Standing at a mere 4 ft 10, this little girl has no where to grow. I ROLL out of bed, when I reach for things, my belly knocks them over.. not to mention my ginormous boobs, (H cup anyone?)! Getting into and out of cars and trucks... Yeah, get me a step stool, seriously! My feet dangle on the potty.. I am a Belly and Boobs with appendages attached....and have 6 more weeks of this to go.. She has NO where to go but in the front making my balance not so much there anymore. Being short and pregnant... HARD on the back is just the beginning.
My son, he spread himself out.. I was round all the way around (to the tune of 48 inches around!). This one, has decided she's going forward and out. I constantly feel like I'm going to topple over, that I have no business trying to even reach the lowest shelf in my cabinets for fear I'm going to drop everything on my head because I really can't stretch to reach higher, even with the aforementioned step stool.
I feel like if I was of average height that a multitude of these problems would go away! Tell me I'm not the only one that feels like another even 4 inches would make all the difference in how I feel? (And maybe being this little explains in part why laboring with my son was all back labor, and the braxton hicks I'm feeling now, also in my back is to be expected being a short little thing!)
Well, I'm no 4'10" but at 5'4" I think I qualify OMG, the feet to the ribs! I can't wait for Sprog to drop. He/she is such a rolly Polly and is keeping me up all night with his/her gymnastics. People gawk at my belly. I just tell them baby has no where to go but out.
I'm 5'2.5" tall. At 27 weeks I had been asked a couple times if I was sure there was just one baby this time. There is another lady at work two weeks ahead of me. We've compared us side by side. We're about the same but she's at least 4 inches taller than me so my belly is just more noticeable.
I can feel baby girl at the very bottom (bikini line) and the very top of my uterus at the same time. I don't wear shoes with buckles anymore because it's too hard to reach the buckle, even swinging up my leg to my lap.
