The February Due Date Club originally posted this thread and I couldn't resist.

You Know You're Pregnant When...

"You take a minute to decide if picking up whatever you have dropped is actually worth it (which on a bad day includes things like a cell phone or money )".

your children find it acceptable to pull your shirt up any time, any where, in front of anyone.

Its not your fault when you have gas... or are craving cookies (macaroni and cheese, taco salad, grilled cheese, you get it).

The last thing you do before going to bed is make sure there's a clear path to the bathroom so you can find your way there in the dark (3 or 4 times) without tripping.

You have to sit down to put pants on (I have started to loose my balance standing on one leg)

You have / have nearly fallen in the toilet numerous times while using the bathroom at night because you're too tired to notice your DH left the seat up AGAIN.

And you then blame your hormones when you yell at him about it.

You jump and yelp "ouch" for what everyone else thinks is not good reason but you are getting pummeled from the inside!

ein328 - you made me laugh with yours but also feel very thankful. My dh NEVER forgets to put the seat down and my 2 boys rarely forget anymore either. I know I am a lucky woman! (and some day their future wives will thank me!)

Peace and health, Jenny - Mama to my love 12/01, my lovely 7/04, and my beloved 10/06, and one angel. ****5****10****15***20****25****30****35***bellycast.gif40**

You can't just slide in-between cars in a crowded parking lot. Instead, you have to angle yourself about 45 degrees.

-Peeing in a cup at the doctor's office is now an Olympic event.

-You won't travel without snacks, water, and knowing the location of the nearest bathroom.

The security guard at the hospital where you work sees you waddling in at 5:45am wearing a T-shirt (because your scrub tops don't fit anymore) with your scrub pants and a bag with stuff in it (my lunch, water bottle, wallet, etc.), assumes it's pj's and an overnight bag, and asks if you need assistance to Labor and Delivery.

Yeah. This really happened to me yesterday morning. And yeah, that's how big my belly already is.

you know you're pregnant when you ribs feel like they are being ripped apart by an alien being. I'm afraid the little guy is going to start kicking me in the chin.

I'm only 25 weeks and I already cannot pick a side to sleep on and it goes on all night, both sides are miserable.

I rarely buy anything new, especially online, but I'm considering buying slip-on maryjanes and paying for rush delivery so I don't have to bend over to tie my shoes. I'm hunting down elastic tonight for all DD's shoes so she can slip them on and off herself.

Told DD today that she couldn't sit on my lap at the dinner table anymore because the chairs cannot accommodate 3 people.

Usually have a pretty tidy pubic area (sorry tmi) but have absolutely no idea what's happening in that region anymore.

...when your SO practically forces you out of the house to go get some cheese fries with his last remaining $5 bill until pay day because he knows you'll do nothing but talk about cheese fries until you finally get to eat some.

...or is that just me??

...the lady at the gas station finds out when you are due and assures you there must be 3 babies in there.

...you go from not having to pee to trying your best not to pee in your pants because the baby moved.

...people in public randomly smile at you and your belly and you start getting treated more courteously than normal.

...find it to be no problem at all to lay on the ground in your office at work during the day to "stretch".

...come home and immediately go to the couch to rest while dp cooks dinner (very atypical in our house)

...turn on the faucet for a bath, get in and cozy and have to call dd or dp to come and turn the water off because you have been trying to get up to turn it off and cannot manage and worry that it will overflow. Subsequently also need dp to help you to get out of the tub shortly thereafter!

...trip on the dog 3 times a night on route to the bathroom

...cashiers and bank tellers begin to give you wary looks as if they think you will spontaneously burst into labor while they're waiting on you.

...when it's time to get out of bed, you don't just get up - you have to come up with a five-step plan involving rolling over, adjusting your legs, rolling again, adjusting your arms, and pushing yourself up.

...you can't move without grunting.

Your toddler's newest game is to lie down all over the place and say "I'm just going to lie down for a minute..."
