you might be in the third trimester if...
...the mere thought of bathing your toddler makes your back ache.
...a glass of water can give you heartburn.
...you cannot read any of the Chronicles of Narnia books aloud to your boys without getting choked up.
...you are fairly obsessed with birth stories.
...you leave a ladies' brunch, go home, and proceed make yourself half a sandwich.
...you often feel that you'd gladly give your right pinky toe for a glass of orange juice.
...you're excited to see autumn arrive, because summer clothes no longer flatter your figure.
...everything sounds good to eat, but at mealtime you have very little appetite.
...you find yourself physically unable to exit your vehicle in a crowded parking lot....because the door won't open far enough without hitting another car.
...watching "Baby Story" on television makes you sad.
...your children try to sit on your lap, and are disconcerted by how little space is available.
...you think about chocolate...a lot.
...the chronically chaotic state of your children's playroom makes you cry.
...realizing that you forgot to do the one thing your husband asked of you this week makes you cry.
...having your eyeglasses knocked off by a large rubber ball makes you cry.
...you fantasize about sleeping on your back.
...you lay down to fantasize about the coming babymoon, but fall asleep too soon.
...you avoid sitting on the floor if there's even the slimmest chance you might need to stand up again soon.
...you spend a lot of time planning which desserts you'll make next.
...the fact that your midwife is happy with the amount of weight you've gained endears her to you forever.
...tiny baby hiccups are among your very favorite things.
