It’s funny the things people say when they find out that you’re pregnant. Usually it starts with a, “Congratulations! That’s so exciting!” or something very similiar. It then progresses to these phrases that might be helpful to hear before you’re actually pregnant.
1. You guys are going to be great parents.
2. I wouldn’t trade my kids for the world, some days are tougher than others but at the end of the day you still love them.
3. Pick your battles.
4. (If this is your first…) Enjoy this time with eachother before the baby comes.
So.. all of these things are great. They make you feel good about this little bundle that’ll be arriving before you know it. But… wouldn’t these have all been very helpful to hear before you get pregnant? And as for number 4.. shouldn’t you be enjoying the time with your spouse before you get pregnant? Not that I’m not grateful to hear things such as these, I just find it funny.
Did you hear similair advice when you told people you were expecting?
Love to all- Nicole
