My Ribs Can T Stretch Anymore

I'm 28 wks today. Anyone else have pain under the ribcage? I think I get it more because I sit eight hours at work but man, some days it just pinches!!!! I don't think I have anymore room for this baby to grow! I'm already popped out quite a bit! Where else can I get bigger??? Someone said, oh you haven't dropped yet, just wait. I've noticed I like to wear all my jeans under my belly. So when you "drop" does that get all filled in? How does that work? It's my first so I have no clue! I just hope it relieves some of this of this pressure! To make myself feel better I went to Shopko and hit the maternity clearance racks and found a whole bunch of cute maternity tops that tie in the back so you don't look so frumpy and some cute cargo pants and jean pants that didn't have that huge pouch in the front. Just like half a band. They're so comfy and I feel so much better when I walk out the door for work. I don't feel like such a blob in stuff that fits and looks nice. Everyone comments I look so cute pregnant. WHATEVER!!! Either they're just being nice, or I do look good. Who knows! I feel huge.

I'm 33 weeks, and every day I think I don't have any more space, but some how the baby keeps growing!!! I also feel preasure on my ribs, it gets worse every day... Be patient!!!

I am 35 weeks and felt the same way... How could I possibly get any bigger, and OMG, I keep getting bigger! I have begun to drop a bit, and all my pants are below the waist, too. So, perhaps it's poor engineering, but that does pose a problem. Every time I stand up or walk two steps I need to hike them up again. And I am worrying that the waistband will hurt the baby. With such a small amount of time left (hopefully!) I don't want to run out and buy more clothes! I wil just suffer through for a few more weeks. Hang in there, Heidi!

Try the pants with the big pouch in the front. I have two pair and hate them but I figure once the waistband won't fit under my belly anymore, I'll have to resort to these. I a__sume once the baby drops I'll have to wear the other ones. I too have to kind of hike mine up after sitting but they're so much more comfy than those big pouch pants that go up to your t_ts! They're too warm and feel funny. Yuck! I'd rather wear hipsters and a long shirt!

You know, I have tried so hard to find the good old-fashioned pouch pants. Believe it or not, I have not been able to find them anywhere!! Just the low wide waist bands and the regular zipper fly. Go figure... I wish I could wear a moomoo to work.
