Signs the end is near... - Page 2

Or people looking at you in horror at the grocery store as if a baby is going to drop out of you at any moment....
Oh yeah! I'm getting this one! Although it seems to be working to my advantage....people are actually letting me go ahead of them in line! Like I think they are afraid I'm going to give birth right then and there if they don't let me through.

And when I have my DD with me they all help me unload my cart and shake their heads and whisper about how I'm REALLY going to have my hands full.

You know you are at the end when....

The baggers at the grocery store pack your bags soooo light there are only 2 things in each bag (resulting in 20 bags per grocery shopping trip!)

By 11:00 am you are already starting to think of nap time.

You take advantage of your 3 yr old DS's interest in helping - especially when you drop things or have to get things out of a bottom cabinet! (Poor little guy )

The idea of going more than 20 miles from the house freaks you out!

You wake 20 times a night and think..."What just woke me? Is this is? Could I be going into labor?"

You wake up and feel funny and don't know why. After much investigation, you find you have to *poop* and then you find that you are hungry! (My DH could not understand how I didn't know this is what was going on! I said, "scrunch up all your internal organs, add another human being in there and tell me you know what is what!")

Keep them coming, this is a fun, fun thread.

OMG, this is SO TRUE! I usually go grocery shopping with my DH, but last week, I had to go by myself and I had to reassure the bagger three times that I was on my way to pick my husband up at work and that he was going to carry the groceries in the house for me! (And then the manager came up and asked me AGAIN if I had someone to help me carry those into my house -- what were they going to do, follow me home and carry them in???)

Heck, I'd rather carry a heavier bag than take two trips back in -- I can lift things pretty easily (unless the belly gets in the way) but walking, that's painful!

And another sign-- when you drop something on the floor, your first thought is "Oh, cr*p", because you know it's gonna take 10 minutes to get close enough to the ground to pick it up, and 10 minutes to get fully upright again.
Oh man - LMAO here. SOOOOOOO true. My nailcutters are STILL under my nightstand where the fell, and I, like slow motion movie, yelled "noooooooooo" as they were falling from my fingers.

Another thing I am experiencing that i didn't with DD - red, blotchy skin. Seriously, it's quite gross!

Oh, yeah, continuously losing the plug here, too. Lots of icky mucous. Just waiting for the bloody show, too.

Me too. And, of course, even knowing what a mucous plug is, let alone the willingness to talk about it to people, is a sign in itself.

You're afraid the baby's going to drop out whenever you sit on the toilet.
post #34 of 40
You are sitting up reading this silly thread, because laying down hurts and "are those REAL contractions this time or what?" I've gone to the toilet like 6 times in the last hour, and then sit there feeling pressure but nothing coming out.

Laying down does hurt, but I can't sit up ALL NIGHT... so what to do? What to do?

I had to run to Target on Tuesday, and I picked out some baby clothes, and thought to myself, "If I walked enough that I actually made my water break, would Target give me these few groceries and baby clothes as a gift just to get me out of the store more quickly?.... Nahhhh"

last week, dd (2.5) wanted me to paint her toenails. then she wanted me to paint my toe nails too. i struggled to get the polish on them. she then wanted to try it... so i let her paint my second set of nails....at the end, you couldn't tell who did what foot! hopefully baby will be here before sandle season is in full swing

Ow, ow, ow! I have a torn muscle in my abdominal wall and it hurts to laugh!

I HAVE to get up between 2 - 3 AM every night to eat SOMETHING or I wake up and can't go back to sleep by 5:30 or so. If I eat in the middle of the night, I can sleep till the late hour of 7:30 or so (can you tell I am NOT a morning person?!?)

this morning opened a bottle of water-which I chugged down-because I can't drink anything at night or I get heartburn. Dropped the lid-managed to pick it up-immediately dropped it again-kicked it under the bed and figured I would wait until this baby was crawling and could find it himself.

Ha!! This is me right now. We have a firm mattress, which I usually love, but it just plain HURTS to be in bed right now so I'm up here after a potty stop. It's also hot here tonight and I'm just so freakin' miserable. I think I may just have to sleep on the couch.

This baby squirms and pushes so much--which believe me, I love--but tonight it was really painful. Dh said he thought she was confused and was trying to "hatch" as it seemed like she was trying to push her way out of my belly button!

This is a much-needed, fun thread.

Heartburn and endless pillow propping to find a comfortable position to sleep.

Twitchy legs!!

And, the fact that the toys my four-year-old leaves on her bedroom floor are now an insurmountable obstacle. I've just been closing her door.

I also now limit myself to getting down on all fours once-per-day to clean-up the Living Room of toys to my satisfaction.

And, calendar watching....

I am loving this thread because it is all so true!! The constant pooping, crazy ass heartburn, can't bend over, bruised pelvis...I could go on and on!
