30 Pregnancy Stories to Make You Laugh Out Loud

Pregnancy is a battle, and sometimes if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry, so making the most of it through humor is key! If you’re pregnant or have been pregnant, you know you can’t go through it without there being some funny stories to tell. I absolutely love hearing funny pregnancy stories, so I thought I’d share a few that I’ve collected from some other mamas who were generous enough to share a funny pregnancy story or two with me!

“My mom and I were driving to my brother’s house for thanksgiving and I saw a pie shop. I started sobbing, while saying “I want pie mama” and she laughed so hard it made my crying worse. Very embarrassing moment, because she told my entire family”

“I have this issue that started sometime in my third trimester and hasn’t stopped even though my kid is 3 now…If I get sick and go into a coughing fit I pee myself. I had to start wearing bladder leakage pads when I have a cold!”

“I taught high school science when I was pregnant up until I had the baby. I obviously have many interesting stories but the best was on my due date. My students were super confused as to why I was at school and not having the baby. One of my super naïve students asked me in front of the class if he could catch the baby because it was my due date and I was going to have her. He added that he’s a football player so he can catch pretty well. And he was 100% serious, hand motions, crouching and everything. Needless to say the other teachers in the room and I died laughing; the other students were either appalled or in agreeance and we decided to have a little discussion about birth… And I peed myself laughing…but it was worth it”

“They had my walking around in the hospital when my water broke and I slipped and fell on my ass. The nurses were frozen until they realized I couldn’t get up because I was laughing so hard.”

“I tripped and fell on lunch break from work at Taco Bell. I’m a nurse so when I got back to work the girls wanted to check my bumps and scrapes and bandage me up, etc. I probably hadn’t shaved in two weeks. I could barely reach or keep my balance in our tiny shower so I really only shaved if I had a dr. appointment. So embarrassing!”

“My son came very quick and I just had eaten curry. I pooped on the table and I know it because I had no drugs during my labor. The nurse was nice and handled it but I was embarrassed!”

“My first son was born in November, and I worked right up to my due date. The entire office was on red alert watching over me—the office manager had contingency plans in case I went into labor at work during a snow storm. I think it involved covering the break room table with newspaper…Also, one of my male co-workers would throw all kinds of weird breast feeding advice at me because his wife was a La Leche League leader (he meant well…)”

“When my water broke with my son it wouldn’t stop! (Duh!) My daughter kept telling people after that mommy was leaking all over the house!”

“I really wanted vegetables one night. Like a hearty roasted vegetable salad. We couldn’t think of anything and finally settled on Pick Up Sticks. I was so disappointed, angry, frustrated and hungry!! And I started to cry saying that it wasn’t fair!”

“When I was 9 months pregnant with my daughter I lived in Hawaii and there were geckos living in the house. One day I was washing grapes and dropped a few on the floor. Not being able to see my feet, when I stepped on something squishy that popped under my foot I thought it was a grape. So I wipe my foot on the kitchen rug and go to clean up what I thought was a grape only to realize it was a gecko that I stepped on! Being an overly-emotional pregnant woman I cried like a baby and buried the tissue with the gecko guts and what was left of the gecko behind our house.”

“I put the cheese in the drawer and the knife in the fridge. My husband was deployed, I continued to eat, feed my kids, etc… I only found out only 4 days later when my drawer smelled. Then I cried about it for a good 15 mins.”

“I was flying solo back home with my son while pregnant with #2 (husband deployed again), I packed up, pulled my kid out of school, had a friend drop us off, and was ready to check in. I found we weren’t flying until the next day.”

“I didn’t get emotional and cry during my pregnancy, I had laughing fits! My husband would say something or something would pop up in my head and I’d start giggling only to not stop for like, half an hour. When it would start my husband would turn to me and go “oh no”, haha!”

“I talked utter nonsense in my sleep where my husband was left tired and confused.”

“Literally, I would pee myself when I sneeze or cough! Like, I had stash of clean undies in my purse when I’m out of the house so I can change. LOL! Until now, I find myself crossing my legs when I’m going to do both to hold it in. I no longer pee myself now but I think my muscle remembers it so it does it automatically. LOL!!!”

“I put the cheese in the drawer and the knife in the fridge. My husband was deployed, I continued to eat, feed my kids, etc… I only found out only 4 days later when my drawer smelled. Then I cried about it for a good 15 mins. Another time I was flying solo back home with my son while pregnant with #2 (husband deployed again), I packed up, pulled my kid out of school, had a friend drop us off, and was ready to check in. I found we weren’t flying until the next day.”

“I didn’t get emotional and cry during my pregnancy, I had laughing fits! My husband would say something or something would pop up in my head and I’d start giggling only to not stop for like, half an hour. When it would start my husband would turn to me and go “oh no”, haha!”

“I ordered lemonade and then cried about it in the Chick-fil-a drive through! I hate lemonade.”

“My husband and I were visiting his family. Suddenly I felt sick, so I ran to the bathroom. As I was throwing up, I also managed to pee myself. Thankfully, I was able to get his attention from around the corner to let him know that we needed to GO!”

“I naively went to a standard OB appointment for our surrogate. She was about 6 months pregnant with our daughter at the time. After the appointment, I waited outside the door for her to come out. A few minutes turned into a half an hour. As soon as she opened the door, she burst out loudly, “My hoo-ha is purple! Like Barney the dinosaur purple!” Trying to keep my cool I asked if I should be worried? Her response, “nah the Dr just treated me for yeast infection”. Ahhh… awesome. So I left to get back to work. A few minutes after I sat at my desk, I received a text message. It was an under carriage picture of a purple vagina in all of its glory. My eyes will never un-see that. To this day, I hate the color purple.”

