Stealing from March - you know you're 8 months pregnant... - Page 3

post #41 of 140
You're getting up every three hours - at least - in the middle of the night to pee. About a tsp at a time! :

Cervix-jumping has apparently become an Olympic event in there...

"No, it is NOT clean enough!"

*Cough*
pee
*Sneeze*
pee
*Laugh*
pee

I give up! Are "Depends" comfortable? Bwah! What am I saying? What's "comfortable?"


Waving to the kids from the bottom of the stairs - "Goodnight!" - Daddy's tucking you in!

The memory of the pain of labor is nothing compared to the discomforts of this month... bring it on!

...you complain to yourself and DH that more places should have expectant mothers parking....then you wonder why you are out shopping to begin with when you can hardly walk...

When you get dressed up to go out and realize you can't reach over to do the strap on the high heels; after getting DH to do straps you then stand up and realize you can barely balance in them.

Every single person and said dress-up function comments on your belly!

Those who ask when you're due eyes pop out of their head when you tell them and you can see them doing the math in their heads.... "how many weeks does she still have to go?".

People ask you if there's more than one in there.

Your favorite past-time has become lying on your side with hand on your belly, playing "guess that body part".

Ha HA HA

I can so relate to the forest area...I forget what it looks like.
And Sneeze n pee should be a sponsored event or something...

You start answering the when are you due question with only 6 weeks left, to hopefully avoid the eye poppage...

The dog has somehow become sexually attracted to you...

You wish the dryer had legs so you didn't have to bend in there to get that stuff out!

You keep thinking of stuff to do and forget what it was when you get there...

I had one more but I forgot it...

HA! Oh these are all so great!

People stare at your belly, barely looking at your face

People hold the door open and wait for you to waddle there even though you are pretty far away from it still

These are great ladies...thanks for the laugh!!

- When you look in the mirror, shrug and realize putting make-up on before leaving the house is pointless...it feels like beating a dead horse. What's the point if the only thing you fit into anyway are purple sweat pant and ugly, flat, fat shoes???

: "it feels like beating a dead horse!" :

I hear that!

how about...

....You have an emotional breakdown when you can't find the vegetable broth you needed to complete the dinner you already started. and the thought of having to go to the store makes you want to curl up into a ball and cry.... Then Oh! Found it!

....Your husband isn't allowed near you.....

sooooo true
>>>how dare anyone interrupt your cleaning.!!?!?

...people start asking you if you think you've dropped

... people start telling you you look like you are going to pop

...you are starting to really get uncomfortable just all around (I'm having one of those days where I don't feel like wearing my clothes because they are all just so not comfortable!)

... You start feeling less like a young mother and more like an elderly woman when you stand up after sitting too long or get out of bed: your pelvis groans and you have to shuffle until the ache stops. (Is this one just me??)

... Your 5yo nephew says, "There must be a THOUSAND babies in there!!"

... Various acquaintances and strangers keep asking, "Are you sure you have your dates right?"

... You start carrying papaya enzyme in your purse in anticipation of heartburn.

... You're so thirsty, but there just isn't room to finish drinking your glass of water. Or: you work desperately on sipping a glass of water for 20 minutes.

... You are guaranteed to be ravenous when you wake up.

Yeah really! I heard that at least five times when we were out shopping last night.

Okay, so you know you're 9 months pregnant when....

You spend 4 hours scrubbing your kitchen cabinets!


While you have a cleaning person over to clean the house for you... I think I was making her feel bad, she kept saying, 'you're doing the hard work".

- when as you walk/waddle you are making equal progress side to side as you are making foward.


Side note: With the whole uterine rupture thing hanging over my head, I'm a bit sensitive when I'm asked if I'm going to pop or burst soon. I think in my head, "that's not quite what I'm going for here", but say "yeah, I'm going to be delivering soon." I never realized how pop and burst are so terrible related to pregnancy! Oh, well. at least the intentions are good.

...when your husband compares your nesting to a bi-polar mania just because you're up until midnight hanging curtains
