  • with my third baby (my only girl) i never swelled or waddled or anything the whole pregnancy (and i was due in mid sept. so i was really far along in the summer). with my first i blew up like a tick around 27 weeks and i found out it was because i had pre-eclampsia, so i wasn't waddling anywhere (bedrest lol), but i looked like i was going to explode. with my second i got pretty big around 21 weeks and was waddling shortly thereafter lol. gee i do not miss being pregnant!

  • With my first two I was pregnant in the hottest part of summer and I was swollen a lot from very early on....I tried hard not to waddle...hahahaha

    With this one...I am 34 almost 35 weeks and I am just now starting to notice a tiny bit of puffy-ness....nothing bad at all....and I still am refusing to

    I told my friend if I was waddling to tell me and I would stop...hahahaha

  • baby #1 was born 10/30 in Minnesota and it had already been either snowy or at least icy for like a month..... I looked like a big fat penguin waddling along, trying sooooo hard not to slip and fall on my bab

  • I never swelled with any of mine. I would waddle around 36 wks. I would go see your doctor and ask about the swelling. If it's so bad that you can't take off your wedding rings then there might be something wrong.
