Anyone else beel judged while pregnant? For example, my husband would like to find out the gender at our 20 week appointment. When people ask if we are finding out and we tell them yes, they start asking all kinds of questions as to why, and they tell us how much better it is when you wait. So frustrating.
Then, my mother-in-law asked me if we were breastfeeding. I told her our plan was to pump for the first 9-12 months and skip breastfeeding. It is just not something I want to do. She went on to tell me all about her experiences breastfeeding and how much better it is than pumping. Every comment seemed incredibly judgemental. Really? As long as the baby is getting breastmilk I do not see the big deal. Agh!
Just let everyone make their own choices. I dont mind when people share their ideas, thoughts, and experiences, but don't judge.
