I'm not as far ..but I can't get up either without a lot of effort and the occasional whimper to get dh to help me up...and laying down well that's another story haven't gained much weight about 7lbs... but the dr says weight from my body has shifted to my stomach so I'm just not used to this large stomach sitting in my way...does anyone else find sitting uncomfortable because of pressure on ur stomach...if my stoch hits my legs the pressure upwards is horribly I have to sit very unlady like lol with my legs wide apart to make room for my stomach...please tell me I'm not alone on that on lol....

My honey has to help me up whenever I try, and I sit to pull my pants on. I imagine anyone who watched me trying to sit up or roll over in bed would crack up. It sounds like I am trying to take a dump.:)

I am totally having the same problem. 33 weeks now and I feel like I can hardly move. THis morning I had DH help me get my socks on because I couldn't bend. This afternoon I dropped a CD on the floor at work and decided to work on something else as it wasn't worth the effort to pick up. My pants are becoming more and more uncomfortable, my belly is getting bigger and the litle guy keeps me up at night. I just keep telling myself- 7 weeks left...7weeks left... And I know it's all worth it so that makes it better too!

Oh and as far as pants go. Sweatpants, pyjama pants, that is ALL!

I'm 41 weeks and I can barely function anymore. I took my 2-year-old swimming yesterday, and I was panting so hard putting his clothes on a couple of women asked me if I was alright! I do a lot of rolling off of things, like the bed/couch. Also, a friend of mine gave me an ugly-as-hell pair of satin pyjamas for Christmas last year that I threw in the back of my closet, but I have found them very useful lately for sliding around and getting into position. None of my clothes fit comfortably anymore either. I'm pretty close to cutting a hole in a sheet and wearing that!

lol, everyones stories here are a good laugh. heaven, i am the same way sweat pants and pj pants,nothing else! lol. inuk i am 34 weeks in a few hours now . To pick things up i try to remember to bend with my knees instead like they said in the second trimester i think it was actually for round ligament pain or something.
