I just started to notice...

I just started to notice that bending over to pick things up is harder. I actually need to open my legs so my belly has somewhere to go! Oh how quickly we forget this stuff! I also noticed when I bend forward from sitting my uterus doesn't compress like it used to. It's like having a giant rock in there! So weird!

I have been doing this for a couple of weeks now! When I'm at work the quack at me as I walk from room to room at the hospital. Lol

I totally already waddle like a pregnant woman. And I make weird grunting, straining noises when I bend over.....LOL. I'm so dramatic.

I've noticed the last few weeks that if I bend over while sitting that I have an obstacle in the way Wink I can't bend over well while pregnant from seriously like 4 weeks on - all the blood rushes to my head for some reason super fast. I've had this with every pregnancy and it goes away immediately after but I basically start squatting to pick stuff up from early on.

HA HA HA! Totally dramatic! I love it! If I did that DD would says "You ok mom?" like EVERY time. She's so considerate.

I'm not sure I ever got a real waddle with DD because she was never head down or down low. Little stinker!

Sandra, LOL @ the noises you make when you bend over. I do that too. Then when I stand up, I announce to everyone that, "I'm okay! Thanks for your help!" LOL

Yes, I have noticed bending over is getting harder, expecially picking up after a 1 year old that drops everything when he is done with it. I told DH I will leave it all for him to pickup when he gets home! LOL

I have been noticing too that it is harder to bend and maneuver. For various reasons, the other night I feel asleep on the floor face down with my knees pulled up under my stomach. It was so uncomfortable and dont ask me why I even did it. But after about 10 minutes I woke up and was dizzy for about 10 minutes after that! I think all the blood pooled in my brain while I was down there!

LOL, you should have seen me blowing up balloons for DD's birthday party last week. Smallest breaths EVER. I felt like a smoker. Blum 3

I noticed with our dusting of snow last week... bc Ben wanted me to play outside and roll a ball but I couldnt bend to do it. since then I have had to have the kids start tying each others shoes at school because its a pain to get down to do it. Im supercleaning my kitchen right now (not nesting just tired of it being a disaster and gross..... plus everyone is sick so I figure it will help disenfect!. ) I tried to wipe down our bottom cabinet doors because somehow DH manages to make them a mess when he cooks/cleans/is near them..... and totally couldnt. DH will have to do that when he gets home!
