Can you still cross your legs without discomfort?

Are you still sitting ladylike or you given up?

Fun fact: Crossing you legs at the knee is not considered ladylike in polite company, it's actually considered man-ish or even fast. Crossing demurely at the ankle is the correct way to do it. LOL

 I can not cross my legs the most comfortable way to sit right now is cris cross applesauce.  I even have a hard time just sitting with both feet on the floor.  I keep telling myself only a few more weeks only a few more weeks only a few more weeks.

I still do it often (habit I guess) but as a PP said my legs go numb fairly quickly, it is more comfortable now to sit with my legs as far apart as possible.
I'm 40 weeks today.
