Long before Cardi B announced that she was pregnant on Saturday Night Live, fans had long just assumed she was expecting. After trying to tell fans that she was just "getting fat" and taking selfies from the chest up, it was so exciting to see that the world really was going to get a little Cardi. Since that live announcement, Cardi B's pregnancy photos have flooded the internet as she flaunts her stuff. Although she sometimes complains that she's uncomfortable or wants to just sleep all day (who does't?), the rapper is always stunning in her pregnancy photos. Which is precisely a collection of them all in one place is so necessary.
Although she made some appearances while pregnant, in late April she announced that she was done taking the stage. She tweeted, "Okay so i might be off from doing performances for a couple of months but in the meantime imma be working my ass off. So many songs, features to do. Working on a lot of deals i sign up for and most importantly nesting. I'm already overwhelmed from the new work."
But when you're a queen like Cardi B, work also means bestowing selfies upon us common folk, who just live to know what's going on our favorite rapper's world.
Cardi announced her pregnancy during the April 7 episode of SNL, which she performed at and hosted.
Days later, she made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's show and did the monologue with him.

The next day, she made an appearance at SiriusXM Studios in New York City, still showing off her pregnancy bump, according to Harper's Bazaar.

Who Manages To Look So Sleek While Pregnant?

She might not be taking the stage, but that doesn't mean she can't dance at home with her bump.

Dancing is what Cardi was born for.
It's not easy being a busy pregnant woman.
As she gets closer to her due date, Cardi did it up for her fans in an Instagram selfie.
Just because she took time off from doing shows while pregnant doesn't mean that she wasn't busy throughout the whole experience. And she definitely plans on working post-baby, too. She said in an interview with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club that she can't stand people assuming that she can't be a mom and a rapper. "It just really bothers me and it disgusts me because I see a lot of women online like 'I feel sorry for you. your career is over' and it's like why can't I have both? Why do I gotta choose a career or a baby? Why can't I have both. I want both." Cardi added in the same interview, in her typical fashion, "I'm a grown woman. I'm 25 years old. I'm a schmillionaire and I'm prepared for this."
Of course she is. Hopefully we'll get a few more pregnancy looks and selfies before her due date though, because she really does wear it well.
