13 Third Trimester Memes to Get You Through the Longest 12 Weeks of Your Life

By  | 

Congratulations! You’ve made it to the hallowed third trimester of pregnancy. You’ve survived morning sickness, inappropriately-timed gas, constipation, and waking up one day to realize none of your clothes fit. You’ve successfully grown an actual human being inside of your body for 28 weeks, and you can see the finish line. Feels good, right? And we bet you’re thinking, “Wow! The first two trimesters flew by, this baby will be here before you know it!” Well, lower yourself into the closest chair you can find, because we have some bad news for you: this final trimester will feel longer than ANY OTHER PERIOD OF TIME in your entire life. There seems to be some correlation between how big you get and how slow time becomes, and towards the end, it slows to an actual crawl.

The good news is, it will eventually be over, and you will no longer have a squatter in your uterus. Until that day comes, it helps to laugh at the state you’re in, and we think these hilarious third trimester memes will get your belly shaking like a bowl full of jelly (but not too hard, because pee).

1. It’s called sweat.

2. Sleep? What’s that?

If you’re not getting up every 30 minutes to pee, are you really even pregnant?

3. Grunt.

Prepare to sound like an Olympic weightlifter every time you get out of a chair.

4. Parts of your body will hurt that you didn’t even know existed.

5. Forget about sleeping at night, but just try to stay awake the rest of the day.

Don’t feel bad if you fall asleep … everywhere.

Will it be forever? No. But maybe yes. But hopefully no.

9. People mean well, they really do.

But if they could all shut up about how long you’ve been pregnant, that would be great.

10. Buy dresses. A LOT of dresses.

If you’re going somewhere you need to wear pants, it’s not worth going.

11. Magical!

It’s beautiful before and after the third trimester.

12. Do people even realize twins aren’t all that common?

no it isn't twins

“How many have you got in there?”

13. Such a helpful suggestion!

People will tell you to have sex to induce labor. “People” should mind their business.
