  • You have to remember that with every week that passes the baby has less and less room. One thing my mother, grandmother, and sisters ALL told me- at 27 weeks your not even pregnant yet- I never understood those words until I hit 33 weeks and started to waddle, hurt all the time, and have hard times breathing and what not- The more pregnant you get, the more those little uncomfortable things happen- you will notice more and more discomforts in the weeks ahead, usually normal- If your ever worried thou, there is NO harm in calling your doctor, and asking them about it. Good luck, and enjoy the rest of pregnancy, not to much time left now (thou-it will feel like FOREVER!)

  • its normal and will probably get worse as you progress. There's a lot more weight and stretching going on now, so you're going to feel it more.
