we as women complain about pregnancy but....

do you ever think we're actually pretty lucky compared to other mammals? we're pregnant for about 266 days. horses are pregnant for 336 days, donkeys are pregnant for 374 days, camels are pregnant for 400 days, giraffes are pregnant for 425, gray rhinos 480, black rhinos 540, and elephants are pregnant for 624 days. compared to all of these other mammals we are actually really lucky. can you imagine being pregnant for over 2 years!? not to mention their babies are bigger. maybe we should count our blessings. what do you think?

  • I think being an elephant and being a human are two totally different things and you have too much time on your hands.

  • yeah just a fun harmless question. i was thinking that we got the short end of the stick because cats and dogs are pregnant for mere weeks, then i did the research and saw that we're actually VERY LUCKY so i decided to see what other fellow moms/mammals think

  • Maybe those that are complaining about the question are not mammals at all, aren't mammals warm blooded?

  • The bigger the mammal the longer gestation. I think mice have it the easiest.

  • I loved being pregnant - it's when they turn into lazy 16 YO's who keep forgetting to take out the garbage and constantly pester me for money that I dread! :-)
