You know you're in your third trimester when...

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
I like those "You know you're 8 mos pregnant when.." threads in previous DDCs so I thought I'd start one here. I used third trimester to cover the mamas who aren't quite 8 mos or are closer to 9 mos.

So, you know you're in your third trimester when:

- You need help getting out of bed in the mornings

- Romance is when your DH/DP says to you, "You can wear my sweat pants."

This is one I read somewhere MONTHS ago but it is one I use all the time

~You need a drumroll to roll over in bed

You walk like you have a balloon between your legs.

Your boobs are so ginormous they need their own zip code!

You need both hands free when you walk around - one to hold your pants up and the other to hold your shirt down - clothes just weren't designed to fit on a balloon!

When you basically just stop wearing underwear because it has gotten too uncomfortable and you don't feel like spending money on maternity panties. I can go commando for a little longer!

Walking uphill requires baby steps.

You step on people's feet if they stand too close (since you can't see them).

DH/DP refers to you as a planet.

Getting in/out of the car is a process. A rather involved one.

Ice becomes an entire foodgroup.

You use the bathroom, wash your hands, and realize you have to go again!

You know you're in the 3rd trimester when...

- You can't remember what a good breath feels like
- When non pregnant or less pregnant people complain about their aches and pains and needs to pee you give them the stink eye
- You know exactly how many days, weeks, and minutes left until your EDD

You get up at least 5 times a night to use the bathroom.

...or because you can risk tripping over and falling down whilst trying to put them on! (happened to me today )

When rolling over in bed, getting out of bed, getting up off the couch, putting on pants, etc. etc. is accompanied by the following soundtrack: "ow.. ow.. oof.. ow.. oof.. oof.. ow.."

You get into bed, realize you forgot to do something and can't decide whether it's worth it to have to roll over and get up again.

OMG this thread is hilarious! You ladies kill me!

You know you're in your 3rd trimester when:
*a yoga ball becomes your favorite chair
*your 4 year old son becomes your personal servant
*the microwave replaces your oven because you can't stand up long enough to cook a meal

I am SO there! I am always asking hubby if he can get me socks, a drink, whatever. LOL! Because I forgot before bed

ooh, I have some more!

thinking of what you should eat for meals or snacks now seems like a huge chore
you consider things like washing your dish after you use it exercise
post #17 of 55
You use the bathroom, go up the stairs and turn right around to go again. (after going twice in 1/2 hour)

You get Moto Moto's song (from Madagascar 2) stuck in your head whenever you're up walking around.

You're worried about a car crash because your seat belt has been displaced by your tummy and now hits you right across the neck!

- you wake up to roll over in bed.
- you look at a food and wonder if it'll give you heartburn/acid reflux before deciding whether or not to eat it.
- your dh wants to "be intimate" and you feel huge and uncomfortable, but decide "why not, it'll probably help ripen my cervix and maybe get things moving" and that is your sole motivation!
- You grocery shop with a menu plan and list, but half the stuff in your cart are impulse buys anyways! And you never get everything on your list because you're too tired to finish going through the store.
- You wake up more at night than your 1 yo does.

You know you should be preparing good meals for your own health and well-being, but spend your day eating (too much of!) whatever you can eat immediately by opening a box/bag. Preparation and cooking are just too much work!
