...when you find yourself wearing all kinds of weird outfits because those are the only clothes that fit anymore.

(e.g. Blue velour lounge suit, a maternity hand-me-down from my sister.)

I have been wearing the same jammy bottoms for days(well until I had to take them off and wash them bc I pee'd in them lol) bc they are the only ones that fit me! And yesterday we had to go to walgreens to pick something up and I said "I sure wish I could wear my house slippers..." I could care less what I wear in public...I wish I could go naked...nothing fits, why bother?! I refuse to buy anything else maternity. REFUSE!

When you don't know the panel on your maternity pants is showing until you look in the mirror, and then you don't care.

- when you plan your errands around town to make sure that at least every other stop has a nice, easy to access bathroom

- when you decide which stores to shop at based on the layout of their bathrooms (the closest coop has bathroom stalls are just TOO small! I can barely turn around in there. The one across town has lovely, palacial stalls.)

- when you have an extra pair of clean undies in your purse, "just in case".

Susanna be sure to take a picture in that blue lounge suit. Seriously one day you will treasure it.

*when you cry because you can not tie your shoes

*when you cry because you got stuck between the closet door and the closet

*when you cry!

* you try taking your pants off while standing up and end of falling into the wall or on the bed

* ummm.....no patience at all with your 3 year old!!

Getting back into the groove of being groovy!

You are in bed on your right side and you get an itch on the right side of your right leg...so you go to itch it with your left hand....and it won't reach...

When you shave your legs(once in a blue moon) and you can't get the outside of your leg bc you can't get your leg around the bump...

lotion too...how are we supposed to reach the bottom portion of our legs???? and our feet???? I'll tell you how: DH.

I just had to have my DH start doing this in the last couple of weeks. I started wearing my tennis shoes and socks when we go out so that my ankles don't get so fat. And he has to almost untie/unlace the entire shoe to get it on!

This is the only way I make it to work in the morning. There's no way DH would get up at 6 in the morning to put my shoes on, no matter how pathetic and pregnant I am!

This happened to me last night. DH and DS took me out to dinner and we sat at a booth. My belly was less than 1/4 inch from the table and I had to sit up very straight. I could have asked for a chair and sat in the aisle, but I would have felt like a moron! No more booths for me!

LOL!

That's why my rule is to always sit down before trying to put on or take off pants, socks, or underwear!!
