And for LGBT+ people, overcoming the challenges of starting a family make the experience even more special.

These lesbian and bi mums shared photos of their bumps, scans, new families and pregnancy announcements because they couldn’t contain themselves.

“We had our prenatal intake appointment with my midwife today! Discussed a plan of attack for monitoring and addressing the baby not wanting me to do anything but lay around and feeling like death. Blood work and all that fun stuff. And we got to listen to its itty bitty heartbeat, which made its mamas’ hearts happy. #12weeks #homebirth”

“Last week we had our first pregnancy scare. The hospital was metallic and clinical. The doctor was unhelpful and disempowering. After a rough week with some spotting and an ultrasound without a heartbeat, we had a good blood test that showed R’s hormones are “rising nicely”. We feel fortunate for good community and right now we’re hopeful. It’s crazy that after just 6 weeks we’re already attached to our little nugget.”

21. “Hanging out with her future babysitter”
