Corri, I agree, they're stupidly fugly! But WAIT till you slip a pair on. You won't give a you know what anymore!

(Says the girl who came back from Mexico with a hot-pink-pair)

Ok, I will not wear them to town or with socks. But around the house or to the beach? YES PLEASE!

You put on a shirt that you just wore three weeks ago and when you walk into the living room both dh and ds say "WOW, you've grown".

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...
LOL!!! So true..all of it. It's funny because last night I was watching Gallipoli on DVD with my husband (totally unrelated...just a great movie!) and I couldn't get comfortable so I propped myself up with three couch pillows and spread my legs out "like a frat boy" on the table. It was soooo comfortable, but my husband was laughing at me.

UGH on the spider veins too?! What is up with that??? Will they go away?? I found a new one last night! THAT MAKES TWO! Which is WAY too many.

This reminds me of something that's happened with both of my pregnancies. I go to put on a shirt I haven't worn in a week or two and go "Damn, this thing shrunk!" Only to realize it didn't shrink, I just got bigger!

Your DH/DP no longer takes it as an invitation if you sit all splaylegged and out of breath.

Your family has yet to put the winter blankets and clothing away, because you have hot flashes all day long which require open windows, even in 40 degree weather.

Spring cleaning this year was buying a bunch of 30 gallon tupperware tubs, tossing random crap in them, closing the lids and throwing them in the crawlspace.

I keep thinking, "I am as big as I should have to get, how could I possibly grow anymore?"

and running for the ringing phone, (actually waddling) and praying you make it before answering machine picks up.

Sitting on the couch, don't event know your bladder is full, but sneezing leaves very clear evidence that it is in a big wet spot. :

OMG I just have to say... This thread is soooo funny... I know it is because it is all so true, but I really needed the laugh today

You give up on "personal grooming" because, really, if you can't see it, it can't need any trimming, right?

You've begun pricing mini-fridges to use as a bed-side table so you don't have to walk to the kitchen to get your 4am meal.

Your pre-natal yoga, which DP used to find oh-so-sexy, has now become something he avoids watching, because of the leaking pee, the leaking boobs, and oofs, ughs, grunts and groans that come with it.

Sweeping the floor is a chore now done with a fuzzy bunny slipper on your foot as you swoosh/waddle across the room.

you know you're there when you send your co-worker (who you don't really know that well) an e-mail like this:

you're the best t***. thanks for letting me know about the staff training information.

btw - i went to american appparel after my class today - i love their
stuff but it was just not hapening for me at all. so if you have any
other pregnant friends, remind them not to try to go shopping for any
non-maternity items at 7+ months, ok? they'll thank you for it, i
promise.
see you friday!

I hear you on that one, for sure. I totally couldn't poop before I learned that trick. I hope it works just as well for birth.

Also... not being able to reach your feet to put socks on, clip your own toenails, or tie shoes, and completely having said, "Screw it", and converted to wearing sandals even when it's 40 degrees out because it's just THAT much easier.

You actually start AVOIDING cake and Krispy Kreme on account of the heartburn they cause you.
