Anyone else dealing with friends commenting / criticizing your food choices? My husband and I are in agreement that we'd prefer to be overly cautious on the suggested foods to avoid during pregnancy (avoiding sushi, lunch meats, soft cheeses, etc.). However, I rarely discuss it with anyone nor do I care if others want to avoid it - I strongly believe each person needs to do what's right with them and what they're comfortable with.
In the last few weeks we've gone out to dinner and have had two separate friends get on my case about not eating things. Once was in relation to sharing an appetizer (I said I had no problem if they ordered it but wouldn't have any myself only to get grilled on why I wouldn't eat it) and the other I discreetly asked the waiter if it would be possible to omit that ingredient from my meal. Both times I got a lecture on why it's not necessary to not eat those things and millions of pregnant women eat them and are fine. So annoying - I never would lecture to a friend about how they parent or choices they make for their kids. Not sure why people feel the need to comment and judge me on me and my husband's choices for our baby (especially those that clearly have no negative impact!). Anyways - just a vent - curious if others are experiencing the same thing.
