when reading the storyline description of this children's book sends you into a bout of hysterical, tears rolling down face can barely breath kinda sobbing.

don't say i didn't warn you

i bought the book immediately.

We have that one. It's one of the ones that DD1 loves to pull out when she wants to laugh at me because I'm unable to finish reading a book because I'm crying.

...when you cook dinner standing sideways at the stove so you don't burn your belly.

oh man. how cruel!

the book came and I made DD read it to me instead of reading it to her. It was easier to hide the crying since I wasnt the one reading.

... when you are starving every 2.5 hours and you feel it's totally unfair because your MW only told you to eat at least every 4-5 hours.

... when you go to a baby shower as the most pregnant woman there, avoid the cake because you're not supposed to be eating sweets and carbs, and then win a big bowl full of candy bars in a game.

when you toss and turn all night and can never get comfy then realize you are starving so you get up for a snack at 4am then still cant fall asleep because you now have heartburn (from a piece of toast?!)

when you feel completely compelled to reorganize, clean and declutter your entire kitchen and cannot stop till its completely done (including washing out under the sink) even though you know it will be a mess again before baby comes..
but man it feels good to get these things done!

Amen to that, MamaFern. I also had a middle of the night snack. Banana at 3 am even though I hate them just because I could stuff it down quickly and hopefully sleep.

I'm thinking I should just start keeping some food on my nightstand, and save myself the trek to the kitchen in the dark!

...when you whine more than your 2 year old. <------This is me today. Sigh.

When filling your bathtub even to the top fails to keep you wet, let alone cover your belly which sticks up like a volcanic island.

When you can't even fit in the dang bathtub.

When you try to lay back in the bath to relax and you can neither lay down semi-comfortably or get *out* of the tub.

Oh yes, this would be me bitterly typing on my itouch from my worthless bath.

also, when you pull your round ligament laughing and end up crying in pain or hunched over like Quasimodo because of it. The kids really think this is hilarious, btw.

when you have to wear platform shoes to drive because you are short but your belly is huge and too close to the steering wheel which poses a problem for reaching the pedals.

OMG, I had the sharpest round ligament pain last night, ow, ow, ow. I thought for sure I tore in half.

YKYITTTW: When you eat a half of a chocolate bar while cooking dinner and then chug a glass of milk and take sip of your Cabernet only to find that the chocolate + milk left an undesirable taste in your mouth so you have to go brush your teeth before you can enjoy your wine.

When you take 5 bites of dinner and realize you don't have room for any more (probably from the chocolate bar + milk ).

You have to rely on your feet when breaking up sibling wrestling matches that have gone too far because you can't bend over to pull them apart with your hands.

When you start to wonder if all that popping and crackling coming from your pubic bone as you attempt to roll yourself out of bed means you somehow shattered your pelvis.

When rolling out of bed causes some crazy sounds to emit from your bones....

When you've got all of the children in your life trained to pick up things off the floor for you and have no problem bribing them to get their assistance!

When, after a bad night, you fall asleep at 10:00AM, sitting on your birth ball, with the kids playing noisily in the same room, and manage to sleep for an hour and a half, and wake up with your neck stiff, but your lower back feeling much better!

I agree, and think I'm going to go do it again now.

...when you have absolutely no idea what substance just soaked your pantyliner. Was that discharge? Pee? Semen? Amniotic fluid?

DDCC - When you dream of the day when you'll be able to take a full breath again. I can semi-manage if I lean really far back but once heartburn kicks in... forget it.

...your toes have developped enough dexterity to pick up a coin dropped on the floor, this skill being developped primarily out of necessity.

...your cat tries to lay on your lap, but gets kicked off by the baby.

...your husband quivers in fear when certain commercials come on, due to the inevitable crying jag that will follow.

I've been thinking about posting this exact thing myself all day today.

I've been having some incident or other that makes me wonder if my water has broken at least every few days, though no evidence that it actually has. I think we need to stop dtd till after 36 weeks though, just for my peace of mind.
