When your DH has about six inches of space left in the bed.

When you can't find a bra that works right, so you give up and start wearing sports bra's all the time.

When you outgrow your first round of maternity clothes and have to buy the next size up...speaking of which, I know it's off topic, but I have to say that the pants I bought last November for $29.99 are now $45.99 at Motherhood Maternity, AND their return policy is now 10 days exchange only/no refunds! I'm boycotting them. I'll wear spandex from Target before I pay almost $50 for a pair of jeans!

...you wet your pants every time you cough, sneeze, squat, laugh, or simply wait too long.

And then sometimes you feel like you have to pee desperately and when you sit on the toilet you get drip, drip, drip...


...or maybe this is just me?

...When even your maternity shirts refuse to stay pulled down to cover your belly.

...When you keep waking up with your bum hanging out from under the covers, because there's not enough of them to cover all of you.

...When you go pee, and by the time you've stood up, flushed, and washed your hands, you have to pee again.

When you have your fortress of pillows at night that need to be tucked in precisely at the right angle (one behind the back, one under the belly, one between the legs, and two behind your head), and it takes about 15 minutes to get them "just right".

The novelty of the the big belly is kind of wearing off, and you start dreaming about buttons and belts again because you can't walk anywhere without constantly pulling up your maternity pants.

You are cautious about the way you walk because one false move can release a fart, always at the wrong place and the wrong time .

You go pee, and 10 minutes later are going pee again! Oy vey!

You get tired of saying the same thing 10 times a day & are thinking of having a shirt designed that says: I'm due in June - It's a boy - Yes we've picked out a name - No it's not my first.

I was having some incontinence issues and even bought pads, but then I started being super religious about my kegels and it's a lot better. I thought those things were so hokey until they actually helped me! Now it only happens if I really have to pee and sneeze, cough, etc. Then again, I still have 11 weeks to go, so I'm sure I'll get to that point again soon!!

Each day, I get more comments about my pregnant belly.

I GRUNT these days!

Suddenly, I'm as tired as I was throughout the first trimester... and I barely remember those months because I SLEPT THROUGH THEM!
Climbing into dh's truck I noticed I grunted, when I commented he told me 'Honey you grunt ALL THE TIME now!' I think if I hadn't read this thread & laughed about it already I would have been upset, instead I just giggled.

I thought of a new one. I am an emotional mess. Only at 7 months pg would I bawl like a baby at my sons band finals. And then I bawled even worse when they only got 4th place. I am a mess.

This is so me. I was in tears 3 times yesterday. Once in the morning 'cause I was feeling rejected (again) if you know what I mean.

Once later in the day 'cause DH and I were arguing over a closet reno that keeps expanding in scope and then again about the door frame around the same closet. I can't believe I'm crying over door frames.

I've been pretty even keel emotionally up until the last couple weeks but I think it's all kicking in at once.

I was angry yesterday because my crib still isn't in and I want to set it up, which is weird because I know I wont use it, but I want it up anyway because it will be pretty with his bedding. DH thinks I am going insane. HA.

I have to have constant reminders I'm only 7 months pregnant. It feels as if I'm at least 8!

... you realize you have more accidents than your 2 year-old.

... every time you sneeze your DH asks if you peed, and the answer is usually yes.

I like the one about turning sideways not helping you squeeze in between anything! That's totally me!

I'm with you all on a lot of these

How about when you are so uncomfortably full, the thought of food makes you feel gross. Then 5 minutes later you are starving and NEED to eat RIGHT NOW!

Oh, I can relate to SOOO many of these!

The heartburn....which was almost non-existant in the early months and is there all the time now.
The farting.....which is also stepping up its game.
The peeing.....both in the pants ALL the time and the frequency. I'm up to 2x a night now with waking up to go.
The belly.....bumping into things when you were SO sure you'd backed up enough to clear the thing.
The car....I've pushed my car seat back far enough so that I can still reach the pedals with my toes, and I've only got about an inch to go before my belly is resting on the steering wheel!

And finally......if someone can find a source for the t-shirt mentioned earlier, I'm in! "Yes, I'm having a baby. I'm due in June, it's a girl, her name will be Grace, and I'm measuring big, but everything is going along just fine." Maybe it's a Seattle-area thing...... I get asked the questions to all these answers just about every time I leave the house, from just about everyone we encounter. Fun times.....
