No way! You're still so small! I bet no one believes you are carrying twins in there. You look great!

It was very fun! I went slower than I would have normally and I wouldn't have made it without my camelpack. It holds 2 liters and was almost gone. But the view was amazing!

Hmm ... I feel a lot bigger than it seems in this pic, I guess. I started out very chunky (186 lbs) and either I have been busily converting chunk to babies or my MacBook's camera is on some sort of skinnier funhouse setting.

My dh saw your belly shot last night and I said "that's 20 weeks with TWINS" and he looked at me like this :eek: and said "wow - are you having 3 then?" ROFL. He then apologized and said he didn't mean to be rude to me. Ha - I wasn't offended. I am way bigger.

Hahaha! Oh man, another case of men say the darndest things! My boyfriend's most recent one was, "I hope the babies get none of your genes." WHAT?!? And he quickly explained that he doesn't want them to be allergic to cats or have bad backs or my family's genetically crooked middle fingers. Oh.

HAHAHA - Please clarify that BEFORE saying you don't want the kids to have your genes, LOL! At least it wasn't anyone else that said it - I would have been fuming.

Men are so awful, but that is HILARIOUS!!!!

There is a scene from desperate housewives that I love. Lynnette's husband made a comment about how big she was when she was expecting twins. Lynette overhears this and says "what??? you said I was BEAUTIFUL!?!?!" and he says "I had to... you were TWICE my size!!!"

i do have some stretch marks! fortunately they are very shallow and pale. You have to be close to see them. They only show in my belly pics if I use a bright flash. Moisturize like crazy... dry skin will not stretch well. and stay within the weight gain guidelines. The rest is up to nature I'm afraid! I also used Mederma stretch mark therapy for three months after I had Luke... it cost about 30 bucks a month but was so worth it! I have before and after pics if you wanna see Wink

ROFL that is hilarious. Yea, My DH has said a few times, "are you sure there aren't twins in there?!" Hmpf is all I have to say to that. Blum 3

I can't believe how incredibly fit you all are! I am gaining so much weight. It's typical, but I just can't excercise. I feel like crum and seem to be in worse shape after I atempt a little workout... I am determined to lose it all after I pop this big boy out haha.

I just signed up for photobucket and then copy and past the HTML link it gives you after you upload the photo to your account there. I'm sure there are other ways but thats what worked for me.

LOL...I find that if my pants are cut low enough, I can still wear my pre-preg ones. If they are too high on the waist, forget about it! Then I have to wear my belly band. Smile

Love seeing all these cute bellies!!! Everyone looks amazing! Smile

Krista, I have dry hair too!! It is crazy, I was hoping for nice shiny hair too, lol. I usually have oily hair that is hard to stay on top of, now I can go days without washing and it isn't greasy. It was also one of my earliest pregnancy signs, so weird!
