You look great, melissarana!  Good luck tomorrow!  I love the names of your children, by the way.  Can't wait to hear what you name your new guy.

luxlove.gif  Great photos!  You are all beautiful, and your bodies rock!  jammin.gif

 

* "My body rocks!" is my favorite birth mantra.  I taped it to the wall beside my birth pool during my last labor, and I will be doing the same this time around.  Along with my other faves.... like "I will soon be holding my baby"


MamaEcho, I love your belly art!  love.gif

Azadehhast:  What beauty and grace I see in those pregnancy curves! 

 

I don't usually feel that way with all of pregnancy's symptoms, but still photos capture that spirit of beauty

Everyone looks amazing! I'm waiting until 36 weeks to take my next photo. I am feeling very WHALE like!

Can't wait to share my own POST babe photos, LOL!

Love the after-baby shots!

 

Not quite sure which thread to use now, so I'll use both.

 

My 36 week photos--since I haven't really taken any since 32, these are a little shocking to me. There is definitely a full-sized baby in there now!

Looks MUCH more normal with the shirt down!

A little blury, but the curve is cute and shocking.

I saw dsb's postpartum photo and decided to snap a quick shot to post on here.  I am nearly 1 week postpartum and pretty much living in my pjs.  :)  Each day, my tummy goes down more and my boobs get bigger.  Ha.

I think there is a weight loss thread started in the Dec Groups section that I hope to be active in.  There is also a big weightloss/fitness forum too.

I really look forward to being fully recovered from surgery so I can get moving again.

 

I think you all look great!  Thank you for all the well wishes.

I agree,  was gaining a pound a week (even gained ten lbs between two midwife appts...YIKES) but once I hit the 8th month, it totally stopped. I'm so grateful because I wasn't supposed to gain much weight with this pregnancy since I hadn't lost the baby weight from my last pregnancy but I still managed to gain 40lbs yikes...can we have a group to keep us all in touch post partum because this weight has got to go after baby comes....and posting pics and having all your support has been great!!

Dsb~ you look great!

What beautiful bellies!

DSB, that is some serious belly shrinkage for having had two babies inside just a week ago. It feels like it'll be a miracle if my belly is ever the same size as my breasts again (of course it will be!) 

 

JJ, I totally know what you mean! There is a full, baby-sized BABY in there! Holy crap, that's utterly amazing.

You are looking really good, mama! Maybe I should "try" to not gain any more weight, cause it is really working for you. ;)

You'll have baby soon! How exciting!

I'm glad you posted this, mama! I hope others will do the same after they deliver! I am so excited to see my waist again someday. I agree with JJ, you look beautiful!

37w2days. This was after I had taken my hair down for the day, was on my way to get ready for bed, and then went WAIT! I need a comparison picture! lol. But look how pretty baby looks. lol. It's really hitting me these last few days that she is BABY SIZED guys! Like a full sized real person. It's crazy.

And my OB commented on Tuesday that wow I didn't have any stretchmarks. I thought that was a very careless thing to say as an OB, since most experienced mamas know that it a'int over til it's over! lol I'm 38 weeks today- so I still have potentially 4 weeks to gain new ones! And this is when I'll likely get them because she's the biggest, I'm the most stretched, and she's still trying to move around in there and stretching the skin.

Here's the sneak peek for our family pictures we had done, they turned out great. We got all my brothers and niece and nephew together, it was great. Except my homeless looking brother was still drunk from the night before, and smelled like it. *gags*

I loveeeeeee the belly cast, this is my third and I've never done one :(

 

Amanda- I was thinking about pulling out some "before I lost weight jeans" and see if they fit, but they aren't low cut, so I didn't even try.

 

I'm up 42 pounds and so I'm thinking I'll end this pregnancy up about 50. Assuming that 9 pounds of it is baby, it's really daunting to think about losing it all. However, I did come up with a theory on why I gain so much pregnant, it's because I can't drink beer, so I drown my stress and sorrows in chocolate and other delicious carbs. :D

JJ, I think your belly looks much bigger! Every other part of you looks so tiny, though. Lucky!! You look awesome!
