Pop Culture Pregnancy/Baby Moments

With my pregnancy winding down, I’ve had to really take it easy. This involves a lot of time on the couch, watching movies, TV, and balancing snacks on my belly. This afternoon, I started thinking about all of my favorite pregnancy-related movie and TV show moments. I know there HAS to be more than this, but these were all the ones my pregnant-brain could think up!

 

1. She’s Having a Baby, My Baby and Me

Who doesn’t love I Love Lucy? Lucille Ball was and is my favorite all-time comedienne. She was ground-breaking, not only for having her own show, but for being the first woman to be on television whilst with child. (Although, the studio wouldn’t allow her to say “pregnant” on air due to censors, but still! Ground-breaking, people!) This episode where Lucy finds out she’s preggo and decides to tell Ricky always makes me grin like a goober!

 

2. “‘Ello Dad!”

Ah yes, all of the Whovians know exactly what I’m talking about already. The episode titled The Doctor’s Daughter had me freaking out before I watched it. I was like, “Who the heck does the Doctor get pregnant?! Is it Donna?! Does The Doctor get a message from the alternate universe where Rose is saying he has to pay child support?! WHAT IS GOING ON?!”
(Sidebar: The woman who played the daughter {Georgia Moffett} is actually the daughter of Peter Davison, the fifth Doctor. And, she is now married to David Tennant. And they have daughter. Weird, right?!)

 

3. Teenage Pregnancy: Awkward and Uncomfortable. Put it music? Still awkward, but now with rhythm.

First, let me preface by saying I’m not a “Gleek”. The acting tends to wear on my nerves and I get irritated when they take songs I love and destroy them. However, my sister had me watch a few episodes and I’m actually glad she did. This one in particular made me giggle out of pure embarrassment. Cheerleader Quinn has not revealed to her parents that she totally pulled a Juno and got knocked up in high school. Finn, being the sweetie that he is, wants to show his support (and singing chops) by spilling the beans over dinner…and music.

(R.I.P. Cory 😦 )

 

4. The One Where Rachel Has the Baby

You know I can’t have a countdown without my Friends!

The episodes where Rachel goes past her due date and then gives birth to her and Ross’s love child always cracks me up. And now that I’m in the “I’m-so-uncomfortable-just-breathing-is-difficult” stage of pregnancy, I can really relate to the girl from Long Island.

 

5. “Shane, you are NOT the father!”

Straight out of an episode of Maury–well, an episode that includes a zombie apocalypse–comes Lori’s baby daddy drama on The Walking Dead.  I honestly think that Rick is Judith’s father; I mean, the girl’s not tan enough–or creepy enough–to be Shane’s. That being said, when the episode came along that Lori was pregnant, it made me like her a little bit better. Mostly because its hard to wish anything bad on a pregnant woman (even if that woman is and idiot). Then when Maggie brought the baby into the world in a scene that terrified me to my very soul, I couldn’t help but shed a tear. And then laugh at the internet memes that popped up just a few hours later:
