It’s totally normal for women to have lots of questions when they’re pregnant, especially for the first time. There are so many new changes and sensations, and asking questions is the best way to be an advocate for the baby that’s growing. One OBGYN’s office has compiled a list of their most frequently asked questions, but the answers aren’t anything you’d typically expect from a doctor.

Reddit User YellowWoodenTable was in the waiting room of her obstetrician’s office when she spotted this Pregnancy Q&A posted on the wall. She snapped a picture and shared it to the Reddit thread r/BabyBumps/, where it quickly grabbed almost a thousand upvotes. It’s not hard to see why:


While these are very typical questions for expecting parents, the humorous responses are definitely not typical answers. Some of the answers might be a bit sarcastic (Q: Should I have a baby after 35? A: No, 35 children is enough.), most are rooted in fact.

Q: What’s the most reliable method to determine a baby’s sex? A: Childbirth.
Savage, but true!

Q: My childbirth instructor says it’s not pain I’ll feel during labor, but pressure. Is she right? A: Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.
That is so accurate it hurts. LITERALLY.

Q: I’m two months pregnant now. When will my baby move? A: With any luck, right after he finishes college.
Maybe sooner, if you’re lucky!

I am totally here for humorous pregnancy advice. It’s a scary time, and who doesn’t like to giggle right before they get an ultrasound wand shoved up inside of them? Laughter is the best medicine, after all…even if laughing makes pregnant women pee a little.
