So you’re in your Third Trimester!
The final stretch!
Lets talk truths that are guaranteed to make you laugh.
No longer being able to put on your own shoes.
Never thought I’d see the day where I would get mad if my husband wasn’t home when I needed to put on my wedges. He must think I’m totally crazy but there have been times I’ve been in tears trying to do it on my own.
Being told on a daily basis, “You look like you’re ready to pop.”Yes I know, I have a giant belly sticking out. Trust me, I didn’t forget! I don’t need to be reminded daily. What’s even worse is seeing their reaction when you tell them you’ve got a little over a month to go!
The need to locate the nearest bathrooms everywhere you go.
I remember in college my friends would avoid going to the bathroom at a party because it was “breaking the seal”.. It was like, you go pee once.. you can’t stop going the whole night. Well they’d be so disappointed. I break the seal early in the day and find myself in the bathroom more times than I can count. I can’t stop peeing!!
Not being able to see any body part below your stomach.
I literally look like this guy above. Unless I’m looking at my reflection in a mirror, I can’t see anything below my stomach!
Chowing down on some Tums like they’re candy.
Oh the heartburn is unreal.. At least in my case. It usually wakes me up. There have even been a few times I’ve gotten up to google every home remedy I could find. I’ve found myself trying to sleep in complete sitting position, drinking milk and of course, chewing tums like crazy.
“Lets watch a movie.” Fast forward to 5 minutes…
If the clock strikes 9, I’m done for the night. It doesn’t even matter if it’s something I’ve been dying to watch. You can almost guarantee I’ll be asleep in minutes.
Realizing you no longer have ankle bones after a long day on your feet.
It probably has a lot to do with my job. Being on my feet all day has caused me to develop a new look. My feet become so swollen, they are unrecognizable. Ha! I now find myself sitting as I apply makeup to people’s faces. You do what you gotta do! I also am going to try to wear some compression socks to see if that makes a difference!
Getting nervous when you need to sneeze.
Ok, don’t let this GIF fool you. I’m not talking about “Number 2.” Thank God. I am talking about peeing a little when you sneeze. I’m not holding back in this blog post. Can you tell? Ha! Mama’s, if you’ve experienced this.. comment down below! On another note, have you seen this movie, Hall Pass?! My husband and I love it.
People looking at your belly before looking at your face.
I catch people looking at my stomach before making eye contact with me daily! Some people can’t stop staring. It’s the strangest thing. I just laugh now.
Sleeping through the night becomes a thing of the past.
So this is what is so bizarre.. I can fall asleep NO PROBLEM. Like I said above, come 9pm, my eyes are shut and I’m snoozing. However, I wake up several times in the middle of the night. It’s usually from hip pain and/or needed to pee.
Any other mama’s experienced these?!
