  • I would go by what the Dr. says, if you're weight is good according to the Dr. then odds are you're doing fine, as for the baby feeling lower you may be getting close to labor, either way if anything is bothering you or has you worried call the Dr., if nothing else it should make you feel a little better. Good luck!

  • "HAVE TO PUT MY HAND UNDER MY BELLY JUST TO HOLD IT UP AND WALK SO THAT I COULD ATLEAST FEEL A LITTLE COMFORT"


    That's how it was for me toward the end of pregnancy when I would be shopping. If you saw me, I always had my hands under my belly trying to hold it up, lol. I think that is normal. At least, I never thought anything of it.

  • First, have you tried a pregnancy band to help with holding your belly up? It's a strap that goes around the bottom of your belly with straps that helps hold it up... As far as your weight goes, I would listen to your doctor. Overeating will not do you any good - your body will tell you when you need to eat and when you are full - just do what feels right and worry about losing it once the baby is born happy and healthy! Your almost there!
