List Rules Movies must deal with pregnancy.

A list of the best pregnancy movies. These are the absolute best pregnancy films, but if you believe we've missed one then please feel free to add it to the list yourself. Pregnancy is a dramatic time in anyone's life. Before the time comes, first-time parents can try but still never know what it will be like to be pregnant. Movies capitalize on this by emphasizing all of the wacky and dramatic things that can happen during a pregnancy. Hey, it's entertaining, right? Since movies love drama, it's inevitable that lots of great films feature women who are preggers. Every genre has been included, but most of these films are comedies, with a few dramas. If you're expecting, going to be pregnant, or have been pregnant, then you'll probably find something to empathize with in the films on this list.
