Pregnant Women Struggles Which Prove They All Deserve A Serious Round Of Applause

Being pregnant (from the outside) seems like such a beautiful and almost magical experience. 9 Months of researching baby names in books, going to exciting doctor's appointments, and throwing very extra gender reveals. Honestly, sounds like a breeze! Actually, though pregnancy is so much more than how it is portrayed in movies. You might be surprised to find out that it is just a little more complex than airy maxi dresses, and birthing classes. I'm just as shocked as you are.

Women are sharing their daily pregnancy struggles, and they really just make me have a lot more respect for these queens.

Delusional Mom Refuses To Let 25-Year-Old Daughter Sleep In Same Room As Boyfriend

When we are growing up, we have to follow our parent's rules. It's just the way it is. They feed and clothe us, so we basically have to do whatever they say. 

"Be home by 11."

"Oookay." 

"Finish your homework."

"Oookay"

"No closing doors when a boy is over."

"Ookay."

They make these rules (usually) to keep us safe, productive, and out of trouble. But sometimes our parents can forget that at some point we pay our own bills, buy our own clothes, and have to make our own decisions. At some point, they have to realize that we're not kids anymore, and we've already moved on from the possibility of teen pregnancy.

Disturbingly Creepy Pregnancy Photos From People Who Probably Shouldn't Be Parents

Parenting is a privilege that not everyone deserves — a fact which usually comes to light once these people have already had their children. But sometimes, you can tell that a couple has bizarre parenting ideas while they are still pregnant, and you can bet that things will only get worse once they've given birth. One telltale sign could be taking creepy, tacky, and cringe-worthy pregnancy pictures, like this group of soon-to-be parents below. I'm not sure who told them that it's a cute idea to dress your pregnant belly up like a basketball or to pose with a gun, but they were wildly misinformed.  Check out these horrifically awkward pregnancy photos below and cringe along with us.

Manipulative Mom Makes Conditional Offer To Buy Daughter's Wedding Dress, Gets Trolled

There is a special place in hell for manipulative, narcissistic parents, but especially for those who try to ruin their children's wedding day. Case in point is this woman, who posted on Reddit's Am I The A-hole, asking if she is wrong to only contribute towards her daughter's wedding dresses if she picked the dresses they wore. Yes, lady, you are a massive a**hole. It sounds like a whole bunch of emotionally manipulative, controlling, self-centered behavior to me, and evidently, her daughters feel the same. The overwhelming majority of people replied to her post, expressing their disgust at her attempts to make her daughters' weddings all about herself and essentially forcing her kids to buy her approval. Below, is her shocking post and some of the comments that she received in response.

Dad Fuming After Mom Puts Makeup On Their 2-Year-Old, Resulting In A Rash

Makeup is meant for adults; there are no two ways about it. Sure, kids can experiment and have fun with their mom or older sister's makeup, but only with adult supervision and within the framework of playing dress-up. Aside from the fact that adults encouraging children to wear makeup hild can cause body image issues that a child shouldn't have, some makeup contains chemicals that aren't designed for children's skin and can cause irritation and rashes. One father discovered this the hard way when his wife experimented with her makeup on their two-year-old child, which caused her to break out in a rash. A parenting war erupted over who was right.

Childfree Woman With Demanding Job Upset At Moms For Claiming Monopoly On Tiredness

We all have that one friend who just cannot stop 'sneak-bragging' about how overwhelmed they are, how they just barely have enough time to eat or sleep or exercise. Yet it seems as though they really make the time to tell you all of this, literally every single day. And of course, they never ask you about your life and your duties, because they're so cute and little compared to hers. You couldn't possibly understand what it's like to be tired! Why is it always a competition of who is busier? I know this must be making you think of somebody.

Before we get into this aggravating 'Am I The A-hole' post, if you feel pissed off already and want to scream, feel free to let it all out.

Relatable Pregnancy Memes For Anyone Struggling Through The 'Beautiful' Experience

If you are currently pregnant or have at any point been pregnant, then you'll know how beautiful of an experience it is. Nine months of pure bliss, where you get to bask in the glory of being proud to grow a new life inside of you, knowing that it will only get easier once you give birth. OK, fine, that may be stretching the truth— a little. Realistically, pregnancy is more like nine months of roller-coaster hormones, having your days taken over by morning sickness, and getting god-awful cravings at stupid-o-clock in the morning. All while knowing that it only gets more difficult once your little miracle makes an appearance into the world. If this sounds familiar, then these pregnancy memes are for you.

