It's official, my belly is starting to get in the way! When I squat down for something, I have to keep my legs spread farther apart to make room for the belly, it's starting to get harder to cross my legs, and sitting certain ways on the couch I have to adjust for the belly. Oh and it's now officially big enough to catch food I drop... Anyone else?

Oh yes momma!!! I always drop food on my belly now.... so when we go out.... I have to wear my napkin across my belly... I am use to have a catch all (AKA boobs) for food, but now that my belly is bigger than my boobs it seems thats the new target...

I also have to make room when trying to pick something up... or I ask DH or DD to pick it up for me.... DD is always more than happy to help...

My new belly is in the way issue... is now I am finding it difficult to manuver myself in bed... if I am trying to climb into bed... or trying to climb out... it always seems like I am trying to climb mount everest.... I usually am outta breath by the time I accomplish either....

What drives me NUTS is when I manage to climb into bed, and then manage to settle down and find a position that is comfortable... only to find out... WOOOOPS I gotta pee..... UGH and then starts all over again.....

I think its amazing how Its such a task to get in and out of bed, but in the middle of the night when I wake up to pee.... Its like I can jump outta bed again.... maybe its cause I am half way asleep and I dont think about how uncomfortable it is... maybe thats another reason my back hurts... hmmmmmm

It was so in the way yesterday! Had a golfing tournament with the administrator at work and big wigs from corporate. I could not golf worth a hoot. I'm never that bad. Was so embarrassing, and by the end of eighteen holes it was getting really hard to tee up and swing. Victoria had enough of golf after six hours!

Yes! DH had to reverse out of a tight parking spot to let me out because I couldn't open the door wide enough to get out.

Yep same here. I have to spread my legs as far apart as possible to bend over if I'm sitting down.
Same with bending over and squatting.

I am liking that its getting to be just big enough to use as a table.
Anyone remember Phoebe in Friends using belly as a table for her cereal bowl?

I have a real issue with my belly as a food catch - all. It's like the second I had any sort of a belly at all, I could no longer make it through the day without a stain on my shirt. I'm not normally this clumsy!
