30 Adorably Pregnant Animals That Were Spotted And Snapped At Just The Right Moment

Published 1 year ago

While pregnancy is supposed to give a beautiful glow and is one of the most romanticized feats for us glorified mammals, the reality can be a tad tedious in terms of the toll it takes on the physical body. It appears that the same can be said for animals as it can for humans about how it makes expecting mama’s look. While we understand carrying a little one inside one’s body is no laughing matter, it bodes well to take everything in life with a lighter view.

If you’re pregnant or just in need of a cute pick-me-up after a Debbie-Downer of a day, skim through this adorable collection of pet mama’s snaps that are sure to put a smile on your face with their roly-poly preggers bellies and the all-too relatable expressions on their faces.

#24 This Rat Getting An Ultrasound

In the world of animal sheltering, expecting the unexpected is pretty much par for the course. Well, we’re not the only ones “expecting” these days…it turns out that Polly the rat is pregnant! This wouldn’t be quite as much of a surprise if it weren’t for Polly coming to HSCC with her “pal” Tony and both were assumed to be males  Thanks to our new on-site ultrasound, our suspicions over Polly’s growing tummy were confirmed. Never a dull moment at HSCC!

#27 Our Firstborn Is All Grown Up And Soon To Become A Mummy Too

Poor thing, I know exactly how she feels, heavy, massive and fed up. (Though she was pretty massive before getting preggers, her belly didn’t however quite drag on the floor a few months back). We could feel the little piglets kicking through her belly. A few more weeks to go! Did you know, that a pig’s normal gestation period is 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days?

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
