I started having issues when my belly got really big and would get hot. We have a nice gas stove and I now get to stand back while cooking.

I cook dinner everyday at 23.5 weeks. Sometimes, standing for too long hurts, so I sit or kneel on a stool. Other than that, no problems. I sure hope my belly doesn't get in the way! Lol I like cooking nice, homemade dinners.

My husband has taken over cooking responsibilities because of my dizzy spells.  If I get to warm, I almost fall over. Uuuuuugh.  Luckily, hubby to the rescue.  :-)

Im lucky, I cook almost every day, often twice. I love cooking though. I find I'm OK doing stuff that's mostly standing still and with limited movement like cooking. I only have trouble doing things like mopping, stretching, bending, reaching down to empty the dryer, scrubbing the bathroom, things like that which are a lot more movement. They do make me real, tired real quick. 8 mo here.

No kidding!  The crock pot is my bestie these days. I throw some food in there and a pretty good meal comes out of it a few hours later. Love it!
