You Know You’re Very Pregnant When…

Leave a comment

Facebook friends and those that read our family blog will have ready many of these already, but I thought I’d post here as well.

You know you’re very pregnant when…

…your husband has to help you get your socks and shoes on b/c you can’t reach your feet (bring back flip flop weather!).

…the maternity clothes start to get too small in the belly.

…the lady that makes your coffee and that you see at least a couple times a week and has your drink memorized says upon seeing you for the first time this week, “Wow, that baby is getting big.”

…people at the local street festival stop in their tracks to say “You look like you were ready to pop yesterday!” and then you have to explain that you in fact have a few more weeks to go.

…people stop making eye contact, instead approaching you with eyes firmly affixed on your massive belly and the greeting, “Hi. Has your baby dropped yet?”

…you lose your pen, look everywhere around you knowing you just had it, then stand up and see it fall out from under your big baby belly. Beware: This same thing can happen with cell phones, small toys and towards the end, the occasional book.

I'm a stay-at-home homebirthing, VBACing, breastfeeding mama, advocate and sometimes artist, sometimes web designer. We are located on the East Coast (but long for the West Coast) where we try to live simply, playing with natural toys, eating organic, vegetarian foods and using our imaginations and creativity as much as possible. I knit and I'm in the process of learning to sew so I can make (or at least attempt to make) many of the items we need and use and want to surround us.
