Ok, I just have to put this out there. I'm 21 weeks pregnant with twins, and I feel like I am about to burst!! Everyone else seems so calm about their expanding bellies, but I'm feeling about 8 months pregnant right now, and cannot imagine getting much bigger!! I am already moving so much slower, and the least little thing wears me out. Someone give me some comfort and let me know I'm not the only one! LOL

Hey and welcome I am sure you will find plenty of people here who understand. I am not one of them though. I still barely felt pregnant at 21 weeks, and barely looked pregnant (I was wearing matenity clothes, but since I am overweight to begin with, no one would have known I was pregnant without me telling them). It wasn't until I was about 29-30 weeks that I had people at work tell me "You finally look like you're pregnant." Now I definitely feel it and I can't believe how quickly I get out of breath doing nothing at all really.
I am sure it seems like forever away, but it will go fast!

I am 19 weeks on Friday and I feel exactly what you are talking about. I go to the mall and now use the benches because I get pressure feeling down there if I stand too long.

I was the same way! I couldn't do anything that required me to be on my feet longer than 30-45 minutes! It was definitely tiring, but totally worth it ♥ Just try to take it easy and not tire yourself out too much. The end will be here before you know it!

I will be 28 weeks on Thursday and have been feeling like this since about 20 weeks. I can't imagine what the next 10 weeks will be like. I am always out of breath and it's hard to get up off the couch or roll out of bed. And the exhaustion!!! I could sleep all day. Way different then with my son. I am trying to rest as much as I can and listen to my body.

So good to hear ladies!! I feel so much better; This is my 5th pregnancy, I thought I'd seen/done it all, and I never imagined there'd come a day when when rolling over in bed would render me out of breath. haaha
I know it'll be all worth it - I'm so excited to have twins, I can barely wait!!

Exactly! I don't even really call it "rolling over" any more, because for me to get from my back to my side I have to just about push myself upright and then roll to the side. It is crazy and leaves me huffing and puffing. I may not feel that huge, but I definitely feel the effects when I try to "roll over" or even just try to get up off the couch when I have sunk in good ... if DH is around I get his help, cause it is MUCH easier that way
