Anyone else losing spatial awareness?

I have broken two mugs recently by putting them down on a surface only to find that I have missed the surface by about 2mm. I know we're supposed to be clumsy because of change of centre of gravity, but breaking mugs is ridiculous!!

I know what you mean - I have developed a problem with doorways and cannot judge their width at all...

Yes keep bumping into people even though I know there is a big lump out in front of me. And I know it's dark, but have never had a problem getting from bed to toilet at night without hurting myself but every time now I am swearing my way there and waking up DH.

Not so much spatial awareness, but my sense of direction which is usually really good has vanished. Get lost on the streets near my house!

oh god yes- one of my early pregnancy signs is not ebing able to park the car (normaly am an excellent parallel parker!). Horribly embarassing, DH gets quite wary of going in a car with me!. ALso generaly a bit ditsy blush

Not sure about spatial awareness...just my general awareness that vanishes by the minute.

I keep banging my elbow or wrist on the same side of my desk at work EVERYDAY as if I dont know its there. Been working here a year now blush

Forget what Im talking about mid sentence and Im a receptionist and I keep putting calls through to my colleagues and forgetting who it is that is calling them. Im better off at home.

hettie my parking has been shite from the get-go, wish I could use pregnancy as an excuse blush

Yes, I remember having that problem when I was pregnant. And also, couldn't get my balance and find my center when doing yoga poses. (I'd had superb balance before getting pregnant).

And today I threw a plate at the floor after walking into a cupboard door which was open. Sigh.

Same here, bumping into doorframes as I walk through them to the amusement of my colleagues and I can't go long without having to describe a word I've completely forgotten mid-sentence... You know, the thing that does that thing...
