So funny you wrote this... I just noticed yesterday I was starting...<br><br>
It's also funny as I keep forgetting how big my belly is getting, and I keep bumping my belly into things... It's getting painful... I'm such a mess lately<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I am!! I am carrying her very low and I am feeling a lot of pressure already on my groin/leg areas. I feel like I am really showing now too... definitely waddling already. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I am. Mostly when I am worn out or moving quickly. So I guess pretty much all the time since I am running after a 20 month old all day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I think I am! Just in the past couple of days too! We just ran into a neighbor that said to us "Is someone walking differenly?" He knows, it's just been a while since I've seen him.<br>
There is still so much time left, it seems. Can we really be waddling already?<br>
I know I can't hop out of my little honda hatchback anymore and I for sure have to take my time getting up from a chair. When did this all happen?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I. Won't. Waddle.<br><br>
I have been huge and pregnant before, but I would rather walk 17x more slowly than waddle. I just won't.

YES!<br><br>
It's to early! I try not to but it just feels good sometimes. I have noticed my pelvis being tender and loose. I guess it goes hand and hand.

I don't know if I'm ready to admit to <i>waddling</i> yet, but I'm definately walking differently. (OK, so maybe I'm waddling! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ) Ack! I'm only 19 weeks! I'm already huge, too -- for 19 weeks, anyway. I have a feeling it's going to be a loooong summer. Third baby syndrome, I guess! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">

i've almost fallen down the stairs a few times the past week or so. That is scary. And I keep running into things, and it's getting hard to get out of bed ( a futon on the floor). ANd it's only going to get better!

I'm not waddling but walking is sometimes painful so I walk a bit odd. I get a lot of sciatic type pain in both hips. I experienced this a lot with DD's pregnancy but it seems a bit worse this time. Picking up my 26 lb daughter contributes to it as does the fact that I can't sit still. I've been doing some yoga stretches to try and help. I know a lot of it is just my muscles stretching.

I am here waddling like a duck. I just started but apparently the relaxin has kicked in and the hips just don't work the same way. I always thought in the past that I waddled because of the weight I had gained but I have only gained 7 pounds so it can't be that. I am also having a harder time getting up from the couch. I am just glad to finally be looking pregnant instead of lumpy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

How funny! I was thinking as early as my 1st trimester that I will be getting stuck in my car once I'm big. I'll have to sit on the street with my door opened beeping the horn until my dh comes out to lift me out of my Saturn's low bucket seats.<br><br>
Only when I have been walking a lot do I notice a slight waddle. I know that it will come in full force soon.

Well I started this journey looking lumpy...as I am "well-padded"...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I have been waiting to start showing from under the lumpy layer. What I have noticed that is definately harder to get up from the couch and that I too am start to walk a little funny....so I know that something is going on in there. Also, back is starting to hurt after sleeping...I had to go out and get a body pillow.

Not sure if mine qualifies as a waddle, but definitely walking differently because my lower back has been so sore. The babe flipped from head up to head down so I have a lot more pressure, especially on my bladder (experiencing the sneeze and pee now as well).

I am well-padded too so definitely started lumpy and just got lumpier as time went by. I am finally not so bloated and my bump is getting bigger so I am actually starting to look pregnant. I know in the next few weeks it will really pop out and that will be great! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

Waddling I think I have to say no to. But there's a definite change in my gate. I seem to wiggle my hips more - they just feel so much more loose.<br><br>
What I really notice is running. I'm not jogging or anything (ha!) - just when I have to run quickly from the car to the house in the rain or something. I just cannot make my legs move where I want them to go. They seem all floppy-like, doing whatever they want to do. Kind of creepy, actually.

Thank you for this post b/c I am def. already waddling and think I have been for a couple of weeks. I can't believe it's happened already. I sort of try not to if I become aware of it. I am carrying low this pregnancy like some other mamas here. It's a strange thing b/c it's been uncomfortable for so long already. I didn't have prob. with my other pregnancy.
