How low can you go?

This boy is hanging so low that all pants are uncomfortable now, even elastic skirts are slipping down further and making my skin irritated. This is new...DD stayed high the entire pregnancy, I never really "dropped" with her.

I have a couple dresses and will be going this weekend to get some more...

Anyone else hanging low already??

This baby is super low too. I had an ultrasound last week to check my placenta previa and they had to take my pants right off for the ultrasound just to get a look at baby's head. That was a first for me.
I also feel like I'm walking with a softball between my legs. I know I waddle hilariously. This is also the first of my kids to implant it's feet in my ribs and just push push push on them. It hurts alot.
I'm enjoying this pregnancy but the last month or so is testing my sanity lol

I am having the opposite issue - she's so high and breech that my breathing and eating are affected. No rib kicks here - just serious bladder shots!! Smile

I'm really low too- there's no room between my pubic bone and the baby bump. It's pretty much baby all the way down. But that's a good thing, and she's head down too, so I'm not complaining.

I definitely have a butt up in the ribcage and can't eat very well, but I also feel a TON of pressure in my pelvis when I'm walking around. I think this is going to be a big baby! I cut the seams at the wait to make my scrub pants for clinical fit, and each week I end up snipping them down more and more to compensate for the lowering belly.

Glad I'm not the only one Wink

I've refused to wear maternity clothes or anything elastic waisted. But yesterday I finally broke down and bought some cloth/elastic waisted pants from Old Navy and they are SO comfortable...although I feel like I might have plumber's crack since they keep sliding down!

Ha! Nope...I've managed to wear all regular clothes in both pregnancies, I just buy up a size or two. I don't find maternity clothes to be comfortable for me. I did find some rocking cloth-waisted shorts/capri's yesterday that are "regular" sizes and super comfortable.

Wow that is seriously amazing. I love my maternity clothes... they are my fave clothes I've ever had. Fit me better than any other clothes I've ever bought/worn. Interesting how our bodies are all so different in this respect!!!

I think I'm kind of middle of the road? I have no idea! I don't think I'm low OR high, if that makes sense. And I love my maternity clothes, too! Smile
