How did you ladies carry your babies? Out or around, high or low? Was it different with different pregnancies? Share a picture if you want!

I carried my son OUT and low, my belly was huge. Here's the last pic I took of my belly, at 39 weeks

All AROUND here. It was disgusting!! I'm really praying that doesn't happen again, but if it does, at least there will be a baby in the end! I can lose the weight, I've done it before

I carried Hunter much lower than I did with Brylie..not sure if that was because he was a boy, or if it was just because it was my 2nd pregnancy


(i cant believe how different my living room looks..we hadnt lived in our house very long, hence the ugly curtains and wall color)
37w with Brylie (my last belly pic, she was born the next day)

I got bigger with Hunter, since I carried him until 40.4, but i chose this pic b/c it was the same gestation as Brylie

I think I carried both my kids pretty low. They didn't really kick me in the ribs, so I guess that's the trade off. I also carried them way out front...I pop really early and it looks like I have a big ol basketball/beachball under my shirt eventually. Though from behind you cannot tell... I don't tend to get big all over. I have a short torso, but longer legs, and my theory is that there's just not much room in my torso so that's why I pop out early.

I'm tall and pretty fit. I was the tiniest pregnant woman ever. I gained 10 pounds and never really had a bump. I didn't look the slightest bit pregnant until about 27-ish weeks. When I was in labor the nurses kept asking me how far along I was and if I was sure because they kept thinking that they were going to be delivering a micro-premie.

It started out as my Husband's as well, but then it got in with the stuff I wash on hot and shrunk. But since that picture I caught it on something and ripped a big hole in it. Made me so sad.

I have such a short torso and my son was so big he was posterior the last few months of pregnancy. So when he kicked or stretched his feet, I could see his little foot sliding across my belly. And I could feel the crisscross of his legs if I pressed around. He turned in labor though, thank goodness!

I carried him low and in my butt and face. I was so swollen all over. After I had him it all went away, though.

I carry mine all out front. I'm short so I don't really have space and there's not really a high or low, just all out front. Here's a pic of my a few days before having my last, but this is how I carry all of my babies. I look like crap in the pic, because we were staying in a motel, waiting to deliver her because I had been 5 cm dilated for about a week and they didn't think we'd make the two hour drive to deliver her. I have to deliver two hours away in order to have my vbac's.
