The end of pregnancy is never fun. As if being patient waiting to meet your little one isn’t hard enough, you are forced to endure your body being pushed to its absolute limit.
This Friday is my last OB appointment before I have my newest little bundle. While, in reality, I am nowhere near ready – bags need to be packed, house needs to be cleaned, and presents need to be wrapped, I am so over this “largest,” most uncomfortable part of pregnancy.
I’m tired of having to move the steering wheel in an awkward position so my belly will fit, I’m tired of picking out shirts based solely on the whether or not they will be long enough to cover my entire stomach, and I’m ready to be able to put my own shoes on without having to worry that I am going to hurt myself or the baby.
For me, the moment I realized I was huge came one day while dressing. As I pulled my shirt over my stomach I was shocked when I noticed my belly button had completely disappeared.
Other moms in their third trimester shared their “I realized I was huge” moments and they are all totally relatable.
