Constant state of uncomfortableness

I'm not sure if I've coined a new word, but I'm sure it's a state that most pregnant women would understand completely.

It's not that I hurt or that I'm in intense pain. It's just that I'm constantly uncomfortable.

Bending over is pretty much a thing of the past. Sometimes I do forget and I bump the belly on my legs and remember very quickly that I'm a lot bigger than I used to be.

I've restricted myself to just slip on black shoes and some fur-lined boots that have short zippers on the side. Tying shoes is out of the question.

As is wearing stockings. That's just too hard and strains my back, and again the belly makes it all but impossible.

One major thing that's gotten really difficult is cutting my toenails. My prenatal vitamins make those suckers grow like weeds, and I do not like them to have any length at all.

Bob's idea of long toenails is completely different from mine. I cut them to the quick and feel like an eighth of an inch over is way too long. His are much longer and when he cuts them, they look more like mine BEFORE a trim.

This has obviously caused problems. He's tried on a few different occasions to cut my toenails. He ends up taking a minute sliver off after several minutes, which frustrates me. And I end up awkwardly taking over, cutting quite a bit off.

He says he just can't believe how short I cut them. So I've been trying to grow them out longer.

We were forced to cut them a couple of weeks ago when I cut holes in two pairs of socks consecutively. It was very odd, and I've never experienced anything like that before.

Well, last night I scratched myself with one of my long toenails. That means it's time again and I'm pretty positive that I cannot reach them anymore. We will have to cross that bridge tonight or tomorrow night. I'll let you know how it goes.

What has become your biggest obstacle? Hopefully I'm not the only pregnant woman with toenail issues.

Sweetie, definitely treat yourself to a pedicure! It is worth every penny and your feet will look nice when you deliver. Plus they massage your legs and it feels great!

My biggest problem would be shaving my legs - my hubby actually suggested, when I triumphantly said I'd done so, that I'd taped the razor to the wall and rubbed my legs up against it. He's lucky he's cute, I'll tell ya.

I definitely know what you mean about not being able to reach the feet, but I just sit with my belly between my legs, on the bed, to get to them. :)
Good luck!

That's a great idea Dawn, thanks! I will try that.

The thing that I find most uncomfortable now is trying to put socks on. I completely understand how you feel!!
