Dear Future Daughter, This Is What It’s Like To Be Pregnant

Moments every mother can relate to.

If there’s anything that we mamas remember from our pregnancies, it’s the first moment we found out that we were expecting. Or when the ultrasound technician told us it was a girl. Or how we used to put pickles in our ice cream and eat grilled cheese sandwiches with hot sauce like it was the best thing ever. And when that first contraction kicked in leading up to the point that would change our life forever.

With so many of us suffering from “pregnancy brain,” it’s amazing that we remember important moments in our baby bump journeys. That’s why these illustrations from designer and illustrator Marie-Charlotte Yao (who is currently pregnant herself) will really pull at your heartstrings. She began journaling her pregnancy impressions with an iPad illustration app as a fun way to keep her memories and show them to her daughter one day.
