What I Thought:
I hadn't heard a whole lot about this movie. I'm not even sure I ever saw commercials for it. I know I watched the trailer once online, but other than that, I was just diving right in and hoping for the best. And I'd have to say it was pretty good.

I was thinking it would be more of a comedy, though there were funny parts, it was definitely more of a chick flick. I could see pregnant couples watching this movie together, but I think it'd be more for the woman. I really like these kinds of movies, where they have several different couples all in the same situation, but with very different lives. I think it really brings something to the table seeing all those different outlooks.

I thought the adoption ceremony was very touching. I almost wanted to cry, almost... I hardly ever cry at movies, so that says a lot. And the part where everybody gives birth, I thought it was very sweet and funny at times. I'd definitely recommend this movie to mothers, but I don't know that younger non-mother woman would really care about it. I suppose they might enjoy it, but they probably wouldn't understand most of it. It's really all about being pregnant, starting and having a family and preparing.

So if you're a mother:

If you're not a mother:

Why not?! At the very least
it's a really good, meaningful movie.

Hope you enjoy this one guys!
