As different as pregnancy is for each woman, there are certain things all moms-to-be can all relate to, no matter how smooth or difficult your pregnancy is. There's something about hearing that another woman is feeling the same way you do that creates a sense of camaraderie and the feeling that you're not, in fact, as crazy as you thought. The internet can come to the rescue yet again in the times that you're feeling like you're the only mom who is sick of not being able to see her toes. You're not. These memes, that perfectly sum up pregnancy in all of it's glory, will show you that no, you're not alone, and yes, every other mom feels the same way you do— as uncomfortable, awkward, and beautiful as it is all at once.
Even if you don't know anyone else who is pregnant at the same time as you, there's something comforting about knowing that every mom experiencing some version of the same thing, whether it's the depths of morning sickness, the energized nesting phase, or the fears of your impending labor. Although most of these memes make light of situations that are actually very uncomfortable in the moment, they can serve as a reminder that pregnancy, like all aspects of motherhood, is as laughable as it is stressful (and sometimes painful).
