Feeling clumsy?

In light of everyone slipping and falling in the shower lately, I figured this is a legitmate question to ask. I have also now joined the slip and fall club--though thankfully not in my shower. I washed my dog this afternoon outside and when I let her in a bit later she was still damp. She laid down in my utility area that has linoleum and left a slightly damp area. I walked down there carrying my 20 month old and woosh! My one leg just kept going forward. Thankfully I caught myself before I did a complete split by taking the fall on my right knee. I didn't continue to go down from there. Conversely, I took the fall on my knee! Ouch! lol But my youngest son was unphased and I didn't fall on my belly or anything so I suppose I am also lucky. Later I tripped going up the stairs -_-; Who else is doing ridiculously clumsy things now that the bellies are expanding?

I'm so clumsy lately that I'm scared to carry my 13 month old because of it! Not only am I falling or tripping over what seems like nothing, I'm dropping everything I pick up. I almost cried the other morning because I kept spilling milk when I was trying to pour it into a sippy cup! I'm looking forward to being able to function again!

It's so hard to be careful when our balance is SO OFF!! My legs and knees get so bruised - i bump into everything all the time! It doesn't help that I bruise so easily. I'm very thankful that I've not done anything serious or fallen on my belly either. definitely a time to be extra careful!

Me too. My coordination in everything is off--apparently even in my brain. I just pulled my laundry out of the wash and discovered I put fingernail clippers in there. Not sure how that happened.
