My Belly Is Going To EXPLODE

Chrissy - May 6

Just was out running some errands and decided to pick up some Culver's Chicken tenders for supper. I ate only ate of them, and now I am sooooo full that I feel like my skin is going to tear WIDE open and everything is going to spill out! I can't believe how much I have been feeling like this the last few weeks, whenever I eat, I get such a tight belly and feel like I am going to burst! This is soooo annoying! Not to mention that it makes it almost impossible to breathe! Sorry, just had to vent~!

HI Krista-lee. I'm 36 weeks. Must be the joys of the last month! It's been over 2 hours now since I ate and I am just NOW starting to feel like I can breathe again and that my belly won't erupt! Ugh! I am really going to have to remember to just pick at food from now on and not eat a whole "meal" because I just cant stand it! I also noticed today that my bras are getting really tight around my chest making it hard to breathe~ what the heck???!!!! I was driving home from my errands and reached back and unclasped it so it wasn't suffocating me!

oh god, bras! ive permanently switched to sports bras or shirts with bras in them because the bra wont hook, and when i buy a bigger bra, the cups are too big! and i cant breath wearing the smaller ones either. and underwires are a big pain in the b___t lol. it helps a lot that my babys droped, that that doesnt stop him/her from taking a few nice kicks under my ribs! i almost got the wind knocked out of me!

Get a bra extender - they're lifesavers before the baby drops. Incidentally, my bra suddenly fitting again was my first clue the baby HAD dropped...

usually when the baby drops it gets better and you can eat again .....


AML - May 8 that a resturant? Chrissy where do you live?

Yep Culvers is a fast food restaurant. (I know I shouldn't be eating bad for me food, but I couldn't help it!!!) I live in Wisconsin, how about you??

I'm 33 weeks only and I do feel like my tummy is going to explode after I have my lunch/dinner. and yes, breathing gets difficult too. Bras have gotten tighter as well around the rib cage!! I ended up buying ones without underwire (read it somewhere when I first learnt I was pregnant). Bra extenders..i've not seen them before. Where do you get them? And how much do they cost typically? I don't want to be spending a fortune(not that I haven't already!) for items that I'd only use maybe 5-6 weeks tops!

OMG..Chrissy, I love Culvers! You just gave me the biggest craving for their fried cheese curds. I'm an Iowa girl, myself, now living in Texas and have been missing Culvers so much! I know how you feel, too. Whenever I eat now I feel like that part in the old Gremlins movies when the Gremlins got wet and swolled up and hatched. I just don't see how my tummy can get any bigger without something giving.

Chrissy, Hey girl I know how you feel theis is my 4th preg. [3rd was a molar (I was only preg. for 3 1/2 mo.s)/ had 2 other healthy preg.s before that and gave birth to 2 healthy boys.) But anyway...I never had any problems with my boys. I did'nt even get stretchmarks. Lord only knows why I did'nt. Because i am very thin naturally. My normal pre-pregnancy and never had babies yet weight was 126 and I am 5'8". Now I am 29 weeks along with boy #3. And my stomach feels how you described. My skin will hurt so I just keep putting on the lotion. And I will lay down on my side. I am bigger now at 29 weeks than I ever was with my other boys at full term. Plus he moves a lot! I can't believe I have 2 more months to go. I don't mind if I get a stretch mark or two.But I have seen some horrible ones on my sisters and about scary! That was birth control enough for me until I was 23....LOL...
