Pregnancy is a unique journey, filled with joy, anticipation, and a fair share of discomfort. For one expectant mother, who's just weeks away from welcoming twins, the journey has been exhausting. The last thing she wants is to engage in idle chit-chat about pregnancies and babies in the waiting room of her doctor's office. Instead, she prefers the solace of her book. But when her silent protest against obligatory pregnancy talk makes other moms-to-be uncomfortable, a conflict arises. Let's dive into her story. 🤰📚

A Battle of Books vs Baby Talk: The Verdict Awaits 📚👶

Our expectant mom, on the brink of welcoming twins, finds herself in a tricky situation. Her choice to read a book instead of engaging in pregnancy talk in her doctor's waiting room has stirred up controversy. Despite her polite refusal, her actions have been deemed uncomfortable by others, leading her doctor to intervene. Unhappy with the situation, she's switched doctors, adding another layer of stress to her already exhausting journey. Now, she seeks validation: Is she in the wrong for wanting to escape into her book rather than partake in the baby chatter? Let's see what the internet has to say about this... 🤔
