You know you're 9 months pregnant when.... - Page 2

post #21 of 32
when you're SURE that the innocent question, "so, how are you doing/feeling?" is actually covert code for "why haven't you had that baby yet?!?" and you just want to scream at the poor asker that you'll let them know if and when you ever have the baby!

You start wondering things like "Who's bright idea was it to make toilet stall doors only open in?!?"

when you make multiple late night trips to the kitchen for a snack, and end up in tears cause nothing that you ate "hit the spot"...

When a simple task takes 2 hours to accomplish:

Realize the dog needs water, take his bowl into the kitchen and put on the counter. See the new car seat that needs to be put away in baby's closet upstairs, go put it away. See all the trash in baby's room from new packaging from your Ikea trip today, clean up. DH calls you downstairs into the kitchen to look at something he found while cleaning the garage. See dog bowl on counter and move it next to the sink. Remember that you were cleaning baby's room and go upstairs to finish. Find knobs that you want to put on the dresser and take them to dh to ask how to do that. While carrying the drill upstairs, drop one of the knobs. Continue up the stairs to put the drill in the bedroom, and then go retrieve the knob. It fell into the kitchen, and it's 9pm and you are hungry. Place knob on counter and look in pantry. Pull out a box of annie's mac and cheese because it sounds delicious. You realize there are no clean pots so you are going to need to wash one. Walk to the sink and see dog bowl. Fill it up and finally put it back on the ground for your thirsty pet.

That horrible potato-sack dress your SIL gave you...it is now the only maternity outfit that still fits!

One of things on your before-baby list is to hang a clothesline. You scrape your belly on a tree in the process.

You just described my days when not pregnant!

I made an eye appt. for myself for next week and added the caveat, "That is, I'll be here IF the baby isn't born yet..."

I stink. I've stunk since about a month ago. It's getting old. I seem to be the only one who notices it, but it's getting to me. I still have two weeks to go...

-you need help rolling over in bed because the weight of the baby pulls way too much on your round ligaments and it HURTS.
*sigh*
I barely had this at all in my first two pregnancies. This is number five. It's been hard and painful rolling over in bed for well over a month. I think my ligaments are just losing elasticity.

Besides the rolling over in bed thing because my ligaments are all loose and painful, last night my wrist kept popping out of place! Why do the ligaments in my wrist have to get loose in order to birth a child!

And I second the bathroom door thing - why do they all open inwards??

When you cry for 30 minutes straight because the local sandwich shop didn't cook the roast beef WEEL DONE like your hubby asked, and when he finally brings it home to you the roll is all soaked in pinky red that means bloody meat and FOR G*D SAKES YOU CAN'T EAT THAT WHEN YOUR PREGNANT BECAUSE YOU WILL THROW UP AND IT'S "JUUUUSSSSSTTTTT.....SOOOOOOOO......GRRRROOOOOOOOO OOOSSSSSS.....*sob, choke, sob*" (<----those were my exact words for, like, 10 minutes) LOL!!!!!

You have to hoist your belly up on top on the counter to reach the sink and do the dishes, because you just can't get close enough to reach the faucet with that ginormous belly in the way.
