Fed up with pregnancy?

Human pregnancy is about 9 months long.


Elephant pregnancies are are about 2 years long.

I’m sure you’re pretty grateful you are not an elephant although perhaps sometimes you feel a bit like one.

Hamster pregnancies last about 22 days.


I’ll bet you’re also kind of glad you’re not a hamster.

Sometimes when you are exhausted and throwing up and in pain and kept awake and in tears and huffing and puffing, it feels waaaaay too long.

Sometimes when there is no room and not enough money and you haven’t painted the room and you feel oh so not ready for the responsibility and the sleepless nights it is waaaay tooo fast.

But, I suppose, in the end….. 9 months is just right.
