At the biggest spot, around my belly button, I'm 96cm or 37.8".

How big are you?

I guarantee I am bigger than all of you, considering my waist was 33" to start out with. I gained a bunch of weight last year from some medication and got pregnant before I could lose it.

I think I started out at 31.5"

I'm probably like 44" around now if I decide to measure I'll post the result

39 inches. This makes me wish that I'd have measured myself during my other pregnancies.

Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!

I just seem to be carrying him really deep inside. But to be fair when I took that measurement yesterday it was early-ish in the afternoon. I bet if I take it again this evening after dinner I will register an inch or two more. Same thing with my weight... there's usually a 2 lb difference between weighing in the AM vs the PM which is why I usually weigh myself in the evening.

Umm... I'm huge. Not going to measure myself, bc I don't want to feel defeated. Based upon pics with DD's pregnancy, I'm as big now (at 28 weeks) as I was the DAY before I gave birth to DD. UMMMM.... I'm not sure how much bigger I can get!

ok, I measured. I'm at 40.5" I'm very, very short so this roundness feels huge. I feel like I swallowed a beach ball. Tomorrow is the beginning of the 3rd trimester for me so I guess I'll have to have dh take a picture. I can not believe I have 3 months left to grow. I don't know where it's going to fit! Uterus is already up to my ribs.

You must be carrying high.

I am carrying so low!!! My belly is big down to my panty line. When I sit, the bottom of it is actually rolled over itself touching my pubic bone and legs. I grew out of more than half my *pregnancy* pants. Forget my pre pregnancy jeans.

I'm 5'9", I've gained 17lbs so far and I'm 30 weeks along.

My belly measurements (I measure around the widest part of my hips) was 50" yesterday (I measure once a week and keep a record of it - have for all three pregnancies).

I'm just 1.5" shy of where I was when I delivered my son last year right at 40 weeks. I can't imagine how much bigger I'm going to get in the next 10 weeks. UGH!!!

Weird thing is I know this little one is not going to be as big as her brothers at birth. She might be as long but she is not near as heavy. I might be wrong and she might blow past their 10lbs 11oz and 9lbs 14oz but she just has not felt as big. And, she just measures a few days ahead on ultrasound where the boys consistently measured 2 weeks ahead. Go figure.

My doc just laughs when she measures my fundus - "you're ahead but you make big babies" is all she says.

Ha ha.. I weigh myself in the morning because I don't like to count those extra lbs.. I pretend they don't exist..

I had forgotten that my pre-pregnancy pants existed.. I haven't been able to wear them since about 8-10 weeks!
