I noticed this past week that I have been having trouble with my bra straps. One bra in particular (I only have 2 I can wear atm) was drivng me crazy with the straps falling off my shoulders every time I turned around. Then, it dawned on me... My belly has grow so much lately, my boobs are now starting to rest on it (at least the underneath part where my underwire lays) and that has been making the straps go slack and fall off my shoulders. How silly is that?
Haha! The joys of pregnancy. I was just having a talk with my hubby about ALL the CHANGES that take place in such a short amount of time, no wonder I'm more crabby than normal!
My biggest problem right now...and I do mean biggest...is that the curve of my rear nearly matches the curve of my tummy! It's where I store all that extra fat for the breast milk! Happens every time, so at least I'm not in shock like I was with baby #1.
I'm doing fine physically, but mentally is another story. I feel slow and foggy all the time. It's so darn hard to concentrate! Anyone else have terrible pregnancy brain?

Ugh, I feel weird and super low-blood-sugar-y this morning. Really trying to shake it...so foggy, and I do NOT have time to be foggy (a ton to do at work in the next 8 weeks...)
about the boob/belly problem, Wendy! This kiddo is still so low I'm not getting too much of that, although enough to be annoyed by it when I sit in certain positions (extra sweaty!)
Ssssooooo much happens doesn't it. The boobs, the belly, the bum, the brain FFFAAARRRRR OOOUUTTT!
I can't seem to make it past lunch time without needing a sleep. I'm really feeling it this pregnancy. I've been really hormonal lately. And so angry, all the time. Poor Miller dropped his tooth brush the other day and I flipped! Poor thing. I went to the chemist after dropping them off to see if there was anything herbal I could take. Not much apparently. I bawled my eyes out there too. The thing I'm finding hard is having no control over my emotions. If it was something I could do something about, then I'd be ok, but because it just happens I really fall hard with it. The past few days have been better though, so hopefully I'm over that wave.
Sorry about that book, was nice to get it out though.

Baby #3 due Oct 1st!!
Ugh, that sounds worse than a physical complaint by far! One of my good friends (far away, unfortunately) is about six weeks behind me in her second pregnancy and sounds like she's having a very similar experience...she said her poor husband was googling "Why does my pregnant wife have PMS" lol...(((hugs))) I hope things even out for you soon...or if not, at least that you feel better once baby is out here in the world and not messing quite so much with your system!
I know I tend to have less patience with DD1 on days that I am tired, feeling stretched (literally, in the belly). She is very determined and gets these ideas to try something new immediately (a lot of times, she is just wanting to help out) and sometimes I just don't have the patience to clean up the mess that is often the result of her persistence. I am having to watch how I talk with her at those times more than with the other two. My friend and I were just talking this morning about the importance of remaining in control with our tone of voice around the kids. How can we expect them to have self-control when we, as adults, don't? I try to be quick to apologize and talk about even Mamas make mistakes at times like that.
