HUGE belly!!!

Almost 30 weeks pregnant

37 weeks pregnant with Paisley
So, it just seemed to happen overnight.  Baby Deuce got gigantic.  Yeah, we knew from the ultrasounds that this child has been exhibiting rapid growth.  In fact, we know that the baby is weighing the same as babies 4 weeks older in gestation.  But I guess I hadn't noticed that my belly was also growing crazily!  This past week, I've had many comments about "you must be due anyday now" or "wow, that's a big baby!"   And I didn't really see it.  But today I tried on this purple tank top from my 1st pregnancy which I wore up until the end.  And it barely covered my belly.  In fact, I had to layer a blank tank under it to cover the gap. 

I'm not even 30 weeks.  And I've officially outgrown a LOT of my maternity clothes.  Then, Aaron took this picture today at a Memorial Day festival we went to with our friends and I was schocked when I saw it.  I look as big as I did full-term with her.  YIKES!!!  How are we going to remove giant baby?!?   And how can my belly grow any more?!?


  1. Wow that is a big belly and it is sooo low! I wonder if you are going to go early?

  2. Wow, it's so hard to tell what this means, lol! I've heard this happens with second (and subsequent) pregnancies, though - your body just knows how to do the growing, lol. Maybe that's it? Either way, you WILL be ok - you will get this giant baby out one way or another, lol! You look GREAT!

  3. You look great! Don't you wish there was a way they could just warp out?

  4. Woohoo! I LOVED being big. Loved it! You look great! :)

  5. I was the same way with Corbin! Maybe you're having a boy!
