That's a nice pic AL! Don't worry about the mirror, it means you take dental hygiene seriously, that's all!

I forgot to say...I love the way Ari responds when my husband and I are talking! We'll just be in bed cuddling and talking and she'll be wiggling around like "Don't forget about me, I'm a part of this too!!"

Oh, I love feeling the baby respond to stuff! Blobby knows the kids voices, and moves a lot when we're in the car.

36 weeks. Blurry because it was taken by my 6 year old ;) 

 

 

Compare though, to how huge I was with my last one at this time!

Two from me this week at 33 weeks. One from after church this morning and one bare belly shot. Five babies worth of stretch marks! Oh well.  Both photos taken by our little girls. Serious growth spurt over the past month! How mush do these babies weigh now anyway?

Amanda, you look so wonderful! Such a glowy, glad look in your eyes. Hooray for braving the bare belly--it's so beautiful. And, are those jeans that BUTTON I see? How, how, how could this be possible?!

 

I had the most amazing mother blessing celebration this weekend! My mother, sister, and three of my aunties, plus DH's aunts and a bunch of friends came, and I was bathed and swathed in love. Best day ever!

 

Here's a photo of the finished belly cast, with the two grandmothers-to-be. My belly bulges much more on the right side, since that's where baby always is, and I'm delighted to say the belly cast is also lopsided. :D

That belly cast looks awesome! I'm so glad you were loved on by so many beautiful women.

 

My pants that button are hand-me-downs from a friend who weighed 30 pounds more than I currently weigh. The are huge and stretchy, that's why they fit, LOL!

I am up 35 pounds, there is NO WAY any of my old jeans fit. Will be a year from now before they do. ;)

 

I'd love to see more growing bellies, ladies. Won't be long now!!

It's funny because I don't feel like the photos -show- much change within the last several weeks, but the weight keeps going up! lol

I loveeeeeee the belly cast, this is my third and I've never done one :(

 

Amanda- I was thinking about pulling out some "before I lost weight jeans" and see if they fit, but they aren't low cut, so I didn't even try.

 

I'm up 42 pounds and so I'm thinking I'll end this pregnancy up about 50. Assuming that 9 pounds of it is baby, it's really daunting to think about losing it all. However, I did come up with a theory on why I gain so much pregnant, it's because I can't drink beer, so I drown my stress and sorrows in chocolate and other delicious carbs. :D

Here's the sneak peek for our family pictures we had done, they turned out great. We got all my brothers and niece and nephew together, it was great. Except my homeless looking brother was still drunk from the night before, and smelled like it. *gags*

Here is a picture from last week (36wks) a few hours before delivery.  Sorry it is blurry.

Here I am today 1 wk postpartum.  I can't believe it has been a whole week.  I am starting to feel like a normal person again (physically) and the swelling in my legs is finally improving.

37w2days. This was after I had taken my hair down for the day, was on my way to get ready for bed, and then went WAIT! I need a comparison picture! lol. But look how pretty baby looks. lol. It's really hitting me these last few days that she is BABY SIZED guys! Like a full sized real person. It's crazy.

And my OB commented on Tuesday that wow I didn't have any stretchmarks. I thought that was a very careless thing to say as an OB, since most experienced mamas know that it a'int over til it's over! lol I'm 38 weeks today- so I still have potentially 4 weeks to gain new ones! And this is when I'll likely get them because she's the biggest, I'm the most stretched, and she's still trying to move around in there and stretching the skin.

You know what though? At this point you might not get much bigger... when the baby drops into your pelvis, you almost shrink back a week or so sometimes. If you do get them, it won't be a ton of them. I haven't gotten any new ones this time, but the first 2 kids broke me in pretty good!

 

Dsb~ you look great!

I'm glad you posted this, mama! I hope others will do the same after they deliver! I am so excited to see my waist again someday. I agree with JJ, you look beautiful!

You are looking really good, mama! Maybe I should "try" to not gain any more weight, cause it is really working for you. ;)

You'll have baby soon! How exciting!

What beautiful bellies!

DSB, that is some serious belly shrinkage for having had two babies inside just a week ago. It feels like it'll be a miracle if my belly is ever the same size as my breasts again (of course it will be!) 

 

JJ, I totally know what you mean! There is a full, baby-sized BABY in there! Holy crap, that's utterly amazing.

This happened to me. I have measuring a week ahead since they started measuring me. I felt the baby shift down (quickening) and next appointment I was measuring 1 week less, or right on schedule how ever you look at it.

I agree,  was gaining a pound a week (even gained ten lbs between two midwife appts...YIKES) but once I hit the 8th month, it totally stopped. I'm so grateful because I wasn't supposed to gain much weight with this pregnancy since I hadn't lost the baby weight from my last pregnancy but I still managed to gain 40lbs yikes...can we have a group to keep us all in touch post partum because this weight has got to go after baby comes....and posting pics and having all your support has been great!!