New Mom Lashes Out After Husband's Constant Sexist Jokes

Having children is quite possibly the most significant commitment you will ever make in your life and one you should only undertake if you plan on doing the hard work involved in raising your kids. This means sharing parental responsibilities with your partner, even if you didn't give birth yourself. Yes, dads, we're talking about you. However, it appears that some fathers don't understand how contributing half the ingredients towards making a child means that you are responsible for half the work in taking care of them. One new mom found out that not all dads believe this to be the case when her husband used sexist jokes as responses to her repeated requests to help her with their baby. She claimed that she did 99% of the work, and her husband refused to help, claiming that it was the women's job to raise babies. When she finally snapped and called him a d*ck, he went off in a huff, making her feel the need to apologize. She posted her dilemma on Reddit's Am I The A—Hole, and unsurprisingly, Redditors had a lot to say in her defense.

Asking him to do something is like pulling teeth sometimes. He keeps making jokes like he doesn't need to do stuff, he has a wife for that, or he can't do something, he's holding the baby.

Mom In Tears After Husband Nicknames Her 'Miss Piggy' To Incentivize Weight Loss

The internet is full of interesting people, some more so than others. But every so often, you come across someone who is such an awful human that you can't believe they are real. One guy proved how true this is when his wife posted on Reddit's Am I The A—hole explaining how demeaning approach to 'help' her lose her baby weight was giving her a breakdown. She unveiled that after developing post-partum depression, she struggled to shift the weight she gained from the pregnancy, which is when her husband decided to reveal he was no longer attracted to her. Charming, right? It gets better. In an attempt to incentivize her weight loss, he told all their friends and family (including their young children) to call her 'Ms. Piggy', effectively fat-shaming her into losing weight. After her children called her by her new nickname one night at dinner, she admitted that she lost it and started crying. Redditors jumped to her defense, calling her husband out as the emotionally abusive a—hole that he is.

Parents Admit Times They Really Thought, 'Damn, My Baby Is Ugly'

Having a child is a beautiful, magical miracle that many people feel very lucky to do. It also happens to be one of the most painful things a person could possibly go through, but hey, men are stronger than women right? I digress.

The point is, after all that work, and planning, and pain you'd hope that the final project is at least presentable. But then this alien creature comes sprawling out of your insides and you realize that thing is yours and it's pretty crazy. Obviously, it's beautiful, it's a baby! It's the purest thing ever, but damn they can be funny looking too. It's okay if you've had these thoughts too.

Parents Disclose White Lies They Don't Regret Telling Their Kids

Once you have kids your entire life changes and a lot of adjustments need to be made to keep up with it. You have to try to have healthy snacks around the house, you can't get blackout drunk every Tuesday, and you need to deal with your child's incessant curiosity. I promise you, it never ends. 

Why this? But why that? But why why why?

It can drive you insane. Sometimes it makes your life just a whole lot easier to tell a little white lie. It might not make a whole lot of sense, but it gets the job done. If you run out of useful white-lies, feel free to take any of these that fellow parents shared on Twitter.

Medical Professionals Reveal Ridiculous Baby Names They Tried to Talk Parents Out Of

When it comes to baby names, the limit does not exist. There are so many themes, cultures, biblical references, and more to choose from. However, sometimes choice isn't necessarily a good thing. A Reddit user asked the nurses and midwives of Reddit if they've ever tried to talk parents out of particular baby names, and boy, did they have quite the names to share. Evidently, parents are a little off their rocker sometimes. Scroll down to hear names that are hilariously out of this world.

The sass starts before they can even speak, and it gets worse the older they get, and once puberty hits, forget it; you've already lost. You might be under the illusion that raising daughters is sugar and spice and all things nice, but as many parents can attest to, it's not just boys who are hellraisers. These memes are for any parent raising daughters, who might be wondering where to find their mind again after they've lost it.

Mom Wants To Know If She's Wrong To Blame Six-Year-Old Daughter For Babysitter Quitting

The world can be a scary and daunting place for kids. Learning to navigate their way through it as they develop emotions, opinions and feelings can be challenging. As any parent can attest, kids choose to throw tantrums out of nowhere, always at the worst times. Even though it's because they're feeling scared, insecure, or out of control, it doesn't make them any easier to deal with. So what do you do when your child misbehaves? Do you comfort them, or do you criticize them for acting up and use it as a teaching opportunity to demonstrate that actions have consequences? One mother faced a difficult challenge after her six-year-old's bratty behavior caused their babysitter to quit. She posted in Reddit's Am I The A-hole, asking if she was wrong for telling her daughter that her repeated bad behavior was the reason for their babysitter quitting...

First Date On Valentine’s Day Ends Up As An Awkward Double Date With Guy’s Parents

Whenever Valentine's day rolls around, I can't help but remember the weirdest Valentine's day first date I ever had. This was a few years ago now, but it still feels like just yesterday, because it was literally wild. I agreed to go out with this guy from my gym, let's call him Doug. I was single and ready to be swept off my feet, so when he proposed a special Valentine's day dinner and dancing event, I was psyched! Only when I got there...it turned out to be a double date. WITH HIS PARENTS. And not like "oh we happened to bump into each other and decided to sit together." No. Turns out, he called them the second I said yes and ASKED them to come on a date with us. And so began the most painfully awkward night of my life…
