lol :-p Please note: The title of this blog is very facetious.
However, I went to read some daily nutrition articles, and both times the pages popped up, it was something about ensuring a healthy pregnancy.
As a 27 yr old female, on the verge of getting married within less than a year, this definitely caught my eye. I read them. Things made sense, it was nice information. But it is a LOT of pressure. I have noticed the media really BOMBARD women with things they should be taking/doing/not doing/thinking/feeling/etc etc. to ENSURE that their babies will be be 100% healthy. Which leads one to think, if the baby isn't healthy, then the mother didn't do every thing in her power to make sure it was healthy. (which may not be the case)
Really...HOW DARE you put that much pressure on my ovaries! And this kind of advertisement is everywhere. Its to the point where its almost causing panic in some women.
Don't get me wrong, I obviously think you need to eat right, exercise and take care of yourself...and those things have a huge impact on the babies health, but I think society is very manipulative of women's feelings when it posts stuff like this (I'm not implying that's what Sparkpeople is doing...just society in general).
Any ways...This was a complete tangent of a blog. I meant to post about water consumption and hydration but I think I will leave that for a seperate blog later on in the week lol.
