I carried my daughter pretty low, and I'm carrying this daughter pretty low as well.
It makes it very hard for me to move certain ways, because there's a baby in the way!
I'm pretty tall, so I always figured my kiddos would like to stretch out and enjoy the room, but it seems not so.
How are you carrying? Do you think the way you carry is based on height?

I'm carrying my baby boy pretty high. I'm 5'6", I wonder if it has anything to do with height? I still have trouble with certain movements, it feels like I'm squishing him when I bend down

I'm carrying this baby so differently than I did DS. I guess I'm carrying high. Although, I feel hands in my pelvis and feet near my ribs so I am just carrying all out front I guess? Anyhow, I am so much more mobile this time. I can still bend forward quite well. With DS I also felt like I was squishing him if I bent forward after a certain point, but not this one.

So far, this one seems to be lower than my last pregnancy. I have a high waist at 5'7", and the bulk of it is still under my belly button. Last time, I felt like the crest of the curve was centered until those last few weeks. I'm wondering if it has to do with how the abdominal muscles are no longer connected the way they were in the first pregnancy.
