The dramatic tension, the tears, the insatiable craving for pizza ... "30 Rock" just gets it. And they're here for you.

And that shit will knock you off of your feet.

2. One fine day, you're going about your normal business, when all of a sudden-

3. "How many days has it been since............?"

4. This is immediately followed by an intense flashback to your birth control failing.

5. Then the realization that you actually have been acting kinda weird this month...

Like, you've basically been acting like a souped-up Liz Lemon all month.

6. So you do the dumbest thing possible and check out your symptoms on WebMD.

That takes your mind off of it for a while .... since you might actually have LUPUS.

7. But it's still early in the P-Scare, so instead of actually being nervous, you're just taking this opportunity to tell all of your friends that you're late.

Really, you're just humble-bragging about actually having sex.

8. (But, as a warning: you don't always get the reaction that you'd hoped for.)

In which case, you just gotta remind them:

9. Your girlfriends always give you their support in the best way that they know how:

10. And by now, drinking the problem away seems like a feasible option, so you're all:

11. (But, as another warning: when you drink in this fragile emotional state, it usually turns out like this)

12. And don't even try dragging your guy friends into this.

13. At this point, your thinking might start getting kind of...weird...

Like, you might get irrationally jealous of your friends that are on their periods...

Or you might embrace your "pregnant" status and use it as an excuse to eat ALL THE FOOD...

14. One totally normal, expected reaction is to begin plotting against the "big dumb idiot guy who put you in this situation!"

15. You might even feel a kind of ... maternal instinct kick in...

Okay, crazy.

Okay, crazy.

16. No matter what, you'll probably start considering your options. All of which cost money .... which brings your mind to, "How the hell am I gonna get this money?"

17. By now, you're so overwhelmed that every day is a struggle.

(Oh, yeah, and you obviously go in full costume.)

Because at the drugstore, you will, inexplicably, run into someone you know. And then you'll have to pretend that there totally isn't a pregnancy test in your basket...

And after that unnerving encounter, you'll probably chicken out, call an audible, leave your whole basket in aisle 4 and get the hell out of there.

19. Finally, your little friend comes, and you've never been happier to see her.

It was all just stress-induced! (or, in Liz's case, the fault of a sketchy, Mexican version of Cheetos...)

20. The trauma of the P-Scare will probably cause you to swear off sex forever.

But let's be honest ... this resolution will last about as long as "Selfie's" run on primetime.

21. So get back out there, restock your condom stash, and for God's sake, Lemon, lay off the Sabor de Soledads!
