Don't feel bad. I went to buy some stretch in between pants when I was only 7 weeks along and my butt had grown an entire size. DD was with me when I was trying things on and she went around telling everyone I've got a baby in my bottom too. :

Now, I don't even want to know how much its grown. My maternity pants are 2 sizes bigger than the size I was wearing when I got pg, and I could have gone up another size... if the store carried plus size maternity. So sad.

Its a natural thing though, ligaments soften and hip bones spread to make room for the baby.

Of course, I'm not denying the effect of all those oreos I've eaten. :

Thats what my deal is...my hips are spreading...well they already did pretty much as soon as I got a BFP.

My pre-pg pants still fit but you can tell my hips are wider...and my belly of course.

Every time I say out loud that I am fat, my DD Ashton gets SO MAD AT ME. : "Mommy YOU ARE NOT FAT!!!"

He could have lied.

I technically hadn't gained any weight at my last midwives appt but my clothes don't fit anymore. All of my shorts/pants are getting way too tight.

I totally knew my butt had grown. I went from having little butt, to having a lot of butt. The only thing I hate is that it has cellulite. : Other than that, I'm enjoying my bootylicious-ness.

I also figured out yesterday why I didn't seem to notice that my boobs have grown into a nearly 38D...it's because my belly is growing, and if I still had my pre-pg figure, then I'd look like I were trying to smuggle grapefruits. I swear, pregnancy brain has made me so brilliant!

I knew when I asked him that he would tell me truth. I AM thankful he does not lie. I don't even know why I am bothered by it. I just am. I'm having an off day I think. I'll get over myself soon.

My butt is smaller. Its one of the few benefits of bedrest. Of course its smaller and flabbier, but I'll take what I can get.

Hilarious!!!!!

My hips and thighs are bearing the "weight" of my gain. I have read that you store extra fat cells in these areas to help provide milk. I'm going with that theory for sure.

I don't think so. My butt is so big it wouldn't fit in one shot. Heck, my belly still looks fat rather than pregnant. There is no way anybody is getting a shot of my butt. I am embarassed enough by my fat belly.

Darn it, I'm not on bed rest and my butt is disappearing. It always seems to do that. With my last pregnancy I sent some belly shots to a group I was on. Several...OMG you have such a small butt posts.

I'm so far away from J-Lo in the butt department it's not funny!

Friday we were getting changed to go out to eat and maybe go bowling or something. I put on a maternity top and my regular bottoms and looked very "motherly" and said " Well this doesn't look sexy at all, I look very frumpy" His reply God love him " Honey, now is not the time to be sexy..."



Excuse me......???

He then tried to take it back...I tuned him out lol

He said something else saturday, that my pg mind cant remember, and I told him 2 strikes buddy...3 times you're out!

These men!

Not in your DDC, but I've had two babies so that qualifies me for this answer: if your butt did not grow and only your belly did, you would be severely off balence. One baby I gained 60 pounds eating junk, one I gained just 25 on a whole-foods veggie diet & being really fit & in shape. Didn't matter, my butt got big for both. It has to, to balence out the baby weight in your belly.

Same here. He can't keep his hands off of me. Now that I think about it, I really do think that he was saying it as in a clothing type way. Like it's hard to wear sexy clothing when pg...but it just came out wrong.

He must think you are sexy...ya'll have so many kiddo's! Watch, we will be just like you guys here in a few years. We haven't put a limit on how many we are having...

Wish my DH did! : Mostly, towards the end, his thinking shifts from thinking of me as "Honey" to "Mamma". And maybe he's worried about all the contractions, he remembers the "no nookie" days from DD and all those weeks of bedrest...He is perfectly content to snuggle, and watch tv in bed, and stuff. So it's not like he's totally ignoring me...
