What is it about pregnancy and motherhood that makes people say whatever they want or feel like they have to give you advice? If you made a list of every inappropriate or random silly comment you heard you it would probably make you laugh, in retrospect that is. Well, that’s what Emily Van Do did. She made a diary of unbelievable comments and questions posed to a pregnant woman and turned it into “Mama Never Told Me….”(There’s one for new moms too).
It is a quick funny book that take a lighthearted look at what you may experience as a pregnant woman or new mom. Each page features comments or snippets of conversations paired with a fun illustration. It’s filled with things you’ve heard, but probably forgot or a preview of things to come.
Here are a few “You are soo big!! Are you sure they’re aren’t two in there?”, “You look like you could give birth next week!”
I’ve definitely have gotten this one. For some reason when you get pregnant it’s suddenly okay to talk about your chest like they are their own person. My boobs were big enough to start with, but then with pregnancy-they grew and grew and grew. Not to mention what they looked like 2 days after I got home from the hospital when my milk came in. Can you say alien?
What’s the craziest, annoying, most unbelievable comment someone has made to you when you were pregnant?
Emily’s lives in New York City, her son is now 4 and she will be launching her new blog in the next month.
