Despite pregnancy quotes, or any quotes really, appearing seemingly pointless, they can be pretty inspirational, and pregnancy ones especially can put you in a particularly good mood.
They’re also good to read, as well as being pretty fun. They make you excited for the moment of childbirth, and all the moments that follow, including your baby’s first steps, their first birthday, and so on.
Not only do they make you eager to enjoy the first time you’ll experience these special moments, they also make you look forward to the second and the third (excluding the teenage years and their girlfriends or boyfriends).
On top of this, you can also share them with your family members and close friends and make them enthusiastic for all the wonderful times you have to come (you’ll probably make them reminisce too, or become excited for their own future).
But in my opinion, the best, most useful thing a pregnancy quote can do is supply pregnant mothers with a fun, cute tweet when they’ve run out of ideas.
Some pregnancy quotes
There are thousands of pregnancy quotes available simply by searching for them. Some of what you’ll find is a heap of cringe worthy rubbish, while some actually having meaning to them as they were wrote by mothers themselves. Here are some example who were written by famous mums:
“It is the most powerful creation to have life growing inside of you, there is no bigger gift” – Beyoncé
“I think what surprised me the most about motherhood, as sentimental as it sounds, is how much I love my kids. I mean, I just can’t believe it. It’s like a whole new dimension in emotion that I’ve never experienced” – Gwyneth Paltrow
“I suddenly love citrus stuff, oranges and lemonade – I can’t get enough of it – and I didn’t really care for any of that before. And I can’t deal with things that are too pungent. I used to love truffles; now I can’t. I also have a hard time eating steak” – Jessica Alba (The thought of no steak would really put me off pregnancy, lucky we are all different, right?)
“Becoming a mum allowed me to just relax in a way I never had before. I used to care a lot about what I looked like in public or what people thought of me. I care at least 40 percent less now” – Busy Philipps
“You hear people say it all the time, how life changes so drastically. But you can’t possibly grasp how beautiful that is until you have your child” – Pink
“When I got pregnant, I had so much testosterone in me that I grew a beard. I only cropped it last night. It’s actually true. I’m not telling a joke. I actually have a beard, but I’m proud of it. I call it Larry” – Adele (I wonder what made her think of Larry, I think I’d go with Paul or something)
“When I was pregnant, I just wanted to get lots and lots of animals, for some reason. We talked about cats but David said absolutely not” – Victoria Beckham (Oh come on David, not even one?)
And my personal favourite:
“I sometimes forget I’m pregnant” – Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge
As well as celebrities having made cute pregnancy quotes, there are many motherhood related famous quotes from movies that can be pretty relatable and moving:
“I could so go for like a huge cookie right now, with like, a lamb kebab simultaneously” – Juno from “Juno”
“If I knew I’d have a rack this gorgeous, I would have gotten knocked up years ago” – Jules from “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”
“I look ridiculous. These jeans are elastic on the top. I feel like I’m wearing a condom on my stomach” – Thea
“Trust me, you don’t look like you’ve been anywhere near a condom” – Lisa from “Labour Pains”
“I want drugs, massive amounts of drugs, I want the maximum legal limit of drugs” – Jenna from “Waitress” (Nice way to sum up pregnancy Jenna)
Another perk of pregnancy quotes is that they can give you beautiful ideas for pregnancy tattoos, which could look adorable inked over your heart (or your stomach, which might make more sense).
And nothing is stopping you from stealing these quotes and taking the credit yourself (except maybe copyright, and I wouldn’t suggest copying a celebrity, although it could be a good way to get them knocking at your door asking you to delete that Facebook status).
So while you’re relaxing with your Comfort U Total Body Pillow, grab your phone and look through some quotes, because that way you’ll definitely be going to bed with a smile on your face tonight.
