Look at that belly...I'm only 5 weeks!!!



I started my pregnancy journal for our new baby and I like to take a picture each month and record my weight and measurements. I did this with Rylan and I love going back and watching my belly grow and reading all the fun stuff. It is especially helpful now that I am pregnant again too. I knew my belly looked "bloated" but I had no idea how much until I saw the pictures! I really haven't been eating much more than usual but I have gained a few pounds already! I gained 63 lbs. with Rylan and though I am not one who cares AT ALL about my weight, especially when pregnant, I do think it was a bit hard on my little bones carrying around so much weight towards the end there. So I am hpoing to not get SO big this time, but like I said, I probably won't do anything to stop it cause I like to give in to my desire to eat more than I care about how it will make me look or feel! :) At least Rylan loves my belly! I've been explaining to him there is a baby in there and he loves to kiss the baby! He kisses my belly everyday. The other day he lifted his shirt and instead of saying, "belly" he said, "baby." So I don't think he has quite grasped it yet but we are working on it! For now though I guess he is gonna have a baby too.

Maybe there's twins in there! I am so excited for you guys. I wish I could be there for you during your pregnancy. It is always so much fun to talk to women about that! Good luck girly!

Congrats! It's amazing how fast you pop out with the second one. That has no reflection on how much weight you'll gain throughout though, since I only gained 30 lbs with Alice and 50 with Jane!

TOO MUCH! I LOVE IT. You are too funny lady. That is just what I would do. When I was pregnant, my belly was out ALL of the time. I love you.

I think from my HCG count that there is only 1 baby but I really won't know until I have my first ultrasound on the 11th! I have only gained like 2lbs but man my tummy is SO bloated!
