    Default How are you carrying?

    Im just supprised at how differntly im carrying my 2nd bub compared to my first. I was carrying high with DD, she was all up top, suffered bad heartburn and chest tightenings. I put weight on all over and my belly was oval shaped towards the very end.
    This time ive had people say i am carrying very low. Im all out front and very round. I feel bub's movement down low and harldy ever up around my ribs. I havent really put on alot of weight anywhere else -from what i can tell.
    Doesn anyone know what determines they way you are carrying?

    I think it's stomach muscles! The tighter they are, the higher you carry.

    I seem to be carrying quite high this time, but it's not due to strong stomach muscles that's for sure.
    DD1 was more round and out in front and DD2 was similar but i carried a bit lower.
