do you think a baby story is like crack for pregnant women??

My 2 year old son naps the 1 1/2 block that A Baby Story is on... I always have big plans to start my "nesting" (I am 34 weeks preg) at this time- but I end up watching all 3 episodes, munching on whatever sweet snacks I can find and crying in anticipation instead. How 'bout you?

  • nope- I was TERRIFIED by all of the UNNECESSARY 'interventions', drugs, and the control taken away from these women in the most vulnerable moments of their lives.

  • Yes, in the fact that it's bad for you. It seems like no one on that show can breastfeed. I refuse to accept the notion that the women wherever that show is being filmed are so incapable of what is probably the most natural thing a person can do. If it's true than formula companies are thwarting Darwin at an unimaginable rate. That show annoys me.

  • ROFLOL My oldest (who was 3 at the time) was addicted to that show when i was pregnant. We had to watch everyday now 9 years later when i make comments about it he turns red and says shuuussshhhh lol. I offered to turn it on the other day for him and he just walked away shaking his head.

    I loved it and i was addicted to it also, you just cant help but want to watch all baby shows all the time when your pregnant.

  • i agree with anon. it's horrible for you! and i would watch it too if i had that channel/was home at the time. so many risky interventions, very few natural births. it's kind of sad really. but so is crack addiction!

  • Ugh, I hate it. Since I don't want any of the hospital mess, it just makes me irritated and sad.

  • I hate those shows, they show birth like a train wreck and it doesn't have to be that way at all, last time i watched an episode i was so annoyed that i changed channels after 10 minutes.

  • it is sad. it's always "ok we're just going to get some pitocin going to speed thing along" then 5 minutes later "baby's heartbeat doesn't look so good" then 5 minutes later "you're going to have to have a c-section" =(
