You know your belly is getting bigger when?

You are cleaning house and the pregnant belly is too much to bend forward to get it, it hurts for you to bend sideways and scissor cross your legs to pick it up and you'd much rather kick the damn thing under the couch and forget about it.

23 weeks along and the belly is impeding my daily activities.

  • LOL! And:
    When you use you belly as a tabletop for your plate.

    When you have to ask someone else to tie your shoe laces.

    When you give up on keeping things tidy "down there" for fear of razor nicks.

  • I knew my belly was big with my 1st when my 2 1/2 year old little sister came in the bathroom when I was getting out of the shower and said "Eww sissy, you need to shave your pee pee hair" I was like "Becca sissy cant even see her pee pee". I'm 19 weeks with my second and luckily my belly hasnt got in the way YET lol But I look foward to using it as a table at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner lol

  • when:
    - you go out to eat and can no longer sit in a booth.
    -your lap disappears and there is no room for the older kids to sit and read bedtime stories
    -you try and get out the car in a crowded parking lot and can't fit between your car and the one next door, be it just walking past or can't even get door open enough to fit your belly/body through.
