So, the other day I went to walk past a friend in the corridor and underestimated the size of my bump. I ended up ping ponging back from the wall to the other side.

Today, I went to put my keys in the front door, fell, and banged my head against the door, glasses fell off my face, took me a minute to realise what happened.

Then, I tried to plug in lamps under the bed and forgot I have a huge bloody bump and can no longer shimmy myself under the bed to do such a job!!! The resulting technique was something to behold.

I'm feeling quite tired after a long day and if I don't laugh, I'll cry... So anyone feeling like this recently?! Here's me hoping I'm not the only one!!

No your not alone, Ive misjudged squeezing though parked cars, the wing mirrors prove a bit of a problem!

Getting to my patio doors I have to go past the sofa/wall, Ive bounced between both.

Its quite a shock, I feel like I need a sign saying 'wide load'.

Oh and Im only 16 weeks and very used to a slim and flat stomach!

I am 36 weeks and my massive bump happens to be at exactly the same height as DS's head. I keep looking him out of the way with it!

Oh yes, I've been there. The classic most women seem to do at some point is ironing their bump.

DH also does it. He shoved me into the work surface the other day because he misjudged how much I could squeeze in!

Oh this has made me feel so much better! I remembered another, I went to sit on the kitchen bench and it was tucked too close to the table so backwards I went, lucky I managed not to tumble back completely!!

Not quite the same, but I also drop food down my front like a toddler. My mouth is just too far from the table for sloppy food to stay on the fork!

And I nearly got my bump covered in paint the other day by squeezing through a gap in a room DH is decorating, before realising that normal me fitted, not 8 months' me!

A work colleague of mine told me a similar story about when she was heavily pregnant and managed to wedge herself between a cubicle door and wall in a swimming pool changing room. Lol! I'm sure I'll have a tale of bump bouncing/wedging before long too!
