Removable pads on tops are ridiculous. Sew them in or design the top to not need them. The removable pads just shift around and fall out in the wash.
Terrifying FTM's seems to be the local sport in my area. When I tell people we're having a baby, 90% of the time the reaction is this: "Congrats! You will never sleep again, and you will never see your friends again, and you will never have sex again, and the baby will cry constantly, and you will be stressed out and unhappy all the time. We are so excited for you!"
