Pregnancy is that magical time in a woman’s life where she’s glowing and growing through nine blissful months of beautiful body changes while celebrating every little fetal flutter that reminds her life is about to change forever. It’s all baby bumps and rainbows, right? At least that what the ladies on Instagram with perfect skin and flowy maternity dresses blowing on the beach would have you think, but these social media mamas want you to know that sometimes pregnancy is a lot more like having your body invaded by a miniature alien playing Dance Dance Revolution on your internal organs while trying to figure out how you started sprouting hair in places you didn’t know were possible. In the end, it’s all worth it to welcome your new bundle into the family, so let’s toast to all the curious things only pregnant people have the joy of experiencing while they’re counting down to baby time.
The Dad Jokes
We give dads props for giving into our ice cream cravings at midnight and handing us the Kleenex when we’re drowning ourselves in tears because the remote-control batteries died or because we saw a puppy on TV. They put a lot of work into developing those effortlessly witty dad jokes, but there’s times we’d rather they practice their routine a galaxy away from our ears and hormonal feelings.
It’s easy to crack jokes left and right when you aren’t the one toting around a human that will likely enter this world by spelunking their way out of your lady cave. However, you have to give it to @checkyourkidsa2. He honestly hit it out of the park with his one, and his wife probably needs him at the finish line, so we’ll let him live.
