-your husband (with the very sensitive sense of smell) tells you you smell funny, and you hope this is a sign of a hormone shift and impending labor.

-you spend all day on the toilet but feel vindicated when you can see definition in your ankles for the first time in 3 weeks. (I must have lost like 4 pounds of water weight today. And my ankles are SO PRETTY!)

-you need help rolling over in bed because the weight of the baby pulls way too much on your round ligaments and it HURTS.

Ok unpopped mamas, you have to be able to add to this list!

LMAO ok seriously, I am going to the bathroom right now to check.

You know you are 9 months pg when you scare little children with your screaming "ouch" in the grocery store.

When standing up from the couch is a major production which takes multiple starts and stops, a huge amount of effort and at least a little help. And by the time you finally manage to get up you can't remember what you wanted.

When every time you make plans or an appointment for more than a day ahead you add the condition, "That is, we'll be there IF baby isn't born yet/I'm not in labor..."

When family members can have whole conversations about whether or not you've dropped.

When you consider it a good night's sleep if you've only been up to go to the bathroom 4 times, plus woke up with screaming hip pain another 3 or 4 times.

Another to add: When dropping something on the floor and knowing you have to somehow manuever to pick it up is enough to make you nearly cry.

When the janitor at school is really nice and kindly notices (not being snarky, but genuinely was sympathetic) the increased amount of pencils, red pens, post-it notes, paper clips, etc. that litter the floor of the teaching area just where YOU stand/sit/teach, because they *oops* drop during the course of the day and you just leave them there I told him finders keepers from now on!!

Great stuff! Glad to know I'm not the only one thinking ALL of these things!

So much to do in June, "IF I haven't had the baby yet!" This is the biggest caveat!

When you suddenly don't care about eating healthy because soon enough you are going to be losing weight and not gaining.

when you're SURE that the innocent question, "so, how are you doing/feeling?" is actually covert code for "why haven't you had that baby yet?!?" and you just want to scream at the poor asker that you'll let them know if and when you ever have the baby!

When a simple task takes 2 hours to accomplish:

Realize the dog needs water, take his bowl into the kitchen and put on the counter. See the new car seat that needs to be put away in baby's closet upstairs, go put it away. See all the trash in baby's room from new packaging from your Ikea trip today, clean up. DH calls you downstairs into the kitchen to look at something he found while cleaning the garage. See dog bowl on counter and move it next to the sink. Remember that you were cleaning baby's room and go upstairs to finish. Find knobs that you want to put on the dresser and take them to dh to ask how to do that. While carrying the drill upstairs, drop one of the knobs. Continue up the stairs to put the drill in the bedroom, and then go retrieve the knob. It fell into the kitchen, and it's 9pm and you are hungry. Place knob on counter and look in pantry. Pull out a box of annie's mac and cheese because it sounds delicious. You realize there are no clean pots so you are going to need to wash one. Walk to the sink and see dog bowl. Fill it up and finally put it back on the ground for your thirsty pet.

One of things on your before-baby list is to hang a clothesline. You scrape your belly on a tree in the process.

I have one wonderful husband and one wonderful little toddler boy!

You just described my days when not pregnant!

I made an eye appt. for myself for next week and added the caveat, "That is, I'll be here IF the baby isn't born yet..."

I stink. I've stunk since about a month ago. It's getting old. I seem to be the only one who notices it, but it's getting to me. I still have two weeks to go...

*sigh*
I barely had this at all in my first two pregnancies. This is number five. It's been hard and painful rolling over in bed for well over a month. I think my ligaments are just losing elasticity.

Besides the rolling over in bed thing because my ligaments are all loose and painful, last night my wrist kept popping out of place! Why do the ligaments in my wrist have to get loose in order to birth a child!

And I second the bathroom door thing - why do they all open inwards??
