This is a great idea and I thought we could all use a good laugh! I'm stealing the two I most identified with. Please add!

...if you feel you need a drumroll every time you turn over in bed (from Conchobhar)

...if you cross your legs every time you sneeze or cough b/c you'll wet your pants if you don't (and sometimes you do anyway!) (from Motherto4)

Happy wife and also mommy to my two boys, 12-12-07 (c-sec) and 04-05-09 (vbac!) and another due in December.

Good idea!! I thought it was great when I saw it over there too!

... when you sit down after emptying your bladder and immediately feel as though you have to go again.

... you are starting to outgrow your maternity clothes.

... you squat down to pick something up and find it very hard to get back to standing alone.

I can totally relate! But I still make an occasional attempt and wince with every clip - afraid I'm going to cut myself!

...when people ask you "When are you due?", then look at you in shock or disbelief when you give them a date that is almost 2 months away (happened TWICE this week, after someone else told me "You look like you're about to pop any day".

...when you eat 4 bites of something and feel completely full - for about 20 minutes until the baby moves again.

Haha!!! Great thread!

...When you need your partner to act like a forklift to haul you out of the bath tub.

...when you need to "take a breather" after putting one load of laundry in.

...when your family STOPS asking you if you need to go to the bathroom and just automatically stops in front of one and says "Mom!" if you didnt notice it when youre out and about.

...when youre perfectly comfortable using your belly as a shelf when you sit down!

...when you walk around Target for an hour and feel as though you have just run a marathon (seriously I just got back and my legs are so numb).

...to further the pee comment, when you are squatting to pee on a public toilet (yes I suprisingly still do this) and somehow manage to pee all over the place because it somehow ran off your belly.

when your husband finds it amusing to watch you get dressed

when you have to get your dh to tie the prgnancy shirts so you can lift your boobs into the right place (ok maybe only me since mine are so so big)

when your pregnancy shirts no longer cover the modesty panel on your pregnancy pants

But really rejoicing in being pregnant!!:
