Progress

You know the third trimester is right around the corner when...

... as soon as you have to pee, it's desperate... and when you actually DO pee, you get maybe two teaspoons out

... you start to feel as if there's a weight hanging off the front of your body

... pregnancy sex, which was so great a month or two ago, is now just a logistical nightmare

... you'd love nothing better than to lie on the couch all day eating bonbons

... the constant popping feeling in your belly makes you feel like a giant bag of Orville Reddenbacher's

... everytime you look in the mirror, you're shocked: "I know I'm pregnant, but I didn't realize I was THAT pregnant!"

... people ask when you're due and then act surprised when they hear it'll be another three months

... there is no comfortable position for sleeping

... the pregnancy-related sleep deprivation is making you feel desperately sad about the inevitable baby-related sleep deprivation

... people want to know if you've finished decorating the nursery... which becomes funny when you haven't even started

... no matter how fat you were before, people are now 100% sure that you're pregnant




Did I forget anything?

YESTERDAY WAS SOME KIND OF DELURKING DAY... so please, if you're reading this post just leave a message to say that you've read it... introduce yourself... I don't bite. And since I don't have tracking software, I'd really love to know just how many people are reading.

Barb said...

Hello! I'm a delurking!!!
I always read your blog. I actually get impatient when you take too long to update. Fortuneately for you, I understand that being pregnant and getting your house together gives you a good excuse to slack on the blog;)

I may not always have time to comment, but I always read!!!

Gil said...

All right, I'm not pregnant but I can tell you this; just being in this IF world makes me want to lie on the couch and eat bon-bons all day. Can I indulge now and then and pretend?? Come on! Puhlease?!

Um... yes, well, not delurking per se. I'm still here, and still reading; just quieter than usual as I contemplate my own path.

Sending hugs to you and yours for a wonderful long Thanksgiving weekend.

I think I commented once or twice, but just checking in to say hi. I have it worse- I'm pregnant with twins, which we're not making public knowledge, and when I tell people that I'm due in January they look at me like I must have gotten my due date wrong by three months or so.

Excited/ jealous for you and your house renovations! Sounds so exciting!

lori said...

sorta delurking...i read your blog often, but i think i've commented only once or twice.

yay for redecorating your home!

BOOOOO for sprained ankles and industrial-strength rug burn. welcome to the jelly trimester. you just gotta love that good 'ol relaxin (spelling? hormone that helps soften joints and stuff so that you can accommodate your guest).

wishing you bandaids and ankle braces (and a speedy recovery!),

Delurking! I really like your blog and am usually lurking around somewhere...

andrea_jennine said...

Thanks for your comment on my doctor decision post! This is my first visit to your blog, so I guess I'm not technically delurking. But I'll try to come back for a visit!

Chrissy said...

delurking - although is it called lurking if this is my first time here but I'm going thru all the archives? :D Best of luck with the baby!
