Your assistance is requested

I've decided to write a book, or a leaflet, or something of that sort. After being pregnant with Booderbean and now Baby K 2.0 I have encountered many moments where i feel "i should write this down" There are tons of pregnancy advice books out there ranging from various topics yet I haven't found one that just hits the nail on the head in such a way that I want to. The title of my book will be "You Know Your Are Pregnant When..." (more or less a mock off of Jeff Foxworthy).

My good friend Kasey was with me through the entire pregnancy (even showed up for the induction at 6am!) with me last time and shared in many of the not so good, embarrassing, difficult, fun, emotional times of this pregnant lady while Military Man was off serving our country far far away. She said many times that i just needed to write a book about it.

So i will be starting with my latest "moments" below (oh and all of my moments are true happenings!), and would LOVE to have all of you share your "You Know You Are Pregnant When..." moments.
Who knows if this will actually ever get published, but it will be fun to compile!
You Know You Are Pregnant When...
1. You leave work for the day at 5:00 p.m. armed with a baggie of grapes in one hand, and a leftover piece of pizza from lunch in the other. Because Lord knows you must eat ever hour or you just might starve!
2. Your toddler comments on mommies latest purchase of maternity underwear and hollers to daddy "Look at mommies underwear, DADDY THEY ARE HUGE!!!". all this with a look of shock on his face.
3. You are trying to carry on a very important conversation with a coworker and get interrupted by a phone call and literally have no clue what you were even talking about before the phone rang.
4. Your drive home from work every day is a constant struggle just to stay awake, the exhaustion is unbearable.

HAHA totally cracking up right now! These are great. You should totally write a book I'll think of a few to add to your list! Remember Military Man's "Carter just rode it out"...ha ha makes me laugh every time!

its crazy the second time around, isn't it? because you actually have a child (or children) to care for when you get home, you can't just collapse on the couch for the rest of the night.

i'm currently undergoing "i have no brain so there's no use talking to me, because i certainly can't remember this for later or carry out the request you've made."
