Hear, hear, Kateniki! I am proud of my big belly. Even when I have trouble breathing...

16 pounds here - at 29 weeks... But I started above my ideal weight, so I'm trying to keep one eye on scale while feeding my body everything it needs for the babe...

I'm short, so I think my belly looks bigger than it really is. I'm measuring at a normal size.
Hah! The joke is on me! I just found out Wednesday that I'm actually having TWINS!!! It wasn't just me, my belly IS big! They didn't weigh me at that last appointment, though, so I don't know how much I weigh right now.

Ay 26 weeks, I am down about four pounds. I did this last pg and at the end, I think I had gained only 6-8 pounds overall. I am a good60 pounds overweight to begin with, so it's not a big deal. I am not trying to lose - I think it's just because I am eating better and am losing the weight I gained from unhealthy eating habits prior to being pg.

Finally....I've been gaining an average of 10 lbs per month for the last couple of months. Had an appt.yesterday, and I only gained 6 this month! Woohoo!!! Somehow my body used those cookie calories up. Just think how much less I would have gained if I hadn't eaten all that sugar!

Had my midwife appt. today, and it looks like I guessed right: I'm up 9 pounds from my starting weight. Gained 6 lbs. in the past 4 weeks. So if I keep it up, I should gain enough by 38 weeks. Yay!

I had gained about 20 in the first 27 weeks, but I notice that with 12 weeks to go and not really changing anything, its really starting to pick up....I think I gained almost 2 pounds just since my appointment last Thursday. If it continues I should be right on target.

Please, please let it not be a 10 pound baby!
