things you take for granted
 
now that you're getting bigger, are there things you used to take for granted that just can't do anymore? i get up and leave for work before DH and DS wake. i stumble around in the dark so as to not disturb DH. i usually stand to put on my socks. i realized that i am too big and clumsy to put on my socks while standing up!

tie my shoe. It is rather uncomfortable to lean over.

Not really, I just bump into things with my belly, and it gets so wet when I do dishes by hand!

I cut back on carrying my daughter back when we were TTC so it would be kind of gradual, so whenever I pick her up now its a shock at how heavy she is!

Carry my daughter, or have her lay on me. She is still getting so mad I can't let her lay on me!

I don't really have a belly yet, so I haven't noticed much that way. I sure do miss being able to stay awake through a whole movie though!!!

Nothing here related to size - I don't even have a bump. Just business as usual.

Nothing major yet. So far I miss my morning coffee, wearing heels all day, wearing my favorite pair of jeans (yesterday, I decided it was time to put them away. :( I can still fit in them but I don't want to stretch them out. I may still use them for interviews occasionally though.), certain contraindicated yoga positions, and sleeping however I want. My belly size isn't really interfering with any of my normal activities at this point but I am suddenly getting a visible bump.

LOL lets SEE...

bending over, getting up without groaning, sitting for long periods without my hips aching, food stains on my belly, sitting on booths at restaurants, sleeping on my back and not waking every 2 hours to pee, feeling painfully large and boated after the smallest meal, shirts dont fit right, pants dont fit right, bending over sucks...

I basically exploded last week, the twins are making themselves known to all.

Cooking dinner my belly kept bumping into the stove!! I haven't quite adjusted to my growing belly yet. And.. I miss my old regular clothes. I had lost a lot of weight over the course of the last year.. I kind of miss showing off how small I had gotten... good reminder to skip the sweets & cupcakes lol

I knocked a glass of water off the table with my belly a couple days ago. Its getting much harder to tie my shoes. I definitely have to be sitting to put them on. I just bought some tide-to-go pens for all the food I'm dropping on my belly! I'm actually finding it easier to carry my daughter as she sits nicely on top of my belly...it works as a ledge :)

I cant carry my dd this week. My low back is messed up. I want to tie y shoes or load dishes but its a struggle. Why is everything so low? Also the high stuff I cant reach anymore...I think i have no strength.

sleeping through the night without getting up to pee or waking up for several hours with no explanation, leaning over to pick stuff up, being able to go for more than 2 hours without eating

But I'm feeling so much better now than I was during the first trimester or even a month ago that I'm okay with these.

Almost all of the above. Mostly, sleeping comfortably (I'm a stomach sleeper and haven't been able to do that in awhile) and getting off the couch. I'm also somewhat glad that I'll be huge in the summer rather than winter so maybe I can get away with wearing sandals to work so I won't have to bend over to tie my shoes.
