I just browsed through my baby shower pics... the "radiant" mama everyone has been calling me is fat!!! and puffy!!! I've noticed my rings are getting tight all of the sudden... but wow, my face has got the pregnant puff!!! :LOL<br><br>
It's just funny because I didn't realize it until I saw the pics just now. I must be even puffier because this pic was taken 2 weeks ago...<br><br><a href="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y260/tranquilmama/PA0900372.jpg" target="_blank">Pregnant Puff-face</a>

You are very cute!<br><br>
It'll all go away after the baby is born.<br><br>
One way to help with the fluid retention is to drink LOTS of water. I would suggest 2-3 liters a day. I drink about a gallon of water a day! And as soon as I go light on the water... I become a living water balloon and even loose the arches in my feet! :LOL Today and yesterday however I drank tons of water... yesterday being about a gallon... and while I am still retaining a good deal fluid, I can at least see the bones in my feet and I still have my foot arches. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

Me, too! I didn't notice how fluffy my face was in real life until I saw a picture of myself taken two weeks ago. It's like, Whoa is that my face or the stay puff marshmallow girl's?<br><br>
I love being pregnant and I love my pregnant body. It's so fun to think about all the puffiness and swelling going away in a month or three! Like, all I have to do is deliver a baby and breastfeed to lose some weight/fluid retention. Then, okay, I can handle this extra layer of skin for now!

I know... I was way puffier last time... and it wasn't just water retention! Not looking forward to the night sweats post birth though because now I know for pretty much sure that I'll be soaking through my sheets again...<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

The other day, someone said to me, "now, you finally <i>look</i> pregnant. Your face looks pregnant, very full." Er, thanks.<br><br>
My husband is watching The Alias right now. I am looking forward to Ms. Bristow's face looking pregnant. Those cheekbones have got to go, Jen.
