caitlinsmom Posted June 16, 2009 Share Posted June 16, 2009 (edited) I didnt read the other thread all the way so I hope this isnt the way it was going and this is a repeat. I am a petite 5'3 with only about 1.5 inch between my bottom rib and my hip bones. During pregnancy when I finally start showing I start SHOWING! Seriously it is freakish how my stomach contorts to give the baby room. I carry clear up under my chin because there is no where else to go! (Its bad..um.. my booKs kind of seperate to allow for my stomach to move up!!!! At least that is what it looks like anyway! lol I cant believe I am going to post that.). I have no extra room and by 9 months it is obvious. My best friend on the other hand is 5'7 and is long waisted. She shows earlier than I do but it is always a nice managable bump that grows in a nice proportionate way. She never looks uncomfortable, she can always breath comfortable (well who can really breath right at 9 months!), and she can walk with out doing back bends. Its unfair really but its the way it is. :) So tell me am I the only one (because I rarely see anyone like me) who has to become a contortionist to carry a baby somewhat comortably? Whats your body shape and how do you carry normally? Edited June 16, 2009 by caitlinsmom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
