Every pregnancy I feel like there is no way I can get any bigger. And then I get pregnant again and BAM even bigger than the time before! I feel like I can't even sit up my belly is so huge. I get out of breath so easily. And its not like I've put on a bunch of weight, I'm only up 9lbs. And the baby isn't huge either, she's measuring right on track, my belly just gets gigantic! The skin on my belly is so stretched at this point its starting to rip open. How in the world do I have 12 weeks left????
I feel the same way! I don't look huge, well according to other people. According to my dr, I've only gained 15 pounds. I can't lean forward and I just feel so hard and stretched. Is it hot where you are? I'm attributing some of mine to 90s temps every day and 100% humidity!
I hear ya! I feel like a hippo is sitting on my chest, especially after I eat. My skin isn't splitting, but it hurts and feels like it could any minute. I never got this big with Claire and was pretty comfortable the whole time...this is a whole different ball game, and it isn't that much fun!

awwww Im sorry girls... its not fun feeling like that... and hurting. yesterday I felt like a HIPPO! and was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo uncomfortable... today I dont feel like a hippo but Im still really uncomfortable...
Yeah I'm as big now as I was when I delivered my first. And getting to the point of how big I was when I delivered my second. I'm not sure there's enough of me to keep growing out for 12 more weeks! lol
LOL. So. I've been informed by dh that I am in fact bigger than I got with Elias. SO encouraging. Seriously?? The baby grows an awful lot in these last three months!!!! Every old stretch mark is completely stretched out again, so I guess we're going to start seeing new ones in the next couple of weeks. Sigh. I didn't think it was possible to get more of those either! This is part of why my midwife wants us to rule out twins... or rule it in?? Ahhhhh!!! That appointment can't come fast enough for me!!!
