This past week I feel like my stomach has expanded twice the size it was! Not kidding, all of a sudden I'm short of breath, having those round ligament pains like crazy and my already aching back is insanely sore now. Feels like this baby is gaining a pound a DAY! Lol.

Anyone else suddenly feeling VERY pregnant. I can't believe I'm this uncomfortable already! Wow. I had an ultrasound yesterday and all is well--except my stupid placenta is stubbornly remaining low lying. I really hope it gets out of the way soon! And baby is still breech. She told me it's too early to worry but of course..I'm worried! FX baby turns soon and placenta migrates north

YES! I feel very pregnant this week. My belly grows daily, it's insane. And people are making those "If you're this big now and you still have 3.5 months to go..." comments that drive me crazy. I'm pretty uncomfortable as well.

To make myself feel better, I google image search "25 weeks pregnant" which generally assures me that I am not in fact any bigger than anyone else is at this stage, on average.

Me too, a few weeks back I feel like I was suddenly BAM. I want to say somewhere between 22 and 28 weeks with all of my pregnancies, I've went through a big pop and a big weight gain to go with it... My doctor even mentioned at my 34 week appointment that she usually sees a weight jump around this time in women.

YES! I've been feeling like that this past few weeks. I can definitely feel that he's grown and he's very strong. And he moves so much! LOL! Last night I was just laying in bed watching my belly bounce around. I don't usually get too uncomfy, but I've had to start putting the pillow under my belly, round ligament, discomfort by my belly button...all of that.

oh yes, especialllly towards the end of the day after i've eaten and look BIGGER. I swear after lunch im a house lol. My hips hurt from sleeping on them and turning over from side to side in the middle of the night is a job now. Its funny to see my belly button move so much from her and feeling her go from side to side in my belly.

Oh thank goodness I'm not unusual. I am piling on the weight the lately, and it's making me nervous. Glad to hear it's fairly normal.

I was just thinking earlier this week that my belly seems to have gotten a lot bigger recently.

Well it looks like we're all at going through a major growth spurt! Im going to Walmart to buy one of those body pillows. They were a lifesaver when Ive been pregnant in the past. Just flop belly on it and sleep sooo much better

Yes the belly has popped. Although she isn't causing any discomfort in the ribs or anything--last night was the first time she moved above the belly button. She rides low.

BUT I have begun to waddle and need assistance getting up when my couch swallows me.......lol

I've also noticed I'm breathing a lot more heavily.

I don't mind--I'm loving being pregnant!!

My doctor said the same thing at my last visit.

My little girl is pushing up into my rib cage every so often making me completely uncomfortable and short of breath. And I feel HUGE. I really feel like my skin CAN NOT stretch any farther

I guess im having a growth spurt as I feel constantly hungry!

However, I think shes breech so Im not completley uncomftable. I remember feeling Mia up in my ribs at this point but this time, not so much.
