Rozzie- I am due May 14th. That pic was 29 Weeks 1 Day but I was too lazy to write the 1 Day- lol. Is that your due date? I will be having the baby early though- if I go into labour naturally at 37-38 weeks then I can attempt a VBAC and if not, he's a scheduled section right after the 38 week mark. You look way better than me at 29 weeks! Again, I LOVE your belly- it's my dream belly :)

Janelle- remember when you wanted a belly so bad... now you have a beautiful belly!!!! Great pictures!

post #323 of 442

yes! May 14! I know I'll be jealous of you at 38 weeks winky.gif

I was at the airport yesterday and I saw another pregnant woman - she was 31+ weeks and so tiny. It is so funny how different our bodies are. You look amazing, Linnie - and baby #3! Incredible!

Awe thanks :) When I was at the hospital with the kidney stone, I was 24 weeks and the women coming in to deliver were smaller than me! That's so cool that it's May 14th- I love the sound of that date. I get caught up in the sound of the birthdate if that makes any sense. My DD was born on her due date and I was very comfortable with that date- November 28 and we were given a choice for my son and I like Oct 1 (our wedding anniversary is the 2 and my bday is exactly one month later- Nov 1). I have been looking at our schedules for this baby and I want either May 5 or 9th BUT I love May 14th most of all.

Yes haha!!  Now I am getting all tired carrying this big guy around LOL!  But I do love having a belly and not just looking "fat" that's for sure.  :)  30 weeks today!  I can't believe I am so big, and can't imagine how much farther it will go lol...

I am hitting that stage where I am rapidly getting 'over' being pregnant because I am getting so uncomfortable right now. 2 more months sounds like an eternity at this rate.

post #327 of 442

I am just on the brink of being really uncomfortable. I know it's right around the corner. I still feel "mostly" ok. I do keep dreaming about slipping into my regular jeans. I actually see my old body in a mirror in my dreams. I never had a rockin' body but after baby number two, I was my thinnest ever in size 27 jeans and I keep dreaming about that! I was just at old navy and they have their spring line out and it's all pretty sundresses and I couldn't be more excited! I am thinking that navigating my way through the "fourth" trimester in a cute, colourful sundress and cardigan will make me feel a little better and they are easy to nurse in!

I sometimes dream about prepregnancy body too - I have to say being so pregnant always makesme appreciate the pre pregnancy body so much more... (it's also sad, that I never appreciated it before...but that's for another thread!)

I was just thinking today about how much I appreciate my pre-preg body now that I'm so bloated and squishy-feeling. hopefully once this is all over, I won't complain/fuss as much!

Me too!  I'm starting to feel the pelvic pressure, and I'm pretty sure I'm starting to waddle.  Definitely walking slower.  We went to a science expo last night at DD's school and it was so crowded.  I kept bumping into people with my belly.  lol

 

I also plan on wearing cute dresses as much as possible all summer.  They're just so easy, and can hide a lot of lumps.  I do feel really lucky though, I haven't noticed any weight gain anywhere other than my belly and boobs.  That could still change, of course.

Anybody want to link to some of those "cute dresses"?  I'm having a hard time coming up with options I like. :)

30 weeks preggers 2.jpg

 

Here I am at 30 weeks pregnant in the bathroom at work ~ a bunch of coworkers commented on how gigantic I looked that day, so I decided to take a quick picture with my phone. Yep, I'm enormous. 

As for cute dresses, I have a few from Target - not maternity, but regular cotton sundresses, and they are on sale right now for $15 in a lot of different colors. I have been wearing them over leggings with cardigans when it is cool out. I really want to get some more cute dresses and maternity clothes for spring but I am not going to let myself spend money on that -- I just have to make it through 9 weeks and 5 days with what I have :-)

post #333 of 442

Meredith, if by "enormous" you mean totally gorgeous and adorable, then yes, I agree orngbiggrin.gif

Awww thanks Rozzie! <3

Here I am at 29 weeks and 3 days. Shay is now 4 months old, he weighs 18 lbs 2.5 oz as of 3/1 and is 26" tall. 

 

DP thinks its funny how wide open my mouth is here.

And some Johnny Jump Up cuteness. He is finally heavy enough to touch the ground in it.

So here I am at 28 weeks (taken sometime last week?).  I feel like it's been forever since I updated, but we have been so busy lately.  This was taken pretty spur of the moment and I was SO tired.  Anyhow, I'm sure you all don't mind the tired eyes :)

Casmer, you look BEAUTIFUL!!! You are just glowing! I'm jealous of your shiny hair - my hair has been so lifeless and dull this whole pregnancy!

Here I am a few days ago, 29 weeks or so. Trying to remember to take pictures each week at this point, but I've been pretty neglectful of it so far! My son woke up at 5:35 this morning for lord knows what reason, which means that I've been up since then too (husband is out of town this week for work). Have spent a very satisfying 30 minutes or so looking through this thread...everyone is looking so beautiful! Yay, bellies!