“While standing in line at the grocery store once, a random woman came up to me and rubbed my 8 month belly. I of course, feeling violated immediately returned the gesture. Yes, I rubbed her belly!
She was disgusted. She started “you can’t just…” she never finished. She just walked away. One lady to the side of me laughed hysterically while another woman in front of me kept saying, “good for you!” It was my first “mama bear” moment.”

“While attending MommyCon at 6 months pregnant, I lost my wits over avocado. I wanted to eat, but all the lines for food were 45 min long. So I stopped at submarina and ordered a chicken breast something…with avocado. They were out of avocado. I don’t know why but I went to the restroom and bawled my eyes out because they ran out of avocado. I was so hungry and tired and just wanted some dang avocado!”

“During my first pregnancy. I put dish soap in the freezer, strawberries on top of the fridge and an empty lunch bag in the refrigerator….all in one day.”

“I almost strangled my husband for eating my sweet treats. I bought some I specifically New he didn’t like. He them and all the other “sweets” He even ate a snickers bar I had hidden. I never really craved sweet while pregnant but when I did the craving was strong. To be fair he was preparing to take the CPA exam, but I damn near almost killed him. In the end I just cried.”

“One time my baby was kicking so hard, she woke my husband up. Apparently my pregnant belly was snuggled up to him and the movement jolted him awake.”

“I was pregnant with my first child and sitting at home alone on the couch watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. It had gone to commercial and was running one of those ASPCA commercials for abused animals. When my husband walked through the door all he saw was me sitting on the couch bawling my eyes out. He instantly ran over to me to see what was wrong and all I could say was I wanted to send money to the abused animals! I’m not usually a big animal lover, so he really cracked up since this was so out of the ordinary for me. The combination of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and that stupid commercial mixed with the pregnancy hormones had me such a mess lol”

“I am not a small woman – 5′ 10″ and never could be called skinny. But my first pregnancy I was ENORMOUS!
We lived in an old farmhouse with a wonderfully comfy claw-foot tub, the kind where the slope of the back is just right for leaning against while you read in the tub. My husband had been out of town on business and was coming home that evening. I did the chores and fed the chickens, then went up to have a bath. I got in the tub at about 1 PM, with a book and a cup of tea, ready to relax. As the water chilled I used my toes to turn on the hot and add a little. After about an hour I set aside my book and started to get out of the tub. I couldn’t do it. I could not get my legs under me far enough to stand up – my belly was in the way. The tub walls were too high for me to pull and push myself up with my arms and too narrow for me and my belly to turn around and get on my hands and knees and get out that way. My husband got home about 7:30 and called out to me. I answered that I was in the tub. He came upstairs and I asked him to help me out of the tub. As he did so, I explained what had happened and how I had been trapped in the tub for over 6 hours; he laughed so hard I thought he was going to drop me back in the tub!”

“I have a super embarrassing one lol but no shame in my game. When I was pregnant with my daughter over the summer, she was sitting really low and in my back. Towards the end she was constantly pushing on my bladder and I constantly felt like I had to pee or poop. I was at my husband’s gym helping him clean and I was super gassy. Decided to let one rip to see if it would help and shat myself.”

“So I was pregnant with my son and we were pulling into a store’s parking lot (it may have been target…) and I feel this huge pressure. I tell my husband I need out of the car immediately and he’s like babe I’m going to pull through this parking spot to be facing out (like he does at every opportunity) so I finally get out of the car and am trying to get to the store and my water breaks. So I’m half jogging to the store but freaking out and of course the women’s bathroom has three women coming out of it as I’m desperate to get in so I’m kinda pushing people out of the way ruder than I’ve ever been in my life. I have no idea who saw me doing my weird pregnant lady run or who had to clean that mess off the floor….can never forget where I was that day. Haha.”

“I was pregnant with my son and at the ultrasound, we were told the umbilical cord was attached to the side instead of the center. I was extremely upset by this news and couldn’t stop crying on the way home. Have you ever heard of a person having their belly button on the side of their body instead of being centered? Yeahh, me neither! So of course I was very distressed my child would grow up with his belly button on his side and was worried how other people would treat him. My husband even gave my unborn son the nickname “little Sammy side door” to try and find some humor in the situation. My husband ended up calling his mom, who was a pediatric nurse, to give her the distressing news. He calmly explained the bad situation and her response in a very stern voice, ‘Derek, that’s absolutely the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard it my life! It’s not possible for your belly button to be on the side of your body! The Dr. meant it was off center on the placenta, not the baby’s actual body!'”

Aren’t these amazing?! I honestly feel like I can’t even top these funny pregnancy stories!! But I have pregnancy-farted in public and blamed a dog or someone else, I’ve peed in the shower because it was just more convenient, and when my water broke, I showed up to the hospital wearing an entire towel as a pad. Trust me, whatever happens during your pregnancy, laugh at it, because you will never again have as good of an excuse to pee your pants a little bit!!

If you like it, Pin It!

These funny pregnancy stories will probably make you pee your pants, even if you're not pregnant!

    My favorite was putting things in the wrong places. I also taught high school biology during my first trimester of my first pregnancy. It’s great that we can laugh after.
