I SO hear you all. I haven't had the shortness of breath yet, which is good since our house is 3 floors and last time I couldn't even go from the basement to the top floor all at once! HA HA!
I AM having the problems bending over. Picking stuff up is a joke. I just leave things laying around now and hope someone else picks it up one day. DD has to climb on a chair so I can put her shoes on. LOL. When I bend to far it feels like EVERYTHING is squishing inside me!
I REALLY noticed the belly on the plane when I got in a position where I had to pass someone in the aisle on my way back from the bathroom. HA HA HA! Ya, wasn't happening. Oh, or when DD dropped something on the plane floor. It felt like a huge rock was squishing my guts when I tried to pick stuff up!
