    It depends on how you define normal. Seriously, I have a healthy baby so I can't complain.

    I guess I meant... for example. Every time I go to get out of a chair, or out of the car, someone asks me if I need a hand. No thank you, I am still capable of hauling myself around. How about stairs? some days I'm peppy hopsalong and other days 15 steps is cause for a rest at the top

    Now, if I am laying on the couch watching TV at night, and I get too lazy to go potty before I hit emergency levels.. well, then I need my husbands help to get up without causing a disaster. But those are my fault for letting my bladder get too full. *Granted, that only takes about 45 minutes to do. And sometimes I need help sitting up in bed. But only if I let myself lay funny for a while and my hip gets all soft and spready.

    ClosetNerd, didn't you know that pregnant women are invalid? I felt like everybody was extra helpful when I was pregnant. Hello! I can get up and walk, thank-you-very-much!

    If I may give you some unasked for advice, though, I could not help but notice that you mentionned you had to buy more Tums for your heartburn. I also suffered from heartburn in my second trimester and bought Tums, for added calcium, but was told by a nurse that you can actually get "accustomed" to Tums and will get more heartburn. She suggested I switched for Gaviscon. They are not very good (they foam in your mouth), but they did take care of my heartburn permanently.

    I can do a pretty decent rabid dog impersonation with Gaviscon .
    I remember women were extra nice to me during my pregnancies - more so than men. Have any of you noticed that?

    *shudder* That foaming thing the Gaviscon does makes me retch. They do work, though, much better than Tums. I have reflux disease, and pregnancy makes it twice as bad - and I couldn't take prescription meds while pregnant. Ugh.

    Cricketeen, I think other women are definitely extra-kind to pregnant women. I certainly am.

    I haven't noticed it with women around here. They are certainly a lot more nosey and ask/make a lot more personal remarks than men. But for sheer politeness, I think the men I have encountered have them beat! I always attributed it to good old gender ignorance They can't fathom what it must feel like, so they assume it's horrible?
