27 women share the dumbest advice they received while pregnant.


Pregnant women go through a lot. Not only do they have to incubate a human in their bodies for nine months while dealing with puffiness, back pain and nausea, they also have to deal with people giving them advice—much of it unsolicited.

Someone asked pregnant or formerly pregnant folks of Reddit: "what is the worst/craziest advice someone has given you about your pregnancy?" These 27 women shared the bizarre, bonkers, and straight-up terrible advice they got about pregnancy and birth. To quote #9, "people are crazy."

1.) From fallingkites88:

Oh! I was told that I need to shave down there or the baby will get carpet burn. Like.. Wut?

2.) From melbell518:

To not drink water because it causes nausea.

3.) From hydrawoman:

When I was pregnant past my due date a co-worker advised me to drink cod liver oil mixed with vodka. Apparently this mixture would upset my digestive system, give me horrible diarrhea and thus trigger labor contractions.

Edit: I did not drink this combo to help with being overdue. I ended up several days later being medically induced and labor/delivery was swift and baby healthy. He is a grown man now.
