Wide Load Belly Picture


With 3.5 months left (yes, the baby WILL come one week early, I've already told her so) I'm starting to wonder if I can possibly get any bigger. (sigh) I know the answer to that question already so you don't need to tell me yes. At my doctor's appointment this week, which is my 24 week check up, I was suppose to measure 24 cm. Nope, I measured 26. Even the doctor exclaimed, "whoa!" as he measured me. 
Stepping on the scale was rather upsetting. I briefly thought about divulging how much weight I've gained but decided to maintain some dignity. Still, I've gained a lot! Not that all the chocolate and big yummy sugar cookies with that yummy frosting from the bakery at the grocery store had anything to do with that. (cough cough) Did I just admit that?
Anyway.... 
I feel like I'm nine months pregnant. The pressure and the back pain, how uncomfortable and big I feel. Truly, women amaze me when they say they love being pregnant, or even that they don't mind it! A lady in my ward said that to me the other day, that she loved it. I sort of just stared at her in disbelief. 
I will say that I am excited for a baby and for another girl. I was looking at all the cute baby girls clothes and I just couldn't help but get excited! 
Still, I think I'll vote for a stork next time. Where did that stork idea come from anyway?

wide load... silly you. Have you looked at the rest of your body besides your belly?? Are you remembering it's normal to get a belly when you're pregnant? Give yourself a break and don't beat yourself up!

Wide load nothing!! You look good. But everyone told me that when I was pregnant and I felt like a hippo!

I had gained 35 lbs by 7 months--but I've only gained a few since then. Thank goodness. :-P
