Shannon: yeah i hope the baby keeps all her weight right there!! I bet you don't even show the other 6 lbs!! Thats the tough part tho....keeping it steady.....course my house is almost devoid of choc. and such things right now...that helps alot..

The belly may be cute under the shirt but those previous stretch marks are getting painful...anyone else have their stretch marks hurting already? I have no idea what I am going to do with them...Any ideas? What are you/will you do about those marks? Mine didn't seem to fade at ALL last time....and i used to have such a good body.....oh so off topic but i think some guy actually "checked me out" a few days ago...thought that was odd...no one checks me out w/ds let alone pg!! Ok so I am completely rambling...what happened to a chat thread?

A couple more for the belly gallery. Today at 26 weeks.

I am still obsessing about whether I could possibly have twins again. Very unlikely. But that is my only experience. It is hard to fathom anything else. I am often tempted to have an u/s to find out for sure. But then I would just have to find some other pregnancy obsession.

Anyway, I think my belly is huge, but like last time, no one else seems to think so. (Okay, last time one person did ask me if I had a basketball under my shirt, and another asked me how many I had in there. But I discounted both of their comments for different reasons.) In one picture I am clearly letting it all hang out. I mean I can suck a lot of it in too. But then my god when I sit down it seems to protrude out a foot in front of me.

Anyway, it has been great to see everyone else's bellies. Very beautiful. Helps me stop obsessing for a bit.

By the way, these are my first pics posted to mdc. Not sure if I am just paranoid...or shy...or superstitious...But, here goes.

I swear, and I'm not exaggerating here, that I have heard at least 15 times this pregnancy "Are you sure it's not twins?" Sounds to me like "wow Lisa, you look like the side of a barn". I was actually starting to wonder if there are twins in there, but then I came to my senses. Here's my first try at posting belly shots...here we go: http://www.cartershots.shutterfly.com let me know if it worked

Piper's mama--My belly looks quite similar to yours, and as far as we know there's only one in there

I keep bugging DH to bring home the cable so I can post my pics...maybe this week *sigh*

did you see my side shot? I think we look a lot alike, I may even be bigger. Both pics were at 27 weeks...take a look at mine, it'll make you feel better.
I was about 158 when I got pregnant this time. I had lost all of my other baby weight, and was planning on losing 10 more lbs. but it didn't happen. I gained 45lbs the first time, I'm already up 23 this time. I'm hoping to only get to 35, but we'll see what happens :

mary you look great. your ahead of me and smaller.

pipers mamma you are smaller than me but you are behind me so you might be in the basketball belly group

I weighed 137 when i got pg this time (i was 122 the lowest EVER in YEARS when i got pg with ds....) I lost 7 due to morning sickness but i count from 130 cause its actual baby weight and i had been TRYING to get those last 10-15 lbs off (well wishing...) and besides i would rather be 130 prepregnancy anyways!! hehehe. i was at 149 at my appt. on the first...haven't weighed myself since.....

You have to upload it onto an online photo-sharing site first... such as

www.snapfish.com

www.flikr.com

www.photobucket.com

After you follow the instructions and upload the pics, you will be able to see URLs which you can copy and paste into your message!

I just got weighed at my appointment yesterday and I have gained 9 lbs in the last month :

I started at 134 lbs and weighed 158 lbs yesterday, so that is a total of 24 lbs gained so far.

With DD, I started at 125 lb and was 165 lb when I delivered, so I gained a total of 40 lbs.
