I'm 33w1d today. I'm also stuck straight out in front and I'm all belly. I have only gained about 10-12 lbs and it's just where the baby is. As far as my rear side, my tailbone hurts a lot and also my pubic bone hurts when I make certain movements. He has also recently started trying to claw his way out through my right side and my ribs! OMG it hurts so bad that I have to stop, hold my breath for a sec, and let it pass.
I think its really not related to whaether your carrying a boy or a girl, I think it just depends on your body, I'm carrying a baby girl but my behind has grown sooooooo much, and its not just me, my 5 year old girl asked me the other day and said since the baby is in your tummy why is your bootie growing too? I didn't now what to say?!!
I joke about it somtimes and tell my friends that since I got pregnant via IVF and they returned 3 embryos back and only one got implanted, I say that I think the other 2 were implanted in my two hips (lol)
my belly is I think average not too big nor too small. but it is stuck out front too.
anywho I guess we'll just have to tolerate the way we look the comming few weeks, then join a losing wieght forum after we give birth...
That is something we can help each other with in the May Baby 09 Maternal Forum
Looking forward to it... ;)
I am having my 2nd boy and am 30 weeks 5days and look huge. I've gained 12lbs and it's right in front, I asked my husband the other night if I looked pregnant from behind and he said surprisingly, no. When this little boy pushes up right in front, man it hurts. I can't believe it's almost time for our little men to be here.
I am carrying a boy also. I am 34w 4d and I think he's dropped a little bit. Everyone says I'm "all belly." My butt got a little bigger, but really not noticeably. My belly has never really been high enough to prop my food on or anything, but now that he's dropped a little, my belly is at a downward slope angle, so it certainly wouldn't hold my plate.
im carrying a boy!!! 33wks 4days i think im carrying low and infront if that makes sense! have a look at my belly pics on my profile,i havint gained any weight anywhere else apart from my bump which is great!!! i cant hold a plate on my bump though it slopes down abit!
Well, apparently what I see and what others see is not the same thing. I think I'm huge, but everyone I talk to says I don't even look pregnant unless I face them, because I am all belly. I know it has to start dropping because I've got a lot of pressure down below and my pubic bone hurts when I walk...and as I type Reece feels like he is digging farther and farther down, which doesn't feel so well. But, I know he is like me and moving around trying to get comfortable.
