    Do you forget your bump is there and bash it of something? I dont forget i have a massive belly already but I have caught myself on the fridge door when opening it, kinda of like I misjudged the room I had. Dont hurt myself just have to be more careful as it gets bigger but noticed I am doing it more and more. :blush:

    I bash it all the time and it wrecks. It's really sore down my midline because of my separated muscles and even gently leaning or brushing it hurts. I can't get used to the amount of space I now fill.

    I've bashed it twice. Well I've only bashed it once, my mum did the other time. :o

    I was leaning in to give OH's family hugs when we was going home from a meal, and caught my bump on the corner of the chair his gran was sitting on.

    Me and mum was on bus coming home from shopping. We had my sister with us in the pram, and another pram got on, so we had to kind of swing the pram round so this other woman could get in. Well I stood up, mum swung the pram, and boosh, my bump got it. Not hard but it's scary.

    I'm more careful now,lol.

    My sister said that after giving birth the first time you stand up you tend to fall backwards!

    Anyone else find they get stuck between the chair and the table when you're eating? I can get in there no problem but when I try to get up I realize I haven't left enough room :rofl:

    I just can't get near my plate! They need to design them with a half moon bit out of them to fit round the bump!

    I was thinking about this the other day and wondered what it will feel like the first time I stand up. You must feel like you're floating!!!

    yes and so does Chris lol.

    I was at a hockey game a couple weeks ago and was clearly showing my belly at the time and some dude ran smack right into my belly....and went on with his day like nothing happened. A little apology would have been nice...lol.

    So I just answered the door to my Dad who was picking me up, leaned out and managed to bash my belly button hard with the door latch! Ouch!
