You know you're 9 months pregnant when....

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
-your husband (with the very sensitive sense of smell) tells you you smell funny, and you hope this is a sign of a hormone shift and impending labor.

-you spend all day on the toilet but feel vindicated when you can see definition in your ankles for the first time in 3 weeks. (I must have lost like 4 pounds of water weight today. And my ankles are SO PRETTY!)

-you need help rolling over in bed because the weight of the baby pulls way too much on your round ligaments and it HURTS.

Ok unpopped mamas, you have to be able to add to this list!

LMAO ok seriously, I am going to the bathroom right now to check.

You know you are 9 months pg when you scare little children with your screaming "ouch" in the grocery store.

When standing up from the couch is a major production which takes multiple starts and stops, a huge amount of effort and at least a little help. And by the time you finally manage to get up you can't remember what you wanted.

When every time you make plans or an appointment for more than a day ahead you add the condition, "That is, we'll be there IF baby isn't born yet/I'm not in labor..."

Hahaha yeah this one is me all day long. My mother who is a senior citizen told me to 'just stay sitting down, you look too pitiful trying to get up'

Or that magically pushing hard enough will pop your water.

When family members can have whole conversations about whether or not you've dropped.

When you consider it a good night's sleep if you've only been up to go to the bathroom 4 times, plus woke up with screaming hip pain another 3 or 4 times.

Another to add: When dropping something on the floor and knowing you have to somehow manuever to pick it up is enough to make you nearly cry.

When the janitor at school is really nice and kindly notices (not being snarky, but genuinely was sympathetic) the increased amount of pencils, red pens, post-it notes, paper clips, etc. that litter the floor of the teaching area just where YOU stand/sit/teach, because they *oops* drop during the course of the day and you just leave them there I told him finders keepers from now on!!

When you've had tons of sex lately but not because you are in the mood, only to get labor going!
post #17 of 32
When your girly parts FEEL like you've been having tons of sex, without the sex part

Great stuff! Glad to know I'm not the only one thinking ALL of these things!

So much to do in June, "IF I haven't had the baby yet!" This is the biggest caveat!

What's in that? I have a DQ near my house....


When you suddenly don't care about eating healthy because soon enough you are going to be losing weight and not gaining.
