UGH! I feel like their isn't enough room in my stomach! Ill be 30 weeks tomorrow(roughly lol,) isn't this to soon!? I don't know what to do... Im sitting my recliner with a decent sized pillow behind me like lumbar support and still no relief.. Its mostly on the outside, it doesn't feel like Im squished inside but like she's trying to pus her way out through my skin...

I can do my shoes, but it only occurs sometimes.. well mostly when Im standing... My SO will shave my legs for me, it just makes it easier, if not I have to sit on the side of the tub all awkward.

Yeah I feel squished like I lose my breath a lot and I can't really bend over. I don't feel stretched from the outside or anything though.

Me too! I definitely think the baby grew this last week (end of 28 weeks for me). I can see more veins through my stomach now too (didn't notice it before), so I think the baby is growing and stretching. Hope they don't turn into stretch marks! (I was lucky last time to not get any....hope this time is the same)

I just feel so stretched! Like if I lay or sit certain ways, it's uncomfortable. I am shocked to feel like this already-- I don't think I felt like this so early the first time around ?!

We went to play put put yesterday and my kids had a field day laughing at me bending down to get my ball ...at some point I just started making them do it for me!

Yesterday was also the first day I started getting that "in your ribs" feeling...joy!

Yep, very squished... I thought it was a little early too! This is going to be a long summer. I cant lean forward at all without it being uncomfortable. I havent gotten the all up in my ribs stuff just yet. Im hoping that since my torso is long, I wont really get too much of that until the end at least. Also hoping it doesnt translate ito a ton of strech marks.

Hhhmmm I've never felt too stretched on the outside. Already getting some discomfort in my ribs and definitely bteathless. I try to keep a positive attitude for as long as possible as I know I will probably go over and will be REALLY uncomfortable then :-D

Me!! Baby dude is head down and engaged, and I swear it feels like he just lays end to end and kicks what I think is my stomach, somewhere under my left boob. Getting in and put of my car has become quite the task!

Oh getting in & out of the truck is becoming SUCH a pain, especially because I'm short to begin with so I've always had to jump.. I'm quickly out of breath and always feel like I'm folding in half over baby & getting lots of acid in my throat when I bend over. Sometimes my skin feels so stretched I end up walking around with my hand on my belly to hold it in for a bit of relief. I was hoping not to have NEW stretch marks but I think it's bound to happen! 2 1/2 more mo!

Yes me too my lower back has been terrible. I had some intense back labor with our DS so I'm pretty sure that I will have it again! One of the biggest difference in this pregnancy than last is this baby has been riding low the whole time. I remember always feeling my DS in my ribs until he dropped but this time the movement is nowhere near my ribs it's all below my belly button. ..

It's very uncomfortable to bend over, or sit down (especially crossing my legs). I've got some pretty intense pressure going on most of the time.
