20 weeks and already waddling?!

20 weeks and already waddling?!

Ummm, anyone else?  My weight gain is in normal range (8 lbs) and I started out average, but I'm only 5'3".  Even people at work have been commenting on it!  I'm gonna be as big as a house!

 

Re: 20 weeks and already waddling?!

  • I've been waddling for a few weeks now. For me it has nothing to do with the belly--it's my pelvis/hips and lower back that are KILLING me

    This.

    My sciatic nerve is in constant pain. It makes me waddle like crazy.

  • Oh I've been waddling for awhile!  I'm carrying twins and have already gained 21 pounds.  My back and feet are killing me this week which doesn't help my already waddling gait.

    Same!
  • So far I have put on 12lbs and i'm waddling too. I looked myself over in the mirror today and i'm shocked at how big I am! I can't imagine how huge i'm going to be by the end of this!
  • Gotta love that relaxin lets your body get nice and comfy in any way possible!
  • I guess it is a combination of the achy tailbone, sore ligaments (I suppose) and the relaxin just letting it all hang out.  I'm glad I'm not some kind of freak show and we are all in the same boat - misery loves company Smile

    I have a nice waddle, up 19lbs with twins. I think I'm done with heels too, just don't want to mess with it.

    This. I'm almost 22 weeks. 5'2 and have also gained about 8 lbs. Bending over is getting obnoxious. But the waddling is because of back pain and such.

  • Yep I'm waddling too. And struggling to get out of DH's low sports car too.

    Oh my god - I know! I have a Mini Cooper and it is a struggle to get out of and getting harder every day.  I know I will be trading it in for a more family friendly car, but I may be doing it sooner than later.

    This is me too. I feel ridiculous to be walking with a waddle but my hips on the Right side is just killing me. It just started up last week and my hand on that side has started to go numb too.

    Me too. I had hip problems with my first but it started later than this. I'm already looking for a new chiropractor.

  • I don't feel like I'm waddling but the other day H said "If it looks like a momma and smells like a momma, and waddles like a duck.... it must be a momma!"  Thanks babe!
