Third trimester blues

        Here I am with baby three one year ago.  I am 9 months +1 and will be meeting my little guy 2 days later.  If you’re approaching the end of your pregnancy you might find this familiar.
9 months and 1 day pregnant!
9 months and 1 day pregnant!
      So, is the baby here yet?  Ugh! Here we go again.  Lets face it, when you get close to the end of your pregnancy, things are getting, lets say difficult.  You may feel tired all the time.  You dread dropping something for fear of having to actually maneuver to retrieve it.  You are always in the bathroom to pee, but forget about going poo.  You eat, you get heartburn.  You eat a little and get full, starving thirty minutes later.  Walking is good for you but man does your feet, and/or back hurt.  Then you hear those, lets call it what it is, obnoxious questions.
      Oh, the baby isn’t here yet?  (Insert sarcastic reply)
      How big is the baby now, he/she looks big?  {Insert rude comeback question, in your head of course or better yet out loud)
      Are you carrying twins?  {Use the “are you serious” facial expression of choice here}
      Hang in there girl!
      Sleep.
      Eat well and as best you can.
      Move your body how you want as often as you can.
      Did I mention sleep!
      Last, but not least, those annoying comments, don’t even dignify them.  You are beautiful, you are not too big or too small, your baby is going to come when she is ready.  Keep you head and feet up and enjoy your beautiful pregnant you!!
