Your back aches. Your feet look like water balloons and/or sausages. You can’t sleep, you have to pee ALL the time, and your baby’s foot in your ribs is making breathing a challenge. Indeed, it’s time to get this baby out! Consider these other 10 signs you are ready to give birth.
You cannot properly groom yourself anymore. Making your bikini area look presentable is really little more than a guessing game at this point because you can’t see it past your big belly!
Even your two year old asks if you need a Tums. Antacid is such a big part of your daily routine, your small kids tell you to pop one when you grimace after dinner.
Saturday night is eating Cheetos on the couch. You are too tired to do anything else. Hmm, how would Cheetos taste with whipped cream?
Nesting has morphed into obsessing. You have folded, refolded, organized, and reorganized your newborn clothes. Should the onesies go in the same drawer as the hats or the socks? Time to ask your Facebook friends.
Strangers give you sympathetic looks. At the grocery store people have stopped smiling at your belly and started shaking their heads in wonder. “How can she make it from the produce aisle to the dairy case?”
Friends can’t believe you are still pregnant. At preschool pick-up, another mom asks “Gosh, when are you due?”
Walking has turned into waddling. You look like a duck crossed with a hippo and feel more like an elderly dump truck.
Yoga pants are your uniform. Forget trying to squeeze into cute maternity outfits anymore. You’re only wearing yoga pants because a bathrobe is not appropriate attire for the mall.
You have considered sleeping in the bathroom. Why bother getting back into bed when you know you will have to get up in a minute to pee again? A bathmat can’t be that uncomfortable can it?
You know the number of minutes until your due date. Counting down months and weeks has turned into days and even hours. Only four more lunches until you are due to give birth!
Amazingly, as soon as you meet your baby all 10 signs you are ready to give birth will melt into obscurity. You would go through every discomfort and humiliation all over again for your new bundle of joy.
How did you know you’d had enough of being pregnant?
