The Pregnancy Olympics

The following are events that I am suggesting for the Pregnancy Olympics.  We all know that athletes who compete in the Olympics are some of the strongest humans on the planets…but they aren’t as strong as some pregnant women that I have known.  In honor of pregnancy AND the completion of the 2016 Olympics in Rio I bring you…


The Pregnancy Olympics


The Toe Pick Up

I would have won a gold medal in this event when I was pregnant with the twins.  In this challenge Preggos have to use only their toes to clutch shit off of the floor, fling it into the air and catch it with a laundry basket.  Whoever has the most crap in the basket wins this event.  It kind of makes me want to get knocked up one more time just so I can enter this event and KILL IT…cause I totally would.


The Stair Climb

This is not for the faint of heart…and you can only enter if you have gained over fifty pounds and/or are eight months pregnant.  First one up the stairs wins.  You get disqualified if you go straight into labor…don’t do that.  You will totally ruin the game.


The Out of Bed Heave

This is all about gracefulness.  I would compare this one to the beauty of rhythmic gymnastics or synchronized swimming.  (Seriously- are those chicks even human??? No, I think not.)  Again you have to be in your third trimester to enter this event.  Whichever Preggo can most gracefully exit the bed is the winner.  Congrats graceful preggies.

  1. This is brilliant! Sadly I think I would have come last in every event, especially putting trousers on. I had to wear thick support tights for about six months of my pregnancy due to the horrendous varicose veins my son gave me (so generous), trying to pull them things up was a full body workout and I always had to have a lie down on the bed to recover. Can’t say I miss it

  2. Ha the out of bed heave was definitely my event, although a helping hand toward the end was always SO appreciated. Gold medals for preggos I say! Thanks for linking again with us at hope to see you again next week xx

  3. This is great! My husband would always yell at me and say, “Do you have to heave your body every time you turn from left to right?” YES, yes I do!

  4. I love this post! I wish I would have had these event when I was carrying my son! I would have sucked at it I’m sure though because I was so lazyyy and sick with him ahaha
