10 Movies To Watch When You are Expecting


movies to watch when you are expecting

Last week I met my friend after a long time in FB. I remember I was pregnant the time he got married , so couldn’t attend his marriage function.

His wife is expecting now and he asked for a help from me. He is abroad and his wife is at her native. So he wants to send some gifts to her at this stage and he doesn’t know what to buy for his preggu wifey 🙂

My first choice was big stuffed teddy bears ; he has already gifted it 🙁

How about gifting books , that too pregnancy related , he said a big NO ; as she is not an avid reader .

Huh hmmm… So I thought for a long time making him wait for even loooongerr time and arrived at this , why can’t he send a collection of must watch movie DVDs during pregnancy ??

BINGO ! He liked the idea , but asked me ‘ How can I know which movie to watch during pregnancy ? ‘. Well , yeah he was right . How can he know which movie DVDs to go for ? I took a paper and pen and wrote down every movie that I liked during my preggu phase, filtered, revised and send the top 10 must watch movies to him.

Got the feedback from him yesterday that his wifey enjoys watching those DVDs again and again!! Eyyyy….happy dance :):)

So my point is , why can’t I share that list with you mom to be/s here.

8. Kya kehna? (Hindi)

Ahhh this is the movie which made my eyes flooded with tears!! I had watched it long back, when it was released , then it was a bakwaas Senti movie for me, but I don’t know what magic it created when I saw it again during my pregnancy, the story moved me so much especially the scenes where the pregnant Preity Zinta says NO to abortion and plans to go ahead with her baby alone!! A lesson and boost for many moms , whose family life is uneasy.

    I would suggest what to expect when you are expecting(English). It is a replication of the book what to expect when you are expecting and I loved watching it. More informative though as too much of information at this stage is also not advisable…
