I keep smacking myself in the face

I'm 19 weeks pg and my brain seems to have forgotten where my head is. In the past two days I've opened two doors on my face and cracked myself in the mouth on my desk. Is this sort of clumsiness normal?

Yes - I walked into a door frame yesterday and banged my right boob. Was agony!

Another clumsy one here.

Only 10 weeks pg, and yesterday I stabbed a waitress with a fork! blush It was a sort of semi-self service buffet thing, and she was trying to help me just as I was trying to help myself. it was like when you do that pavement dance with someone, when you both step out of the way but in the same direction, and I just sort of slo-mo stabbed her in the hand with a fork.

I have various cuts and bruises on bits of me, but this is (so far) the only injury I've inflicted on someone else.

Oh dear! But I'm glad it's not just me! I'm going to be black and blue if I keep this up.

Was she alright about it MFW?

She looked at me like I was mad. I think she thought I'd done it on purpose! Probably due to the slowly unwinding nature of the disaster. I apologised profusely, and she said it was fine - I think she was probably reassured by my utterly horror-struck face. Or else just wanted me to go away... Won't be going back there for quite some time!

Think it's our bodies telling us to stay under the duvet whenever possible, frankly.

Joking aside when I was pregnant I became clumsy turned out I was anaemic and bumping into things can be one of the symptoms!

You're kidding? I stopped taking my iron supplements as it happens - I hope it's not connected. I'm a veggie as well... <wanders off to find the iron supplements, crashing into furniture as she goes>

I'm always clumsy when my period is due. Am unfortunately clumsy all the time, at 20+3. Haven't stabbed anyone yet though... grin
