Do any of you feel like your hormonal fluctuations influence your level of clumsiness? Now, I'm not the picture of grace at any given time, but I usually keep myself from harm. I've noticed over the past few months that there are always a couple of days where I can't seem to walk and chew gum at the same time.



In the past three days, I've burnt myself with a curling iron, somehow managed to slightly sprain my wrist while goofing with the kiddos, walked into a closing subway gate (which hurt like hell), nearly killed myself trying out a new machine at the gym, and walked right into a stranger on the sidewalk.

Oh good, I thought it was just me. Now that you mention it, I notice that around the time of month I usually feel kinda drowsy... but in a dopey "I took too much benadryl" kind of way, rather than feeling plain old tired and fatigued. And that definitely pushes my clumsiness to the next level. On top of it, I'm EXTRA irritable... I'm like a bubbling volcano some days. So take an already b*tchy me, add some drop-the-same-thing-6-times-in-a-row, plus some stub-my-toe and a dash of bump-into-whoever's-behind me and you've got the perfect recipe for the most annoying, stressful week ever! I swear, it's like a one-man 3 Stooges act (for anyone watching... certainly not for me!) It's like... damn, I hurt my hand! Ow, I bit my tounge when I was saying "damn"! Aw man, biting my tongue caused me to drop this glass and shatter it everywhere! Crap! I just stepped on the broken glass and now there's blood on the floor and my foot is going to fall off! Argh! I knocked over the chair while stumbling around in pain! and so on.... hmph!

I have heard other women say this is true for them, but I'm not sure for me. Mostly because I'm pretty much a spaz all month long.

i've heard this before... supposedly right before a period and when you first become pregnant, you have a day or 2 of clumsiness. at my old job any time i'd be dropping things all day at work someone would ask if i was pregnant :P

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

How odd that you mention this, I've been keeping track of my injuries for the month of March. Most of them were at the start of the third week...

I've definitely noticed this, and it stinks.



Katt- you had me laughing out loud!



I'm on a hormone-balancing mission, I'll update if I find any miracles.

Oh my gosh can I EVER relate to this!! I know I get extra tired around my period but had never really thought of it like this... glad to know it's "not just me"!



Sorry Kat, the rest of your post made me laugh out loud!! Poor you!! I can sympathize!!

It's true. It happens to me all the time.

And when my sister was pregnant, she became extremely klutzy.

Keep sharp objects away from me right before my period starts. Just last week (day 27) The day started by poking myself in the eye with a mascera wand. Anyone who has done this knows it is a disaster. Not only does your eye hurt but it is watering so your eye makeup is running now too! Then I tripped over my own feet while wearing platform sandles and almost ate big $%@. I fell "into" my cubicle at work just catching myself before I took myself out on the filing cabinet next to my desk. That was all before 8 am.

I thought I was the only one... Add being a regular ole' butterfingers, being in slight pain, being a b*tch most of the time anywayand you have a great mix for the perfect week.

Oh my god!!!! thats me... i just never put the two together. Only I also have trouble speaking on these days. I switch around parts of words... like the other month i said " billy please stop cheeking the square" when i meant to say stop SQUEAKING the CHAIR... those are the days when everything falls out of my hands and i walk into walls
