I've always been a very independent person and have been very bummed out by not being able to do everything that I "should" be able to. However, I feel that some people think I'm completely handicapped and doing things that are unsafe for baby. Maybe I'm wrong. A very good example is: I'm 37 weeks and still extremely mobile. I don't waddle, still slightly flexible and have a good handle on my balance, regardless of tummy size. However, I'm also short and in my office I need to step up on a chair to reach many things. My office lady says something to me EVERY time I do this. Am I wrong and putting my baby in danger? In my head if I can't step up onto a chair then I should also not be permitted to cimb stairs.
