Biggie Sized Belly


Last Wednesday we had our 32 Week appointment. I have been feeling extremely large as most women do at 8 months pregnant but as I look around at people my same stage I just seem huge. Dr Judd was out on delivery so we saw Dr Heather instead. My belly was measured and I was told I was definitely measuring big. I asked "How big?". She then told me that I am measuring 36 WEEKS!!! That is a full 4 weeks ahead...man a full month. Of course my automatic instinct was to ask "Does that mean I will go early?" The answer....NO. She suggested we have an ultra sound next week to see if he is really is just a big baby or if I just have a lot of amniotic fluid. If I have a lot of fluid then they will have to check his kidneys to be sure everything is functioning properly. We are so excited to be able to have an extra ultra sound! Normally the next time we would see him would be at birth. Brett loves ultra-sounds because it gives him a chance to realize that there really is a human inside me. He always says it is different for me because I can feel him all the time and I am constantly reminded of his growing body. Needles to say we are both extremely excited for Wednesday's ultra sound! We also start going to the Dr every 2 weeks instead of 4. Wahoooo :)

Comparing Belly Size at 26 and 32 Weeks

The first picture is much more attractive than the second. Man I am starting to look fat. I love it though! I am so grateful to have this belly and everything that comes with it...even the chubby cheeks!

You are like the cutest pregnant girl ever and could not be fat if you tried! Your belly is pretty big, just nothing else. Just don't have that baby until we move home...April 1. Anytime after that he is allowed to make his debut! Love you guys!

Hi Emily, those pics are super cute, you really look great. When I was pregnant with Sydney I was measuring big too, they told me I would probably have a 7 pounder. It turned out I had a ton of fluid and Sydney was 5 lbs. 14 oz. It;s funny how every situation is different, they really can't know anything for sure.

I too love getting ultrasounds, it should be fun to see him at this stage in the game.

You just look like you have a beach ball under your shirt. It is really just cute. At least your nose isn't huge like mine always gets....it doesn't make for very cute pictures. I'm so excited to meet the little guy and I'm not sure what Hallie is going to do when there isn't a little baby your stomach, maybe she will have hers by then too.
