Belly...

Anyone else's belly getting noticeably in the way? I tried to get on the floor and look under the couch a minute ago and it took me 10 mins to get my breath back and my belly is so big, it hit the floor before I could even look under the couch. I think I run into the "size" issue, more with opening the refrigerator. It always runs into my belly. Not hard, but enough for me to go... Really? I JUST did that! haha

Yeah, I've started grazing things when I thought I could squeeze by-guess I need to allow myself more space!

Mm not really being in the way, just noticing that it's hard to bend over or get up off the floor without need a boost from DH. LOL

We don't have a dishwasher, so I do dishes in the sink and its getting harder now that the belly is bigger. My arms are short as is, and my belly puts me a greater distance from the faucet. I really have to reach and it kills my back. I haven't really bumped into anything though.

Walking around my classroom I constantly feel as if I am whacking students with my belly. They think it's hilarious

I graze it by stuff, but luckily my arms are super long, so I think that helps a lot.

I had to move the steering wheel up in the truck so I could fit my belly in and still reach the clutch.

Yeah, I've noticed this too. My back hurts a lot from leaning forward to do things. And last night I dropped a piece of paper and was straining to bend down and get it and DH was like "you're pathetic" and got it for me. Most of the time if things fall on the floor I have one of the kids pick them up. Unless I'm doing there crawling around cleaning up, I don't like individually bending down.
