    I'm 26 weeks and feel like that too. Plus everyone keeps telling me how big i am compared to them! But I had a midwife appointment today and she assured me that I'm growing at a normal rate which made me feel better. Lol

    Totally in the same boat! Really popped the last few weeks. Belly button protruding and everything. But I've only gained ten pounds and THAT feels like a lot. Can't imagine what 20 must feel like.

    Girl I couldn't believe it when I stepped on the scale this week! I mean this back pain is noo fun! I'm betting I'll be pushing 40 lb weight gain! I sure hope breast feeding will take it off afterward..I'm just so uncomfortable already and I still have 4 months left...:dohh:

    I was interviewing Doulas and one actually commented to me before leaving my house how huge and fat I was at 17 weeks. I have only gained 5 lbs and I am nearly 20 weeks. Yes my belly is huge, but I always show quickly and I am always huge. I have a short torso, I ma petite build, and everything always seems to be mashed uo in the front.

    I'm sure you look great. Screw everyone! lol

    I wish my OH would be more considerate of me and help me in the house! It's getting so hard and exhausting doing it all myself!

    As of last week I've gained 32 pounds so I know the feeling!! My OH helps me out quite a bit, he will mop the floor for me, and other things that I cant do.

    I refuse to step on the scales and the last time I had to was at my booking in appointment at week 11. They didn't ask me to at my 16 week MW appointment and told me that I looked just fine for my height. I have no idea how much I have put on but my pre preg trousers still fit over my hiney and thighs, so I am hoping it cannot be that much. But as for my belly... well I do have two in there but considering I am only 18 weeks and already find sleeping uncomfy I am kinda dreading how I'll feel when I am HUGE as I will be very soon no doubt.
