I can't shake the over heated feeling.
Hey, we live pretty close by!

So far, I've been okay with this heat wave because during the day I just float in the pool and the nights haven't been too much for me - sleeping in just undies. I hope it cools back down soon, though.

LOL - men stop staring at your boobs, old women start staring at your belly!!

I get a kick out of it when men start giving you a onceover, starting with your face, moving down to your boobs and then suddenly averting their eyes when noticing the belly! Ha! Like they've said to themselves, "Eww I can't believe I just had that kind of thought about a pregnant woman!!"

What else?

You grunt or groan every time you stand up or sit down

You've started waddling in an oh so attractive way

your big boobs now look small in comparison to the rest of you

You have trouble negotiating the door in bathroom stalls (I keep hitting my belly on them!)

You keep getting asked "Are you having twins?" or "Is your due date soon?"

You sleep sitting up because you get heartburn anytime you lay horizontally

You can sit for hours watching the waves across your belly as your baby moves

You constantly say to the family, "the baby just kicked me, come over here and feel it!!"

I keep getting asked if I'm sure there's only one in there. It's really starting to piss me off.

Also keep getting asked if I'm sure I'm not due sooner... like maybe in October. No I'm pretty sure of when we conceived!!! Wanna see my charts?!

I knew when I got these two comments from coworkers in one day:

"How far along are you now? Eight months?"
-"Six. Not till Thanksgiving."
"HOLY S**T are you serious??"

(Talking about whether or not I should chop off my hair into a pixie cut)
"Don't you want to wait until after the baby...you know, so your face isn't so round anymore?"

Thanks for the self-esteem boost, guys

YKYITTTW....

...you break out the maternity overalls. Ahhh....so nice not to have an elastic band around the belly!

I *need* some maternity overalls now!

luckiest-

I got somewhat similar responses when I told my friends that I was chopping 15 inches off my hair in the 2nd trimester. I wanted to donate it and cut it to chin length.

They all gasp and said "but what if your face gets really fat later on in pregnancy!?! You are so going to regret this.."
Thanks guys..for nothing, lol.

I chopped it off anyways and am super happy with my easy-fix short hair. Luckily, no facial swelling but even if it does happen, who cares? I'm bringing another human being into existence. Doesn't that say enough?

...you are enjoying a lovely bath, and when you let the water out, the full force of gravity comes back on your belly with a thud

...when you can't reach around both your belly and your toddler anymore to put on their pants or socks or shoes

So *that's* why people wear maternity overalls! I had no idea.

I have at times felt much more comfy simply leaving everything UNDER the belly. Though I have to be careful with that as the drat c/s scar that's 8.5 years old will start hurting.

Maternity overalls (and, for that matter, overalls for toddlers/preschoolers) have always struck me as rather impractical. Why are overalls considered ideal for someone who has to pee every 30 seconds?

Better than a maternity bodysuit though, I suppose

I'm the same way. I always end up folding down the waistband on pants that are supposed to cover the belly, and those full-panel pants are right out.

On the subject of peeing...

You know you're in the third trimester when you have to drink a liter of water per hour or you have contractions.

...and having a full bladder makes you have contractions...

...and peeing makes you have a contraction, too.

YES! Especially numbers 2 & 3! That contraction just as you finish up peeing is excruciating!

Yeah, the overalls are pretty darn ugly. But comfy. You may have a point about the peeing...I guess the comfort is worth the unbuckling!

In other news, I have a cold with a terrible cough and I wet myself for the first time the other day during a coughing fit. I was on a walk with my mom. I never thought it would happen to me, but it did!

water gives you heartburn!

OY! and all I want is to drink endless gallons of cold, cold water!

Yup, bad coughing and sneezing are the only times when I really have a problem with it.

Your belly is now on the steering wheel and wants to do the driving.
Your "garden" has now become a "jungle".
You surpass the duck waddle and move into orangatang stride.
Your belly now pushs your breast into your armpits.
You wake up in the middle of the night and notice you laid on your boobs and are leaking.
You post weekly updates on fb of your countdown.
You have rearranged your nursery atleast 5 times and will have to do it again...and again.
You notice that your house has been overrun by dust bunnies, but think you'll ge to it tommorrow because just the thought of cleaning them has made you too tired today.

...you are on your third pair of underwear for the day because you keep peeing your pants when you sneeze

...you can't fit a standard bath towel around your belly anymore

...you get a backache from doing the dishes because your arms aren't long enough to reach into the sink

...you have to sit on the floor of the store to try winter boots on your kid because you can no longer stoop...and then you can't get back up

...your toddler likes to help you get off the couch by pulling on your arm and yelling 'heavy!'

I can't think of any new ones but I definitely agree with the ones about:

-getting a backache/wet belly from doing the dishes
-not being able to reach upper shelves
-the quick reaction to avoid leg cramps when waking up
-the HEARTBURN!! I gave up trying to avoid it, everything causes it so I just eat tums
