You’re irritated by your other half’s inability to place a simple order.

You wanted chicken selects, not nuggets! And no BBQ sauce…really?

You’re so tired, you end up in a different county.

Fell asleep on the train home from work. Again. Taxi!

The toilet is your BFF.

By the time you've pulled your knickers up and washed your hands after a pee, you need to go again. Perhaps just keep some mags or your iPad in there to pass the time.

You’re wearing shorts in the blistering rain.

Anywhere, anytime, anyplace – you’re hot. And not in that way.

You cry. A lot.

From sobbing at dog food adverts (and you don’t even like dogs) to crying when you’ve run out of chip sticks – there’s just so much to blub about.

You go from normal to hulk in two minutes.

Prangry. It’s a daily state of mind.

You’ve got the skin of a teenager.

If only you could trade the spots for the same bikini body.

You wake up in the night…

Anxious about the lack of sleep you’ll get once your baby’s here. Go figure.

But your breasts look amazing!

Might as well flaunt them while you’ve got them, but no touching please...
