... no less than five random strangers each day ask when your due date. Not for another 8 weeks, but thanks for asking.
When you sit on the couch contemplating how badly you really have to go to the bathroom and if it's worth it because getting off the couch is a rocking, back-swinging ordeal.
When you start to wish every chair and sofa came with an ejector seat.
When you drop things on the floor and suddenly realize what a T-rex must feel like.
When you want to punch people in the face for asking how you are feeling. (Because seriously - who in their right minds doesn't want people to care about them?)
When the thought of the olympic-level movements that involve putting pants on pisses you off.
When you're shopping and people take extra wide paths to get around you like you're big or something.

When you drop something and your whole body just slouches with disappointment. When switching sides in bed is a 3-4 minute ordeal requiring a 7 point turn. When you are trying to get something off the bottom shelf of the above cabinets but you have to turn to the side a little and reach with all your might (this might just be a 5'3" pregnant person's problem). When the grocery store cashier doesn't even ask but gets a courtesy clerk to help you to your car. You used to car about the dog not getting people food that drops on the floor but now she's living it up b/c there's no way I'm picking it up. When you think "I can go one more day without shaving or washing my hair" because you're too exhausted to stay in the shower one more minute. When you couldn't care less about the electric bill... the a/c will run all freaking day. When you actually wake up in the middle of the night not only to pee a bazillion times but because you're hungry. I actually had hunger wake me up and couldn't go back to sleep until I ate... at 3am. When you go to a restaurant and analyze the booths to see if the table will move a little to make room for the belly and if it is stationary, you have to opt for a non-booth table (this is just the last week or two). 3.5 weeks until delivery! We can do this!!!
When you work in a professional atmosphere and everyone has just accepted yoga pants (or as DH calls them 'stretchy pants') as the office norm for you, unless you have a client, then you can expect to be presentable for only those hours with stretchy pants on hand for meetings closure.
@MrsLaLaBug, also when you stand like a man. had dh take my weekly update this week and was appalled when i saw them! i looked like i was a large football player ready to take my stance but with bad posture. no bueno
- When you start getting weekly pedicures just for the foot rub.- When you realize you have actually been having an intense emotional affair with the man at the nail place (unbeknownst to him) because the of care he pays to your swollen feet, even though he doesn't speak the same language as you and you have never actually communicated.- When your husband is fine with your emotional infidelity, so long as he doesn't have to touch those kankles.
when you feel no shame taking the elevator instead of the stairs. Even if it's just up one or two floors.
When you get winded from moving around in bed with your body pillow trying to get comfortable.....
People are still shaving their legs? Oh.
-- when you make your hubby help you put on your pants every time.
-- when your 4 year old has to help Mama off the couch.
-- when you get up every two hours during the night to pee.
-- when getting up or even every time you turn in bed is an Olympic event.
-- when Baby Girl is sitting in such a way on your sciatica nerve, that it makes it hurt so bad you can't walk to the bathroom for the hundredth time today.
-- when you waddle so much, you look and feel like a duck.

Ooh - I have another one!
-When your husband moves to the guest bedroom every night because you and baby and your fort of pillows have kicked him out of any kind of sleeping space.
