Ok...just being totally silly, but I have the BIGGEST boobs compared to the rest of me (so I've been told). Just wanted to hear where you all stand when it comes to the boob and belly race (meaning which one is farther out front?). We'll see how we are again in 10 weeks!! BTW...my boobs are winning even though my belly is big for me!!

Well, there is no way my boobs could compete with this belly. I don't think it's physically possible.

If I don't pay attention to my posture, my belly wins. But if I draw my abs in, my boobs win. So I voted for a tie! I hope in ten weeks, the belly will be winning - I'm looking forward to when I pop.

Is this when the boobs are hanging naturally, and propped up in a bra?

My boobs are working on catching up, but I think in the end it will be the belly that wins.

I voted belly, but I measured last night and both are at 41 inches! I also noticed this morning that my boobs now extend out past the sides of my body! They are like freaking bowling balls!

My boobs haven't really grown much, they were already a good size before so I'm hoping they'll stay that way. My belly has a good 3-4 inches on them.

My boobs are huge so it takes a long while before the belly catches up. I need to be at least 7 months along before I can look down and see belly sticking out past the breasts. LOL!

My definition of showing is when my belly sticks out further than my F-G cup breasts (H when I'm nursing). This time it happened at about 20 weeks, which is later than the last two times. But the belly is definitely winning now at 24 weeks.

I voted "huh?" cause I thought it was a silly question, LOL.

But anyway, my boobs definitely "popped" or in other words got bigger in size WAY before my belly finally "popped" but now of course my belly is bigger and sticking out more than my boobs. It seems like my boobs really knew what to do this second time around, I don't even remember my boobs growing in size during my first pregnancy until right before my son was born. This time my quickly growing boobs were the first real tell-tale sign that I was pregnant! It is said that every pregnancy is different and I sure have been finding it true!

The girls haven't gotten any bigger (as if they aren't big enough already!!), but the belly's poking out a lot more than a few weeks back. I still haven't had a stranger notice I'm pregnant yet, but give it a few more weeks and I'll have popped out more! DH took my 25 week pictures a few days ago and i totally have the belly now

Belly...this is a no-brainer for me. I don't think my boobs have grown at all...DH was looking forward to that too...poor him.

I'm actually surprised that my belly is bigger than my boobs. It's kind of nice not having my boobs be the biggest part of my body for once!
