For some reason, getting pregnant these days spurs many women to let down their hair, put on their finest floral crown and ethereal belly-baring frocks, and run to the woods to pose for sun-drenched pictures. We're not knocking maternity shoots (hey, I did one with my first; that's me in red on slide 5). But we couldn't help but wonder what a different place the office would be if these same expecting earth angels were among us, reviewing proposals and waiting in the cafeteria line. We challenged our talented creative director, Cara Reynoso, to put these moms-to-be in everyday workplace situations. Enjoy the hilarious results.

Hey, Genie, we know you're annoyed they canceled your prenatal yoga class, but you could've left a couple more feet between you and David.
That moment when you're caught navel gazing during the 2:00 ...
Marcia, top left, hoped if she stared straight ahead, she could focus on the group brainstorm instead of whatever Laura was trying to summon from her abdomen.
Just a little tutu much ...
Dina couldn't wait until the end of the presentation to show Brad just how many layers her new skirt has.
When in doubt, lean back.
Jaime had had enough of her chair and laptop and decided to send emails with her mind.
A very secret handshake.
Carley is smirking because she's going to make the new hire shake her unborn baby's hand too.
