But I look like I am much further along, does that qualify me to be here? . I could pass as a May due date, I think. Here I am over a week ago:

hehe you look more pregnant then me and im 9th may!! ha.. :P have u had an ultrasound? (recently i mean.. obviously u had an early one..)
I have a tipped uterus too, although I think my big belly is more from having 4 pregnancies in 4 years of marriage. I am due 2 days after our fourth wedding anniversary.
Wow Bailey, you two have had a very busy and productive marriage! Congrats :)
Kitteh - rock on for running like you do, that is awesome!
I currently weigh what I did at 38 wks with DD, boo. But I don't feel that much bigger, I was just much younger then and started off at a lower weight. I think I'm up about 17 at this point and only gained 20 with DD, so this will just be different. I am letting go of the number worry, there is not much I can do about that! I think the extra weight may be a good thing as I was getting too thin from nursing when DD was about 7 months, my body could hardly keep up and I was getting too skinny. A mama needs some good stores to take care of that baby!
Each of the bra measurements gave me very different sizes, ugh! I think I need to just go try on a bunch, even tho I hate the thought of it.
Loving these gorgeous mamas and bellies!
(yes i do have 2 bellybuttons.. lol ones from a feeding tube i used to have!)
lisathena, there is no way you're up 20 lbs. I don't believe you!!
ok, I believe you... but SERIOUSLY? where are you hiding it? I don't see anything about you that looks puffy! You look amazing!
(also what does "Wait for SFG"mean?)
I'm up 21 lbs in close to 25 weeks (it'll probably be 22 lbs at 25 weeks if my lb a week trend continues). For a while I couldn't tell where I was putting it aside from boobs and extra blood/fluids for baby but I think my hips and upper thighs are a bit bigger now. I do not like it one bit. I think I've popped so at least it looks more like baby instead of too many cheeseburgers but I really feel fat and unattractive. My maternity pants don't help either as they give me love handles thanks to the demi band.
LOL LOL yes i started out at 125 and i think i am close to 145! I am 5'6 so idk not that tall...and my legs and hips are bigger/wider...which i dont mind i always wanted bigger hips/butt/ thighs....
but yup up more than i normally am by now...must be baby #5 such a weird pregnancy!
And SFG stands for Strong First Girya (my husband wants to get certified, but cant...its the weekend b4 we are due w/ baby!) so he put w8 4 sfg on the wall...i didnt see it until afterwards LOL
This was taken last weekend when we took a mini holiday to a hotel with a pool. It has been sooo cold here (Canada) it felt good to stay in and be warm and go swimming. Even went down the water slide a few times with my 5 year old. I am 26 weeks and had gained 12 pounds total at my last appointment with the midwife.
im up 21lbs (maybe 22 now) at 26 weeks... also all on my hips thighs (not good when your stuck in a wheelchair) i think a lot of the weight is fluid.. but still.. :S yuk!
I think I recall reading somewhere that fat stores on the hips and bum are supposed to be optimal for supporting and maintaining a plentiful milk supply. So maybe it's all for a really good reason!
