It is a truth universally acknowledged, that as soon as someone becomes pregnant, they also become inundated with advice from perfect strangers. And guess what? That unsolicited advice doesn't ever stop. Ever.
For whatever reason, people will see a pregnant person and think to themselves: "I should definitely give advice to that person even though they are a total stranger and they did not ask for it. I should also share with them a terrifying list of everything that could possibly wrong go wrong during pregnancy and the birthing process. Ooh, and I'm gonna touch that belly, too."
Folks, this is a weird and bad thing to do to anyone, and an especially weird and bad thing to do to someone who is literally in the process of growing an entire human inside of their body.
A recent AskReddit thread gave people the chance to share their own stories of bizarre pregnancy advice they got from people. And, WOW. There are some real doozies here.
