You know you’re Pregnant when…

At 3am this morning (Insomnia again) this post idea came to me. On my last post -> The truth about being pregnant I shared exactly how I feel at the moment. It felt good. Honestly I was scared to share everything but now I’ve realised I’m not the only one that’s going through this.

Yesterday, I welcomed the 3rd trimester. Can you believe it? The countdown begins and I don’t even have a name for my son yet! I woke up thinking today was going to be a good day even though I didn’t get much sleep last night.

I planned on taking more pregnancy pictures for the blog but I found myself struggling to get comfortable in whatever clothing I tried on. I looked in the mirror and my confidence shattered. So here I am, typing in my pjs trying to sit in a position that allows me to breathe better! I feel like my organs are squashed and I’m gasping for air. My “soccer” player is getting big, his bum and feet stick out are starting to stick out. He’s very active (which is a good thing) but at really odd times…

You know you’re Pregnant when…
First Pregnancy

So I did a post last year about You know you’re a Mom when…. I thought it would be fun to share something similar about pregnancy!

    OMG, I LOVE this article! It’s all so, so true. I ate like a horse non-stop! Being pregnant is both the best and worst experience imaginable.

  2. 2015-07-06 / 17:14

    My tummy was definitely my table and I had stains all over my maternity tops lol. My second child was 10 lb 7 oz, so I was NOT comfortable at all lol. Now he is almost 6’6″ but skinny as a rail!

  3. 2015-07-06 / 17:49

    Ha ha! So many of these were exactly my experience too! Especially the one about needing a nap before bedtime :-). It’s all worth it, but sometimes it can be a pain!

  4. 2015-07-06 / 18:15

    You are hilarious! This is SO perfect! I was convinced that my husband must be drugging me because I was SOOO tired all the time. When I got to the third trimester I was using my stomach as my table too!

    That’s a pretty comprehensive list. It is absolutely true, too. I remember when I was pregnant feeling every one of these and using my belly for a table.

    So I am due tomorrow and I am SOOOO anxious but I read this and It cheered me up… So tonight while I was using my tummy as a plate, I spilt a spoonful of food on my plate, laughed hysterically at my clumsiness then let out a poof and almost wet my pants all at once… On top of that I lost my mind when my cousin asked for chocolate omg pregnancy can be so embarrassing

  7. 2015-07-07 / 01:36

    I always enjoyed being pregnant. I took in all the bad and good and embraced it.

  8. 2015-07-07 / 03:28

    Why do strangers think they have the right to reach out and touch that tummy? And all those questions! This entire list is so true! I remember those days.

  9. 2015-07-07 / 03:38

    These are so funny! This definitely brought back some memories. Those cravings were crazy.

  10. 2015-07-07 / 04:53

    This post is REAL! I laughed way too many times, and man I do NOT miss being pregnant.

  11. 2015-07-07 / 07:07

    Awww…this is hilarious! While I only experienced pregnancy once, I loved every minute of it. And, yes, I obsessed over my own boobs more than my husband…lol

  12. 2015-07-07 / 12:01

    These are too funny and it brought back a lot of memories. With my two pregnancies, I never experienced morning sickness.

  13. 2015-07-07 / 12:51

    Haha! These are all great. I definitely have heartburn forever when I was pregnant. And I definitely loved my sweatpants.

  14. 2015-07-07 / 13:08

    Hahaha the ONLY times I’ve shaved in the last 3 months have been before a Drs appointment. No way am I putting that much effort in for the husband who did this to me in the first place 😛

    Also seriously miss having pretty painted toe nails. Thank heavens it’s winter. Yay Ugly UGGS all the way!!

  15. 2015-07-07 / 16:22

    These are seriously GREAT, I giggled at number 4. Thank you for sharing.

  16. 2015-07-07 / 17:49

    This is too funny! But I haven’t experienced all of those when I was pregnant though. I do remember feeling so sleepy all the time.

    This is an awesome list. I remember these days so well. My third pregnancy was rough. I had spd and it hurt so bad that I would cringe when I moved.

  18. 2015-07-07 / 19:30

    I’m not able to have kids, so I know zip about these other than what I have lived through with friends and family. Some of them really made me laugh.

  19. 2015-07-07 / 21:07

    What a cute article. I have had 3 so I feel your pain.

  20. 2015-07-07 / 21:13

    These are hilarious and I can totally relate. My “baby” is 3 years old but I remember it like it was yesterday. I didn’t have names for my kids (2 total) until they were born.

  21. 2015-07-07 / 21:22

    I had insomnia so bad during my preganancy and I would find myself cying because I was so tuired but couldmn’t sleep. I still have it but not as bad as when I was preggy. Hope you are feeling much better.

  22. 2015-07-07 / 21:44

    Oh pregnancy. Done is 6 times and and now on my 7th (no one knows yet, shhh!) and I will tell you the insomnia is a struggle. Even now super early on for me, GAH!

  23. 2015-07-07 / 22:28

    I’m ine of those weird people that wasn’t phased by pregnancy until I was almost ready to pop. The last few weeks…. Omg I wanted someone to shoot me lol

  24. 2015-07-07 / 23:37

    Some of these were funny. I remember going to McDonalds and they were out of fries. How in the world were they out of fries?!

  25. 2015-07-08 / 00:52

    OH goodness this is a great and funny article!!! Gave me quiet the chuckle! My boys are 4 and 6, but I recall it like it was yesterday!

  26. 2015-07-08 / 01:48

    This is hilarious because it is true!!! Have you put on two different shoes yet :)? Been there. 🙂 or have to have someone tie your shoes for you 🙂

  27. 2015-07-08 / 04:20

    OMG This was so funny, I couldn’t stop laughing as I read the entire list. It’s so much fun to look back on this but WHILE you are pregnant this isn’t so funny lol

  28. 2015-07-08 / 04:38

    It is hard to be pregnant in the summer. The third trimester was the worst – I was so swollen.

  29. 2015-07-08 / 05:01

    I only experienced nausea once or twice during my first pregnancy, but I believe I was sick throughout my second pregnancy! The summer heat even made it worse.

    I’ve never been pregnant but this list is hilarious!! I do feel soooo sorry for my friends that are big preggo over the summer months. That’s got to be rough!!

  31. 2015-07-08 / 07:07

    Hahahah these crack me up! I remember being like “no one told me this happens when you’re pregnant”.

  32. 2015-07-08 / 13:36

    These are funny! And true. Though I find myself nodding off at 9 (not quite 7). Must be an old lady thing here cuz I’m def. not pregnant. 😉

  33. 2015-07-08 / 16:00

    Ha! Oh my goodness, I was just telling my husband that I miss being pregnant. And now I remember why I really really dont!

  34. 2015-07-09 / 00:41

    Oh this is too funny! And so very true. I love the GIFs – especially the cat one.

  35. 2015-07-10 / 11:52

    Thanks for sharing your list that did make me laugh today! I don’t get people who want to rub pregnant women’s bellies! To me, that is just not okay! I bet you can even re-read your own post and find something to laugh about again!
