My swollen feet won't fit in a pair of wedges I wore yesterday. I've officially entered the final stretch of pregnancy. While heartburn, believing my stomach can't possibly stretch anymore and the sudden need to reorganize our flat, were indications — water retention, and feeling as though my water was going to break while walking last week have sealed the deal.

As mom to two, I've been preoccupied with my daughter starting kindergarten and getting my son potty trained for preschool. But, my limited shoe supply is a big signal that this is it! I'd better dust off some flip flops and start focusing on baby who will be here in a matter of weeks. From exhaustion to cankles, every mother has her indicator that the time for the kiddo to arrive nears — what was yours?
