New parents are often very excited to document this exciting journey from the very beginning, but that tends to lead to contrived efforts; that was not at all the case for this clever pregnancy time-lapse. Instead of posing typically against a white wall every month to see the progress of her bump, Alexa Hilal Calabro decided to get a little creative.

The pregnancy time-lapse involves a big red balloon, which she inhales over the nine months to make it look as though she is merely inflating her belly. When the balloon is completely flat, she turns around to reveal her little bundle of joy, who happens to be wearing a tiny red hat. The pregnancy time-lapse may have an amateur quality to it, but it is still captivating.
