You get super excited over any hint of intestinal distress because maybe, just MAYBE it's one of those infamous "signs of impending labor."

Or probably I just ate like crap yesterday.

Sigh.

When you need help putting on your shoes

When it starts sounding almost desirable to have a preterm baby

When you sneeze and you're not sure if you just peed, leaked some amniotic fluid, or are losing pieces of mucus plug, but are pretty sure you need to change your underwear again

When you have seriously considered getting a chamber pot instead of having to drag yourself to the bathroom fourteen times overnight

When everyone around you is wearing jackets and scarves and hats and you're comfortable in a tee shirt

When it feels like your stomach is the size of a thimble and more than a few bites of food at a time is becoming simply impossible

Your husband isn't even phased by the words "mucous plug" anymore.

Going up and down the stairs makes you want to cry.

Your toddler knows you'll play/read whatever she wants as long as you can lay on the floor and not have to sit up.

You have to cajole your husband into cutting your toenails because you can't reach them yourself with any sort of accuracy.

When you try to go for a walk to keep the swelling down in your feet, but your tennis shoes don't fit due to said swelling.

Your husband looks at the clock every. single. time you touch your bump.

You threaten said husband with removal of his eyeballs if you catch him looking at the clock again.
