Pregnancy video

If you want to stay up on the cute trends in pregnancy announcements, gender reveals, and all things related to sharing news about a baby on the way, there's one new video that offers a primer of it all rolled up into one!

The video, posted by Cole Cuchna on YouTube and bound to go viral, shows a couple excitedly sharing that they're expecting right at the beginning. The three-minute stop-motion vid then shows mom-to-be progressing through pregnancy, noting the exciting developments on chalkboards hung on the wall behind them. (Trend number one!)

As the unborn baby develops and gets larger in mama's womb, the couple notes the various size comparisons with fruits and veggies on those chalkboards. (Trend number two!)

All the while, the couple scurries around to get ready for their growing family, even showing that the room they're filming in is destined to become they baby's nursery when they remove the hanging chalkboards to paint the wall in preparation.

Around mid-way, they learn they're having a girl, and share that gender-reveal news amid a pop of pink confetti raining from above. (Trend number three!)

In the end, the baby comes a week ahead of schedule (the big event happened earlier this month, ) and little miss Mabel appears in the frame in her mama's arms, yawning sweetly, while the family's pup also makes a fun cameo in dad's arms.

One of my favorite parts? Mom manages to wear the very same stretchy black dress throughout her pregnancy! It's a testament to the power of elastic—one that even worked for me during my twin pregnancy.

Last of all, in the same stretchy maternity dress we can see that mom's belly still appears rounded after the baby comes—a little window into reality, and a page from Kate Middleton's playbook!
