12 months pregnant

Seriously. That's how pregnant I was (at LEAST!) I was measuring full term at 5 months! At my biggest I was measuring 52 weeks (yep there are 52 weeks in a year). Anyway, by request and for those of you who were deceived by the smallness of my belly in last year's Halloween pictures, this one is to set the record straight (and you don't even get the full bigness in this picture.)

This is it. The morning before they FINALLY induced me with Abby & Zack. 39 weeks and 1 day!

I'm about that size and I'm only having one. I have polyhydramnios and a baby in the 95%. I'm almost to 37 weeks and am measuring at 41. It's ridiculous. I know I'm not having twins, but I'm starting to feel like I am. Bless your heart for actually having twins. I can only imagine what your waddle was like.

I LOVE IT!!! I measured 52 weeks when I had Nate and Drew, as well... You look a heck of a lot cuter than I did, though. I wish I would have thought of dressing up as a baseball this year - what a cute idea. When the boys asked what I was dressing up as I told them "a big, fat, grumpy pregnant lady." I think I pulled it off quite well... :-)

Oh, and your kids are so stinkin' cute I just can't stand it! I LOVE the theme you chose. Soooooooo CUTE!!! (Seeing your twinfants makes me miss two sweet babies so badly!!!)

What a cute belly. I almost forgot how big you were, the most amazing thing is that you looked much better at 52 weeks pregnant than I did at 14 weeks pregnant. To quote Will Smith in "Men in Black"..."The difference is that [you] make this look good."

No wonder you feel like Frank Laden....

So I won't even pretend to compare to that belly. But I do remember it like it was yesterday..and then it actually seems like years ago. I still can't believe how big you were and how you were still walking with me and going shopping..pretty amazing!

OUCH! you look great!

Just catching up and this picture made me run (well, waddle) to the mirror. Totally explains why people keep asking if I'm having twins! (And why my dr agreed to induce me at 38 wks!) I totally love this big, pointy belly look. Definitely the cutest part of pregnancy.
