I would guess I could top that but I am almost frightened to measure. LOL! I'll just say this... I was big before I got pregnant... Yeah, I'm positive I could top that.

35 inches at my belly button, and I'm 24 weeks. Oh man, to have a 26-inch waist again! Wonder if it'll go back??? Probably not.

I'm a "big" girl as it is, and my belly region is just... odd.

At my belly button, it's 41", but at the baby bump (below the belly button), I'm 45". I don't know how accurate that is, but...

I'm at about 24 weeks, and 4 or 5 days. There was a lady I ran into at a baby store with my exact same due date. She was showing a lot more than I was, but she's also already had one baby while this is my first.

I'm the one that started the beached whale post, and now I know why. I'm at 48" around the belly button.

Arghhh!!
Seeing everybody's tiny numbers scared me!

I knew I was huge, but seeing actual numbers is freaky.
Everybody tells me I look like I am about to pop.
My tummy is also looking a lot bigger than those of the women due any day I now, whom I saw at the hospital...

I am measuring...

51 flipping inches
I am 27 weeks tomorrow

I also looked humongous even when with my first.
Oh well... That's what you get from having a short frame and apparently, organs taking all the space inside

ok ok.... so I measured, despite my fear. I have you all beat at 52 1/2 inches. And that is 23 1/2 weeks. Though my fundus is measuring 28 and the midwife said that is fine since everything on the u/s looked great. Anyhow... I feel so huge I can't imagine getting bigger. *sigh*

this is fun! seriously, maybe im in denial of my pregnancy, but i really feel like im giant! and while i had a big tummy to begin with, (probably 36 inches) its weird to look at the number 46 inches, and think~ thats almost 4 feet around! does that mean that by the end ill be bigger around than i am tall!??! thanks for playing along ladies. im thrilled that we are all getting so close now. rememebr morning sickness?? (and sorry to you that have it through the whole 9 months) now we cant breathe or bend over. and before too long well be in the baby forum wondering if its normal to have a baby who nurses 24 hours a day. yay!

I took a measurement today and I am 34 1/2 inches around and I am 27 weeks along.

The funny thing is that I feel like I am measuring smaller than I did with my first at this point.

43 inches and 25w2d

The midwife and ob says that the fundus is measuring small though.

Funny thing is when i first measured it said 19 inches! Then I realized I had the measuring tape the wrong way.

36" at 27 weeks...but I'm tall with a long torso, so I still don't really *look* pregnant if I'm not wearing a maternity shirt. I feel huge and have gained over 20 pounds, just don't look the part :P

Mine was 39" a couple of weeks ago and I posted a thread about it because I was kind of freaked out!

The skinnie minnies on here crack me up! I'm bigger than most of you NON pregnant!

So I measured, because I was curious. 48.5 @ 24 weeks today

Then, out of more curiousity, I measured my ever-expanding boobs. 49"!!!!!!!

egad!

Still not the 51" I hit at the peak of nursing after my ds, but still! I think there's enough there to do the job!

wow, you guys all have me beat. I just measured, and I'm at 32.5" at the belly button. It is my first, and I'm at the tail end of this DDC at 24 weeks...Definitely look pregnant though.

wow. 45 inches, 26 weeks. YIKES! I must say, from the belly pics thread, there are a lot of skinny minnies on here. OK, I'm justifying. Um, this is my second pregnancy? There I go again. hee hee.
Fun thread.
Way to go ladies, everyone sounds like we're all in the same "range". Yay babies!

I realize you ladies have stoped posting here but is it normal for me to be at 53 inches at ten weeks 4 days?
Before I was pregnant I had gotten down to 34 inches all measurements are around my bellybutton.
