Someone started this in the Feb DDC and I thought it was fun, so here goes:

- You feel like you are about to pee your pants you have to go so bad, but when you actually get there, only a small amount comes out. And then you have to pee 10 minutes later.

- You get down on the ground to put on your LOs shoes and realize you forgot socks...and put them on with no socks because it's just too hard to get back up and down again.

- You blindly shave your bikini area, hoping not to injure any parts, because you can't see that area anymore.

- You can take a 2 hour nap at 2pm and still fall asleep on the couch at 9pm.

-You've got a whole closet of clothes, and MAYBE 2 outfits that fit...but still feel more comfortable in pj pants or dps clothes...or in my case dhs pj pants!

-Again, you've got multiple pairs of shoes and maybe one pair that fit!

-can't put your socks/shoes on standing up

-when you have the option of going up one small flight of stairs or taking an elevator, you actually stop and ponder it...your in your third trimester if you chose the elevator, cause you get short winded just thinking of attempting the stairs

-you go to a restaurant, study the menu carefully, order then either eat yours and half of dps OR you decide when it comes to the table that you want to "switch" with dps.

-Your two new favorite words to anyone eating..."WANNA SHARE???"

-You find yourself getting irrationally annoyed by things you can normally ignore or that wouldnt otherwise bother you... like the jerk sitting behind you chewing gum with his mouth open, people wearing heavy cologne/perfume, people who stare at your belly like its a sideshow freak, people standing too close in an elevator, skinny women who make comments about how huge you look, the sound of the keyboard, the sound of DH sleeping, waking up in the morning, shoes... pretty much everything else in between.

- you can't reach to shave your legs

- don't even want to think about trimming 'down there'

- want the baby to stop moving so you can fall asleep

- don't want to walk anywhere, but also don't want to sit down

-You keep getting up to pee, so you finally consider sleeping on the toilet.

-You look at your DH sleeping so peacefully and you want to reach out and slap him

Shh, don't tell him!

When you drop things, you seriously consider whether they're worth bending over for or if they can wait for DH to come home. (*sigh* I usually have to pick them up, DD gets into stuff!)

...you order or make a bunch of food because you're starving but only get to eat a few bites before you can't fit any more in your stomach.

...you go the bathroom everytime you pass one, just to save the walk later.

You pee on your hand every.single.time you go to the dr. and give a urine sample.

It gets to the point where it's hard to wash the dishes b/c you can't stand close enough to the sink.

:

- you can't clip your own toenails

- you pee your pants when you laugh too hard (I just did the first time today! my boyfriend was chasing me around the apartment and I was laughing SO hard...luckily it wasn't much, but so embarrassing!)

You kick all the toys in the playroom into one pile so you don't have to bend down and get up repeatedly.

You try to make your toddler get you your slippers, water bottle, etc. so you don't have to move from the couch.

-snore so loudly now that you wake yourself up. After just falling back to sleep after a pee/heartburn relief/snack/position change/thumping baby/waking toddler.

-you sit down in a stand-up shower to shave your legs, reach to turn off the faucet, crawl out of said shower so that you can boost yourself with the toilet to standing position.

-It takes you five minutes to roll over, get into position, drop your legs off the side of the bed, slide out of the bed/kind of sit up, get your bearings, and finally stand up.

-You have to swing your arms when you walk to gain enough momentum to propel yourself forward.

-you get halfway up a flight of stairs just fine... next half takes you twice as long and you have to catch your breath at the top.

- getting cramps in my shoulder from typing because no matter how close I pull the keyboard to the front of the desk the belly is not making office life ergonomically correct. lol

- nearly falling over from pulling a pair of pants on standing up... maybe it's time to sit and figure a new way of dressing...

-your shoulders slump in defeat when you drop something and have to bend over to pick it up. (and you are particularly clumsy so you drop everything) and God forbid you drop food... not only do you get the shoulder slump but also the almost uncontrollable urge to cry over dropped food. (I cried over dropping string cheese and tried to pick it up like 4 times and dropped it every time. Finally DH had to pick it up and open it for me so I wouldnt drop it again.)

- you find yourself asking your 6 year old to tie your shoes...

Fortunately I have learned to pick up things with my toys. That doesn't work for everything though, so I will holler for my kids to do it. If they are there and I drop it, I just have to give them a look (usually it is an unintentionally pathetic one) and they pick it up.

rockportmidwife - I pick things up with my toes too. I always have. My children and I have monkey toes. Its freaky. They are like a second pair of hands... the problem is transporting item from toe to hand.

My bedroom is in the loft and there is no bathroom upstairs so I have to go up and down several times a night. And I cant sleep on the couch... it kills my back.
