I never thought that I’d need physical help when I was pregnant. Of course, I knew that there’ll be physical limitations, but not to the extent that I’d need a hand even just in getting up from bed. I was almost helpless on my last trimester; my tummy was very big, my toes were swollen, and my back was aching 24/7.
I was fortunate enough, though, that my husband only works on weekdays with an 8-hour day shift. This means he’s able to assist me most of the time. He puts on my socks or shoes for me, cuts my toenails, and picks up stuff that I drop.
However, there was this instance when he just dropped me off my doctor’s clinic and I had to go home all by myself. There was no problem the entire time I was out. The only problem came when I reached home and I was about to take off my boots. It was a disaster. I was about to cry when I decided I’d just walk around the house wearing those.
I told my husband about it and he was quite sympathetic. A few days later, he showed me the boot remover which he made. It’s a savior, really. Not to mention that it’s not only for pregnant women like me, but it just generally makes life a whole lot easier!
