At 24 weeks...
Just noticed tonight that I have popped again seemingly over night!
I am so off balance lol
I seem to resemble more closely to a beached whale or hippo these days!
Its very strange to me. I had a 26 inch waist before I got pregnant (my average standard MMA cage fighting sturdy frame)
And now you ask?
Well I couldn't tell you because I refuse to touch a measuring tape lol
But best guess its closer to 40 since last time it was over 30.
But I am embracing it the best I can!
Who else has noticed that they are really starting to pop?
Anyone still attempting to "hide" their "bump" or "hippo cushion" as I lovingly call it.
How do oh feel about your new frontal counter balance?
What does your bump look like?
I can no longer hide it at all even if I wanted too!!
I have a love hate relationship with my lack of flexibility and inability to touch my toes! I know my lungs are not enjoying it at all! I love it because it means I am another step closer to my baby boy!
My hippo cushion looks like a basketball under my shirt lol. Seriously I am round! And I have an outie now! So weird! I have yet to develop a linea negra or (knock on wood) stretch marks. I have a tattoo on my lower right hip too that seems to be fairing rather well. My bump is all baby!
If your comfortable post some pics of those b-e-a-u-t-I-f-u-l baby bellys!!
Mine if someone doesn't know me/know I'm pregnant they probably just think I gained weight. I think it's cute because I can see the difference in myself. But bare it looks weird because I still have my "B-Belly" crease. My button hasn't popped yet.
I don't have a bare picture and am not really comfortable with it since it's still kind of flabby. But you look great!!!
You look beautiful hun, you are all belly I have my moments, my belly seems to fluctuate, I'm so tiny this time compared to my other pregnancys though.. Maybe similar to my first but I was alot skinnier at the start compared to my 2nd and 3rd so that could be why. I haven't taken a recent belly pic I will soon and post it.
Awe! How cute!
Isn't it amazing tho what the human body can do?
I mean there is a mini person in there growing and moving right now!
Im still fascinated by that concept lol which is Probably why I haven't had to many objections to losing my in shape cage fighting body (yet)
My objections are with my clothes for not working with me lol!
I too have begun waddling and grunting and making all kind of weird goofy sounds when doing things that are totally involuntary lol! Everyone seems to get a kick out of it tho.
I noticed the other day that i now have the pregnant WADDLE! Definitely popping way out there, with lots more room for growth, so i know it's just going to get bigger and bigger and bigger till people start saying "oh my goodness haven't you had that baby yet??"
I think I'm faring pretty well for my third kid. I won't be able to update my belly shots till I get my laptop fixed but I took one at 26 weeks at the doctor's office last week and put it on FB. I don't think I've grown much since then. I was able to fit in a pair of size 11 pants yesterday, with the rubber band trick of course.
Oh my goodness just went thru my pics and i found this! I had almost forgotten what I looked like! This is normally what I looked like before I got pregnant! Amazingly I'm alright with my bulbous transformation lol. How I feel after on the other hand...well we will see!
So this was me yesterday (same pic as above)
And this was me before
Big big change! Gosh now I really feel like a hippo! You can see how my tattoo on my hip used to almost be hidden be my jeans lol now its barely covered.
You looked awesome before, but your bump is totally awesome now. And you will get back into shape after the baby.
I also am carrying all out front and can't believe how big my belly got so fast. Here's my 4-week and my 24-week. I'm only up 11 pounds, so I really feel like 80% is just right there in my belly! I'm embracing the bump.
I love my bump I embrace it. I am literally all belly! All out front!
Does anyone else have balance issues too? I waddles and almost topple sometimes lol my center of gravity has shifted dramatically lol
You are too cute by the way
All these beautiful bellys
As great as I looked before, there is just something beautiful and amazing about a pregnant body. I thought they were cute before I got prego. Now I think it's doubly true!
