Comparing Ginormous Bellies with Surburban Turmoil
When MommaK sent me an email linking to a hand drawn picture of pregnant Lindsay of Suburban Turmoil, I had to take a look. The picture showed a freakishly ginormous belly, house shoes and cute black pants that she wears every day. Which made me think back to the my last pregnancy where I had a completely freakishly ginormous belly - because I was pregnant with twins.
I started out a size 4 before my first pregnancy with my older son. Move forward to my second pregnancy with twins, where I gained 70 pounds! I really could not fit behind a steering wheel, the rest of my body joined in the fun by blowing up like a ballon, had to wear an Medela apparatus that I can only describe as a pulley under my belly and when I sat down I could not get back up. My favorite activity while laying down on my left side - where I spent most of my time at the end of my pregnancy - was watching the babies squirm around my belly. There was not much room for them to move, one of my twin boys was born at 6 pounds 8 ounces while the other was 7 pounds 15 ounces.
Lindsay, happy baby shower! Enjoy your special bigness and get some sleep if you can before the big date.
