I saw this on a couple of ddc except it was 8 months. But after this morning I know I'm 7 months pregnant when you drop a bottle of ketchup and end up spilling all over your fridge. You bend down and get on your knees to clean it up then take 5 minutes to figure out a way to get up off the floor. I actually laughed at myself and it was REALLY hard lol.

You go to the supermarket twice a day, every day, because you keep forgetting to buy things!

You start squeezing your nipples a little to see if any droplets come out. (Yes, I know I am weird!) Then, when a few drops do, you FREAK THE EFF OUT because you are SERIOUSLY going to have to feed a baby with those things soon!!!

You sit down at the table and bump the belly on the table because you did not pull the chair out far enough. I have done this around the same time with each pregnancy. I guess a growth spurt happens around the same time and I am like "WHOA! There is a belly in the way"

Yup to the heartburn, the burping and the grunting. Heck, I can't even tie my shoes. I just slip them on and hope for the best. Getting my socks on is a Herculean effort.

You have a hard time fitting in the shower with DH because your belly gets in the way.

Similarly, you constantly bump into people because you're not used to your new girth.

when you have to ask DH to put the recliner footrest down so you can stand up.

Oh I can not sit in booths anymore. Tables only for me.

Also, I have shut the door on my belly by misjudging the distance.

AND, I think it may be a matter of weeks before my seat belt does not fit around me at all. Then what!

WITH DH? I'm having a hard time fitting in the shower just all by myself!

Let's see... every morning it's a little bit harder to lace up my hiking boots to walk the dog. Similarly, got a pedicure on the grounds that it's too darn hard to reach my own toenails these days!

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!

Yanno, the seatbelt in my car doesn't really fit at all anymore & dh's truck is getting really, really snug. I'm not sure what to do when it doesn't fit anymore

"WITH DH? I'm having a hard time fitting in the shower just all by myself!"

We have a gigantic 5 or 6 foot shower, which usually has ample room for both of us at the same time. Not so much anymore.

And the seatbelt thing is getting worrisome here too.

When you spill what you are eating and it ends up on top of your belly instead of your lap.

You realize that when trying to squeeze past someone in a tight space that you really aren't any smaller sideways than you are straight on.

You know you are 7 months pregnant when you realize that burping can prevent acid reflux.

You have to break out the maternity girdle . . . you have to stand sideways to wash dishes in the sink . . . you can no longer bend over at the waist and either have to squat down to pick stuff up that you've dropped (again) or have to have your other kids pick it up for you!!

Your oversized jacked it getting tight.

Heartburn :

You've stopped picking up the blocks...better idea to just kick them all into a pile in the corner.

You wait until you absolutely have to run errands because doing so with a toddler you have to get in and out of the car is far too much work.

When your 3 y.o. gets frustrated trying to cuddle you and says, "Mama, where your lap go?"

I have to sleep in a reclined sitting position to alleviate the heartburn. I've got 3 pillows behind me and 1 under my knees. It's hilarious. Well it would be if I had the energy to laugh about it. I've got 10 weeks to go and I'm beginning to fear how big I'm going to get!
