Quoting P Pickle Pants:" I always stick out WAY to the front. People have told me with ALL my pregnancies that I must be having ... [snip!] ... Proves gender doesn't effect how your uterus stretches :wink: This one is ALL girl parts in there. No peen to be seen!"


LOL so true!! Everyone says I have the perfect 'boy' belly... it's definitely a girl, haha.

Quoting Vivian [♥]:" 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 only gained 5lbs with him...TOTAL.
I got pregnant at 168, delivered at 173. Went home at 151. By the time I took him to his LC checkup 2 days later to make sure he was gaining, I was 138. I LOST 30LBS FROM PREGNANCY!!!!



Of course, I was dumb and chose hormonal BC after him...gained 35lbs back in ONE FREAKING MONTH!!! It was NUTS.



It was a totally freak thing, but I wouldn't mind breaking close to even by 6w PP this time around :D

Quoting P Pickle Pants:" I haven't announced gender and JUST because my last 2 were boys EVERYONE is screaming that this one ... [snip!] ... Because I'm bored and need entertainment, clearly. That's what happens when I run out of yarn before I run out of energy!"



OMG I know what you mean!!! I feel exactly the same way, except I haven't had any problems like you have :( but like, a bunch of people were so sure it was a girl... then it was & everyone was all, "omg I bet you're sooo happy, one of each!" :roll: I actually preferred another boy... XD

Quoting P Pickle Pants:" They say girls make you ugly! So far I've gained like maybe 2 lbs and my face/neck look thinner. Other ... [snip!] ... if I have them polished. Too bad I'm too lazy to keep them polished all the time, haha. I chip it WAY too easily for all that."


Lol I heard that in the beginning with DS, I was sure he was a girl at one point cos my skin and hair were oily, I was covered in zits that I could NOT leave alone, and I had this ghostly pale look all the time. It was probably just the crappy diet from the last two years catching up on me after DS started sucking everything good out of my system :P
Def a waste of time with the polish, but a french tip might look nice? And easy to maintain ;)

Quoting P Pickle Pants:" Yeah, I gained NOTHING with him. He was liposuction and trimmed me down everywhere else. I was a size ... [snip!] ... it wouldn't be a tragedy. God knows I eat like a horse and the babies come out big, so my doc and I both ignore the scale :D"


I got lucky with my boy as well, when I weighed myself at his six week check up I was lighter than I was pre-pregnancy. I think that was because I'd been eating better and because I'd cut out the beer (of course) I lost all the extra weight I'd been carrying.
If you did it once, you can do it again ;) And clearly, pregnancy really agrees with you. Maybe she'll be nice and not make you gain a tonne of weight :) But as long as your healthy, thats the main thing. And running around after two little ones is bound to knock off whatever weight you do gain lol

Quoting P Pickle Pants:" French tips chip off too. I am just going with clear-coat and keeping my nails really clean so it looks kindof french tipped :D"


Lol I'm tempted to paint my nails now! But DS is attached to my b**b so can't until he's in bed. He does this thing at night where he feeds for like two hours then practically goes into a milk-induced coma for 6 hours lol it's great

Quoting P Pickle Pants:" i've been careful so far because I know that if I go on bed rest (highly likely), I'll probably gain ... [snip!] ... I am CRAVING some tortilla chips right now. NO salsa. just plain! *nom* Debating it since I already brushed my teeth...Hmm..."


Were you not on bed rest with DS1? If you dont mind me asking lol. They say snacking on crunchy stuff like carrots and celery helps curb the junk food cravings, but I'm an addict so what helps most mere mortals stop eating junk does nothing for me ;)
MMMM corn chips.. I ate a whole bag of nacho cheese doritos earlier today :oops: I honestly don't know how I'm not the size of a house! The BFing makes me eat like it's going out of style lol. I vote yes on the corn chips :D
