You know you're in the last weeks of pregnancy when...

-you contemplate getting off the couch/out of bed, and it takes some serious effort to roll yourself that way...

-not even your biggest pregnancy shirt covers your belly the whole way anymore!

-eating breakfast is a good reason to take a nap (as is showering, or getting dressed or doing the dishes...pretty much anything is a good reason to take a nap!)

What'cha got?

... putting on underwear and pants is such a hassle that half the time I just skip it and wear my old lady zipper fleece robe to avoid it (when I can be at home).

Putting on panties is a chore, and getting out of bed I'm limping, because my hips are SOO sore.
I'm either crying or yelling. Or thinking about icecream ( which I don't eat at all, it makes me sick. I just think about it).
Oh but this time I don't have linea negra, which I think is interesting.

Panting while I walk to the mailbox.

Finding that my left foot is beautifully painted while my right is smudged due to overextending myself over my buldging middle section.

Ensuring that with each shower, I am shaving all my necessary parts to create a comfortable atmosphere for doctor, baby, and myself!

Ha ha! Oh yes... I did some major mirror/counter top acrobatics today with my DH's clippers cleaning things up for the first time in over 2 mos! Now I'm more bare than I'd like to be, but, a least I don't have to worry about it for a while again Geez.

When people start offering you food constantly and you say no thank you more than yes please because there just isn't room in your belly for both the baby and nourishment!

---feeling accomplished when only doing a semi good job at maintaining the lawn department, and wearing pants to skip a good day or so on shaving legs. i know maintaining the lawn area hasn't been easy lately but always feel good when i can accomplish both the lawn area and the legs. lol

Haha!!!!

OK - love the "nap" one Mara- true true.

Every work appointment I accept or email I send ends in "if I haven't gone into labor."

Ha! I end my emails with "pending maternity leave" as well, glad to hear I'm not the only one Smile

Getting up to eat numerous times because I can only fit a few bites in at each meal
Having a pee feeling and then only letting a couple drops out...then repeat all day long

Haha... I totally gave up on any kind of hair maintenance. I can shave the lower half of my legs maybe once per week and that's good enough for me. Coming from a nursing standpoint, there are MUCH worse things they have seen than a little extra hair... at least that's what I tell myself.

--people look horrified when you tell them that no, you are not overdue.

And, I haven't seen "down there" for a really long time, so I'm sure it's a beast! I manage to shave my legs once a week, but that's to save myself embarrassment at the doctor's office. Haha!

Oh, Jen! I laughed hard when I read "BEAST"...I can't see mine either...It has become norm to get rid of the "beast" when showering...so, my razor and hand knows what to do! Luckily, I am pretty darn good at it. I can imagine some of the "stuff" that the doc sees. When I used to get my paps done, I would tell the doctor prior, "Um, can we do dinner first?" Or... "Don't get lost in all that"....when he was done I would simply remark, "I feel like I need a cigarette now"...keeps the nerves calm for both myself and the doctor (just in case).

----when customers who genuinely have every right to lose it on you for a screwed up order or slow service doesn't lose it on you. instead of losing it, are overly nice.

i had this twice today. i had a crew person screw up an order and anticipated getting screamed at and i swear as soon as the customer saw the belly, boom automatically nice and apologized to me.

the second, i took forever gathering a 45 dollar order and the customer was really polite, which typically not. i was shocked, but knew it had to be because of the belly lol

--- I nudged my DH awake at 430 am to go get me a drink from the kitchen because its downstairs and walking down the stairs sounded like more work thannut was worth.

-- you get alittle sad when your OB tells you that they are fairly certain they will see you the next week, and all you can thinking is how you hope you see them, but in the hospital delivering a baby
