Whether you are nurturing your baby bump and indulging yourself with a pint of ice cream or even if you just have babies on your mind, the following movies can make you laugh and cry and revel in your pregnancy all over again. Here are our top ten picks of movies for pregnant mommies...
Father of the Bride II: Who didn't love Steve Martin as the anxious and high-strung father of the bride? Well he's back and this time as a grandfather to be. The rest of the cast add to the mayhem and feel good factor. This has to be one of those rare movies where the sequel is even funnier than the original.
Knocked Up: A surprisingly hilarious comedy about deadbeat Seth Rogan and high-powered career woman Katherine Heigl and what happens when a one-night stand leads to an unexpected pregnancy. As stoner Rogan finally realizes that he has to stop being a kid before he can actually raise one, pregnant women all over uncross their fingers about their own less than involved partners.
For Keeps?: This one may look dated and full of cringe worthy eighties fashion, but as Darcy (Molly Ringwald) and Stan (Randall Batinkoff) struggle to deal with their pregnancy and fight for love to triumph, it still strikes a chord with many. Watch as they shelve their big college plans and alter their dreams to fit the new baby into the picture. Full of real-world issues that have remained unchanged even decades later.
Baby Momma: If you thought Amy Poheler and Tina Fey were funny on Saturday Night Live, wait till you see them in this fabulous modern take on pregnancy and motherhood.
Junior: In an exceptionally brave career move, Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as scientist Dr. Alex Hesse who, as part of a research project, gets pregnant. He manages to pull it off in style as well.
Juno: Juno changed the way we looked at teenage pregnancies. Ellen Page as Juno is scathingly witty and her eccentric family charms the audience. The entire film is suffused with a warm and happy glow even when things don't go as planned. Not exactly words you would use when dealing with an unwanted pregnancy and adoption but in Juno they work.
Where The Heart Is: Natalie Portman and Ashley Judd star in this poignant drama-comedy about how a homeless teenager transforms into a super mom. Stock up on the Kleenex for sure.
Nine Months: Who better to play a cad and commitment phobic than the charming Hugh Grant? Rent this one if you want to witness the nine months of pregnancy from your partner's point of view.
Waitress: Keri Russell is an unhappily married waitress who is not exactly thrilled when she learns about her pregnancy. Watch as she changes her mind and understands that everything happens for a reason.
She's Having a Baby: John Hughes takes on the concept of modern parenthood and as always you won't be disappointed. Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth McGovern star as a yuppie couple that struggle to cope with the reality of pregnancy and of being parents.
