- When you quit your job and relish being able to sleep in and your daughter wakes up at 530 to PLAY. ~Grumble~ Granted she did get some cuddle time with daddy so I guess it's not all bad. Looks like a rest in my plans for today.

Also, when the 37th coworker at work makes fun of your waddle.

When it takes ten full minutes of grunting, rolling and clawing at the sheets just to roll over in bed.

When you just realized that you have horrible heartburn.. from drinking a glass of water.

When you just don't have the energy to get the day to day things done and you just want to lay down but can't because these things need to get done!

All of the above. My gosh what I wouldnt do for some energy, some sleep, a little agility and a clean house. I feel like a turtle that has been flipped over on its back. So difficult to be so physically unable to do anything.

But I think despite loving my beautiful belly. I can't wait to DTD without all the current awkwardness.

I just don't like the uncertainty! Wondering when it's going to be it and where you're going to be! And if I'll be ready!

All the above especially dtd! I can't wait for it not to be strange! And for things to look 'normal' there. I can't wait to shave my legs, and bikini area without struggling and giving up! ( tho it could be party because of our new house, no tubs with showers- i even put a small stool in the tiny corner shower to help hold my leg up lo)
NO more peeing in a cup! Talk about adding insult to injury! I you can't even see there and they give you a tiny cup to aim into!

Oh gosh, there's a ton! lol

-Maternity clothes getting too SMALL! My shirts are too small all of a sudden and barely cover my stomach. I can only wear high panel pants now or my belly hangs out.

-Not being able to even roll over in bed without being uncomfortable

-Baby kicks that are so hard and in your ribs that it legitimately hurts and leaves you feeling bruised all day

-Thinking EVERYTHING is a sign! Driving myself nuts

Everyone and their mom are now making comments about whether she's here yet. Seriously, I'll tell you. F off. I don't need you to tell me that I must be uncomfortable or that she should be here by now.

Thank you, Jaidynsmum, for the amazing siggy

Yes, yes, to all.

I also want to be able to get down on the floor to do something and then be able to get up under my own power!

Turtle on its back is so true!

Oh, and the stretch marks can stop itching any time now.

Getting up in the middle of the night to pee and as soon as I lay back down I have to get back up to pee again.

I think one of the biggest ones, tho, are the comments people make. People still make the "are you having twins?" Comments. The last person to ask me that I said "no..I'm just fat".

The constant comments about how "small" I am. It's giving me a complex.

The horrible heartburn and acid reflux from eating foods that shouldn't cause any issues, like grapes!

The lack of energy is so frustrating. It's taking so much effort to keep up with chores so things aren't a complete disaster when baby comes. And I want a nap around 2/3pm everyday and most times that just isn't possible with my little boys, so I'm like a zombie for an hour or so until I snap out of it.
I am tired of swollen, achy feet. Shopping isn't fun and the dinner/dish routine requires breaks for sitting on a stool.
My biggest complaint though is sleep . Laying down is so painful with sciatic and pelvic pain. There is no way to lie that isn't killing my left side. And then the getting up and down to pee thing just makes me even more miserable at night.

Just the lack of some decent sleep, my hips are sore from only being able to sleep on my sides, it takes a month to roll from one side to the other and I need to pee every 2 hours.

Ditto to all the above and I would like to be able to take a shower without having to sit on the side of the tub or afterward lotioning and putting clothes on then feeling so winded like I just ran up a flight of stairs 10 times

****Thank you*Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy****

I think you've all got it covered! So much to do but a lack of energy, compounded by not being able to get a decent night's sleep. The annoying mixture of rotating hunger, nausea, and heartburn. Just not knowing when she'll be here.

I'm still not in a big hurry to be done yet, but still...
