Now this is baby number two but I never paid attention to the way my body looked early on in the first pregnancy. I'm not sure if its just me or if this is everyone but my belly sits low. From the side its very full. Even though I'm looking five months pregnant I just feel that my belly is really low.

Is this normal for all of us or does it depends on where the baby is?

I think it kind of depends on your body.

I've had a big belly since I was 11 weeks pregnant lol my belly set high with dd but I only remember that from when I was really big... early on I don't recall. I guess time will tell if it will rise

With my first, a girl, I carried very high. It didn't matter what angle you looked at me from you knew I was pregnant. With my second, a boy, I carried very low and even at 6 months pregnant you could barely tell I was pregnant. With this one I am carrying high again and wide. We're not finding out the gender though so I guess I'm going to have to go with the old wives' tales and assume it might be a girl.

I'm definitely carrying just like I did 8 years ago with my son, very low and in front. I don't really look pregnant at all, just chubby. I remember going to the birthing classes at 7/8 months pregnant the first time around and my first husband saying, "what in the heck? Why do these other women look like they're carrying basketballs under their shirts and you just look a little chubby??"

Granted, I'm only thirteen weeks (or not even if you go by the mw's count) but there's only one place for me to carry: out!

I feel very high and full. I'm just now starting to show and still feel like I just look chunky most days but it's like my whole abdomen. I have a feeling this one I am going to be very uncomfortable very early, I'll manage but I'm afraid I will need honest assistance from dh in shaving, toenail painting, etc. lol

That's awesome! But be careful with dh, I had dh help me shave a certain area cause I can't see below my belly. Let's just say I ended up having a big purple band aid lol that fool cut me, it was small but I still made him feel bad lol
