Sorry posted too soon. Couldn't reach a consensus when discussing this earlier.

36 weeks onwards

My DP said the whole of the last trimester

36 weeks plus but I know people who class the 3rd trimester as "heavily pregnant.

No idea. Last pregnancy, I sat downstairs at the front of buses at 20 weeks as I struggled going upstairs and this time I'm happily going upstairs on buses at 30 weeks.

About 34 weeks onwards - depends on how you’re carrying tbh - I have talk friends who had so much more space in their body than me who didn’t look ‘heavily pg’ until 38 weeks!

I'm 32 weeks but measuring 36 (scan tomorrow), and this is the first week I have felt heavily pregnant, not helped by worrying about the rate my bump is growing and what the scan will show up :-(

usernameinfinito Wed 13-Dec-17 20:27:15

I was described as being ‘heavily pregnant’ at 5 months. I guess it depends how you carry.

Eryri I know it's so hard not to panic, but honestly try not too. I have measured small with one and bigger with the other. They were only a couple of ounces difference between them at birth! These things aren't always accurate, they're just a guideline. I hope all is well with your scan, and try to enjoy the rest of the pregnancy. X

I always think that term is different for every pregnant women. I say it means when you suddenly feel heavy and struggle with going up the stairs/walking too far/struggling in general. It's kind of like if I see a lady waffling and taking deeper breaths holding her back etc I'd say she's heavily pregnant xx

7+ months

NotAgainYoda Wed 13-Dec-17 20:34:24

7+ months, in my case. 8+ months on average.

HappyAndRelaxed Wed 13-Dec-17 20:46:54

To me, heavily pregnant would be about how pregnant looking a woman is and the shape of her bump instead of how many weeks pregnant they are. When my friend was pregnant with twins she started showing really early and she looked heavily pregnant by about 27 weeks. She looked bigger then than I looked when I was 39 weeks pregnant. shock

I said 30 weeks but I suppose a lot on your shoulders size! I’m 5ft 2 and dh is 6ft 2. I had very looooog babies and I felt like I had a very large octopus in my stomach from about 30 weeks. hmm. A taller person may not have felt like that.

LizzieSiddal Wed 13-Dec-17 21:03:20

I meant *depends on your size.
