Signs you're hitting the third trimester

post #1 of 45

You're sitting on the couch. You're really uncomfortable. But it's too much of an effort to get up and find a more comfortable position

Your lying in bed at 1pm--one sock on, one off--not reading, not sleeping, just lying there for two hours staring at the wall because you've got no energy to get up.

Your kid has opinions to express about what and when you're eating, and isn't shy about it. Trouble is, it's tough to tell "I hate this stuff" from "more, mum!" through belly-kick morse code.

Does the extra moodiness count? I am ALL of the above, but MAN I am a moody woman... Not much sleep, moody, hungry, and feeling slightly anti-social lately....lol

When you've mastered the monkey-toe pick-up-and-fling-upwards-to-catch procedure because bending over to get something off the floor is just too much to handle.

Putting a bra on gets you out of breath.

Amen to that! I'm lucky to have a 4 yr old DS that is eager to help, I don't know what I'd do without him!

How about laying in bed at 4 am talking yourself out of needing to get up to pee because it is too much effort to get up. I do this every night. I tell myself that I really don't have to pee, it's just the pressure from the baby on my bladder. Then I end up waking up an hour or so later having to run to the bathroom so I don't wet myself.

When your toddler starts saying "hang on" in your exact tone of voice and you realize you've prefaced EVERY comment to her that day with "hang on, mama's coming" since you just don't have the energy to "jump to it" anymore.

Peeing, pulling up your pants, washing your hands, and then realizing you have to pee again.

How about pooping (if you get lucky), pulling up your pants, washing your hands, and then realizing you have to pee!

Every BH contraction makes me need to pee...so I go, I leave the bathroom, I get three feet away before another BH hits and have to turn right around and go pee again! Argh!

Bras are all too tight, but going without is miserable, too, because of the bowling ball boobs that demand a little lift to avoid weighing down the belly even more.

These are hilarious!!!

How about opening your freezer and 16 different cartons of ice cream fall out?

Crying because you can't find a restaurant that serves baked macaroni and cheese (regular will *not* do!) and you have a serious craving and you're too tired to make it yourself!

using the breathing techniques and jaw relaxation of ina may's to get your very stubborn poop out.
wanting to sit with your legs spread wide open like an obnoxious frat boy.
craving a perinium (sp?) massage b/c it feels like a bowling ball has been pressing against it all day.
shaving your legs but they still look hairy from all your spider veins...

Asking others' to tie your shoes for you.

Buying shoes that close with velcro (really, really cute Mary Janes, honest!) so that you don't have to ask for help. :

How about buying slip on no-back crocs, because you can't even put on your velcro shoes without help!

[shudder] I can't do the croc thing; I really really can't. I know they're supposed to be the most comfortable shoes in the universe, but they look like perforated rubber rafts. Fuuuuugly! :
