Bare belly pic and what is growing in my yard?

35 weeks today!

Is this a watermelon or pumpkin growing in my backyard? The vines are full of tiny little thorns and it is growing SUPER fast!!!

you look great! Definitely carrying low!

No idea on what's growing. 3 or 4 years ago I spent the whole summer taking care of the 1 watermelon growing in my garden, the only thing that survived to fall and when it was perfect watermelon size I cut it from the vine and showed my dh and neighbors who laughed and said it was a pumpkin....but it was green...no doubt, I left it on the porch a few days and it turned orange! I've done pumpkins but still haven't successfully gotten a watermelon from my garden, same this year, they started off fine and died off mid-way through the summer

Haha, thanks Mandi! So, maybe it is a pumpkin? I guess if it turns to orange I will know. My daughter said she planted a pumpkin seed but I don't know where she would have gotten it from! Whatever it is, it is definitely fun to watch it grow and change. I have NEVER grown any fruit or vegetable before so this vine of mystery is very exciting for me.

Are there any orange flowers around? pumpkins USUALLY come with orange flowers.

Yes, definitely orangey-yellow color flowers on the vine. They shrivel up and new ones appear.

My first instinct was pumpkin. I guess you won't have to buy one this year if it continues to do well Lol

Holy baby belly for 35 weeks, you look great!!

Cute Belly Picture!

Just wanted to add that with the dark green lines going through the melon it looks more like a watermelon. The pumpkin plant would have some sort of orange flowers on it (more than just one bud). Hope you find out what it is!!!!
