You Know You're Third Trimester When... - Page 2

you go anywhere and the braxton-hicks are uncomfortable enough that you slow down.. and scare the living hell out of bystanders who start reaching for their cell phones.. and THEN ask you if you're in labour.

When you have 4 errands to do and it is just you and the two little boys.
You do one and give up and go home.. and then contemplate putting the boys to bed at 5 pm because you are DONE!

But that is one less thing that has to be done later!

your house is a mess because if you can't pick it up with your toes, it doesn't get picked up

When you take your kids trick or treating around your subdivision via following them in the car because you know walking 3 miles is totally out of the question at this point.

...your shoelaces come untied and you don't care that your husband has to re-tie them for you like you're a 2 yr old.

...you shout out "OH!" in random public places b/c the kid has just stomped on your ribcage.

...you feel like you have UTI/bladder infection b/c the kid has just headbutted your pee receptacle.

...you start to feel like a character in "Alien".

you're currently thinking of a code word for 'I think I'm in labor' because your DH freaks out every time you say ouch or start acting differently.

You start to honestly wonder how you will be able to get through the cold months because you can't reach your feet to put on socks.

Your daily schedule is:
pee
clean something that doesn't need to be cleaned
pee
sneak a piece of chocolate
pee
clean something else that doesn't need to be cleaned
pee
panic about how little time you have to finish cleaning things that don't need to be cleaned
*repeat*

People stop telling you how good you look and instead tell you how big you look.

Also-- and I can't believe this one myself-- making the new Harry Potter movie on 11/19 seems a lot less important than it did three months ago.

Yeah, that! I want to be excited but all I can think about is: "Do I really have to sit in that theater seat for TWO HOURS?!?"

DDCC specifically for this:

You are eternally thankful that the park where you take your morning walk has FOUR bathrooms stationed along your 3 mile loop! And you use every single one!

A bag of candy is torture for 3 reasons:
1. You know you shouldn't be pigging out on sugar
2. Once you start eating, you can't stop yourself without an intervention
3. The baby decides he/she is going to hold the intervention by kicking more and harder than he/she has in weeks, especially in places that are already sore

[QUOTE=raspberry.swirl;15999751]It's been at least a month since you've seen your vagina.

So TRUE!!!! One day I was like "where'd she go?"

ALSO .....when your to-do-list takes twice as long and is twice as hard as it 'should'.
AND...you can't do your usual hike because squatting in the wet woods to pee 5X isn't an option!!

You don't sit in the comfy seats any more because it is just too darn hard to get up out of them again...
You plan everywhere you go and how long you will be gone for in terms of where the bathrooms are.
Rolling suddenly seems like the most efficient way to get out of bed.
You look hard at anything on the floor while trying to decide if it is really that important that it gets picked up or not...

You walk into your midwife/OB's office and think "wasn't I just here?" and realize that everyone knows you by sight now.

....you participate in a thread called "You Know You're In Your Third Trimester When..." and half the posts are about going to the bathroom. lol.gif

Your toddler son rushes up to hug your legs.  You look down.  And realize you can't see him at all!  Your belly obscures not only your feet, but your child's entire body.

Definitely.  And if HAS to get picked up and there's no one else around to do it you push everything around with a broom into a pile so you only have to get down that low once.  I keep seeing all these little pieces of wrapper on the ground in the kitchen and it makes me want to cry. mecry.gif

 

You pray your water doesn't break while you're cleaning because then it'll just be more mess you have to clean up!

 

Forget a first aid kit, you have an entire clean-up kit in the car in case your water breaks while you're shopping (which your DH/SO/OH is convinced is going to happen every time you leave the house).

 

Your labor/birth contact list is on your speed dial.  And voice dial.  You also delete recent calls to make sure you only have to press 'talk' twice to get to your doula... just in case.

 

You feel like a horrible mom already when you re-pack the diaper bag and realize you didn't add any socks.  You then add 3 pairs.
