High HCGs and a big ol' belly!

Hi girls! I just got my HGCs back and they're at 54000! That's the tippity top of the range for 6 weeks so I am thrilled to hear it! My progesterone is 28.1, which is also top of the range, yay! You know what else is the top of the range? My over-zealous belly!

This is just a quick phone pic of me as I got ready to leave this morning. Seriously, it's hard to convince myself that just a few weeks ago I was flat-tummied and felt thin. I feel like I must have always been this shape to be here at just 6ish weeks. I guess that's just how things go with your third though. I'd love to hear how the rest of you are doing!

PS, i tried to shrink the pic in like 8 different ways but BBC code on pg.org seriously blows. Why doesnt the site accept html anymore?! I used to be a web designer and yet no matter how hard I try, I cannot get a stupid image on here to actually abide by any size constraints. BBC code sucks! *that or I'm seriously dumb... I'm not ruling that out just yet*

This is my third baby as well and I feel super big already! I am pretty sure Im just bloated, but I think everything is already a bit stretched out in there anyways!! You look great!

Oh man, you should see how big it was tonight after dinner! I'd post a pic but it's too shameful.

Lol, well i suppose i can't rule out a multiple occupancy and probably won't know anyway until the 20 week US. Until then I'm just a chubster as far as I know.

I think you look great! And everything is going great for you so embrace it! I'm also on my 3rd and have more symptoms than I ever did with my other 2. And waaaaay more bloated as well! I was very heavy when I got pg with my son. Then dieted and was very small when I got pg with my DD. I didn't pop out with my DS ( and pass the fat) until 5 months. My DD I didn't show until 16/17 weeks, they say because she implanted on the very back of my ueterus and the doc even said I'd be a late "bloomer". He was right. I only wore maternity clothes for a month. So I guess there is alot to take into consideration! But you look great!

I could totally put on maternity pants and look 5mo baked, lol! I guess our tummies remember! With my last pregnancy I just made the switch to maternity clothes, but I'm going to try to hold out for a little while this time!

Preg.org has changed so much, I'll have to figure out how to post a pic!

You look like a very tiny framed girl, plus this is your 3rd, so you'll pop earlier. You look adorable!!!
