Seriously, over the course of the past few days, I've started feeling more and more pressure on my pelvis. I'm wondering if any of you accidentally swapped out my baby for a small bowling ball. If so, please return him.<br><br>
Every step I take, the momentum makes it surge downward. Are you ladies SURE it won't just fall out in the next month and a half?<br><br>
Yes, I'm both a first-timer and a whiner.

I know ONE person who's baby fell out. One. I talk to a LOT of birthing women. ONE.<br>
So it's not impossible! But I wouldn't bank on it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Usually much more effort is required!!!!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I actually asked one of the gyencologists I work with if a baby can just fall out. She laughed...until I told her my last son was born with a push and a half at which point she stopped laughing LOL She didn't really have much to say after that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
But seriously...I am thinking someone may have replaced my baby with a bowling ball with legs and arms as well. Oy...the pressure!

My guess is that the baby dropped. Are you finding it easier to breath now? I keep threatening to strap a bowling ball to my DH's stomach so he can see what it is like to try and get out of a water bed with that much extra weight. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> I just can't figure out how to make it stay their. Do you think I could strap it to him with a bella band?

Two words: Duct tape.<br><br>
I wasn't really having any issues breathing before, but that could be because of my freakishly long torso, so I guess there's really no way of knowing. Either he gained a bunch of weight over the weekend (a possibility... I ate food like a professional food eater this weekend <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">) or he dropped.

Add me to the bowling ball list and this one has limbs too! He's supposed to be head down, but somehow it feels like a hand is going to punch through my cervix. It's might uncomfortable.<br><br>
Maybe our babes are hanging out with our brains! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

So... let me get this straight... our babies have been mistakenly picked up by bowlers who left bowling balls in our uteri in their stead. They're all hanging out with a big pile of pregnant brains out on the Alaskan tundra somewhere. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
If I'm this punchy on a Monday, it's going to be a loooooooooooong week. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Nope, underwear all present and accounted for. Yours must be off romping with someone else's stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

OMG, for some reason the word "uteri" made me almost pee my pants. Or it could have been the mental image of a bunch of babies chillin' with a bunch of brains out in the Bush. Or both.<br><br>
Yeah. Long week ahead.

proud owner of a bowling ball here too. I guess it's better than worrying about him going breech again. *sigh*<br><br>

It's not far if you're a brain. They're tricky little monkeys.
