HER own damn pregnancy. It’s not yours,at all,not one bit. Not your place to say anything at all. Also not your place to judge and assume she doesn’t care about the safety of her child. That is a bitchy thing to do right there,and just wrong. Since you’ve never been pregnant you have no idea how it feels to have someone assume you’ll be a horrible mother all by a simple fucking choice you made. Until then,just smile and the cute video and leave your self righteousness elsewhere.

I never said she couldn’t goddamn I ASKED why she was drinking artificial sweeteners when she was pregnant. And you turned it into a whole big thing. Yes, they’re unsafe. Just like strapping a child into a car seat wrong or giving a 6 month old Mountain Dew. You never hear controversy about that, but it’s the same damn thing.

You must not be on Tumblr much if you think there’s no controversy over car seat safety or what you feed your infant lol
