Yay! it is Friday and a long weekend at that.....I love long weekends.
Mara-- I think I'm carrying a bit lower, but it is hard to say for sure. I think everything is so stretched out since this is #5, that I may be a bit lower. Here are some other bellies to compare to, just for fun. You tell me!
Here is 37 weeks with our first, Taya.
34 weeks with Callie-- who was our biggest at 8 lbs
Same pregnancy, Callie, at 38 weeks
38 weeks with Miles
38 weeks with Lexi (a belly painting party!)
Are you tall, Audra? Seems like you carry your babies very up and down vs out front so much. But I do think you look a bit lower this time- and it probably is because it's #5! That said, you actually look very similar to how you carried Callie, I think. Do you think this will be a big baby?

You are such a GORGEOUS pregnant momma!!! Excited to follow your lodge!!!

I love your pictures! What a totally fun looking family vacation.
I'm 5'6"-- so pretty average.
My MW thinks this will be our biggest baby yet-- and she may be right. With the other 4 pregnancies I always hit 36 weeks weighing exactly the same....and this time, I'm a full 10 pounds heavier than I've ever been. I started at the exact same weight each time, too...but this time, I'm just packing on more pounds. Who knows why? I think I'm actually working out more than in past pregnancies. Perhaps it is because I'm older? Staring at 35 and my metabolism has slowed? I have no clue....I'm not worried about it. MW thinks he'll be more than 8 lbs-- guess we'll find out in a few weeks.
You are rockin that bikini! What a great vacation before the new addition arrives.
