Snooki Rides a Scooter While Pregnant & You Should Too

LOL 19

Snooki scooterWhen I first saw this picture of Snooki riding on a scooter, my first reaction was something like, "Oh my God -- what the heck is Snooki doing on a scooter? Has pregnancy really made her that lazy? Is filming scenes for Jersey Shore really that tiring?"

But then I thought about it a little more and changed my tune -- and now I think she's absolutely genius for literally putting her feet up and cruising around Seaside Heights like an 80-year-old woman. Honestly, I'm a little bit bummed that I didn't think about getting my scoot on when I was pregnant with my son. It sure would've made navigating the grocery store aisles a lot easier. (Carts are hard to push with a big ole' belly!)

As crazy as it sounds, pregnant women should really take a lesson from Snooki and think about switching from walking to scooting when they find out they've got a bun in the oven. Heck -- a scooter can even be pretty useful as a new mom too.

And I've come up with a few good reasons why.

1. Swollen Ankles -- Um, hello? Are cankles not the most uncomfortable thing ever?! It can be hard to walk up and down the stairs towards the end of a pregnancy let alone navigate the neighborhood when you can't tell where your legs end and your feet begin. Why walk and risk cankles when you can scoot instead?

2. The Fatigue Factor -- I'm not sure which was more exhausting -- being pregnant or taking care of a baby all day. At least if I'd had a scooter during those times in my life, I would've felt a bit less wiped out at night.

3. Avoiding Falls -- The last thing any pregnant gal needs is to take a tumble and risk something happening to the baby. And as long as you're a careful driver, scooters are virtually fall-proof.

4. Footwear Is Optional -- I know being barefoot and pregnant is kind of cliche, but the truth is, it really does feel good to go shoe-free during those nine months. If you're feet aren't touching the ground, there's really no need for uncomfortable shoes.

5. Need for Speed -- It can be hard to move at a good pace while pregnant, but it's also tough to chase after babies once they start walking -- and I'm thinking the scooter could really give moms the upper hand.

6. No Heavy Lifting -- You know how you aren't supposed to lift anything remotely heavy while pregnant? That basket on the front of Snooki's scooter sure comes in handy for shopping trips.

7. Extra Sympathy -- Let's be honest, all pregnant women and brand new moms need as much sympathy as they can get. And if people see you riding around on a scooter, they might feel a bit more compassionate and offer a helping hand.

Do you think a scooter would make your pregnancy easier?

Whatever she wants to do.


Pregnancy didn't make me feel horrible or disabled...so I was more than capable of walking. I think exercise during pregnancy is far more beneficial than hazardous.

I lol'ed at this. My first time pregnant self would have scoffed at this article, but now that I'm almost 7m in with my second pregnancy, this is something I'd give considerable thought to, not sure if Id actually have the guts to go through with it though. I havent developed cankles yet, but my husband (bless his cute heart) treats me like glass, and the fatigue factor has been there from the start! :-p

That's disgusting. Pregnancy is not a disease. Please, I worked until the day I went into labor. Literally, I worked 8-6 then went home and went into labor at 10. I have no sympathy for women who do that.

Totally agree with elle7777. I didn't get cankles, or gain much weight. Then again I walked and did plenty of excersise, which I'd prefer to sitting on my ass and getting fat. It's funny how much people think of pregnancy as a disability.

my hips would hurt so bad after my bartending shift when i was pregnant with #1 that i would use one at the grocery store because i really couldn't walk any more. however, i doubt ol' snooki has ever had to work that hard in her life. but whatevs...

Oh! Wonderful! You worked till the day you went into labor, you want a trophy for that? I suffered from severe pubic symphysis dysfunctio so it was almost impossible for me to walk some days. One lady i know was i a wheelchair for the last two months in her pregnancy. My PSDD wasnt that bad but after labor my pelvis split apart. Then i was in a wheelchaif for two months. TALK ABOUT BEING BAD ASS HUH?? i say let snooky do what ever she wants. If she wants to feel comfy the so be it!

well aren't you just special, colette. it's snooki. it's goofy and funny. climb off the high horse.

I cant say I relate, I never got the puffy face or swollen feet and ankles. Walking around was never a burden, and after sitting all day at my desk job I enjoyed walking around. In fact, while I was in labor, I walked through wal mart to buy a camcorder (although i would never do that again. ever.)

There are days I'd like a scooter even though I'm not currently pregnant!  Good for her for doing what she wants to to take care of herself.

I love Snooki and whatever she wants to do, she's going to do it. 


The only thing I worry about is that HELLO!  She's driving a scooter!  Half of Team Meatball is driving a scooter...in public...with people around.  Watch out for your toes!  :P


I think she's great.
