I am 7 months pregnant with our second son and I feel like I have been pregnant for years. (Maybe it’s because I am chasing around a 13 month old)
I feel like I am the size of a house and growing more each day. It probably doesn’t help that I showed early so 10 months feels like an eternity.
The pregnancy itself has been easy, must like my first. But physically I am frustrated because of how “big” I am and feel. Can anyone else relate?

ME! I’m at 7-ish months, too, and I feel giant. I actually met a woman the other day who is only a week or so behind me, and I thought, “Aha! We’re the same size; I’m not so big after all!” Then she told me she’s been really struggling with gestational diabetes and is much bigger than her other pregnant friends. :/ Even though my weight gain is pretty much spot on with my first pregnancy, I feel much bigger.
Also I think part of it is just that I have so much more running/bending/lifting/etc… to do to keep up with my daughter (she’s almost 20 months), than I did last pregnancy. Last time I was pretty much lounging around at this point, and I can’t do that this time. All this extra running around reminds me of all the stuff I’m struggling to do (like pick up toys from the floor), so I think that’s contributing to how big I feel. I’m also ready to be done, and I still have 8 weeks left. Sigh. I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever, but maybe that’s just because I had two so close together.

Forgot to add: We have a thread going for all of us on our second (or third, fourth, etc…) pregnancies. You should join us!
