Answer: A pregnant woman goes to the fridge riddle

She opened the fridge door first!

Some have answered that she opens her room door first, but it doesn’t explicitly say that she opened her room door, just that she goes out of her room. 

By listing the food items individually, it invites you to think which food you’d naturally eat first. However, she’d have to open the fridge to get to some of the items and it’s addressed that she goes there first. 

On the other hand, some have argued that she opens her eyes first, which is definitely an interesting take as she’d likely blink on her journey from the room to the fridge.
