Having to reach into the washer sideways, and having to take my hand out, peek and then reach in multiple times to get it all.
Not being able to put a drink in between my thighs in the car.
Annoyances, nothing serious, things we can laugh at. Anyone want to share their musings?

Or my kids when they are standing under me.
Having to pee every time I stand up even if it's only been 3.5 seconds since I last peed.
Having to pull up my "below the belly" jeans every 17 seconds or (as luckily only happenen once while I was holding my 3.5 year old) have my pants fall to the floor in public.
Knowing that I'm supposed to be nesting but having absolutely no motivation or energy to clean or cook everything.
Wondering if any of the diapers I'm taking all this time to make are actually going to fit/absorb/work like they're supposed to.
-My hands going numb when I'm driving/drying my hair/pushing a grocery cart.
-Getting out of breath just from carrying ds up or down stairs.
-Doing yoga to wipe my butt properly :.
Taking an hour shower to relieve my pubic bone pain.
having contractions that will be 5 min apart, but wont go ANYWHERE after like 1 hour. Man that sucks.
sleeping on my left side, and having my left hand go numb.. CONSTANTLY!
putting the body pillow under my right side, to lean me over on my left, and then using my left arm to support my belly while i try to sleep. Yea, that doesn't work too well..
Yea, trying to roll over, when i'm HUGE, with a numb hand, is CRAZY!
of waking up to roll over so many times a night...
and then waking in the morning to find that I pulled a ligament or muscle in the belly, again, rolling over.
of the dizziness.
of dh telling me how much i need to take it easier and do less - but not stepping up to the plate to do those everyday things I spend all day doing.
of not feeling the nesting kick in yet - as I really need to unpack and clean my office.
of people asking if I'm having twins...then asking again if I'm sure.
river and mountain mama to two amazing girls, 8.25.05 and 1.13.08, and married to my soulmate of 18 yrs
Having to pee again by the time I pull up my pants.
Nesting and crashing, nesting and crashing, the never-ending circle of nesting and then crashing.
not being able to breathe.
my house being a constant mess because picking my kids' toys off the floor is just too difficult!
Mama to Boy (10) Other Boy (7) and Girl (4) in my profile!
Proud mama to three bouncing unschooled boys:, Ian5/02, Connor9/04, and Andrew1/08!:::: Milk Donors!
-people looking disappointed that I haven't given birth yet.
-My MIL insisting that I'm giving birth on Christmas eve/SIL insisting I'll give birth before she comes home (Dec.21) Is it bad that I don't want to give them the satisfaction? Sad thing is, I like my MIL and SIL
-Squatting to pick stuff up. Squatting in itself isn't bad, just the amount of effort it is to get back up
-walking down crowded aisles, and realizing that I take up more space when I turn sideways.
-waking myself up from snoring
ditto on doing the dishes sideways
water! ugh!! I'm sooooo sick of drinking water!
Having to replace the toilet paper roll 3x/day!
above mostly due to: pee, wipe, dribble, wipe, dribble, wipe routine. (tmi, sorry!)
I'm this aweful cold on top of all the stuff that goes w/ being 37wks
Mostly, I'm tired of my mother telling me that I'm going to go "any day now" I'm barely full term. And she's been saying this since October. :shocked:
