Oh boy, I'm getting to the point people warned me about. The bigger I get the harder it is to do simple things. I'm starting to weigh whether or not it's really necessary for me to get up once I've sat down. It takes a little more work to get my butt off the couch these days. I don't need help tying my shoes yet, but I can tell I'm getting there too. This morning I was folding the bottom of my pants up and I had to stand just right to reach my ankles. I fear that the day I ask Josh to tie my shoes and shave my legs is right around the corner.
I read that the most belly growth occurs between weeks 20 and 28. I'm 24 weeks now and I can tell you that over the last 4 weeks WOW I've gotten huge! I hope that after the next 4 things slow down or I fear I won't be able to move!
I keep thinking about all the fun things I've got coming up over the next 4 weeks. Next week Tuesday the 26th, I'll be at the Woodchucks game hanging out outside before the game and maybe throwing out the first pitch. The following week is Wisconsin Valley Fair week so I'll be at Marathon Park all day every day of the fair. The week after that is Fuddfest so I'll be there working outside everyday. The week after Fuddfest is slow until Sunday when I will be hanging out at the new 400 Block for the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure. I hope I can still move by then.
When did you notice your belly growing the fastest? What were some of the things you had to ask for help on because your big belly was in the way?
