Sternum Baby

Ok, I don't know if this is a twin thing or what. I look like I'm carrying really low but obviously I've got babies babies everywhere. My girl has her skull jammed into my sternum and I feel like I can't lean forward or slouch in the slightest. My bra is killing me. What to do? Complain more? Sad

Eeeppp...I'm the opposite. Feels like both little heads are grinding down my pelvic bone. I only feel them up higher when I sit down. But the bra? The bra can go up in flames. It comes off as soon as I get home. I just wear a tank top with a shelf bra built in when I'm at home.
Hope you find some comfort.

I can't breathe right now because they are both high. But I totally agree with the bra thing, I hate clothes in general right now!

I know exactly what you mean, I just ditched mine because I could barely breathe! And last night I was looking for a shirt to wear to the grocery store, and just gave up and wore my big sleep shirt, lol!

Its awful but I rarely ever wore a bra from about 28 weeks on! I was taken out of work at that point so was home most of the time. I couldn't move wearing a bra - it was so uncomfortable! I am only 5'1" so the babies really had nowhere to go at the end. I still can't believe I carried them so long (38 weeks!)

Yikes, good to know. I am 5'8" so I have the extra space and will refrain from further bra complaints for another couple of weeks! Blum 3

Sports bras were my friend in the end. Much more comfortable.

Slightly different, but I did have 4 baby feet under my right ribcage. They kicked and pushed against there so much I could not sit up w/o back pain (because I sat funny to compensate for the pain there) and seriously, for at least 4mo after my ribs were bruised. lol

Haha, oh man, these are the complaints we can hold over their head at family functions when they're 30, right?
