Earlier in my pregnancy I could eat all day, tons of food, nonstop, and never feel like this.

LADIES, I SERIOUSLY THINK I AM GOING TO BLOW UP.

I woke up already feeling slightly "full", and I blame that on being constipated but not too bad... we took DH's son and our niece to the IX Indoor Amusement Park and I ate half an elephant ear and part of a bucket of fries and still felt okay... started to get dizzy because it was super hot in there and chugged a pop (yeah, thinking healthy today ) and then I'm pretty sure my insides just tripled in size and I cannot move now. This is not the first time this has happened. I feel like I eat too much all the time and while I may not be full right then and there, a few minutes go by and my food doesn't digest but instead it expands or something

Is THIS what I signed up for when I got pregnant? This constant OMG I'm huge feeling? The worst part is I really feel like I'm upwards of 400 pounds when my belly is so big it's taking up my lungs' room and I can't breathe in all the way or get comfortable in ANY position whatsoever.

Ahhh that's all I got Guess I gotta learn to slow down on my eating situation or something - because this is so darn uncomfortable.

I totally feel the pain also!! Im only a couple days ahead of you so we are probably about the same size.. I read by the end of week 24 (where I am and you are almost) the baby will be about 14 inches long and 2lbs!! They're already that big!! I think I recently stretched yesterday or the day before because I can eat again today.. but haven't tried to push it.. I can only imagine how it will be 10 weeks from now!!

on a side note- now I REALLY REALLY want an Elephant Ear!!

I can't eat as much in a sitting anymore, either, though I don't think I feel too horrible otherwise.

That is seriously the ONE good thing about the third trimester; about 2-3 weeks before you deliver (sometimes earlier) the baby drops lower into the birth canal. You go from feeling like it is all you can do to walk across the room without gasping for air, and then one day you realize you can breath and eat again! It's nice.

I would try taking one day and loading up on fruits, veggies, water and whole grains and see if that helps!!

I completely understand! We went out to Carrabbas tonight and I feel like I am dying right now! I can't even sit or lay comfortably I feel so overstuffed. I didn't even eat half my dinner!!!

Im in this group too lol the problem for me is that I never feel "full" but rather my stomach just wont stretch. And then I skip the full feeling and go straight to the "I never want to eat again" feeling and start to hate everything until I can breathe again lol

As for the constipation, eat some frosted mini wheats! but I used to go four or five days without pooping and then when I finally would, it would only be a couple of little rabbit pellets. Doc told me that more fiber would help so I ate two bowls of mini wheats and my problems were solved! As long as I eat a bowl every few days, I never get back to that horrible backed-up feeling

With our last baby manbeast wanted to go to Golden Corral. I threw a fit when we got there becuase i refused to eat, just wanted a drink. I KNEW it ould be a waste of money to pay Sunday dinner prices when i wouldnt even finish a plate. he was sinsisting etc. The sweet old lady cashier rang us up and to our surprise, she charged me for a kids meal. Told us she had 7 kids and knew exactly where I was coming from. All parties happy I felt better about not wasting money, he felt better that I would at least eat a little, and the kids got to stay there instead of going somewhere I couldve boxed a meal.

I get this too. I feel like the ab muscles on either side are being pulled apart when I eat a lot. I feel like something will be busting out the middle of my tummy. I"m trying to eath healthy and keep the weight down, but I have fallen off the wagon a bit.
