1) keep trying to squeeze through small spaces only to remember that they have a giant bump that won't let them through?????

2) be late for things and then attempt to run to the car. the resulting look being some kind of arm flapping, fat, waddling, pregnant lady who looks like she's about to fall over?

3) sit having a conversation with family/friends and suddenly realise that you have been silent for the last 10 minutes being otherwise occupied watching the weird movements your bump is making... and everyone is looking at you?

Ha! All of the above. Embarrassingly when I squeeze past people I just hit them in the arse with my bump as I've forgotten it's there!

Also tend to keel over putting on my knickers or socks.

Stayed with my parents over Xmas & one morning they were p*ssing themselves laughing as all they could hear was me grunting as I tried to dry my feet.....

1) used to walk between the cars in the carpark and then get to a poit where the cars were parked wing mirror to wing mirror and think "Ah...". To cap it all, it was always in front of a CCTV camera.
2) thankfully can say no to this one
3) Yes. To make it worse, I was sat in a meeting with 5 other people including my boss and his boss and I came to to see them all looking expectantly at me waiting for my answer to the question they had clearly just asked.

LOL at no. 1 soupdragon I've done that.

Also not realised how large the bump was kept 'bumping' into people in queues.

It alos took me far too long to get to grips with not being able to 'breathe in'.

In a funny way - I actually miss it. (DS now 13mths)

lol! I have driven into our car port and then realised that I can't actually get out of the car without bashing the door against a brick wall. Neighbours must think I'm completely loopy driving in and out for no good reason .

haha bagpuss, i did that in a carpark the other day. had several goes at getting in right, much to the amusement of a couple of nearby blokes. Luckily the person parked next to me arrived back at her car so I waited til she went before I got out the car!
