Am I THAT big for 7.5 months?
I weighed 99 lbs pre-pregnancy and 5'2", my goal weight was to gain at least 25 lbs...well I have 10 weeks left and this is how big I am

I keep getting comments that I'm huge for 7.5 months and that I must be having twins! I'm assuming I have another 10 or so lbs to gain in the next 2 I really that big? First pregnancy so I have no clue but slightly afraid of putting on 35-40 lbs!

You look good! Are these people used to seeing your pre-preggo tummy and that's why they think it's big now?

Yep looks like average first pregnancy to me.
FYI, I gained 30 with my first and 40 with my second, and had no problems losing it, even though I'm not naturally thin. (just average weight and a bit short). I'm sure even if you do gain 30-40 pounds you'll be just fine and lose it no problem. :)

Wow, I would say you looked perfect! You are so beautiful :). People at this point in anyone's pregnancy love to comment on the baby bump and the first thing they can think of is, "Look! The baby is showing big time now, and I can say something absurd!!" Either 'your huge! are you having twins', or 'so small are you eating right?'. Grin and shake it off :). Pretty soon you'll be receiving unwarranted parental advice about your adorable baby. :hugs:

Ohmygodyourehugehowdoyouevenfitbehindasteeringwhee l!!!!

You look lovely and also smaller than me and I'm a good 5+ weeks behind you. People can't keep their mouths shut when talking to pregnant women for some reason. Just smile and move on.

:) No worries, you look great! I kwym about the stupid comments, though - with DS1 I had 2 strangers in the grocery store literally start arguing with me over whether I was having twins or a singleton. Idiots.

I get big. Rather quickly. :) I just ignore the stupid comments (now, though it was really hard with my first couple pregnancies) and love my big belly!
This is me at 30 weeks & 32 weeks with Levi...
