That mixed with yoga 4 days a week and running a mile and a half once a week seem to work. Although, the running is definitely getting harder the older I get. I'll probably not run after this baby...but the yoga is FABULOUS for tone and calorie burning. Plus, it's so low-impact that it just feels WONDERFUL.

Thanks again!!

I have a friend who just had her 2nd baby 4 mo ago and is already tiny again (she doesn't bf past 6w i think). Anyway, she does it w/ yoga, too. I might have to jump on the bandwagon! She is sending me her pn yoga dvd's.

4.5 weeks

9.5 weeks

Sorry they are a bit blurry.

I'm huge already at 12 weeks. I'm only 5'1" and this is my 8th time pg, but five of them were first trimester miscariages. My kids were 10lb 8oz and 11lb 4oz so they really did a job on stretching out my skin. I think that's why I'm so big so early already!

Everyone looks so cute! My belly hasn't gotten any bigger (thanks to the flab left by #1 and 2) but it's gotten rounder. I'll have to take a pic this weekend.

Those are some big baby you gave birth too. Wear they natural or c/s? I can't even imagine a 11lb 40z baby. My kids aren't 11lbs until maybe 6 weeks old. You sure can grow them. Good for you. You are looking wonderful.

I've seem to have grown in just the last couple days.

Here I am at 6w5d, 11w and today at 11w5d

I showed hubby the picture from today and he accused me of sticking it out, so here I am sucking it in.

I'm 5'2.5" so I know exactly what you mean by baby having nowhere to go but out.

I also don't like the division by sizes. In my other two pgs, I looked like a plus size woman by the end. (I gained 70+ lbs each time, which would definately put short me into the plus category).

For those of you who are jealous of my baby bump, I'll be jealous of most of you when my belly starts to look photoshopped at the end! I'm jealous already that so many of you don't have to wear maternity clothes yet!

My kids ended up c-sections, but I tried vaginal for both. My son's head couldn't fit. It was starting to mold but was completely stuck for 6 hours before we gave in. (This was nearly 24 hours into an induction at 42 weeks). My daughter's chest was too wide for her to come down. I have insulin resistance and passed the 3 hour GTT both times. However, it's VERY likely that my blood sugar was out of whack with my daughter due to her chest pudge, low blood sugar at birth, and that she's actually small boned. My son is still big and still has a huge head. I don't think my blood sugar played any part in his size.

Here is my 12 week shots. This little one sure is growing. My uterus is all the way up to my belly button now. I can feel it so clear now. I can't wait to see what the dr. says tomorrow at my apt.

dividedsky, you also look great!! glad you dig my glasses, they were my "i'm-pregnant-and-feeling-frumpy-so-i-need-to-splurge-on-something-fun" with a dash of "my-husband-dumped-me-so-the-best-revenge-is-looking-and-feeling-good" purchase.

it's exciting that most of us have reached this point where our pregnancies are no longer so abstract...most of us have heard or seen our babies, some of us have FELT them, many of us are showing. hopefully most of us are starting to feel a little better too.

it's so cool that we're all in this journey together! i don't know what i would do without the internet!
