3rd Trimester

What does your bump make it difficult for you to do?

I have found that at this point being able to sit comfortably to eat at the table is pretty much impossible!  We went out to dinner tonight and I already knew that sitting in a booth was not going to happen, but now even tables are uncomfortable! Heck, just sitting here behind my computer desk is difficult because my bump causes me to have to sit so far away from the desk.  Yes, and even putting on socks & clipping my own toe nails are a thing of the past - thank God my husband is willing to help me out!

So...what does your bump make it difficult for you to do?

Re: What does your bump make it difficult for you to do?

  • Shave my whoo haa and itch my feet!

  • Sit,lay on the couch at night comfortably, bending to put on my sneakers/shoes, laying on the floor to play with DS...and my bump is not even that big yet!

  • roll over comfortably at night, walk through the classroom without bumping any kids with my belly causing me to apologize ackwardly lol
  • Clip/paint my toenails, put lotion on my feet, bend over to pick up DD's toys (or anything else!), roll from side to side at night, and shave the lady bits!

  • Definitely have troubles bending down to pick up things, which stinks because I'm so clumsy, LOL.  I work at a library, and it's difficult for me to reach over the desk books.

  • Sit, bend, reach, see, move...

    You know, normal things people are expected to be able to do.

    Especially when my little brat has her feet crammed up into my ribcage.

  • Cut my toenails and bend down/over. Also, reach things when I have to stretch over something lower to get to whatever's higher up.

  • Put my shoes on, pick things up off the floor, help DS.

  • So, so many things. I've huge issues with eating right now. My bump is HUGE so it keeps me back from the table and the only way for me to be comfortable in our chairs is to lean back a bit. So I'm way far from the table and end up dropping so much food. I actually gave up on my salad at lunch because I was making a mess and refused to hold the bowl under my chin and shovel it in.

  • I haven't had problems with sitting at tables, because I'm short enough that the bump mostly fits under the table, but I had trouble washing something in the (lab) sink today at work, and I can't do the dishes at home, either.

    And I gave up on shaving long ago...(sorry DH).

  • BREATHE!!! I feel like my lungs are going to collapse! (I know that's not the bump's fault per say but if there wasn't a bump, I guess I'd be breathing OK), shave .. my lady parts and my legs. Put my cute, flat, strappy, gladiator sandals on lol lay down, turn from left to right in the night, get out of the car when you're parking in a parking lot (like at Target) and you're next to a car -- interesting!

    Peeing in those cups at each appointment. I can't see my lady parts let alone aim in a cup. I blindly put one down there and hope for the best!!

  • I'm not so big that I can't move like I did, I still sit on the floor cross legged and can paint my toes and shave my legs and other parts lol. But I am in a perpetual state of discomfort. No matter how I lay, sit, or stand I'm am horribly uncomfy and that is super frustrating cus like I said I'm not very big so I don't get why I'm so uncomfy.

  • Washing dishes is hard because I have to lean over just enough that my back starts hurting quickly after starting the chore.

    Putting pants, socks, shoes on is also a task that requires preparation...gotta take a big breath before I bend over to put them on! :)

  • Everything...  Shaving my legs & girl bits, bending over, playing with the dog, doing the dirty with my husband...  you name it, I struggle to do it!

  • putting on a seatbelt, shaving, bending down to pick something up....
  • Everything else everyone has mentioned, plus cleaning the house. After trying to clean, I am completely exhausted after 15 minutes. Any bending over, squatting, being on my hands and knees, stretching to reach things etc. is really really difficult. I wish I could get a maid for these last few weeks. I bump my belly into everything.

  • Putting on a belt and tying my shoes!

  • This and most everything mentioned by other PP.  With the lady bits, I've been getting brazilian waxes, so that takes care of that.

  • My bump gets in the way when we want to "get busy". We have two staple positions- both of which aren't my favorite.

  • It's difficult to do everything that everyone has mentionned.  Forgive me, but one TMI item that has been an absolute pain is wiping after having a BM.  And since having to go more often in these last weeks it's been such a chore. I cannot wait to be able to have some freedom from my bump!

  • Have you tried satin sheets? They make a WORLD of difference for me. I can't sleep on cotton sheets anymore...this bump makes it unbearable.
  • Sleep!  This LO thinks it's party time at 4am and starts doing all sorts of kicks and movements which wakes me up and keeps me awake for at least an hour lol It's nice to know he's active but I'm hoping this isn't a hint to how his sleep pattern will be when he comes out lol. Stick out tongue

  • SHAVING Angry

    Putting my shoes on, picking stuff up at work THAT CUSTOMERS LEAVE ON THE FLOOR! UGH! Getting comfy at night, eating is hard now cuz it feels like my guts are all squished up against my throat, getting the laundry out of the top loading washer cuz I'm short and my bump totally gets in the way...I have so much more to complain about but you all have pretty much covered the basics LOL

    Oh! I cant enjoy the hot tub with Babe so he's sitting in there drinking beer and chillin without me Hmm

  • Picking up toys in my kindergarten class... I had to give them a chat this week about making sure they pick everything up because I can't do it anymore!  I've also had to switch to a big person chair... instead of one of those tiny ones when I'm working with the kids!

    ditto the wiping... I've definitely had to modify my technique...

    also shoes and pants... I sometimes sit down now but not always possible...sometimes its the bump... but the sciatic nerve causes trouble too.... shaving is difficult as well as washing my feet!

  • Reach for things at work.  I work at a lab bench and have to lean and reach for certain things.  Now I actually have to move things closer or get up and stretch to reach them.
