I measured 53 cm at 38 weeks and had 14 pounds, 11 ounces of baby inside me. I think I gained close to 80 pounds, but a lot of that was water at the end (I lost 50 pounds in the first few days). Even though I was huge and uncomfortable at the end, I had no trouble getting around, grocery shopping, etc. I was trying to go into labor for the last couple of weeks, and I was doing LOTS of walking, going up and down a bazillion flights of stairs, etc.
Although when we went to the hospital to have the babies (scheduled c-section for breech twins), I thought I would walk all the way up to labor and delivery, but ended up opting for a wheelchair instead. I was really done.
Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 5, 6, 8, 9, 11 & 11) in a small house with a lot of love.
