I am a member of the August 2010 birth board/group on Baby Center. Because I am due at the end of the month I am a few weeks behind some of the other women on there, but we are now all in our 3rd trimester. Post after post on there are about how uncomfortable they are right now and I realized how lucky I am! Being that I started out fluffy I am used to carrying extra weight around. One complained because she could no longer see her feet. Heck, I haven't seen mine in years! Ever heard of a full length mirror? And someone complained because they couldn't touch their toes. Now really, why do you need to touch your toes? What does that accomplish?? Is it to paint them? I quit buying my own polish a long time ago and now let the local nail salon take care of that for me. And they do a fine job. I think. I can't see them so what do I know?!?!
I can still get out of bed easily. Been doin' it for years. I can roll over fine. When you are round it is pretty easy to roll. I can even sleep on my stomach. Not flat on it, but kind of on the side kind of on the front. When something falls to the floor, I squat. Not new to me. My belly was big before so my center was off before, so that hasn't changed. Stretch marks don't scare me. Been there, done that! Can't see your hoo-ha? Do you really want to?? I got a mirror and peeked the other day. Believe me when I say that you aren't missing anything. I swear it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie now! It will give you nightmares!!! My hubby calls mine Na-Nu Na-Nu. From Mork & Mindy. Because they are aliens. Get it? Yeah, he is hilarious. Boobs sagging?? Don't wanna hear it! Mine haven't been perky since I took off the training bra. And until they touch my knees I won't complain.
The only thing that has really changed for me is that now I try to look bigger, not smaller. So all in all, being fluffy is not so bad when you are pregnant. Now after the baby is born is a different story!
