Can anyone recommend a good back carry to use for my DD (petite almost 3 year old) with our wrap now that my belly is starting to pop? Are there any carries that don't go around the waist AND don't cross the chest? I've been doing Tibetan, but my bust line is expanding quicker than my waist line and it's getting uncomfortable.

The only one I can think of off hand is Ruck tied Under the Bum.  :)

Most of the pregnant wrapping mamas I know use double hammock or ruck tied in front, just tied above their bellies.

I'd suggest a high back wrap cross carry(yes, they can be yanked REALLY high, I got really good at doing it) and put the crosses across your breasts to distribute the weight well. You can tie off above your belly. I really like rucks tied under the bum, but they're finicky to get right.
