"You know you're pregnant when getting out of bed actually means rolling out of bed.” — Daviane

Pregnancy is a wild time and experience for a woman. It’s essentially nine consecutive months of physical and emotional struggles and pains. Sure, those hectic nine months culminate in a child that you’ll love and adore forever, but the journey to get there can be summed up in a few words: beautiful and horrifying!

Along the way you’ll encounter the different stages of pregnancy. The first stage, is the first trimester. Otherwise know n as the “barely pregnant” stage. The second, is the second trimester. Otherwise known as the “cute pregnant” stage. Finally, and most cumbersome of all, comes the third trimester. Otherwise known as the “REALLY pregnant” stage!


In absolute hilarious fashion, Babble aimed to encapsulate the feeling of being in the “REALLY pregnant” stage. To do so, they asked dozens of different mums what it’s like to be in the third trimester. the results were absolutely hysterical!

Check out the list and let us know if you can relate, mums!
