    Does it become uncomfortable to sit?

    I'm almost 36 weeks pregnant and for the last week or so I've only been able to sit on the edge of the sofa or on my ball as it's so uncomfortable to sit straight back in a chair or the sofa.

    I suppose you could describe it as the "bowling ball" feeling and I only seem to be comfy with my legs wide apart. NOT very lady like!! :haha:

    Sounds like it to me! I too have to do the perch on the end of the seat with legs open pose, it's very attractive!!

    Hmm, mine's mostly engaged now (head 2/5 palpable) and I am not comfortable sitting on the sofa at all as it's a bit squishy (the sofa, not the baby!) but am fine sitting on a normal chair or on birthing ball :)
