This is driving me nuts: My belly is huge and I have trouble sitting at work, getting up the steps, my stomach and my lungs feel crammed above my belly. These symptoms did not start this early in my other pregnancies but rather around 30 weeks.

Do you think it could be because I have an anterior placenta for the first time?

Or is it just that I am older and bigger and pregnant with number 4?

Maybe your body is more used to being pregnant now??? I have no idea, but I'm lumbering around like I was when I was 30 weeks last time too.

Same for me. I'm 21 weeks, but feel like I'm in my 3rd trimester already.

Same. I easily feel 7 months. My stomach actually doesn't feel huge yet, but my body feels like it normally does nearer the end.

I had an anterior placenta last time, and didn't feel like I do now. I don't actually feel BAD (no pelvic pain....yet) but I do feel huge. I need to take a look at belly pics from last time and see if I actually look any bigger, or maybe I'm just more tired, LOL.


edit: Ok, I went and looked at the belly pics from last time, and I may be a LITTLE bit bigger this time, but not by much, so I guess I'm just feeling it more this time, or something.
