Best pregnancy movies

I had rough pregnancies that left me spending a lot of time trying to get comfy on a couch with little to do. Between morning sickness, acid reflux, and pretty much every other pregnancy symptom imaginable, I wasn’t really up for much else. One of my favorite ways to pass the time? Watching movies and television shows that featured a pregnant character.

After re-watching Friends Season 8, the last few episodes of Sex and the City Season 4, and Gilmore Girls Season 3, Episode 13 that features a teenage Loreli giving birth…I was ready to switch things up a bit.

Enter: Pregnancy movies!

Below are some of the best pregnancy movies out there—perfect for watching when you’re waiting for your little one to make her or his debut.

And yes, before you ask, Rosemary’s Baby is on this list. If you’re like me, you may need to take a break from rom-com overload with a flick about a woman carrying the devil’s child. Honestly? It made my awful pregnancy symptoms seem like a walk in the park when I watched it. If it’s not for you (which is completely understandable), feel free to skip right past that one.  🙂

You can check to see if any of these movies are currently available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Go or any other streaming service you may already have. If not, you can rent them from Amazon for a few bucks with the links I’ve included for you below.

Happy pregnant movie viewing, mamas!
