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.
