20 Quotes From Celebrity Moms About Pregnancy (Photos)

Alyssa Milano loves being pregnant.

Yesterday, I came across a post on Twitter from celeb mom-to-be, Alyssa Milano, that really struck a chord with me. She was talking about her pregnancy, and she said, “(I) Love being pregnant. It’s gone by too fast. He’s been a pleasure to carry. But I can’t wait to meet him.”

As I read her comment, I couldn’t help but think that she pretty much summed up a woman’s different feelings about pregnancy in a few sentences. On the one hand, being pregnant is an incredible experience, especially your very first pregnancy. I remember times when I didn’t want it to end, either because I was scared of what was going to come next, or because I knew I’d never again experience a child moving inside of me for the first time.

On the flip side of the coin, however, I couldn’t wait to get that baby out of me and finally see my son face to face.

Alyssa’s tweet inspired me to put together a slideshow of quotes from celebrity moms all about pregnancy and being pregnant.

Check out the photos below to hear what they had to say!
