Clumsiness during pregnancy means often having mishaps or tripping up. Have you noticed yourself being clumsy since you got pregnant? Since becoming pregnant, you have small and silly accidents like tripping over steps that have always been there? Or dropping things unexplainably? Or bumping into doors that have always been there? Yes! We can blame all of the clumsy little accidents on pregnancy. Thankfully!
I had to laugh at myself many times due to my clumsiness during pregnancy. How often did I drop things, trip over, spill stuff? I seemed to get more and clumsier week by week. Some women could have more trouble with their balance during pregnancy than others.
Sometimes it just got beyond silly. I couldn’t explain why I had just tripped over that step again even though I knew it was there and always took care to step over it properly. I dropped several plates and glasses whilst emptying or stacking the dishwasher. They just seemed to slip out of my hands, despite taking extra care.
Being clumsy during pregnancy can sometimes get quite irritating and frustrating; bumping into the same cupboard or tripping over the same step repeatedly. It can get especially annoying when you have clumsiness combined with forgetfulness during pregnancy. Can you imagine going upstairs, tripping on the way, to get something which, by the time you get to the top, you have forgotten what that thing was. Some days you really feel like you should just give up and sit still.
Always consult your doctor for advice if you are feeling off-balance. Always report any slips or falls immediately to your doctor to ensure you get correct medical advice.
