Pregnancy can be a confusing time for expecting moms thanks to the barrage of new information coming from all angles—most of it unsolicited. In general, we'd say to ignore it unless it's from a person who has given birth before or a medical professional. But that doesn't mean we can't be amused by the old-school tips from your 105-year-old great-grandmother or the odd suggestions by total strangers.

On Reddit, moms were asked to share the craziest advice they got while they were pregnant, and the responses did not disappoint. Here are some of the funniest and most downright bizarre:
