Anyone else feeling the spread?

The other day I was on my feet ALLLLL day (more than 12 hrs) and by 9pm when I finally got to sit down, I felt really achy and heavy down there. Almost like I did PP with my second. I'm also feeling this extreme spreading out every time I need to use the bathroom/sit on the toilet. I never felt anything like this after my first, granted he was a c/s. I didn't know if it was just me being stretched out from delivering a big baby or if this is pretty common after vaginal births?

I have been feeling a little like this when I'm on my feet for a while, so I know exactly what you mean. I don't think it has anything to do with the size of the baby or the birth, really, because I had a relatively easy birth and a smallish baby

I think this baby is going to come early, b/c it already feels like he is going to just fall out.

Harmony - you are having a boy right? I felt that way with DS... literally thought his arm was just going to fall right out!!! Not so much with this baby here but it is early for me to feel that way... however I am higher IMO than I was with DS

Re: Anyone else feeling the spread?

Yes and it's aggravating my hip injury. Even doing the exercises the PT gave me isn't helping. At the end of even a short shift I can't sit or stand w/o pain. The bebe is riding way lower than Gman did.

Yep, another boy. I even have to wrap up my belly for support already, most days. Feels good.

Re: Anyone else feeling the spread?

God yeah, been feeling it for over a week now but it's every time I do anything other than sit very still. Heck, even thinking about it makes it hurt and I don't remember it hurting this much either of my previous pregnancies (and Ducky was so low I was afraid he'd fall out while I walked up the stairs).

But I can't even complain about it out loud as every time I do, Cletus starts kicking me in the bladder and sending me to the bathroom. This child better be at least twice as cute as the other two kids because he's causing way too much trouble already.
