obstacle

As of yesterday, I am 24 weeks pregnant. I have still gained only four pounds, but in the last couple of days I have officially reached the point where my belly is an obstacle, getting in the way when I try to do things. I reach for the dish soap at the sink and my belly bounces off the edge of the counter. I bend over to shave my legs and have to contort in crazy directions to reach. I dive down in the washer to pull out some clothes at the bottom and find my arms are shorter than they used to be. I turn over in bed and a beach ball prevents me from smoothly turning over in my sleep without waking up.

So far it's just a minor inconvenience, but it's definitely a sign of things to come!
