kazforrest----How is your pregnancy going so far?? No complications I hope. All I can tell you is that it does go by fast. Not sure how big you're measuring, but try to ignore the comments you'll get. I heard "you're getting bigger!" and stuff like that every day and I went home and cried to dh many many times. People comment and they don't realize that it can either hurt your feelings or you just don't give a &#*% what their opinion is. I'd say try to be ready, since your lo can make an early appearance, but that's just me cause I like to plan ahead, plus I worry too d__n much. GL!

Coco- you are so right i am so self conscious about my size, i have put on 7lbs so far. No complications, it was a surprise pregancy and it took me to 20wks to get used to the idea but it seems like everything ok. At the moment my belly b___ton is geting smaller! What about you how are you getting on?

7lbs!! Girl, you are lucky!! But it does suck that when you're already self conscious about your growing belly, all these random people feel they have the right to comment. It's irritates me!! My belly b___ton is getting smaller too...I'm due in 2 weeks and I'm hoping it doesn't pop out. I'm just tired of being pregnant at this point and want my baby to be here.

Get ready to be more uncomfortable, wanting to take more naps as your energy is about to get zapped, and be ready for more intense kicking. This is my 2nd pregnancy and it really is a joy everytime. Good Luck!

Darling...do not be feeling badly about 7lbs...I just heard today that Jennifer Lopez is 5 months pregnant and has gained 40lbs. So, feel good! (I know I do!!!) Advice...be warned that when you go out into public, people, anyone, will want to TOUCH the belly (arghhh) and will then proceed to ask how far you are and then telll you you're looking big. No matter how big you actually are. They will ask if it's twins. Just laugh. (It's easier than getting mad...) And then they will tell you all about their daughter/friend/neice/cousin/aquaintance who just had a baby and yada yada yada.... Eat small amounts frequently...it helps with heartburn. And you can get away with just about anything...because people are sympathetic and you're pregnant! Enjoy your third trimester...it really does fly by...

40lbs bloody hell what is she eating!! I havent had any heartburn yet. The first 6 months have gone so fast as it is and i am so scared about motherhood, i could do with an extention to my pregnancy!! Have you all done birth plans etc?

LOL, you are so lucky to only have gained 7lbs so far! i have gained 30 and only have a month to go but you can't even really tell i've gained that much weight. most of it is baby anyway lol, i carry her WAY far out! from behind you can't even tell i'm pregnant but once you see me profile or head on it's like "whoa!! you're pregnant!" LOL I didn't get any stretch marks until I was about 28 weeks and now because my baby is so big and so far out front I have PLENTY of them below my belly b___ton and creeping upward. I really don't mind them all that much but if that is important to you than be prepared that you might get them. um, i think everything else has been covered, just enjoy it because the rest of your pregnancy is going to FLY!! Oh yeah, and sometimes those braxton hicks contractions can be really uncomfortable and trick you into thinking you've started labor. Good luck and enjoy!!

Wow! Only 7lbs! GREAT JOB! As long as your doctor is okay with it! =) I do have to agree i just hit the third trimester this week and today alone (AT WORK) i've heard three comments about how my belly is popping out.. although everyone still says i'm small the comments are starting. i ain't gonna lie it does kind of get to you but i just think i know i'm healthy and so is baby and i don't care what THEY think of me!!! I am not looking forward to strangers trying to feel my belly! I am not gonna be a nice person when that starts!
