With my last, (my 3rd) at 40wks I measured 46 wks, I was huge and so was he, 9 lbs and 13oz!

I didn't even know you could measure that high :shock:
I must have a shorter torso or something because at one point my dr stopped really measuring because my uterus was behind my ribs.

My first was 9lb 13oz and I'm 5'3, so he had nowhere to go but OUT. I made them measure me before my water broke in hospital. 53cm. That guy was just made to take up the whole room---even at 3 he's only a little bigger than average, but he's got a TON of personality so he seems even bigger than he is!



My next was 1lb 6oz, so I didn't get very far with him, but he measured a little big for his age en utero.



I'm hoping my penchant for making big babies keeps up and this little girl grows big and strong and healthy and IF she comes preemie, she's got a little benefit of being a little bigger and a little fatter than most of the babies for her gestation.

Well it definitely loves you back, you look fantastic :D I had the pre-pubescent *sp?* skin while I was pregnant too, and it hasn't gone away yet almost 9 weeks PP :?
I'm SO glad little girl is sticking. She'll be a fighter like her mama :D

I think I've gotten pretty big fast w/ this one too, but I've definitely slowed down on the growing. I haven't grown very much in the past month or so. I'm sticking out a lot w/ this one, like you lol

yeah, I measured 42 at my 35 week appointment with my son (I went over due). Because of it my doc sent me for ultrasounds to make sure it wasn't too much fluid/etc. Turns out he just had a growth spurt and got EXTRA fat around 33-35 weeks because I went from measuring 2ish weeks over to 7 weeks over in the 3 weeks between appointments. My doc was like :shock:----and then was totally surprised when he was nearly 10lbs at birth :roll:



Coulda told him he was gonna be huge just by LOOKING at me:
34 weeks with my first:

one month later---this is the last one I have. I was too embarrassed by my stretchies to take a bare pic. I was at the pool when I took this one and WAY too embarrassed to take my tank off out of the water---but I DID wear a string bikini under, haha.

holy belly!!!
I get pretty big too. But with my first I lost all the weight right away. I hope it works like that this time around.

I swear I looked GREAT with both my boys. Perfect skin and hair.



This time? My hair went to shit for the entire first trimester (expensive shampoo got it back. Keratase FTW!) My skin looks like it did in middle school (worse!) and even cleaning it 2-3 times a day doesn't help much (some improvement!). Thank God my doc said I can use Stridex pads with salicylic acid before bed. I swear its the ONLY thing keeping it at bay. I was HOPING the 2nd trimester would get rid of it, but so far it hasn't!
