Hilarious cartoons show the ups and downs of pregnancy and being a new mum

Swollen feet, what pregnancy yoga REALLY looks like and forgetting to pull your top up after a feed (oops)...

Illustrator and mum of two Line Severinsen began drawing these brilliant cartoons, Kos & Kaos, back in 2012 when she was pregnant with her first child.

She captured those moments of pregnancy we all recognise – feeling the size of a cow when lying in bed next to your partner, the overwhelming emotions you feel, and how damn hard it is to shave when you’re sporting a humungus belly.

Now she’s a mum of two she’s carried on drawing the cartoons and has again captured those classic mum moments we all go through at some point or another.

It could be pushing a pram in the pouring rain, the awkward moment the nurse is still trying to get you to breastfeed when you’re just not feeling it, and the jolly antics of a mum and baby cinema screening. Enjoy!

Ah, the swollen feet

And just HOW do I get a clean shave exactly?

This class seemed like a good idea at the time
