I have a shower stall in my bathroom that has one of those glass doors. The opening is rather small and last night when I headed in I got stuck. (have to go in sideways) I started to cry and DH rushed in. He didn't laugh as he helped me out, but I could tell he wanted 2!

I'm so big that...<br><br><br>
I unconsiously view my surroundings based on the potential to gore myself on the corner of a counter or piece of furniture. I never remember how big my belly is and am always banging into the corner of this or that- or slamming into the back of my 5 year old's head.

Trying to get out of bed in the middle of the night is not only painful, it's laughable. I seriously have to THINK about it for 10 minutes before I can even attempt it.

I have to lean away from the sink to do the dishes and rest on my elbows to give me support. I dread the daily dishes. I am thinking about buying paper plates to save my aching self... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I bang my belly into everything also. UGH

My belly sticks out so far that now my arms are too short to reach things.<br><br>
Yesterday, I couldn't clean the back of the microwave because the belly stopped me at the stove.<br><br>
I have to stand sideways at the sink to get water from the RO filter faucet, one arm reaching the handle and the other hand holding the cup. Standing face forward, the belly stops me from reaching with either hand.<br><br>
Last time I tried to carry an armload of laundry, I felt like I was walking blindfolded--couldn't see around myself or the clothes to know where I was walking.

On the dishes theme...I can no longer reach the switch for the disposal on the backsplash behind the sink.<br><br>
On a potentially more embarrassing note...I was on my way to a meeting yesterday and stopped in the bathroom where I happened to see in the mirror that my pants zipper was all the way down. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Why they even bother to put a zipper in maternity pants I DON'T GET but there is no way I was seeing that one without the mirror.

I was at a work meeting in a restaurant and I got up to visit the bathroom.<br>
When I got back to my seat, I had to turn sideways to squeeze between my seat and the one next to me. Underestimating the size of myself, I rubbed my belly across the back of the head of the man sitting next to me, who happened to be a member of our companies executive team. Classy and professional.

yup bumping into things here too...sometims on a sharp corner. ouch!<br><br>
its kinda interesting trying to go in little shops around here (London is full of small shops full of things) when i have DS on my back and the belly in the front, its near impossible to get thru anywhere! (I have stopped wearing DS as of this week, yesterday i tried and couldn't breath well at all, possible, but very hard for me which is sad, b/c i've been carrying him for 2 years almost!)<br><br>
anyway, i try and balance my cereal on my tummy but she keeps kicking it offf.

I'm so big that I keep losing my almost 2yo...only to realize I just couldn't see him over my belly! I've knocked him over repeatedly while cooking because I can't see him. I've also had to switch to carrying the laundry down to the basement in a very small round laundry basket as I can't fit through the doorway with the regular basket <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I'm so big that. . .<br>
I mow my children down daily. Two of them are at just the right height to be obscured by my belly so I'm forever tripping over them or knocking them over.

Same kinda things you all are reporting. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
- bump into my DD often - poor girl, she apologizes to me! If she's standing at just the right angle my belly blocks my view of her<br><br>
- constantly bumping my belly into furniture, etc as I cannot remember that it's there!<br><br>
- dropping food on myself and not even noticing it half the time<br><br>
- I sat down on the floor today to help DD pick up her playroom and it took conscious effort to get up and finally moved to a hands and knees position and then pushed myself up to standing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I'm so big that I was starting to doubt that I could get out of the bathtub this afternoon. LOL
