Bending & Twisting

Who can still comfortably bend and twist?

I sure can't! OUCH! It's like there is a ROCK in my gut! LOL. My nightly 1 hour check of K's hair (for lice) is killing me...I have to lean and bend and hold myself up in positions that are just not humanly possible at 29 weeks pregnant! LOL

I had to merge into a different lane while driving yesterday (twisting around to check) and thought for a minute I pulled a muscle. This whole lack in the range of motion is starting to suck.

It's hit o miss for me. Sometimes it is just fine when I'm laying down, other times it hurts, especially when im sitting up.

I was helping at soccer registration last night and in between kids, I was sitting on some steps. Only I realized I can't comfortably sit on them anymore!

Im finally getting a belly but it's still oddly small. I think this kid is all the way back on my spine! So while I may not look like I should be terribly uncomfortable, the fact is he is hiding in there which is somewhat painful!

I have a small watermelon attached to my front. All relevant hilarity ensues.

HA HA hilarity for you or everyone else? I just get frustrated! LOL. That said, when I'm sitting at my desk working I forget I'm even pregnant. Blum 3

I hadn't noticed, but just tried to and the whole body went with me, lol!! Guess I won't be trying that again soon.

Bending sucks, I prefer to get down on my hands and knees if needing to pick something up, but then there is the whole issue of getting back up.

Chairs at work are still fine, but the couch is another issue. So comfy while I'm there, but god forbid I need to get up quickly, lol!!

haha - this reminded me of me. Last week there were some workers at the house. They were coming in and out - and EVERY TIME they came back in, they knocked and I had to HEAVE myself up and let them in. Finally I was like look - I'm VERY pregnant...can you just come in? I can't get up any more LOL
