I knew all this because I was ----OBSESSED!!!---- with babies as a child (I still am!) And the only books I would read was baby books and pregnancy books etc (okay not completely true, but I was really obsessed with babies and I would really read all the books). ...seriously if you want babies, you would learn about this stuff.TheCoyoteBat wrote: ↑Fri Aug 10, 2018 1:35 amI don't know if it is because my mom is an RN so I grew up around medical information and how bodies change/grow with age and pregnancy--I've also seen her pregnant with my two younger siblings--but when Colleen goes on her long discussions and lectures on how a woman's body changes with pregnancy, I couldn't help but say "UHH HUHHHH" and nod and roll my eyes because it was common knowledge for me. (EDIT to add: I also wanted to be a midwife when I was a Freshman in High School, so I got curious and read deeper into things. It's kinda funny that I'm about to graduate college with a degree in English and a teacher certification, but that is besides the point. If I could find info at 14/15 so easily, IDK why a 31 y/o couldn't?!)
She acts as if she's the only person on Youtube to acknowledge and show the trials of being pregnant or as if the entire world will be exposed to her content. I've watched Lindsey DeFranco's pregnancy and saw that she was in pain/sick all or, at least, quite a bit of the time and I never felt annoyed with her and her discussions about what's happening to her body and didn't feel as if I was being talked down to (or patronized like Colleen's kinda came off as since it seems she is trying to talk to her younger audience). Heck, I'm even following the LaBrant Family onYouTube and Sav was miserable in the beginning of her pregnancy and it is still enjoyable to watch their videos (of course Cole is filming most of their stuff so she can just lay and rest without the worry of making content, but still).
Both of these women struggled/still are struggling with their pregnancies, but were able to show that its not all roses and rainbows while showing that they feel fortunate and excited about their pregnancies. They treated it all as a part of the experience. But, as Colleen said in her vlog, she can't combine the two as one experience--instead, she HAS to separate the two as if being grateful and excited overshadows the pain and "bad parts" of pregnancy.
I wonder if Colleen knows what Google is? And if she knows that there IS over books than her weird ass books?
Also I don't know any woman that wasn't in any pain and wasn't sick. Shut up Colleen
