Forgetting myself and jumping on bed

(17 Posts)

I feel so bad about myself. Truly stupid and worried. I am 36+3 and have so far had a really easy pregnancy (knock on wood). So much so that sometimes I just forget that I don't have the old body anymore. So just now I jumped really heavily onto the bed (I wanted to lay down to read something.). Just after I did it I remembered I have a big baby inside of me. I am so worried I have harmed him! Does anyone else forget themselves and do stupid movements / jumps?

I am very impressed that you have the energy and ability to jump anywhere at 36 weeks grin.

agree with piprabbit!
I forgot about my bump once and lay down to reach something from under my bed - I sort of bounced straight back up again grin
Can't remember which Ds it was but they all seem mostly ok so I guess there was no serious harm done

At 32w with ID twins (two weeks ago) I was full of energy (all gone now) and played with dd at a soft play centre, squeezing though gaps and climbing etc. DH was laughing as I kept getting stuck as I forgot how pg I was. I've had a scan since and babies are fine. Hope your energy stays high - I can barely walk now.

I did a roly-poly backwards down Hastings beach at sbout 7 weeks pregnant (unbeknownst to me!) and baby is fine! Am now 20 wks and totally fed up of people telling me that I shouldn't be doing this/that/the other!!! I could scream sometimes grin

I was like that with DS1 - really easy pregnancy and I had no problems carrying the bump around as I'm so enormous and strong grin. It was a tidy bump but I used to whack it on door frames etc all the time, I just forgot it was there. No harm done. They are very well protected in there, you'd REALLY know it if you'd done anything serious. You probably just woke him up!

I forget all the time. Favourites are thinking I can fit in public toilet cubicles and banging the bump and thinking I can fit between two parked cars if I turn sideways (wing mirrors get me everytime!) blush.

I also have a really low bed and have thrown myself down way too many times without thinking. Bump still seems ok grin

Baby2b Mon 15-Aug-11 13:32:41

Oh, I also went sledging at 4-5 weeks pregnant. I didn't know to be fair and was going down slope on my stomach and everything.

I got knocked over by a charging cow at 7 months (I kid you not). Baby was fine. She's nearly 2 now.

<hands ceebie the prize for craziest bump incident>

grin

Thank you ladies, you have cheered me up! And the winner, definitely is Ceebie!

My friends say I have more energy than before I was pregnant hmm. Could explain all the unnecessary worrying I've been doing about all sorts of things. But will try and avoid sudden jumps from now on...

Good to know I am not the only freak that forgets though!

Thank you! These have quite made me smile this afternoon. DH asks me how I can forget when I've got a big unmissable football up my shirt but I still try to slide sideways between cars (Baby2b with you all the way!).

The worst time was when my niece asked me to join her under the local climbing frame, and being the big child that I am I willingly obliged, at which point DH came round the corner, laughed, and asked me how I planned to get out again. At that point I hadn't actually thought about that but apparently it was quite amusing to watch blush. Dignity? What's that?

GetOffOfMyCloud Mon 15-Aug-11 16:48:02

Still doesn't beat Ceebie though grin

PenguinArmy Mon 15-Aug-11 17:15:57

I practically fell down a mountain at 7.5 months pg with DD (New years day, lake district, snow/ice covered scree slope the year before last when people got snowed in).

This time around if I jump I pee so not so active grin

PenguinArmy Mon 15-Aug-11 17:16:53

I climbed up to 37 weeks last time and kept bashing into the wall and the holds because I forgot blush

GetOffOfMyCloud Tue 16-Aug-11 11:27:18

PenguinArmy, I haven't climbed for several years now, not sure if I could pregnant or otherwise (not good i know sad), I take my hat of to you for managing up to 37 weeks!! Seriously impressed.

I just ran for a bus (which I'm sitting on now), leaping down a set of long concrete stairs, am now in agony! Totally forgot I'm enormous, feels like some undercarriage ligaments have parted company with my pelvis! Sure I'll be fine by the time I get to town - damned MOT man taking my poor little car away!!!
