Attention, Texters! New Emojis Perfect for Pregnancy Are in the Works

Some of the new emojis being considered are perfect for expectant moms.

Get your thumbs ready, mamas! New emojis are in the works, and more than a few might come in handy for pregnant women. Consider these candidates being reviewed by The Unicode Technical Committee (UTC), which could perfectly communicate your preggers feelings:

pregnant woman emoji

'Nuf said with this pregnant woman emoji.

nauseated face emoji

Convey the misery that is morning sickness with this nauseated face.

Stuffed flatbread emoji

Order your husband to bring you the sandwich you're mad-craving with this stuffed flatbread emoji.

Drooling face emoji

Add this drooling face to the flatbread emoji to really drive home your immediate need for a sandwich.

Face palm emoji

Blame any mistakes on pregnancy brain by using this face palm emoji.

Juggling hands emoji

For all those moms of more than one kiddo out there, a juggling emoji is always accurate.

According to Market Watch, the most popular emojis being used are those featuring facial expressions. (Insert surprised face here.) From the emojis released in October 2015, those most used in texts include "nerd face," "thinking face," "upside-down face," and "slightly frowning face." (Nerd face? Really?) But of course, the most commonly used emojis overall are the "joy" face, and the "kissy" version, as well as the "rolling eyes face."

Not commonly used are emojis that don't express emotion, such as the taco and champagne bottle. What, you don't eat tacos and drink champagne every night like I do?

I predict the pregnant woman emoji will be big. At least among moms. Because there's no stronger emotion than pregnancy! Or at least the ones that come along with it.

What emoji do you use the most in your texts?
