You are carrying differently! I look different this time around than I did the first time and I've got a girl instead of a boy. Even if I hadn't found out the gender I think I would have known just based on how I'm carrying.
34 weeks! And I'm only 4 days late this time.
I love seeing everyone's comparison photos! Since I don't have a previous pregnancy to compare to, I will say that I finally understand why ancient fertility figures look the way they do - I feel like I'm all boobs, belly, and hips!! So here's a nice Venus of Willdendorf for you, for my comparison photo.
I'll be interested to see if the old "carry high and in front = boy, carry low and wide = girl" thing carries any weight for me. Last time I carried like it was a boy, but had a girl. This time I'm carrying identically (albeit I'm a little bigger in general) and the midwife is certain it's a boy because of my ovulation/conception dates. We shall see!
Okay I know I haven't posted in this thread before - my phone takes kinda crappy pictures and I can't get far enough away from ANY mirror in our house to get me all in - but I'm just so happy with my new green dress I thought I would. And as a bonus I dug up the ONLY picture I have of me with DD from 7 years ago, which illustrates the difference between now and then pretty well!
So that's me now, at 36 weeks. Here's me, 7 years ago (about 10-15 lbs lighter, pre-pregnancy) at 38 weeks:
OMG my tummy is SO much smaller there!
Ha, y'all probably thought I was imaginary up til now.
The pumpkin shirt was actually one of the nicest sweaters I had, with felt eyes etc. taped on. I bought it specifically so I could be a pumpkin for hallowe'en (one of my life's goals, believe it or not) but I wore it ALL the time because it fit well and was super-comfy. I lost track of the shirt when I lent it to someone (can't remember who) and I've missed it ever since.
