In brief: Because they care!
Pregnancy is an exciting time and most folks want to be a part of it.
Especially with new moms, they feel that by imparting thier knowledge, whether based on experience or not, they hope to help you with the difficult transition. Remember, every pregnancy and baby is different, so listen to what everyone says, but know that it isn't necessarily true for your own experience!
