Here I am, 36 weeks and 5 days pregnant. If the date on the calendar wasn’t enough, I have every symptom that indicates I’m almost there. Each of which could mean labor is imminent, or 3-4 weeks away. Don’t you love how ambiguous all pregnancy symptoms are, beginning with the earliest ones at conception? It could mean this…or it could mean nothing at all. They’re all like that!
Because I’m in this third trimester stage of constant discomfort and “what was that?!” all the time, I tend to Google things. A lot. Too much, really…I need to chill out. Anyway, while perusing the web for information, I often come across message boards. The subject lines of these third trimester Moms-to-be are hysterical. Here are a few of my favorite ones. If you’re pregnant yourself, or have been pregnant before…you will fully appreciate these.
I think my water broke but I was in the shower so I can’t tell, help!
Is this my mucous plug? (unfortunately a picture was attached – ew)
I’m Group B Strep+, but I hear that putting a peeled garlic clove up there with some yogurt will protect my baby and is better than antibiotics. Does it have to be plain yogurt? I only have strawberry-banana.
Bringing a boom box so that I can play ‘Final Countdown’ as I walk into the maternity ward.
My belly is NOT public property!
A little leakage :/
Grandparent drama over visiting after baby is born. Help!
Addicted to Tums.
I’m 1cm dilated and 50% effaced, is that good? Response from message board: I was 6cm dilated and 100% effaced for six weeks, it doesn’t mean anything!
Anyone else want to punch their hubs in the face?
My lady parts are breaking! (pelvic pain.)
Isn’t the last few weeks of pregnancy such a beautiful time?
