People in NJ and OR I have a question...

How do you reach your gas release nob when you have a big belly? Or do you make your DH/SO get gas in your car?

I drive an Odyssey and it was a nightmare when I was pregnant with DS. Now I got HUGE with DS but still. The button isn't by the seat, but by the foot. So how do you deal with this issue?

I opened car door and reached down. when the doors open, i could get around the steering wheel. I have a crv, so I guess the release is in the same place.

Once or twice, I asked the attendant at my regular station if he could do it for me.

I would just ask the attendant to do it.

Haha! I was at the pump a couple days ago and could barely reach the thing! I have an Odyssey as well, and still several more months to go. If I was barefoot I might be able to do it with a foot, but it's too cold for that! I'm thinking the gas attendant may have to help in the future

There is a medical supply store not far from me. I think I will stop by there and see if they can help me. I can't imagine this isn't something the deal with that infrequently, and for better reasons then just being pregnant.
