I notice that if I try and grab something off the ground or anything lower than at my waist level that it takes a good minute of prepping to reach down and get it. My poor DD I think is getting tired of me asking her to pick up everything I drop lol.

you are so not alone -- I am having a hard time with laundry -- getting out of washing machine is killer sometimes (especially when this little rascle is not sitting in m back) When he's in my back it's easier even with back pain but when he decides to poke out in the front it's killer.

Yep, bending is tough and the grunting noises I make are super unattractive.

I can but it isn't easy. Last week I was making bean bags and each time I dropped bean and leaned down (from my chair) to pick it up I was grunting and my belly was in the way.

I am having a hard time trying to bend too. Socks are torturous to try to put on now, and I don't even want to think of putting my boots on, but I have to do that momentarily to go to my ultrasound appointment.

This made me laugh because I am so there!!! I can't bend on my knees either so the worst is when I give DS a bath DH has to come in and plug the drain for me because even sitting on the edge of the tub I can't reach it.

That's definitely me too..It is so uncomfortable to bend down! I have a bad knee so squatting to getting something isn't much of an option either.

I can, but I've noticed it has begun to hurt my stomach when I do.

no bending here... moving/getting up form sitting and squatting are all very noisy now. LOL i'm sure people hear me from a mile away when I'm exerting any kind of effort.

I can bend, but it's not comfortable. I too grunt and whine and whatever else...tying my shoes is getting harder and harder.

I feel like a T-Rex trying to drive a stick shift when I put my socks on in the morning. And the noises I make are really not attractive either.

Bending down is fine, getting up takes a bit of effort
