My toenails need cutting...

...but I can't reach, DH refuses to go there, and I wouldn't want to inflict such pleasure on any of my friends/family.

Anyone got any nifty tips to bend into some kind of appropriate position, or is it time to book a pedicure at a salon?

If your dh won't give you a hand, get yourself booked in for some pampering.

I feel your pain. My DH would cut mine but I just don't trust him to do it properly (his own nails are never cut straight).
I'm 31 weeks pregnant and have a huge bump already but i just about managed to cut my toe nails by bending my leg to the side of me whilst sitting on the couch.
I wish I had thought about just going for a pedicure though; much easier option.

I can still do mine at 40+4, but my hips are quite flexible. I stand, put my foot up on something between knee and hip height, angle my belly between my legs, and reach down with my arm also between my legs.

siani I was exactly the same with DS, I could even still shave at 40+13 when I was taken in to be induced. Twin bump this time is causing a few more issues! grin

I have the same issue. I've a pedicure booked!

I sit on the edge of the bed and rotate my hip out slightly so my leg comes up to the side of my bump. All depends on how flexible you are though! Good excuse for a pamper session, so why not get a pedicure!!

I put my foot up on the side of the bath to cut the toenails. Seems to work!
