Pregnant and Clumsy

This weekend was not my finest moment. I had a lovely FALL/TUMBLE/STUMBLE in a dark movie theater. To top it off, my husband was out of town, and I had all my kids with me.

I ended up having to spend the weekend in the hospital so they could monitor the baby.

AND today, I saved myself from an almost second fall at Costco, getting gas, and trying to step over the gas hose in a short skirt with flip flops. 

So have you fallen when pregnant? I would love to know I am not alone in my clumsiness.

Happy Summer!!
thanks for reading!

Yep, I've fallen too. When I was pregnant with my son, I was carrying presents out to the car on Christmas day when I tripped and fell. I spent two days in the hospital so they could monitor the baby. I'm expecting again, and I am constantly tripping-no falls yet though :)

I took a fall at nearly eight months prego with my third. It was more on purpose though. My older two were sledding down a hill that was too steep for a 3 and 1 yr. old. And we were having the kids sled down a small portion in the middle of the hill. (Not the smartest thing) There were several other adults out with us but somehow my kids got past all the others. I was the last adult, and if I didn't stop them the kids would end up finishing the huge hill. They were too far away from me so I had to run several steps and make a dive for it to catch them. It was pretty scary! But baby number three made it OK!

I love reading your blog BTW!

When I was about 5 months pregnant with my son I was working at a ski lodge driving buses and early one morning I was walking to my bus and I slipped on the ice and fell... I'm sure it looked a lot like a cartoon with a lot of leg movement, ending up almost in a set of the splits! After that, I made my husband walk me to my bus each morning! I think that being clumsy (along with many brain farts... or at least on my part!) is just a part of being pregnant!!! :)

I tripped (backwards) over a rocking chair ottoman when pregnant with #2. It was early in the pregnancy, so I didn't even think to call the doctor. Baby turned out fine, though! I felt like an idiot for forgetting the ottoman was there - in the same place it had been for 3 years!

OH,my gosh Sharla! I hope you're both alright! I wish I were there to help with your kids. You'd better take it easy :) (easy to say, with 3 littluns!) I'm thinking of you.

So I never had HUGE falls like you, but when I stumbled a LOT. So much, that the good old 3rd graders at Freedom used to keep a tally of how often I tripped. Good times :) Glad that everything was okay with you and the baby though!

When I was pregnant with my first I was working in South America for part of the summer and my first night there I slipped in the shower. I wasn't hurt badly, but I sat there crying for a good long while, saying "What am I doing in South America? I must be crazy!" Eventually I forgave myself and had a great time.
