The hilarious list of pregnancy questions that you need to read now

Someone just won the internet

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Ah, Reddit! A place where we can hide on a hungover Sunday afternoon, sifting through stories from waiters about the worst first dates they’ve ever witnessed, or buried 1,600 comments deep in a thread detailing the things women will ‘never understand’ about guys.

The latest Reddit post to go viral, however, is not an insight into the inner workings of a man’s mind, or a TMI thread about the most unexpected things people’s partners have done during sex. It’s simply a photo of a Pregnancy Q&A– and a hilarious one at that.

It’s an understatement to say that having a baby is chartering into unknown territory – should you sign up for pregnancy Pilates? What do you need to know about having sex when you’re pregnant? And will you actually lose your hair after childbirth?

A pregnant user decided to upload a photograph of a sign that she saw on the wall while waiting to see her obstetrician. It includes many of the common questions that expectant mothers or couples ask, such as ‘when is the best time to get an epidural?’ and ‘Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?’

However, the answers aren’t quite like the ones you may have heard if you yourself posed these to your doctor during pregnancy.

For example, the best time for an epidural? ‘Right after you find out you’re pregnant.’

The hilarious list has resonated with Reddit users and is now doing the rounds online, because truth. Take a look at the full Pregnancy Q&A here and see if you agree with these (slightly rogue) answers…

To whoever wrote this – you win.
