Cat trying to trip me!

My cat Tinkerbell was a stray that I adopted at about 8 weeks old. She is very sweet, affectionate & loving most of the time. She does have about an hour in the evening when she goes crazy & gets into everything though!

But the thing she does that makes me nuts is if I'm walking from room to room she will get in front of me & then lay on her back right in my path! Or if she's in the door way and I try to walk by her, she will flip over across the floor right where I'm walking.
I've heard that it is a great sign of respect if they show you their bellies but I'm afraid that I'm not going to see her one time & could really hurt her badly! 
I'm constantly tripping over her & if I can't figure out how to correct this behavior then I may have to give her away, for her safety & my own. I suffer from a clotting disorder like Haemophillia & if I fall, it could be very dangerous.
Please help me! Thanks, Charley

I know you posted this a long time ago and you may have given the kitten away by now, but my husband is in a wheelchairs and my big, geriatric Tonkinese used to flop down on the floor right in the path of where he was headed.  He has those long handled grabbers for reaching things on high shelves, and he used to snap those open and closed in front of Max until he would get up and move.  Of course, it's no help when Max plops down behind his chair while we are at the kitchen table.   It's just a matter of time before somebody is going to get run over.
