1. Unexpected

A complex, award-winning film about adjusting to an unplanned pregnancy, modern motherhood and the identity of women in the world.

Could we love this movie any more?

2. What to Expect When You’re Expecting

Pregnancy is magical. And stressful. And hilarious. This over-the-top flick is not a completely realistic portrayal of birth, but it’s definitely funny and you’ll truly feel their pain.

3. Father of the Bride Part II

Who’s pregnant? Oh, everyone. This classic is one to rewatch whether you’re feeling nostalgic for the ’90s or just need to enjoy some innocent lols at Steve Martin’s expense.

4. Baby Mama

An instant favorite from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, two of the funniest mamas in Hollywood, about the trials of trying to get pregnant. And let’s just say making a baby will look a little easier when you don’t have Angie (Amy) as your off-the-wall surrogate.

5. Knocked Up

So your pregnancy story doesn’t always start the way that you dreamed it would, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a storybook ending.

At least if you’re starring in Knocked Up.

6. The Back-up Plan

You know that old Hollywood tale: Woman wants to have baby. Woman doesn’t have man. Woman tries artificial insemination. Woman immediately falls in love with handsome stranger. What happens next? Watch and find out.
