Cartoonist Line Severinsen from Norway has been creating cartoons since she was a child, but when she became pregnant with her first child her attention turned to the pregnancy experience.

“When I found out that I was pregnant the first time, I spent a lot of time reading up on what I could expect over the next few months, and most of it was just sunshine and positive stories,” Severinsen told The Huffington Post. “However as the weeks passed, I experienced some of the more negative side effects of being pregnant, and I never saw anyone write about much about that,” she added. “I grabbed my pencils to tell my story about some of the weird and comical stuff that pregnant women actually go through and shared it with my friends on my blog.”

Her cartoons capture what life is really like as you go through all the changes and stages of pregnancy, and are so popular she is turning them into a book. I’m So Pregnant: An illustrated look at the ups and downs (and everything in between) of pregnancy is due to be released in March 2017, but we thought we would share a selection of some of her cartoons as seen on her popular Instagram account – kosogkaos.
