We went to test out sofa beds this past weekend. I must have been a sight to see, moaning and groaning as I rolled in and out of several mattresses. One was so low that I had to ask DH and my MIL to pull me up because there was no way I was coming up by myself. Really graceful, for sure...

Ha ha ha! Nice to see this thread! I have to get up after taking a BM before I can pee, even though I know I need to. I've been trying to hold up my uterus (with my hands) and lean forward sometimes when I need to pee, but that doesn't always work and I have to get up and wait for a little while. Going in the shower sounds nice, I'll have to try that! I never seem to be able to get it all out. At bedtime, I have to pee at least twice in a short period of time. LOL!
Definitely getting much more awkward. I have trouble washing my feet while standing in the shower (or loading/unloading the dishwasher, or searching for something in the fridge, ...) without getting pain and/or BHs.
My baby is very low, DS was like this too. I call her "this rock in my belly". I think that makes things harder with bodily functions and PSD, but I also feel thankful not to have baby kicking my lungs, I feel more of a sideways leg stretching that makes my belly stick out funny just above and next to my belly button.
This is me all day now! I went to the drug store today, and some jerk parked right.next. to my drivers side door. I had to climb my large butt through the passenger side to get in my car. Needless to say, there was a lot of groaning and grumbling going on. And getting out of bed now is absolutely the least graceful thing I have ever seen.
