My sister keeps giving me unsolicited advice and it's kind of irriating. I showed her the sonogram pics because I thought she'd want to see them and be happy for me. First, she said: "oh, you're going to keep it?" and then started telling me that her next door neighbor who is bipolar took medication the entire pregnancy and now has a baby with heart problems.
I explained to her that I asked my doctors what they think and they said it was ok to stay on all but one drug. Then my sister said something about how she quit all her meds during pregnancy like Adderall. Well, I am pretty sure that a medication like Adderall is a lot different than something like a beta blocker or a mood stabilizer.
After that, she proceeded to tell me that babies are a lot of work (no, really?), how she got no help from her boyfriend for quite a few months, and so on.
And sure, while my boyfriend wasn't happy about the baby at first, he's being more supportive and I am sure he'll be a great dad. He has a full time, good paying job and we are on track to buy a house before the baby is born. I don't undersand what the problem is exactly, but I am guessing it's my sister projecting onto me.
