You know you're in the 3rd trimester when.... - Page 2

post #21 of 124
...when you end up with a wet strip across your belly every time you do dishes.

...when sleep eludes you even though you are yawning every two minutes.

---

Oh, the crying thing! I was awake for 2 hours the other night, and only managed to go back to sleep after BAWLING for about 10 minutes. Over what, I'm not sure. I'm glad DH didn't mind comforting me, and I'm surprised I didn't wake DS, I was that loud! But it helped me sleep, so

Omg I love the mopping one.

What about...

You wear long pants in 90 degrees because you haven't been able to shave for a month. But you wear sandals because someone ELSE can give you a pedicure and your feet are the hotest looking part of your body.

You consider entering your toenails in the Guinness Book of world records because you can't reach them to cut them!

Your cat curls up on your belly because it's the warmest part of your body (btw, this is also VERY uncomfortable, the cat is heavy!)

You can't reach the bottom of the deep freeze anymore.

...when your husband thinks you're exaggerating the amount of grunting, sighing, and other noises involved in making the kids' bunk beds (or any other everyday task).

...when you alternate between "OMG a baby is going to be here soon soon soon!" and "OMG I really have two months left of increasing discomfort?"

...when you worry you might be dehydrated when you DON'T wake up 3x/night for the bathroom.

...when you stay up all night debating car seat choices, spend multiple days making trips to stores to see car seats, and STILL can't make up your mind.

...when your friends say, "Gee, you've got the waddle already!"

1) you tinkle a little in your pants like everytime you have to carry your toddler farther than a few steps.

2) your bladder never feels totally emptied! ack!

3) the challenges of getting in and out of bed, socks and pants are the most dreaded obstacles every day.

4) when you debate making a pot holder protector for your belly because cooking with the belly has just gotten VERY interesting and a little hot. lol

Laura-my cats do the same thing. My big male cats all assume my stomach is the perfect perch and they are over 16 lbs. each. Crazy animals. Baby does like the purring, though...

when you stretch in bed and think oh sh!t!!! leg/hip cramp and scramble like a crazy person to reverse the cramp you've got starting.

when you stretch in bed and your crotch snaps and cracks along with your hips, knees, back, etc.

when hiccups in your crotch are exciting.... because that means baby is head DOWN.

I keep my pot lids above the stove and realized the other day, I'd better start getting them down BEFORE I start cooking! Belly burn would be so not fun.

i dont know if anyone did this one yet..

but..

when you can spaciously rest a cup of tea or plate on the top of your belly while lounging on the couch or sitting in the rocking chair

and when your kids complain that your lap is getting too small and that your "fat tummy" is getting too large..

my dd said to me the other day "when you get REALLY FAT does that mean the baby will come out? i didnt even feel like arguing with her.. its pretty much true at this point

...your 5 year old son looks at a muffin and says "look! it's big and fat just like your belly!"

...you have a constant supply of cleavage crumbs cuz you can't lean over your food anymore.

...you have to stand sideways to take laundry out of the washing machine.

...your house is a constant mess because just the thought of all that bending over to pick crap up is so exhausting.

...a king size bed is no longer big enough for 2 adults and a toddler (who climbs in at 2am every night).

...your 5 year old daughter asks EVERY DAY if the baby's coming out today.


that's all i've got for now. the rest has already been covered

There's a pile of pens under your work desk that are staying there until after your maternity leave.

Ugh! I had one of these this morning - they are SO excruciating! Thank goddess DP knows how painful they are because I jab him in the back & groan "cramp!" and within seconds he's standing on my side of the bed flexing my foot back toward my shin while rubbing my calf.

This is right up there with when I realize he's scrubbed the toilet w/o being asked.

You and I must be pregnant soul-sistahs.

DP & I were *just* talking about this last night! Ds (4) still co-sleeps with us and I don't think either of us is ready for him to leave (him or me.) But he's getting SO big! Early, early this morning I had to flip him around to get his feet off my pillow. It's hard enough to flip myself around.

I'm thinking of a twin mattress that slides under our queen bed - like a trundle. Maybe DP can build some sort of shallow wooden thing for the mattress to lay in... I thought about putting the baby in a co-sleeper, but that would require to much work on my part.

Oh wait! I have a new one...

You know you're in the third trimester when you find yourself floating in the swimming pool with your belly & legs blissfully free of anything but water while gazing up at the sky thinking that the only thing that could make this moment any better is a personal sized cheesecake.

As long as you bring your own, come on down!

when you think if you have to try to live through one more heat wave while being this pregnant, you may have to move to a nude colony because clothes + hugely pregnant + heat = GRRRR!!!

I can't shake the over heated feeling.
