Pregnancy Klutz

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Klutz

Pregnancy turned me into a klutz. I guess I should have expected as much. As fingers swell and ankles balloon, it makes sense that agility would take a nosedive.

Slicing tomatoes became a harrowing task as my fingertips quickly became bloodied and bandaged. Even walking became a conscious activity. About halfway through my pregnancy, my husband and I took a babymoon to Italy, where I fell in the middle of a busy cobblestone street with scooters zooming by me. Luckily, the incident didn't cause bodily harm to baby or me — just my ego. Unfortunately, there's not much you can do about being clumsy. The only two things that helped me were better shoes and heightened awareness.

Were you a klutz when you were pregnant?
