YES!!!  Bending over.  Even when I am sitting down.  I am sitting on the couch now in my il’s house and I dropped a pen and asked my dd to pick it up for me… my belly is just too HUGE!  It is so hard to put on my shoes (dh has to help me with my boots) and it is almost impossible to put on underwear. 

Also, getting up.  It HURTS to get up and I look like an 80 year old woman when I do.  

That is why I get so frustrated when I sit down only to have to get back up to pee and then have to get back up to pee again 5 minutes later.  It took me literally like a minute the other day just to get out of bed.

Wearing shoes…. I live in my flip flops now even to go out.  I love flip flops and wear them year round but I cannot wear many of my shoes anymore.  Actually none of my shoes fit now because my feet are so FAT!

Mine is anything that involves anything in my kitchen, eating, food prep, dishes. I feel like I’m constantly in the kitchen preparing something to stuff in my mouth because I’m starving all.of.the.time! I use the little appetizer plates in my kitchen for all of my food, one for toast in the morning, then for my Amy’s bean & cheese burrito, again for my cheese and crackers. By the end of the day I have a horde of plates & silverware on the end table in the livingroom. I promptly dump them in my sink where they sit for a couple of days, silently willing DH to do the dishes (which he will if i ask him to)… I’ll cave eventually and load the dishwasher, but it sucks! I used to never, ever go to bed with dishes in the sink & now it happens all of the time.

Wearing pants. Even with my maternity pants, I take them off as soon as I get home. Nothing is comfortable!

Not pregnany anymore (my little guy is 16 months) but what I hated was putting on tights- I thought that since I would be pregnany thru the winter, dresses/tights/boots would be “easy”– once I got dressed it was comfortable, but geesh- getting those tights on was a feat!  Don’t miss that at all!

haha. This is awesome!

We have a really high bed, like as high as the top of my hip bone (I’m only 5’3″, but still, it’s crazy) so even pre-roundness I had to vault up onto it. Now at bedtime I sometimes just stand and look at it for a while to work myself up to the challenge.

Showering. Not actually difficult, but I feel like a Furby when I look down and see belly with just the tips of my toes peeking out from beneath it.

Putting shoes on. I haven’t worn a non slip-on shoe in 2 months because I just can’t be bothered to A) put socks on or B) tie a shoe. I’m dreading the onset of cold weather.

I used to wax my own legs once a month, and it’s almost time for the next round, but I’m not sure if I’ll bother. I’m 7 months along now, so I’m seriously contemplating just paying for the last 2 wax jobs before baby gets here. Last time I did it it was like a hilariously humiliting Cirque de Soleil preformance.

Add me to the “bending over” list.

Also, getting dressed. Period. I hate doing it, which makes workout days even more unbearable than before (I’m already so tired and NOW I have to change my clothes to work out and THEN change them AGAIN when I’m done, UGHHHHHHHH).
