The Best Awkward Pregnancy Photos

By Amy Morrison

I didn’t want to have any pictures of myself pregnant but a friend told me how much she regretted not at least having one or two shots because her kids wanted to know what she looked like when she was pregnant with them, so gave in and I took a couple of mug-shot style pictures of myself so it was documented.

With that in mind, you may want to capture your pregnancies in a photograph to preserve the wonder of life so I chose a few gems from for a little inspiration.

The Best Awkward Pregnancy Photos

“Karen, seeing as you’re pregnant, let’s put you at the top of the family photo where the air is thinner. Karen? Karen?!?!”


I can appreciate what they were trying to do here but if your Christmas photo looks like it should have a “becka, becka, bow wow” soundtrack playing in the background, then you may want to reconsider the card.


I can’t decide what I like better, the garbage bag dress, the swamp or him wearing black socks in the water (or at least the illusion of it.)


“That’s it, Steve. A little further back, a little further. Now crouch down. Perfect!” I think the ex-boyfriend may have been the photographer in this one.


This reminds me of a picnic. A good idea in theory but uncomfortable in practice.


Words can’t describe this photo. Oh wait a minute, they can!


“It’s going to be a good year, Laura. A very Goodyear indeed.”


At first I thought “Nothing symbolizes maternity better than a watermelon and a gun” and then I thought “Actually, nothing *does* symbolize maternity better than a watermelon and a gun”. Bravo Mad’am.


“If I’m holding the baby then why do I still feel fat?”


Um, yeah. No. I’m just going to go with a solid no on this one.


Why do I feel like this woman was talked into this? I could see her thinking, “I’m just too tired to argue plus the kids won’t be able to take off because hockey equipment will slow them down and I’ll hold their heads. I’m sure it will look fine.”



“Okay, I’ll do your ‘Hoop, der it is’ idea but just don’t show my face”


May I call you Kung Fu Panda? Why certainly, may I deliver a front snap-kick to your pills?


There’s a good chance that this baby is going to require sunscreen of SPF 50 and higher.


I can’t help but hear the Jaws theme when I see this photo.


Jerry felt pretty cocky about taking the last bag of Oreos a pregnant lady was reaching for at Wegman’s, until his dismembered body was later found in the forest just outside of town.


Shhh, he falls asleep like this all the time. Just give him a minute.


Proud and noble, Donna figured the tutu and legs she found at Build-A-Bear would cleverly disguise her growing belly.


It’s all fun and games until someone gets ingested by a tree.


Hearing only “topless and melons”, he was sorely disappointed when he showed up for the photoshoot.


“Hey, lady. Get away from my picnic! Fuck!”


“Okay, well be sure to take a shot that I can send to Aunt Cathy. Just because wouldn’t come to the wedding doesn’t mean she’s not excited about the baby.”


Tired and exhausted from noodling for catfish, Carol decided to take a rest on the riverbank while keeping an eye out for gators.


Oh snap, stolen mini-mime vest and pants!


Hush, hush sweet little man-baby. Everything’s going to be alright.


I agree that the question mark is vital on this man’s t-shirt. Where is he looking? Why did he feel the need to layer two black tees? Why isn’t he happy? How do they get their hostas in the background to grow so well?


Quickly wrapping the table cloth around her naked body and running outside, she still wasn’t fast enough to catch the ice-cream truck.


Cat’s is the second longest running musical of all time, therefore, this image is timeless! Stick that in your bum and lick it.


I hope this is hanging over the fireplace for when their sassy mouthed 13-year old daughter brings her friends over.


So get out there with your cameras and document your blossoming belly, you crazy gals! Happy snappin’!
