    These New Pregnancy Emojis Are All Too Real For Moms

    These are long overdue.

    Besties Sarah Robinson, Hannah Hudson, and Natalie Ralston came up with the idea of pregnancy emojis to "fill a need for pregnant women and new moms."

    Ralston / Robinson / Hudson

    Robinson told BuzzFeed, "When you're pregnant or a new mom, texting is more than fun — it's actually a lifeline." To realize the project, the team hooked up with illustrator Lauren Burke, who created 250 original designs.

    This emoji perfectly sums up the first few months of pregnancy. #morningsickness

    And let people know you definitely aren't having a natural birth.

    Maybe also let them know you're having "lightning crotch."

    Yes, it's a thing.

    Show people how you sleep at night.

    If you can sleep this blissfully during pregnancy, it NEEDS TO BE SHARED.

    Be sure to send this to your S.O. when you’re feeling pregnant and frisky.

    Just don't accidentally text it to your co-worker.

    You can announce your water broke without saying a single word.

    This one is a pretty accurate depiction of labor (and pregnancy in general).

    And, of course, there are emojis for after pregnancy as well. 😉

    This one really sums up the “new mom” life.
