It is becoming increasingly difficult for me to shift my car into 1st and reverse. Does anyone have any ideas of why this could be?

i have to ASSume a 6 speed car? change your clutch fluid and then see what happens.
Put fresh DOT 3 in you MC and do this (http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/manual-transmission/488373-heres-how-bleed-clutch-without-getting-under-car.html). If you notice it starting to happen again then its time to replace either your master or slave cylinder.

Q: Why is my transmission hard for me to put into 1st gear and reverse? It seams like all of the other gears are fine. What could my problem be?
A: Most of the time if the clutch is not releasing the first sign is 1st and reverse problems. Check the clutch to make sure it is not worn. Bleed your hydraulics and replace if more than 30,000 miles on the slave and 50,000 on the master. While most of the time this is a clutch related problem, check the fluid in the trans to make sure it is full. Transmission fluid should be replaced ever 10,000 miles or 1 year which ever comes first. You wouldn't let your engine go 10,000 miles without changing it!
