Pregnancy Chat

Every pregnancy book will tell you, you get a little more clumsy then normal around your 24th week. I remember it from my pregnancy with my son. I expected the normal bumps and bruises from walking into tables, chairs, and the occasional loosing of balance and stumbling around. What has happened to me blows these normal occurrences out of the water!
In the past 2 weeks I have knocked over 6 glasses of milk/juice/water at the dinner table. 6! I feel like a 2 year old!
I keep knocking my wrists into door knobs, my knees and legs have more bruises then ever, and every time I reach above my head to put something away in a cabinet, I fall forward. My clumsiness is EPIC!!!
What is up with this?! I mean, it's the weight in the front of me, so I can understand the stumbling around and the walking into things, but how do you explain my upper body oddities? How is my depth perception off too? Has this ever happened to anyone else out there?
I have to admit, I am clumsy to begin with. Not this clumsy, but the bruise free leg is not something that happens to me very often. Is this adding to it?
Sadly I think it might be time for me to stop riding my bike. ;( Hello third trimester!

Oh man! I'm doomed when I'm pregnant! Everything you described is everyday, un-pregnant me! I'm gonna have to wear bubble wrap! xoxo
