Joann from Bensonhurst
I don't know what the deal is, but the minute you get pregnant, it's like everyone and their mother suddenly feel the need to fill your head with all sorts of advice about what you should and shouldn't be doing now and after your baby arrives.

And honestly, sometimes you hear so many conflicting tips on how to do things correctly that it can be beyond overwhelming and hard to tell who has the right intentions and who is simply trying to put their two cents in. And that's why I'm loving this new episode of JoAnn From Bensonhurst from CafeMom Studios -- because she tells it like it is, and gives valid (and hilarious) advice without coming right out and telling pregnant women what to do.
Take a look at this video to hear what JoAnn has to say about getting pregnant, cravings, working during pregnancy, and yes -- even having sex with a big ol' baby bump.
LOL!! Isn't JoAnn hysterical? And she gives one of the best pieces of advice that any pregnant woman can ever receive -- "Don't listen to anybody but your doctor!" I try to tell new moms the same thing -- throw all the baby books out the window and do what works for you, not what your mother, mother-in-law, or Susie Q down the street tells you is the best thing.
