yeah. everything is pretty much the same except my waist is half an inch bigger, my boobs are an inch bigger, and my thighs are each .5 inch bigger. ****** water retention.
it's important to measure for accountability!! nothing but the belly and the boobs is expanding from here on out!
Take it easy on your body. In your third trimester you will have water retention in your arms and legs. I am a tiny person, 5'4" 98 pounds, and gained only 20 pounds during my first pregnancy. Yet, I could not wear my wedding band because of the swelling in my extremities by 6 or 7 months. Sometimes you have to let your body do what it was made to do and not force it into submission.
I agree with Lauren. I wish I had more self control and energy to eat well and work out every single day, but sometimes I need to just relax and let my preggo hormones take over. A lot of what appears to be fat is actually just water retention or bloat.
