Being pregnant is an experience that nothing can prepare you for. No matter how many baby books you read, Mom friends you talk to or how many watermelons you duct tape to your abdomen, the actual act of growing a human inside your body is both completely horrifying and absolutely incredible at the same time. As a currently five-months pregnant woman myself, I know this all too well.
Since she first announced her pregnancy in October of 2018, Amy Schumer has been more than open about what a tough road her first pregnancy has been. And, in her typically candid fashion, she's been sharing some of the more hilariously bizarre moments with her adoring fans. One of those moments happened when her sister-in-law brought her the type of cake that nightmares are made of. If you're at all squeamish or if the idea of labor makes you feel more nauseated than inspired, proceed with caution.
Amy Schumer doesn't seem like someone who would be easily grossed out.
Or how about that time she slipped in a fart joke with a romantic anniversary post?
So when she first announced her pregnancy, we knew we were in for a wild ride.Pregnancy TMI is probably the grossest of all TMIs, am I right? Schumer first dropped the news in October of 2018 on Twitter while announcing some "news."
This will be her and husband Chris Fischer's first child.
Her wedding guest list was basically a who's who of Hollywood A-listers.Chelsea Handler, Larry David, Jennifer Aniston, Judd Apatow, David Spade, Jake Gyllenhaal and of course Schumer's BFF Jennifer Lawrence were in attendance, to name a few. I couldn't even get the relatives who live one-state over to show up to my wedding.
Since announcing her pregnancy, Schumer has been completely candid about the less-than-pleasant parts.
Like this post, for example, which illustrated the exhaustion that comes with pregnancy.
Or the less-than-flattering undergarments that we're forced to wear.
And how hard it can be to find the correct bra while expecting.
Schumer's pregnancy, however, has been anything but routine.
So basically, hyperemesis is morning sickness's sadistic first cousin.
The condition has even had an impact on her performance schedule.
She posted this emotional video to Instagram on November 5th of last year.
Amy Schumer is clearly going to be an amazing Mom.
She's makes an effort to educate herself on her changing body.
She's also not afraid to be goofy.
So, because of Amy's overall awesomeness, a beloved family member decided to do something special to celebrate this exciting time in her life.
If your face looks exactly like Amy's does in this GIF, you're not alone.
Now, let's take a closer look at these pics.This cake was hand-made by Amy's sister-in-law, which, if you think about it, is really kind of sweet. After all, you can tell that a lot of work went into making this thing.
Here's the master chef posing with her creation.You can tell by the look on her face how proud she is of it, and I can't say I really blame her. I don't know the first thing about baking a regular cake, let alone one with a literally baby head cresting the top of it.
Amy looks less than thrilled with the gift.She's probably thinking, "I've spent the last few months trying NOT to picture this exact moment, and you decided to sculpt it in graphic detail out of something edible?!"
This angle really shows off the more unsettling aspects of this, shall we say, unique dessert.Did this particular part of the human anatomy really need to be included, Amy's sister-in-law? Did it?
After doing a bit more research, I discovered that cakes like this one are actually surprisingly common.
I will NEVER understand baby shower cakes! This is weird and gross! WEIRD AND GROSS!!! http://t.co/mf7YVjesc2— 🐛one worm 👁‿👁 🐛 (@🐛one worm 👁‿👁 🐛)1443319530.0

Baby Shower Cakes are hands down the worst thing to happen to this planet. https://t.co/JZW59INz0K— notgavin (@notgavin)1528989604.0
The realistic nature of this one is what makes it so unsettling.
