16. Popcorn (Trampoline)

This game only applies to couples and ones with access to a trampoline. One very silly way of “testing” the love of the nonpregnant partner during a bridal shower is to play popcorn on a trampoline. To play, the husband must join 5 others on the trampoline. The husband will then go into a fetal position, and curl up as tightly as he can. The remaining 5 party members will start bouncing around, attempting to make the nonpregnant partner release their grip. If they can stay curled up for a minute straight, they win. If they win, the saying is that the baby and relationship will be healthy and last.
