    I take a little to much getting use to.

    je prends - i take

    un peu trop - a little too much

    le pli - get use to

    Translations for le pli mainly included 'crease/wrinkle/fold' and "envelope3

    Also used in sayings like "ne pas faire un pli" meaning "be no doubt about"

    or

    "prendre le pli de faire" meaning "get into the habit of doing"

    Hope this helps! Context should help you narrow it down

    Yes, like the other reply says, "prendre le pli de faire qch" means "get into the habit of doing smth" (Collins Robert Fr. College Dict.), so presumably "je prends un peu trop le pli" would be something like "it's becoming a bit too much of a habit". This is a new expression to me too, so it will be interesting if you perhaps get some more responses.
