OT: Day 1

I am going with OT for overtime.
We also considered Occupy Mrs. Shife's Belly: Day 281.
Since we got signed up for the bonus part of the pregnancy, I thought I would share some quotes that my wife might or might not find amusing.

"Being pregnant is an occupational hazard of being a wife." ~ Queen Victoria

"By far the most common craving of pregnant women is not to be pregnant." ~ Phyllis Diller

"Childbirth classes neglect to teach one critical skill: How to breathe, count, and swear all at the same time." ~ Linda Filterman

"Have you ever tried getting out of your car through the exhaust pipe?" ~ Murphy Brown

"Having a baby is like taking your bottom lip and pulling it over your head". ~ Carol Burnett

"If men bore children, there would only be one born in each family." ~ Unknown

"If nature had arranged that husbands and wives should have children alternately, there would never be more than three in a family." ~ Lawrence Housman

"If pregnancy were a book they would cut the last two chapters." ~ Nora Ephron

"Life is tough enough without having someone kick you from the inside." ~ Rita Rudner

"Pregnancy The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new." ~ Rajneesh

"Prepared childbirth is a contradiction in terms." ~ Joyce Armor

"There is a reason God makes you pee every 2 hours those last 3 months, it's training for the every 2-4 hour feedings." ~ Unknown

"Think of stretch marks as pregnancy service stripes." ~ Joyce Armor

"You can sort of be married, you can sort of be divorced, you can sort of be living together, but you can't sort of have a baby." ~ David Shire

"You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment." ~ Dave Barry

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. "Overtime" works. Not to make her worry, but I was two weeks late, and they still had to induce. We'll be hoping for this all to end/begin soon.

  2. I like OT, but I'm sure she doesn't. Those sayings are great, love Phyllis Diller's. And so true what unknown said.

  3. I think OT is perfect. From now on it's just a matter of making a score... any minute.
    My favorite pregnancy line is "Never block a pregnant woman on the way to the bathroom."
    Great quotes!

  4. OT? Oh damn! I expected to read otherwise today. Fingers crossed the OT doesn't go on for long.

  5. Loving those quotes, but then I would, Im not pregnant lol.

  6. Called up the Doctor, the Doctor said
    "That's what you get for jumping on the bed!"

  7. Five Woots each for quoting Diller and Burnett ;-)
