16 Hilarious Memes About Being Pregnant When It's Hot Out

It’s definitely an ~experience~.

Originally Published: 

When I think back on my first pregnancy, I vividly remember those summer months and the sweat, swollen feet, and total exhaustion that I felt. It’s no wonder why there are so many hilarious memes about being pregnant in the summer, because at a certain point, the suffering just becomes flat out funny. Seriously, how can you resist giggling a little every time a new bead of sweat rolls down your back as you sit there and accept it as your new normal?

When I first calculated where I’d be in my pregnancy during the summer, I was pretty excited because it was mostly the second trimester for me. I pictured flowy dresses, ice cream cones, and lounging in a hammock. Needless to say, it was a rude awakening when I found myself chugging water and nearly undressing myself in a hot parking lot while car shopping on a sunny June day. It doesn’t matter where you are in your pregnancy, the summer months are hard, and the only relief is through ice water, air conditioning, and commiserating with fellow moms-to-be.

So, whether you’ve found yourself in this situation, have already experienced it yourself, or you’re well aware that you were lucky to avoid it, you’ll get a good laugh out of these great memes.


So Sweaty

The 70-degree spring weather was hard enough, and now you have to endure summer?!


Sweet, Sweet Relief

This seems like the appropriate place to spend June through August this year. This is where you live now.


What Are Pants?

Putting pants on when you’re pregnant is torture on its own, but trying to pull them up over your sweaty legs in the summer? Nope. Pass the flowy dresses, please.


This Isn’t A Glow

All this time you thought your skin would be glowing throughout pregnancy, but now you know the truth: it was never a glow, it was always sweat.



You should probably just tell your family and friends that you will remain indoors, in the AC, for the remainder of the heatwave. And probably even beyond.


Too Sweaty To Do Anything

Look, the sun and heat will exhaust anyone, and you are carrying another human so you are doubly exhausted. Grab yourself a slushie and rest.



Friends don’t let pregnant friends suffer alone in the summer. Also, ice cream delivery is always appreciated.


Sweating Around The Clock

It literally doesn’t matter what you do, if you’re pregnant in the summer even breathing causes you to sweat. Don’t fight it, just embrace it.


Wise Words From Jessica Simpson

She’s not wrong.


Drips Of Sweat

Is it a bug? Is it a piece of food? Is it a stray thread? No, it’s just a bead of sweat making its way down your body and leaving a wet streak on your shirt in its tracks.


Ice, Ice Baby

You guys go have fun, I’ll just stay here for a little while and cool down.


Boob Sweat

There are no words that can adequately describe the sensation and grossness of boob sweat during pregnancy. Why hasn’t anyone invented some kind of solution to this problem yet?


Mugatu Knows What’s Up

There is nothing as in style to a pregnant woman than an AC unit is in the dead of summer. The only way it could get hotter is if Derek Zoolander posed next to it.


Melting Away

Dial Down The Temperature, Please

You’ll never take winter for granted again after a summer pregnancy.


Is Summer Over Yet?

It’s all fun and games on day one, but a trimester later summer is no longer all that it was once cracked up to be.
