If laughter is the best medicine, then all the pregnant women out there should be feeling the side effects of pregnancy a little less after watching this parody of LMFAO's "I'm Sexy and I Know It." There have been a lot of spoofs of this song, but this YouTube video "I'm Pregnant and I Know It" offers a funny glimpse at the un-sexy side of pregnancy (is there a sexy side?).   

The video shows Angela Profitt-- clearly closing in on her due date-- lip synching, dancing, and acting out the creative lyrics that her husband Tommee is singing. The lyrics include gems like, "This is how I roll, belly band pants with the fold" and "Do the waddle, girl!" And the chorus sings "I've got a baby on the way, and I ain't afraid to show it, I'm pregnant and I know it." and "Just look at my belly. Just look at my belly. Just look at my belly. I pig out!"

The Huffington Post reports that the Michigan couple spent two days filming the video which includes scenes of her chowing down on snacks and surrounded by food on the couch, pushing a grocery cart through the store, and dancing around the nursery with stuffed animals.

Ironically, perhaps the funniest line of the entire video is the last clip in which she the pregnant woman says that she doesn't want to finish it because she doesn't want anyone to ever see it. Her husband told their local news channel that he had to coax Angela into making the video because she's shy. But when you post a video like that on line, it's sure to go viral and it has with more than 520,000 page views as of this morning since it was posted on YouTube on March 19.
