There are a few ladies pregnant over at SHS. There was talk about how scary we all start looking near the end of pregnancies. Then there was a challenge to post a scary pregnancy photo. Here's mine...................
This is me about 8 months pregnant with son #3. Numerous relatives called this my "ski slope belly." (You know who you are!) I gained roughly 40+ pounds I think. The pants I had on did not fit me at the start of the pregnancy & then were the only ones I COULD fit in near the end.
I have diabetes so large babies are a concern. As a result I had ultrasounds weekly from week 32 until the week before. They measured & calculated & thought son #3 would weigh a high 8 pounds (8.11 I think was the final estimate). My OB had warned me that if he measured too large she was going to push for a C-section. I had warned her that unless there was immediate danger I was NOT going to have a C-section! So she induced me one week early. After 22 hours of labor (ugh - why do mine keep getting LONGER!!!!) our third son came in to the world.
The nurse announced his weight (drum roll please!!!) 10 lbs. 3 ozs. Both my OB & I went, "WHAT???" That was a God thing I'm sure. I only had a small tear where I had had an episiotomy with son #1 eight years earlier.
However, this belly was something else........................oh & I was VERY glad to finally see my feet again!
