Pregnancy, In Cartoons.

I can’t draw at all. I have never been skilled in that area.

I’m also not funny. At least, I’m not intentionally funny. Sometimes people find me hilarious, but it’s usually on accident. When I try to be funny, you hear crickets.

So guess what I decided would be a good idea? I drew a comic strip of my pregnancy.

Yeah.

I know it makes no sense. But I decided it would be a fun (for me) way to remember some of the funny (for me) things that I’ve experienced. And one day, I can show them to Josey. I’m sure she’ll love her dad even more after she reads them.

First, though, I decided to scan them and share them with you. If you can read my handwriting and discern what my drawings are, I’ll be truly impressed.

Some of the drawings are so bad, I had to write explanations next to them so you can tell what you’re looking at. In fact, some of the funniest parts, to me, are the extra bad drawings.

So here’s the format: First and Second trimester were a page each, and I chopped them up on the computer.

Third trimester gets a page per week. Probably because I’m still in that trimester, and so, obviously, it’s the freshest in my memory. I’ll probably add a new cartoon to the blog each week to show that week’s craziness. I plan to type a few explanations for the various comics as well.

You might have to click the images to enlarge them in order to read them.

Without further ado, here we go.

First trimester. The nausea- even from foods you used to love. The hormones. The exhaustion. Your husband starts to wonder where his wife went.

Second Trimester. Once you start feeling better and people can tell you’re pregnant, and not just fat, you are really happy.

Third Trimester.

Week 27. Third trimester starts to remind me of the first.

Week 28. So… going to the doctor’s office and getting weighed on a regular basis is not fun.

Week 29. If you’re wondering if this is about you, it probably is. Not that I mind that you look amazing. But, sheesh, it does nothing for my self-esteem.

Week 30. I do love that the bigger the belly, the nicer strangers are to you (most of the time).

Week 31. You already know this story actually happened.

Week 32. This actually happened the other night. Except I didn’t literally rip Tom’s head off. I hate when I’m in the middle of working on something and my computer decides to screw me over. Grrr.

Then, Tom tried to cheer me up, and I wasn’t having it. I remember when I used to have a sense of humor. Now it’s hit or miss.

And that pretty much catches us up to speed on where we are in this pregnancy.

More next week!

  1. lol this was so awesome, I can’t wait for more. I never expected to get comic strips from you, Megan, but I’m loving it! Especially since one contains an image of you quite literally ripping Tom’s head off, blood and all.

    I also like to see the frame where Tom is putting his hands on his head as him putting on headphones to listen to some Metallica to get away from it all.

    1. So glad you enjoy it! Tom said the cartoon looked like he was holding headphones over his ears too. I love that because it’s probably true that he was doing that. hahahaha! So glad you enjoyed it! I know it’s really random.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! Or were pained by it…? 😉 I probably shouldn’t just draw out the “crazy” stories because I look like I am insane, but they’re the funniest ones.

    1. I think any guy who has a wife and kids can relate to Tom in this comic strip. I told him he is actually the hero of the story. lol I laugh, but I mean it.

  2. OMG! So I am at my dad’s office on their demo screen (aka a HUGE flat screen TV as the monitor) and I am dying laughing. My dad’s co-worker was peeking in to see the screen as well. SOOOO FUNNY! LOVE THE DRAWINGS AND PLAY BY PLAY…makes me NOT want to go through that ANYTIME soon though!!! You and Tom will make BEAUTIFUL children and be AMAZING parents!!!! I cannot wait!!! Love you

    1. Oh boy! Your dad’s co-worker is going to wonder what kind of people you are friends with! haha Well, I am glad to make you smile today! =) Thanks for telling me. You are so sweet- I can’t wait to have Josey here! xoxo
