Just for fun, thought we'd measure around our bellies--at the navel...

I have gained 18lbs now and I am 45" around...so I've gained about 15" !!!!

Anyone else?

I'm 43.5" and I stopped weighing myself after I had gained almost 40lbs.

I have gained about 15.5".

Ok, I feel huge! I'm 44 1/2in. to 45in. And I've gained at least 40#. So I guess I'm right around 30wks. and huge.

44.5" at almost 30 weeks. I've gained 12 pounds so far. I don't think I look that big.

I'm measuring at about 43.5". I lost a lot of weight during the first half and have now gained that back and reached eight pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight.
