Let's hope for neither! With my first, I had a small tear (no stitches) and some minor skid marks. The skid marks didn't cover a very large area at all (although I suppose they COULD have), and were much easier to recover from than the tear (which wasn't really all that bad). I'm hoping for neither this time!!
Here's a chuckle for all of you----last weekend, we got home from a day out running around, and I looked down to realize that my ONLY pair of maternity pants (jeans) had developed a huge split in the crotch.....Grrrr....I fixed them, as they needed to go in the wash anyway, but after coming out it was clear that the fabric was just too far compromised to make a fix possible.
So out I went to Old Navy the next morning to find another pair of pants for a whopping month or two. Oh well. These pants are probably more flattering on me anyway, but they're falling down like crazy. I got the kind that has the roll-down panel (or something like that), and it just won't stay up. We'll see if washing them helps shrink things up a bit.
But I was quite a sight, standing there in my split-crotch pants....I had to go shopping in them, too, as they were TRULY my ONLY pants!! But luckily I had fixed it, so even though the fix was coming un-done, it wasn't visible below my big belly.
Another small chuckle---DH ran in the Seattle Marathon yesterday, and I was carrying DS (2.5) on my shoulders at the finish line waiting for him. DS dropped one of his small stuffed animals, and without thinking I squatted down to pick it up, DS still on my shoulders. It took me nearly a full minute of being in a squat position before I finally mustered the strength to GET BACK UP!! Now, I have very strong legs, but squatting my pregnant self plus my 26 pound toddler on my shoulders was a bit much for me at this point, I guess. Luckily everyone's back was to me, as they were watching the finishers come in! The really funny thing is that I didn't even consider until later that I could have just put DS down....oh well!
