I’m running out of space!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cottonelle.


I’m in the home stretch as they like to call it (who is this they, and what does the “home stretch” mean anyways? I’ve hit 37 weeks. Technically, I’m full term. But, I assure you, while I am slightly uncomfortable, I know the best place for her is snug in her little apartment for a few more weeks! So, I’m hoping and praying that’s where she stays.

In the mean time, I just wish I had a little more space. Oh, maybe like 25% more space. I can feel little B kicking from one end of my uterus clear to the other. Most of the time simultaneously! I just wish there was a little more space in the old body. But, let’s be honest, if we all didn’t get uncomfortable towards the end, we wouldn’t ever want those sweet little babes to make their appearance. Because pretty soon, I’m going to be asking for more sleep and rest, and likely more arms and lap space.

I know in just a couple short weeks, I will miss the bump and the belly kicks, so I’m trying my best to savor each and every one of them. And, not complain when I have a hard time getting up from a seated position!

#MoreIsBetter Cottonelle

Simply put, most of the time, more is better. More Christmas desserts? More Christmas treats? More Christmas cinnamon rolls? Yes, more is definitely better! Having 25 percent more of these things (even with my diminished belly space) this holiday season can make a big impact. Follow the conversation on Twitter at #MoreIsBetter.

Wow, it’s almost time for her to come out! I remember when I couldn’t even see my own feet!

Enjoy your need for space now, because in a few days your will be having a lack of sleep, free time, and maybe sanity. Have always loved Cottonelle, but psyched to knew they have 25% more sheets per roll. Thanks for the tip.

I would love 25% more space in my bed! While I am not pregnant, I was getting kicked in the stomach all night long, too. My oldest has been sick, and while we generally don’t let the kids sleep in our bed, I was a bit worried about him and wanted him close… unfortunately, that means that neither my husband nor I got any sleep. I have no idea how a little 4-year-old can take up so very much space!

Can’t wait to meet Little B on your blog. I will be keeping an eye out for her.

Hahahaha! I remember feeling that way. I had two big babies so the last few weeks of each pregnancy I had 0 leftover space for anything. Even my own organs were squished. Who needs to eat, right? Now that I am not pregnant, I think I would like 25% more space, but in my kitchen and on my counters!

“Home stretch” is horse racing terminology (my dad goes to enough horse races, lol), and means that you’re almost close to finish line. I’m not sure why and how people started using the term for pregnancy, though. ;) ~lol~ But anyways, you look great, and I love that dress! :)

As uncomfortable as I was, I also loved the end of my pregnancy. It was the first time I could wear more body-conscious clothes without feeling fat. :)
