I'm 37 wks and I can't lift my left leg while slightly bent to save my soul....I can get it about 5 inches off the ground to put my pants off! (my son loves to lay on my left hip and it hurts so bad to left the leg) As far as bending all the way over that's a no go! Its so bad that if I drop something while my husband is at work it stays on the floor until he comes home! It's not so much that it hurts to bend all the way over its just I can feel my son when I do it and it creeps me out that I'm squishing him....even though he is well protected still creeps me out! Lol!

It does get worse, but you will also learn to adjust and find new ways and positions to do things in

I am 36 weeks and 1 day and I can squat to pick things up but as far as actually bending over from the waist that is completely out of the question lol
if I try to bend over it feels like the baby goes right into my ribs and I can't bend any further
