“Pregnant and I Know It”
This video parody of LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It” will have you chuckling and singing along before the first chorus is over. The slightly irreverent humor makes light of many of the most common pregnancy complaints, such as morning sickness, heartburn, and looking like you swallowed a basketball. Check out the star mama-to-be’s dance moves—not bad for being “ready to pop!”
How do you capture nine months in a minute and a half? This video takes a creative approach by piecing together a time-lapse pregnancy focused on an expectant mom walking through a variety of (authentic) nature-inspired backgrounds. The consistency of the woman’s walking pace and outfits make for a seamless transition – watch her belly grow over three seasons and, according to the filmmaker’s description, seven states.

Sonograms and baby showers are showcased as the pregnancy progresses. The last seconds of the journey feature the “money shot:” a healthy newborn.
