25 Hilarious Pregnancy Memes That Prove Growing a Human Is No Joke

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing… when you’re not going through it. Of course, there are some favorable aspects, but mostly it’s just having cravings, back pain, and needing to pee. It’s absolutely worth it to gain a new member to your family, but that doesn’t mean you can’t laugh at the hard parts.

Pregnancy can get anyone down but we ask you to take a deep breath. Now, get ready for the best medicine of all, laughter. Expecting mothers have created memes that perfectly illustrate the struggles of pregnancy and to let you know that you are not alone! Go grab some ice cream (better still, make your significant other to fetch you some ice cream), and get ready for one enjoyable meme-scroll.
