A trip to the grocery store tires you out so you have no desire to cook the food you just bought once you get home.

 

Relatives (who think they are funny) post comments about your size on FB when you post belly pics. irked.gif

 

You start silly threads in the DDC to distract yourself from all the babies being born! blush.gif

so true with the grocery store!  I didn't even make it there today b/c I was too tired in the rainy gloom after doing a bunch of laundry. 

Plus I can't go when I'm hungry or I'll spend a fortune.

 

you know you're 9 months pregnant when you're walking out in public and have to stop every so often due to "ice pick vagina."  LOL  I just heard people calling those cervical twinges that the other day & I swear that's exactly what they've been feeling like!

HAHAHA "Ice Pick Vagina"  -- that's hilarious!

 

I'm soo there with the grocery thing.  I go shopping, get home, and ask my husband what he's now going to go out and buy me for dinner -- lol.

 

You know you're 9 months pregnant when you randomly grunt when you move around, get up from sitting down, change positions, etc.  I swear I sound like some strange wild animal or something.

 

When you walk by your bathroom and figure you might as well just go pee since you're probably going to have to within the next 15 minutes anyway.

Ice pick vagina, love it!!!!! The term, not the crazy feeling it describes.

The dog gives you a concerned look as you're grunting and moaning trying to get off the couch after you decided to lay down.

Ha ice pick vagina!  Too funny, only because I can commiserate though:(

 

You know you're 9 months pregnant when - you lay in bed with a pillow under your head, one behind your back, one between your legs and one under your belly, and you still aren't comfortable enough to get to sleep!

Almost 10 months pregnant.. BUT

  • You never answer your phone unless it's your husband. You're so tired of the "looky-loo" have you had the baby yet phonecalls. 
  • You start to google exactly how long you could theoretically be pregnant. And see that people rarely go past 43 weeks. That's awful. But do-able.

I 'third' the whole stopping in while passing the bathroom thing--- with a giggle... and the strange wild animal grunts when changing positions, beljur!

 

You know you're 9,10,1000 months pregnant when...

 

you scan the inernet for birth stories and videos and cry at Every Single One.

 

All day and night you're cataloging the discomforts and never the pleasures of pregnancy, but somehow, when you manage to find the courage/audacity/drive to dtd, your sweetie calls you a superhero and you actually feel like one!

LOL! I so notice this now. I worked full time when pregnant with the other 3, so I had to conduct myself "professionally" hee hee. So I kept the moaning, grunting to myself. This time around, I swear I make some sort of noise every time I move!

... when your "stance" could get you arrested in a public bathroom

 

... when you look at your biggest jeans and say- nah, those are too tight

 

... when it's easier to slide your feet then to pick them up

 

... when it takes you 3 hours to grocery shop... at one store

 

... when you drive three towns away to get lunch, and that it what you did for the morning

 

... when you contemplate leaving a change of pants in the car, "just in case" your water breaks

All of the above apply to me, but this one is SO me right now! I feel like it's the movie Groundhog's Day. I wake up and think "Really, I'm still pregnant?!. I'm 4 days past EDD, which is when ds2 was born. I really thought I'd have this one by NOW!

Yep... happened to me yesterday.

 

... when you take the elevator one floor at the bookstore while the rest of the family climbs the stairs.

 

... when you screen your home phone calls for everyone except your homebirth helpers and the midwives.

 

... when you dig into the box of "giveaway" maternity clothes donated by your SIL and find the ones that were "too big for you".  They fit perfectly.

When you're throwing up (again) and can't get up from the toilet.  And then you throw up again from crying so hard.

From this morning:

...when your toddler spills something on shirt and you let it dry to see if it really needs changing because putting a fresh shirt on him would mean going up the stairs.

...also you decide that red socks aren't that awful with a maroon shirt because another color of socks also require a trip upstairs.

...when you begin to think that having a newborn can't possibly leave you as exhausted as you are right now. (Oh, I really hope I don't end up eating those words!!!)

This, except with online chat also.  Last pregnancy SIL went crazy checking in on me -- I just looked back at my archives, and she IMed me to ask if I was in labor 20 times starting the day before my due date until I was finally in labor 13 days later.

 

 

"... when you dig into the box of "giveaway" maternity clothes donated by your SIL and find the ones that were "too big for you".  They fit perfectly."

 

And this.  (Except I didn't save all the clothes that were "too big" so I had to buy a couple pairs of jeans to get me through the next few weeks.  *sigh*)  I also admit to giving dh shirts for Christmas so he'd have enough for me to borrow. blush.gif

Yep for the clothes for me too.  I actually don't think they make maternity clothes that would fit me at this point.  I am living (when not at work) in sweatpants that are 2-3 sizes too big and held up (sort of) with a drawstring, and my DH's XL shirts.

 

... when you stop while scanning the dial on a country station, and can only listen to one or two songs, during which you cry the entire time.

 

... when your partner decides it is easier to just avoid you than deal with your extreme moodiness.

 

... when you have no room left in your freezer for anymore frozen lasagnas, casseroles, soups, or chilis.
