Wearing BIG baby while pregnant, what should i buy?

I'm about 4 weeks pregnant and am already feeling the bloat and my ergo is getting really uncomfortable to wear my 25 lb. 8 month old. What should I look into buying? He is no longer comfortable to wear in the front but the back carry is what is hurting my tummy because I can get it low enough in the front!

I've got a mei tai and wear it high on the front above the bump. I wore it with my 3 year old when pregnant until about 7 months when I started to get some funny looks. My 3yo does walk, just his afternoon nap is sometimes in a sling if we are out and about. It folded up small enough to fit in my bag.

I'm 22 weeks pregnant and wear my 2 year old in a woven wrap on my back. Rucksack tied at the chest with a chestbelt.

I'm 27 weeks and still wear my 22 lb 18 month old DD in our Boba on my back comfortably. I know the Boba is longer than the Ergo, so maybe it would work better for you than the Ergo? I can still sling her off to my side too, though I prefer the Boba, so maybe a ring sling would be another option?

I got a Toddler/Plus Kinderpack and it is AMAZING. Way, way more comfortable than my Ergo for carrying my 32.7lb, 37" toddler. I walk to the library and yoga every week with her on my back (I'm 10wks preggo) and I hardly feel her at all.
