How is it that I am not even pregnant anymore and I still have to feel guilty about what I shoved into my pie-hole during the months that I was gestating a human? My toddler is a picky eater and apparently it’s all my fault – according to an op-ed I read in the New York Times this week titled, Bad Eating Habits Start In the Womb. More
Seeing a man wear a fake pregnant belly and grimace in pretend pain doesn’t make me laugh. More
Speaking of “mothers” and “public”, it’s time to get into the real meat of all this. First of all, I’d like to say that the amount of abuse I face when out around town with a cat in a stroller has been surprisingly minimal. I get the odd drive-by shouting when people see me pushing a stroller while smoking a cigarette, but I just throw my head back and start cackling, because the joke is on them, there’s a cat in there.

I think we sometimes forget that mommyshaming can go both ways. Yes, it often comes from sanctimonious women who want to make average moms feel like crap, but sometimes average moms can be the bullies to. I think this is … More

When we were expecting our first child, we agonized over trying to find the right time to tell my stepdaughter. She was 10 at the time and very used to the way things were. It was just the three of us when she visited – herself, her dad and I – and I think she really liked it that way. More
It’s getting slightly less acceptable for mainstream media to body shame non-pregnant women, so now they have moved on to pregnant women so they can do it under the guise of WON’T SOMEONE THINK OF HER UNBORN BABY?
Always make sure that it’s cool if you pop in before you show up. I think the movies have led us all to believe that woman has baby, sleeps a little and presto! Everything is back to normal. Maybe this is true for some people – but not everyone. More
I can’t believe this has to be a law. You don’t just go around touching people you don’t know. Every one has a legal right to have their body left alone by others, don’t they? More

To all the ladies out there embarking on your pregnancy journey for the first time, don’t be scurred. Pregnancy may not have been my favorite time in life, but it does pass in a flash. If you start hating your life somewhere in those 10 long months, take comfort in knowing that you’re not alone. More
My partner didn’t give up drinking when I was pregnant. Neither did my friends, family, or other beings that were around me regularly. I don’t think I ever would have asked them a) because they all enjoy social drinking and b) because they had to deal with my pregnant self and c) because why should they? They weren’t pregnant. More
I’m not clear what planet Jezebel writer Tracy Moore is living on, but we’re definitely not existing on the same one. I just hope that women on the fence about becoming pregnant don’t take her “pregnancy fixes everything” manifesto to heart.
