Pregnant Woman are CRAZY

This is what I know about being pregnant. Not only does this little being take over your belly, body and mind, it takes over the rest of what used to be your normal life.It makes this beer lover tolerate N/A Beer

Pregnant women are CLUMSY. We're always dropping things. At this stage of pregnancy it's a double whammy because bending over is another adventure. I'm not ashamed to admit that I've resorted to using my feet to pushing items together into a pile so I only have to bend over once.

Pregnant women lose their MINDS. I have the memory of a goldfish. I can't tell you how many times I've assumed I told Nick something but in fact it was just in my head. I never actually went audible with it. Now I have to ask, "Did I say this out loud or was it just in my head?"

Pregnant women are EMOTIONAL. I swear I've cried during a certain Folgers commercial every time I've seen it. I've seen it at least 20 times and it's not THAT sappy. I get weepy during the Kelly Clarkson song, "My Life Would Suck Without You" Well- it would. I am misty eyed watching Bennet and Scout play together. I just about lose it when they both want to dance around the living room with me- one little hand in each of mine.

Pregnant women are OBSESSIVE. I've become every woman that irks me. Constantly thinking about going into labor. Oh- what kind of cramp was that? Was that a contraction? Who we would call if it's 3 a.m? What the date means? Blah blah blah. Oh- and I have some weird paranoia about running out of milk. If we have less than 3 gallons in the fridge I get all mental. As if there aren't stores within a mile that carry milk. Right now I have 3 gallons of 1%, a 1/2gallon of Skim, 2 cartons of OJ, Apple Juice AND a gallon of chocolate milk. MOO!!
But most importantly-
Pregnant women are CRAZY! I'm not sure if it's because this is my 3rd baby or what, but this pregnancy has flown by. All of a sudden we're down to mere days. For weeks I've been saying "I'm ready- bring on baby" but now I'm realizing that I'll soon have a newborn. I'll be a mom of 3. Dealing with all those wonderfully exciting and exhausting things associated with having a baby. Middle of the night feedings. Juggling requests from multiple kids at the same time. Trying to keep 3 names straight. Now all of a sudden I'm freaking out a little bit. :) See- CRAZY!
