Television and film might sometimes exaggerate the whole pregnant woman stereotype, but there is surprising amount of truth behind those played out punchlines. Yes, at some point, getting in and out of any kind of seated position will prove challenging. Yes, you will probably get a really weird craving and for some reason you need it at that exact minute. Yes, morning sickness sucks because it doesn't only occur in the morning, as its name implies. At times may feel like you're going crazy, but you're definitely not alone. A quick peruse of tweets about pregnancy can instantly put your mind at ease.

Even celebrities, like Chrissy Tiegen, tweet about pregnancy moments that are both hilarious and honest.
