7 Hilarious Ways Being Drunk is Just Like Being Pregnant


It is funny how you can relate to situations in life through your own experiences. Even if you have not been through an exactly similar situation, you can usually pull things from your life that may be surprisingly close to a totally unrelated situation.

Take pregnancy for example. Even if you’ve not been pregnant you might be able to relate a bit to a stomach that just won’t settle or being so tired you’re not sure how you are going to get through the day. Sure, you can’t really compare the two — but you can see a glimpse into what it might be like.

Truth is if you have ever been drunk, you might be able to relate to pregnancy more then you realize. Sure, the situations are very different (and you can’t get drunk while pregnant) but there are surprisingly similar situations you will find yourself in.
