32 weeks: a Tuesday afternoon

I had a very pregnant moment yesterday afternoon.

Sitting at my computer,I dropped a vitamin, which then rolled just under my desk. I thought I could reach it from my chair (my arms probably are long enough, now we’ll never know). So, I opened my legs wide to make room for my tummy and I took the lazy ladies way of bending and reaching such that I didn’t have to actually get up and out of the chair.

Of course, I slid right off the chair, onto my arse. Then, I had to –after thankfully remembering to actually grab the vitamin while I was down there – roll myself upright again to get up off the floor. I think I rocked back and forth 3 times before gaining enough momentum to get up on my hands and knees! No one saw me (and thus missed out on a good laugh), but I was out of breath for a good 20 seconds!

Before pregnancy, I could have easily fallen out of my chair on my own. The rocking to gain momentum though, is a uniquely pregnant phenomenon.

LOL! What a perfect moment. When Lois was pregnant and she would lay on the floor for her back, I called her "the turtle" when she would try to roll over to get up. ;-)
