On that note, I now have cheesecake! :-D
Ha ha, I have BEEN there! Trader Joe's by myself in my pajamas on a Saturday night, and somehow I come away with only cookies and ham and cheese hor d'oeuvres puffs. And this was before I was really showing!

I didn't even think of the paycheck thing - scary!

Also: you keep wanting to say things are "the new sex". As in, snacks are the new sex. Rolling your hips and pelvis around to stretch the owie joints and sore lower back is the new sex. Having DH push against your hips and lower back with his fists is the new sex.
I totally caught myself thinking "a satisfying bowel movement" is the new sex today - something almost rarer than a good orgasm these days! Sigh.

When shaving anything down there involves a strong background in gymnastics, a jumbo sized hand mirror and a supportive partner (and I do mean supportive, as in literally supporting/holding me up while I attempt to lawnmow parts of my body that I can't even see )

ah, when sleep is better than sex!

Today I had to use a stool to plug in the bread maker. With my belly in the way, I could not get my arms to reach to the end of the counter without the extra height!

When even your big maternity clothing is tight and any day spent at home is done so in yoga pants and your husband's t-shirt.

I love this thread.

I no longer fit in the desks at school. I take two seats in every lecture hall: one for me to sit in, and the other one to hold my stuff. I use the desk on the "stuff" seat.

I pee at least once every hour. If I go longer than that, I wonder if I'm dehydrated.

I squat to pick things up off the floor.

I sleep in a different room sometimes because I want more pillows than will fit on the bed with DH and DS both sleeping in the bed as well.

When reading this thread makes you laugh so hard you pee yourself...which wouldn't be a problem except your formerly gigantic grannie panties were cutting off your circulation so you took them off thinking "I'm not going to sneeze, I'll be fine".
Thank god for flannel pj bottoms!

DDCC:

When people no longer tell you how CUTE you look pregnant, but just start laughing when they see you. I'm 5'2" and 100 lbs pre-preg. I'm up to 146 right now.

When you have to pee SO bad it hurts - but this tiny little thimbleful is all that comes out.

When your belly is getting so big that it pushes down your jeans (but this has been going on for ages now) and also makes your underwear constantly ride halfway down your butt.

I call this "sumo panties". DH and I laugh about how my panties look when I get undressed for bed. The sides are rolled down and they are halfway down my buttcrack.

I've done this a few times at work. Not from constipation, just from all the TP it takes to wipe and do a relatively decent job. Thank goodness there's a plunger in the washroom.

- When your bra seems to be getting smaller and smaller, yet your boobs are disappearing in relation to your HUGE tummy when you look in the mirror. (And you fantasize about how hot you'll look when baby's out and you're engorged, haha).

- You have to turn off the Olympics because you cry after every single performance/race because you think of how proud their moms are. (omg I'm tearing up right now). And especially after that evil Proctor and Gamble commercial with the little kids getting ready for the races, then at the end it says something like: "They'll always be kids... to their mothers." WAAHHHH, water works every time!

When you read this thread and DON'T laugh. Instead you just think, "yeah, that sounds about right."

I am only 14 weeks and both of these are already true for me! I am rivalling DH with my mouth and he actually was a sailor until 7 months ago.
