Oh Belly

I'm large.
At 23 weeks I measured the equivalent of 32 weeks with a singleton. I'm now 28 weeks, so you can just imagine how big that is. My guesstimation is that I'm about 41cm fundal height (so 41 WEEKS big). We'll find out at next week's appointment!

14.5 weeks
(when the bump first appeared!):

16 weeks:

19 weeks:

23 weeks:

28 weeks:

Stretch marks finally showed up at 26 weeks. Based on my size and rate of growth at that point, I'd likely have flown through a singleton pregnancy unscathed. Oh well, it's not like I'm regularly sporting midriff-baring ensembles anyhoot. Guess I'll have to splurge on a pair of Spanx if things don't snap back. Ain't not thang.

Growth since Wednesday has suddenly rendered me unable to bend over by more than a few inches. If I want something on the ground, I'll be squatting or getting onto my hands and knees for it.

Half of my maternity shirts are getting too short, Donald's jackets no longer zip up, and only one of my sweatshirts fits. And non maternity pants? Forget about it.
However, I refuse to spend more money on larger and ill fitting maternity (read:ugly) clothes to accommodate this watermelon for 6-9 more weeks. So forgive the camisole-covered lower baby-bump that's now popping out of many outfits, but I've got two robust boys growing up in here.
