You know you're in the 3rd trimester when.... - Page 4

post #61 of 124
Your kids have to paint your toenails for you.
In fact, your kids are now your robots to retrieve things for you, put your shoes on for you, etc.
The dreams are getting crazier by the day.
You panic and realize that you have absolutely NOTHING ready for the baby and there is only 7-12 weeks left!!!

...when the fact that UPS didn't bother to deliver the package of baby things you ordered (and for some reason decided it needed to be signed for even though you NEVER have to sign unless you happen to be home) and left you with nothing but a sticky note makes you want to yell, scream, cry, and go to bed all at the same time.

you can't hunch over when you're sitting here tired and reading because you squish the baby and the baby gets mad. so then you straighten your back to give the baby some space while simultaneously treating yourself to a nice deep (and by that i mean normal) breath-but your back is too fd so you quickly sink back into the hunched over position and squish the baby and the baby gets mad.

You're up at midnight forcing down eggs and a spoonful of peanut butter because you didn't eat enough calories/protein during the day and woke up hungry and nauseous because if it!

...you end up staying up too late EVERY night and you know it's too late because you're hungry, AGAIN, right when you're tired enough to go to bed.

...you know that when you've eaten and stuffed yourself that you'll be ravenous again in about an hour.

...you think that you only have 10 more weeks before you'll stop being nauseous for no reason.

The waking up or not getting to sleep super late because of hunger thing. How I loathe thee. Nothing like realizing at 12:30 that the stomach growling will not go away and the huge green smoothie you just had just won't cut it.

This is mine exactly lol! I go through this cycle all day, every day.

Also:

When you get up in the middle of the night to pee and the instant you start to slide back under the covers you have to pee again.

When you're drinking 3 gallons of milk a week by yourself because it's the only thing that soothes the heartburn

When even THINKING about exercise makes you pull a muscle.

When you don't even dispute the fact that your kids are faster than you.

...when despite your size and awkwardness you feel compelled to clean the jets on your bathtub with a toothbrush, wash your curtains, and clean and dust everything in sight.

When you are sooo uncomfortable that it feels like you have a too-tight bra on...and you are not wearing one at all.

when you cough in the night and simultaneously pee yourself and feel like a muscle in the center of your belly just tore in half...

when you are starving from not eating all day (due to being sick) then eat a bowl of cereal that expends in your belly that is all squished and you proceed to feel like throwing up for the next 2 hours till you digest it...

When it's hard to read a book because if it's under the belly you can't see it and if it's above the belly your swollen hands fall asleep or are in pain from holding them up.

Yup. DD says "I win!" whenever she beats me somewhere. Which she always does, these days.

This exactly. I've given up on trying to read.

You pee all the time, but when you do, it takes FOREVER to trickle, trickle trickle, out. (As you lift your belly up, lean forward, lean backward, trying to get baby off your bladder.)

Ugh, I was just thinking this yesterday after I "raced" upstairs to pee in a distorted waddle because I was thisclose to peeing in my pants only to have it dribble-dribble for 10 seconds, tops.

Oh bladder, how you deceive me.

...when, after an unusually strenuous afternoon of sitting around in the shade, you ponder taking a nap at 7:00 so you can handle kid bedtime at 8:30.

(I actually did more than just sit around all afternoon, and it was 90 degrees out and I'm sure I'm dehydrated. But still....)
