I am three weeks past the 1/2 way mark right now...

1) waddling is now part of your everyday


2) salsa, salsa, salsa


3) the nursery can't go up fast enough and the fact that it's NOT going up fast enough sends you into a whirl of fears, just KNOWING that your child is going to have to sleep on the floor for the first 2 weeks he's home...In all actuality, you still have 4 months, you have the crib and you are putting it up within the next week


4) Your butt, stomach, boobs, sides...oh...not to mention thighs, legs...every part of your body is now suseptible to stretch marks and that terrifies you morbidly! Palmer's Cocoa Butter promises "no stretch marks" but let's face it...your body has already exploded into astronomical proportions...what's stretch marks but war wounds really? You should have invested in Palmer's when you even had the inkling of creating a new life in your body!!


5) Seeing your feet was soooooo last Winter


6) If and when you find something that actually fits you...you suddenly revert into a 9000 lb whale...nothing feels right, your stomach looks too round...your legs too chicken like...in short you feel as though you are a spaghetti noodle with a meatball shoved in the center.


7) on a brighter side...you are proud of your now HUGE tummy and you want to show it off at every chance you get, although you fear the dreaded "OMG, how far along are you??" "are you having just ONE?" "can I touch it?" If you haven't experienced this little "gem" good luck... Exploding into a raging, crying, flailing preggo is not the answer... just answer back "No, I am having triplets" go along with this...you probably will never see them again anyway...especially if they just asked those idiotic questions or had the idea you were going to willingly allow a total stranger to caress your tummy and child.


8. Bending over + you = not happening...period


9) the idea of sex is alluring...but in reality, the thought of sex tires you...


10) If the food you are eating (salsa...mmmm) doesn't fall out of your mouth and hit your inflated chest...at least there is a big round shelf to catch it...plus side if you have white carpet or if you are a messy eater


11) You are nesting like no other, but you get going and unlike the energizer bunny, you don't keep going... You start with the bathroom and end in the same bathroom, 1/2 finished, 6 hours later, lying on the floor, hoping the hubby will come and rescue you...because, let's face it, you can't get up.


12) Feet get fat and more than likely will stay fat. deal with it


13) Your child, now the size of a spaghetti squash (seriously, I don't know why they use food to describe the size of your baby...squash doesn't even sound good) has been using your kidneys, bladder, lungs, ribs, stomach, leaderhosen... as punching bags... every square inch of your inards are his new gym and he is working out double time


14) Your world revolves around "what's for dinner" once hubby's figure it out, have it on the table waiting when you get home, just the way you want, maybe some candlelight and a foot massage, you (and he) will be happier.


15) once you master the "sneeze and pee", "puke and pee", "move and pee" "laugh and pee", "look and pee", "shift and pee" or any other variation you are officially 1/2 way there!

Congrats!

I'm only 22 weeks and 4 days now but I have been getting most of what you said through the whole pregnancy! Im getting really sick of the "can I touch it?" question. It's still my body, I don't like to be touched by bloody strangers! Oh and the "are you sure there is only one in there?" question, I laugh at them now and go, well there are also my organs and the fluid bub floats in, oh and there has to be room for him to move! Or i just say, atleast I have a reason for being big, whats your excuse, I know it's nasty but I'm sick of people sayng I must be fat when I say there is only one! I can't wait to see my boy's lil face! 17weeks and 3 days to go! but i'm not counting lol

Love EM

I know it's so terrible how they can't empathize with us just for a little bit.
So we have to to forget about them and do whatever is best for the baby.
