Can You Still......

Clip your own toe nails?
Paint your toe nails?
Keep yourself trimmed and neat "down there?" Wink
Tie your shoes?

Lol

*****
I can clip my toe nails, but painting is becoming quite the challenge and it's sooooo not neat. I can tie shoes, but it's becoming awkward now.
And I can't see myself down there at all, so it only gets a good grooming when I have to wear a swim suit. Poor DH. Lol

I am not going to try anymore then I have to at my toes anymore. I will get a pedi if I have to now (normally don't pay to have that done) I blindly am sweeping the edges "down there" now, but am doing a good enough job. I don't really have to worry too much about dh right now since the doc told us to take it easy in that area because of the low placenta. Figures, because the 2nd trimester hormones are kicked in full gear. And I really don't have many shoes that I need to tie.

What I do have has been a back now giving me troubles, a killer headache that kept me home from work yesterday, and now today my wristas are acting up. Seriously, I am only 21 weeks. I am in big trouble.

ANd I still don't know what we are having Sad Okay sorry, venting over.

If it makes you feel better when I was trying to pick stuff up off the floor last night DH came running over because he thought I was going to fall over. According to him I'm showing the same signs of "breaking down" as I did with Aiden - at 35 weeks! I'm just now 24 weeks. Yay.

I am headed to my old chiro in a little bit to see if he can help a little.

For now I can still do my own toes which is totally surprising because being plus sized and pregnant its even harder to see your feet lol. As for keeping trimmed down there I am way past that point so luckily my SO doesn't mind helping(tmi I'm sure). And I really only wear sandals. Shoes and almost 100 degree weather just don't mix.

Clip your own toe nails? Yes
Paint your toe nails? Yes, but it's not fun!
Keep yourself trimmed and neat "down there?" Yes, but I have only been doing it before I head to the beach or pool.
Tie your shoes? Yep

I am still only 21 weeks though so I am a bit behind some of you ladies.

Clip toenails... only in the morning
Paint toenails, only in the morning
Keep myself trim? To some degree. The upper half, yes, other parts, no.
Tie my shoes? Only in the morning. By afternoon if I take my shoes off either DH has to do it or I wear slip ons for the rest of the day.

Did manage to exfoliate my feet in the shower yesterday though. I was pretty impressed with that.

Tie your shoes? I have already switched to just flip flops and slip on shoes so no problem here. I haven't worn my sneakers in weeks and at this point I walk slow enough that flip flops do the trick.

I've just started to get to the point where it's a little difficult to bend over.

Cute thread Jackie!

Clip your own toe nails? Yeppers!
Paint your toe nails? Yes but, they're definitely becoming more "abstract" now. Wink
Keep yourself trimmed and neat "down there?" Yes-it's beginning to be a struggle. Ob will soon need a roadmap! LOL
Tie your shoes? Probably could if I wasn't a barefoot/flip flop wearing hillbilly in the summer. Wink

Paint your toe nails? yea, but i don't really do this myself, when i can afford a pedicure i get it done that way, i don't even own any nail polish.
Keep yourself trimmed and neat "down there?" yep and i am quite proud of myself for keeping up with that lol
Tie your shoes? yep.

Clip your own toe nails? Yes
Paint your toe nails? Yes, but probably not very well much longer!
Keep yourself trimmed and neat "down there?" Kinda - flying blind, but I do attempt to!
Tie your shoes? Getting tough - easier just to wear flip flops. Thank goodness it's summer!

I'm definitely getting big enough that the belly is in my way more and it's hard to move around it sometimes. Agree with PP that mornings are usually easier to move around, by nighttime, I just want to beach myself on the couch!

Clip your own toe nails? Yep
Paint your toe nails? Yep! I kinda wobble a little
Keep yourself trimmed and neat "down there?" Funny you bring this up- just last night I attempted and it was quite the struggle, felt like I had to lift and push my belly back to try and see and eventually gave up
Tie your shoes? I dont wear shoes with ties so Im not sure haha

Yeah it ocured to me this week that I was gonna have to buy some new shoes in the next month cause my boots I wear for work 2 to 4 days a week are pull on and I am having difficulty getting reaching my feet. Time for some nice heavy duty slip ons.

Clip your own toe nails? Yep oddly enough.
Paint your toe nails? Yeah but it's not pretty! lol I just have my SIL come help me since she's a manicurist.
Keep yourself trimmed and neat "down there?" Unfortunately no, poor DH I'm sure it's looking like a jungle down there. I can however shave my legs thanks to the the most wonderful invention Venus Breeze! (I can't guarantee I won't miss a spot or 2 though...)
Tie your shoes? I usually wear sandals so I haven't had to try this lately, but last time I wore shoes it took a lot of maneuvering and huffing and puffing to get it done!

Clip your own toe nails? Yep
Paint your toe nails? yes, not as easily
Keep yourself trimmed and neat "down there?" LOL, I was just talking to DH about this last night! I do the best I can but like Cait said, I'm flying blind! Can't see what I'm doing so no telling what it looks like when I'm finished!
Tie your shoes? I wear flip flops most of the time and the tennis shoes I wear for the treadmill are slip on.
