Re: Carrying really low this time.....normal?

I am carrying this baby a lot lower than I carried DD, but I just thought it was because this was the 2nd baby and everything is more stretched out in there. He is constantly kicking me in my bladder and I try to watch my belly for kicks, but they are so low and at the bottom of my belly that I cannot see them! My midwife said that it was normal to carry 2nd (and subsequent) babies lower than the first, so hopefully it's nothing.

Thanks for the reassurances ladies

I'll definitely bring it up at my appointment. It's crazy because I can't even sit up straight without tons of pressure and feeling like I'm squishing my poor baby.
I've tried wearing the support belt that I wore with DD, but it doesn't seem to fit correctly because of how low she is. I'll try a tip I found last night about laying down to put it on though... I'm just afraid it'll squish her
