Go mama! Go mama! Wait, how did you not send yourself into labor dancing like this?

Stop what you're doing right now, and watch a new YouTube video called "Pregnant Lady Dancing at 9000 ft." It features an expectant mama, named Elizabeth Marberry, shaking her very big bump up in Beaver Creek, Colorado, in ways you may not have thought possible.

In the caption, the heavily pregnant dancer writes, "I made this video to prove to myself that I could still dance, move and have fun despite being VERY pregnant and often times uncomfortable in my own skin. I hope it makes you smile and laugh (because watching a pregnant lady attempt to dance is pretty hysterical). I also hope it empowers other pregnant women to keep pursuing whatever makes them happy."

I guess I'm not seeing what's so hysterical, because I'm not laughing over here. Instead, my jaw is literally on the floor. Elizabeth, you are amazing! I mean, let's be honest; I can't even do those moves not pregnant.

In fact, this soon-to-be mom shakes her thing all over Beaver Creek, all the while with a big grin on her face.

Is it bad that I'm tired just watching her? Or that I'm wondering if the finale of this video is her going into labor?

Marberry may have felt uncomfortable in her own skin, but in this video it looks like she completely forgets she's sporting a giant bump. It's aspirational. It's inspirational! And not just for pregnant women, but for all women. You go, mama!
