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.

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.

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...

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! :

(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".

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. :

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.
