Is it normal to be to feel too full?

Know it sounds crazy but I feel too full to eat, breathe, drink etc, really feel bloated. Been 3 days now and I'm trying my best to eat and drink as much as I can but I just feel too full. 35 weeks but bump measuring 39. Really feel uncomfortable

I didn't have that feeling as my baby was partly engaged from week 32. My friends however did, and when the baby finally dropped they experienced what is called lightening and the full feeling went.

Check with your midwife though if you are concerned

Like apple I've never had that as both times baby has been engaged from 30 weeks (sometimes wish I did, it might stop me stuffing my face!) but I think it's common towards the end as your stomach is pretty squished!

I've had this since about 22 weeks,
but I'm very small, so I think there just isn't room for food. I haven't gained any weight since the first trimester due to finding it hard to eat much, so I'm glad I gained a stupid amount then!

I eel like this, at 34 wks. Baby is breech, appears to be laying diagonally across so no room at all. Also measuring ahead slightly by MW has said this is due to the way baby is positioned, if it was head down i would measure smaller.

I have this too, 32 weeks measuring 33 and feel short of breath and full really quickly when eating. I think as PP said it helps when the baby engages.

Thank you, it's my 3rd baby but I've never felt like this. Mw thought mine was breech last week so will see next mon, he was head down from 28 weeks so I'm hoping he's not turned. He might not engage till labour as I've had previous babies so I'll just have to hope. Thank you all for replying....oh the joys. Good luck to you all xx

Can't face eating, drinking, can't tie up shoelaces on trainers or pull tights on! Hoping baby drops a little soon
