10 Movies to Avoid While Pregnant

Pregnant or not, I don’t watch scary movies. I also dislike movies that I know are emotional and will inevitably leave me in a pile of my own dirty tissue. Pretty much, I don’t like to get scared or sad for fun for recreation.

My kind of movies are funny, happy, and of the feel good variety.

This past weekend, I went to bed early, so my husband decided to watch Paranormal 2. He said it wasn’t that scary, except for the end {spoiler alert}, when the demon walks off with the baby.

OMG, that type of entertainment is not for me.

In fact, I have a whole list of movies (and books, for that matter) that are not for me, especially while pregnant. You know, the kind of movie that includes something bad happening either to a baby or pregnant lady. Ugh, my heart just can’t take it.
