It’s bending over for me as well. Trying to tie my shoes for work is pure torture, it actually hurts! Luckily, my DH always offers to put my shoes on and take them off for me if he’s home. I work in retail, so I frequently drop things like hangers and my coworkers have been really helpful and try to pick things up for me if they see it happen and they’re not busy.

It was also bending over for me.  Once, when I was at work at eight months pregnant and dropped a pencil on the floor, I burst into tears.

Early pregnancy: staying awake. lol

Late pregnancy: Because of complications (hydronephrosis), pretty much any task was the bane of my existence. I would be in so much pain and (sorry TMI) urinating so much blood that even laying in bed was excruciating.

All I could to was keep telling myself that it was temporary…and taking advantage of the fact that my DH was at my beckon call 🙂

@iarebridezilla:  You are hilarious!

I find that “rolling” out of bed is awful for me. I honestly wake up and lay there for a couple minutes contemplating the best way to get up. 

It’s just so freaking uncomfortable. There is no way I can just sit straight up. That is NOT happening. If I roll out of bed I may end up in an awkward position that is even harder to get up from (i.e. closer to that freaking floor!) If I shuffle then I have to wake up my dead tired arms. 

It’s just a lose-lose situation.

Eating. I like to eat meals, but as soon as I do, I regret it. I have to waddle to the nearest laying-place and just lay there. For hours. Inevitably, my dog will decide she needs food at that very instant, and I just whimper in my husband’s general direction. Most of the time, he responds by feeding her. If he doesn’t, I just whimper the whole way to the closet, her bowl and back. It’s really quite pitiful. I’m not even that big yet, but with a belly full of baby and food, I’m useless! 

And in general, getting up after I’ve sat or laid down anywhere. It’s my general job to feed the ferrets. Sometimes I forget, so they come get me and say, “Uh, mom, our bowl is empty.” This most often happens, however, once I’ve crawled into bed for bedtime. Again, I just whimper. 

And now I sound like I neglect my children and forget to feed them. Our pup tells us when she’s hungry (we sort of free feed, but only when she’s hungry), and the ferrets don’t need food everyday… sometimes I just forget to check their bowl and or think I fed them just the day before. My husband says I’m going to forget to feed our kid… but if the ferrets are able to wake me up, I’m pretty sure the screaming kid next to me will get her point across, too.

Totally bending over. I have two bars of soap in the shower because if I drop one, I have a backup! Lol I use my two year old to help me pick things up. Poor kid. Lol ill say “help mommy pick up that thing I dropped please.” She will look at me like seriously mom?

@iarebridezilla:  So lucky!
I was lucky enough to have very minimal morning sickness…so I felt like I won BIG TIME there. …little did I know that I’d get a swift kick in the ass (or kidney) for the last half of my pregnancy.. hah

And here’s another…getting out of the effin car. My DH parked on a slope the other day(our car is really low) and I just gave him the death glare then said “go slap yourself.” I have to use the door, the center console, seat belt, and handle thingy to push my whale of a self up and out.

I remember being stuck on the couch one evening.  We have a big, comfy couch that reclines as well.  I came home from work and propped up my ‘popped-can-of-biscuits’ feet and about 10 mintues later realized I had to pee.  Except, I couldn’t UNrecline the couch, and I couldn’t sit up enough to lunge myself off of it.  I had to sit there and pray I didn’t piss my pants until DH came home from work like 30 minutes later.  I called and told him to HURRY THE EFF UP and get home at which point he started laughing so hard I was worried he’d wreck then I’d be stuck on the couch, sitting in piss, until I finally went into labor.

He did get home in time, thank goodness.
