Sorry...maybe it's a southern thing to call it flipping. Not sure! Yes...my uterus has been tilted. After a few days now, majority of it is gone yet again, so I don't think that my uterus did anything now. Now I think it was mainly a TON of bloating. I basically look again like my 10 wk pic again now. Will be 12 wks on Sat, so still waiting to really look like I'm pg again. :/

Re: August 2013 Belly Pics! ~ February Edition

Is anyone else measuring their girth every week? If so how much are you gaining every week? I have gained 1 inch in the last 4 weeks (1/4 inch a week) and am trying to figure out if I am normal or not. I was showing from about 6 weeks on. 2 c-sections do that to you I guess!

I haven't been...only because I don't know exactly where to measure!

I just look at picture comparisons to see if I've grown.

This is pregnancy #6 for me and I think my uterus is like oh she's pregnant...pop!

I'm thinking your uterus is relaxed too from having triplets before.

The triplets didn't stretch me out that much. DS gave me stretch marks at like 9 weeks. They grew so fast that I don't think I had time for stretch marks. I was in my pre-pregnancy clothes in 2 weeks after the section! I think if anything it was the section from the triplets that made me pop out faster but even then I am not sure as IVF makes you look pregnant when you do a fresh cycle so it is hard to tell. A frozen cycle like this baby, it is easy to tell.

Re: August 2013 Belly Pics! ~ February Edition

A couple weeks ago I got dressed for church and looked like I had suddenly popped. It must have just been bloating, though, since it went away. Now I'm back to having just a tiny bump that wouldn't make anyone wonder if I'm pregnant. It's ok, though, because I need to make some of that whipped body butter before the skin stretches too much! Hoping it will help keep the stretch marks at bay this time. I should be drinking bone broth daily also, since it has tons of nutrients and is rich in collagen. But I've been lazy about that... I also recently read on the Healthy Home Economist blog about how the minerals in raw milk (also found in bone broth) can help lead to a pain-free labor. Apparently they are much more bio-available in raw milk than in pasteurized. IDK how accurate that information is, but it's an interesting thought!

Re: August 2013 Belly Pics! ~ February Edition

Such cute bellies, mamas! <3

I haven't taken any pics yet. I keep looking in the mirror and trying 'suck it in' roflmao. I have some self-confidence issues with my weight, and I can usually live with it and be proactive trying to lose some of it. Right now I just feel very frumpy and blobby.
