She didn't say a work the next week when I told her he was head down again!!

I am going to be laughing about you ladies ALL DAY!!

Another story was when I rode my bike to drop a letter in the mailbox down the street.
It was very stupid and careless of me to get on a bike, I know, but somehow at that time it felt easier than walking. Well, I learned my lesson, because the seat broke off in the middle of the street. Very embarrassing!

Public restroom stalls were also always a challenge. I was afraid to get stuck inside sometimes.
That is seriously one of the funniest things I have ever read. I think my girls were just drifting to sleep and I distrubed them from laughing out loud! I will be giggling for days thinking of you knocking over a toddler with your belly.

I am in for twice weekly NST's and I take my 3yr old dd with me sometimes. After already going potty two times while waiting, she decided that she needed to go while I was hooked up to the mon. As she has only been potty trained for a few months I didn't want to tell her no and the bathroom was close I told her to go. While she was walking I hear her saying she was going to pee in a cup. For some reason she thinks it is great fun that mom get's to do that. Soon the lab tech caught her, she was hiked up on the potty, cup in hand ready to go.

I am literally laughing here to the point of tears!!

Here's one of mine. I was at my brother's house for the holidays and my daughter dropped one of her toys on the floor. I squatted down to pick it up and when I started to stand up, pee just started running down my leg, right there on his living room carpet in front of everyone.

I couldn't drive any more when I got about 32 weeks along because we have a Subaru with a manual transmission. When I'd push the seat back far enough to fit my belly, my leg couldn't reach to push the clutch in enough to drive.

When we moved into our current house, I was 37 weeks pg with my twins. I took my dd for a walk the morning after we moved in and almost every single neighbor was out there saying, "wow, we're amazed you can walk."

The booths, public bathrooms, the "gangsta" look while driving, etc.

I'm only 5' 2", so when I was pregnant with my twin boys, there was very little room for carrying them. I went from a 28" to a 56" waist, and I'm only 62 inches tall. Not to mention they were both transverse (side lying), so from the front, I looked like a gigantic football.

I was due in February, so to appeal a bit more to dh, I decided to paint my belly (body paints) to resemble a football. He had a Super Bowl party with all his friends, which I attended as the human football.

We had a little tikes football-shaped toy box set up as an ice chest in the living room, and the guys would jokingly reach for my belly to get their beer.

My middle son would seek shelter from the rain by standing under my belly at the bus stop.

At 5 months, I looked 9 months so for months on end people thought I was due any minute. We lived in a very small town way out in the middle of nowhere. People would ask when I was due, and their jaws would drop in shock when I said I had a few more months to go.

I became very tired, very quickly of people asking if I was over due, so I would just reply, "Yah, the experimental drugs are working well. If I keep taking them, I can carry the baby until it's out of diapers."

But the absolute funniest thing happened to me at the grocery store, shortly after they were born (they were about 4 weeks old).

DH was on deployment, and so grocery shopping meant taking a ride on the "baby" train. I'd snap each of their carseats into the seat part of a cart, push one in front of me, and the other behind, as I was making my way through the store.

Now keep in mind we're still living in Small Town USA. One could clearly see (or at least I thought) that the twins were twins at 4 weeks old. I was approached by a spunky elderly woman, decked out in her Sunday Church attire. She came up to each of the twins, and was OOOOOOing and AWWWING over them. She then turned to me and said, "Giiiiirrrrrlll . . . you must have had pregnancies BACK-TO-BACK!" She then looked down at my belly and asked, "So when is THIS one due?" OMG

Well I officially cannot cover my belly. It is SO big that even though i'm wearing maternity sizes 2 size bigger, I still show muffin-top. My chiropractor commented on my innie and found it amazing that It didn't pop out with the size I am!

I walked into a door nob by turning too fast. Now my belly button is all bruised. I keep telling people that it's because my husband is blond (which he is... he's not appreciative ).

Driving is almost impossible.

I keep finding dry patches of skin. Found one on the top of my foot. It wasn't skin... I dripped colostrum on my foot and it dried there.
