When you call people for anything, and they are instantly dissappointed that you are not calling to say you are in labor.

Oh, yes!

I was 23, but apparently looked 16 or so. Once when I was at a restaurant the ladies at the next table took a long look at my belly and started to cluck, "Kids these days..."

On the original subject.... you know you're eight months pregnant when you struggle like an upended turtle when you try to get out of bed.

You've brainstormed how to make the toilet and bathroom more comfortable...because it would be easier to just never leave.

Bwahaha!

Or, along the same lines, when you go for your 9:00 pee and just decide you may as well stick around on the toilet to catch your 9:07 pee as well.

when you wake up in the middle of the night and your undies are a little wet and you realize that you must have sneezed in your sleep when you couldn't consciously Kegel .

* when your mom calls 6 times a day to "check in". I WILL call when am in labor.... i promise.
* when you have incredibly elaborate food dreams.
(I guess the GD is making my brain replace sex dreams with dreams about eating bread, and jellybeans the size of my head. And "dunkless doughnuts": pre dunked doughnuts glazed post dunkage. And not mushy. )
* when you actually DO leave a pillow and blanket in the bathroom, because whats the point of going back to bed.
* when you start entertaining the notion of adult diapers in order to get a few more hours of lying down time without getting up.
* When you desperately hope for pink when you wipe, for the first time in 9 months.
* when you purposefully avoid calendars and clocks, because time is just crawling by.

When your DH comments that your normally large breasts look TINY compared to your tummy.

When you've actually considered wetting the bed because you really don't want to get up AGAIN

Yeah, what is up with that? They didn't know that we would need 4 -6 extra inches on the length of the shirt? And the next size up is no better!:


...When your in a pizza place and see the bus boy's stacked white plates with a napkin on top out of the corner of your eye and quickly turn to look since it looked like a multi layered cake with frosting. And then you intensly crave the cake you have imagined the rest of the night.

Bahahaha! Thanks for that!


When you're so sick of people asking you when you're "due date" is, you respond by rolling your eyes and saying, "Who knows? When the baby comes out?"

You don't bother wiping food off of your shirt at home...you're just going to eat again in 30mins anyway

You hold your tummy when coughing/sneezing/doing anything involving ab muscles because you know it's going to either hurt or cause BH...or both

Your belly sticks out so far the cat starts using it as a perch to sleep on...

the top of your stomach becomes crumb storage every time you eat a piece of toast...because for some reason every single crumb manages to find its way down your shirt...but of course you don't notice until later then start freaking out because you have forgotten that you have eaten said toast...lol

You drop something on the floor and spend at least 30 seconds staring at it while you contemplate it's importance...9 times out of 10 it stays where it fell.

When your friends and family offer you their food AND exactly whats in it the second you see them. Went to our friends tattoo ship the other day and when I walked in, 2 guys said AT THE SAME TIME "Lindsay, nachos for you!"

You have a list of movies you want to see AFTER pregnancy... You've refused to see them because 1) Your hormones are so wonky you'll cry about anything 2) You pee so often that sitting in a theater is a waste of time (you see more of the bathroom than the actual movie)

Your shirt is fine when you leave the house, but when you get in public you realize the baby has changed positions, leaving 4 inches of your stomach or maternity pants showing...
