Thats it!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I am now down to one skirt and two tops that still cover me and don't make my contractions worse.I am bigger around than I was with all my other baby's (like 5 inches bigger).I still need to leave my house and this is not the place to wear sweats. I can't sit anymore because he gets upset and starts waving limbs around which starts up more contractions. I can't drive on my own without possibly causing an accident.I can't pick anything e floor, getting up off the toilet seat has become a struggle.All I can do right now is sit in a really funky position or stand and lean, not good with 3 smart,fast little monkies.
I have decided that I am not going to even attempt to wait until my mom gets here on the 12th.I am telling this baby right now that he will be here by Sun.I am going to my last appt today and finding out the results of my tests and then thats it.Welcome baby!
Anybody else feel like having a Cinco de Mayo babe?:

If you aim for Sunday instead of Saturday, then the baby's birthday is 05/06/07!



This is what I am aiming for--I'm due on the 13th, but this baby is way too large and wiggly and I am feeling more and more uncomfortable every day.

Yep, I'm parting with maternity clothes left and right here. My poor friend, I've been giving her back her mat clothes in dribs and drabs - I just want it out of my house if I can't wear it anymore.

Yeah, me too. I still have enough to wear, though, but have outgrown several pants. Shoes, too.

YES I relate to everything you are saying. This city is soooo fashionable, even brand new mothers are dressed in stilettos and skirts. Nothing fits me, not even my pjs I am so embarassed to be outside in these grubby black cotton sweats and a t shirt because it's the only thing that goes over my body.. I can barely walk and still ahve to put my 18 month old in a trailer and ride my bike 15 minutes each way, twice, to bring my son to his "kinderhaus" in the mornings for a couple of hours and also do all of the shopping on my bike. I'm tired of the limitations and ready to move on.

I'm impressed! I wouldn't even dream of getting on my bicycle right now!

I was about 20 lbs bigger at the end of my last pregnancy, so I have the strange problem of maternity clothes that are too big or too small. I can't wear most of my full panels, so that leaves low rise (which are getting lower by the day and falling off my butt) with shirts that have a shrinking hemline. Great.

I have switched to all dresses, which is very comfortable right now. Nothing else is comfortable or fits well.

i've been wearing skirts, too, but the feeling of my thighs rubbing together is kinda irritating!? i also have some denim capris that are not too comfortable but the 2 pair of gauchos are great! they're both non-maternity, too, so i'm sure they'll get me through the awkward post partum period when i never know what to wear!

i have a bin sitting outside my closet that i've been slowly filling up with maternity clothes that are too wintery or don't fit me anymore. needless to say, the closet is looking bare.

Yes, Meg_s I am impressed that you are bike riding. Good for you!

If I just walk with my son while he rides his bike in the neighborhood, I have this feeling that people are watching me through their sheer curtains, wondering if I'm going to explode in front of their houses.

Yeah, shoes are a problem. I have 2 pairs of flip-flops and a pair of those gardening clogs that fit right now. I am loathe to buy anything else at this point.

I can't wear those underbelly pants! I just don't like the feeling! So I'm wearing whatever pants I have left with big honkin' panels in front. Dresses would be nice but I only have a couple that fit and they are sorta dressy. I have no shorts but luckily it hasn't gotten too warm here YET. I will probably cut off some pants before I buy any shorts, but talk to me if it gets up to 80...

I got really lucky at the Target clearance rack at the end of last summer--basic black and brown dresses were like $10 each! Then I also had to take a trip to Florida in January and had to buy a few things then that ended up being on sale.

I was so angry at the late spring we had, but now I am happy to be able to wear all that stuff again.

As for the thighs, I dust a bit of powder on.

I've been wearing my birkenstock clogs almost exclusively! I also wear flip flops. I don't want to buy any shoes, though, I have no idea what my feet will be like in a month.

the bike riding isn't an option, I'm hoping to have this baby soon just to get a break from my knees hitting my belly and listening to the bike creak and thinking it sounds like I'm going to break it. Hahah as much as I am not excited to have to get on the bike for at least an hour every day given the choice between having my spirited 18 month old home with me all morning every morning and taking him to have some fun at the kinderhaus while I get 2 hours to myself I'll choose the bike.

I'm laughing at the people wondering if Willzmama is going to explode.. I get a lot of looks lately, red, sweating, huffing and puffing with this massive belly on the bike.

How about the weather? That is screwing me up like you wouldn't believe. I have maternity clothes for winter, and here in New England it only became consistently warm this past week. I so don't want to buy summer maternity clothes seeing as how I will probably only be preggers for a couple more weeks, but I am seriously running out of suitable clothing.:

I have blown out a pair of pants already
post #17 of 18
I considered going out and buying a new maternity top, hoping that I would end up going into labor and not being able get any use out of it...

I swear people must have been doing that yesterday when DH insisted upon a walk up our hill (which gets my heart rate up pretty high even when not pregnant and normally active). Fortunately, I had DD walking with me to help slow down the pace... but I was contracting like crazy and thought for sure that would be the end of me!
