13w2d

Belly pix taken yesterday at 13w2d are posted below. I posted two this time because after taking the first picture, I realized I've been trying to stand up straight, the effect being that I was sucking in (as much as I could). So the second picture shows the belly fully relaxed. Scary how much I've grown in one week, eh?

What's really strange to me is that even with the belly, I've not gained any additional weight since last week and I have only gained a couple of pounds in total. Yesterday morning I was two pounds heavier than I was when I left for Baltimore, but most of it disappeared by this morning. So, if the belly gets bigger and I don't really put on weight, where does it come from? My legs, arms, and ass don't seem any smaller to me, so it isn't like I'm losing elsewhere. To make things stranger, my boobs have definitely gotten bigger (although you can't tell from these pix because they are dwarfed by belly!) as well. Baffling.

Oh, and if you have any advice to offer on twin strollers/car seats, please see my last post to join in on the great stroller debate of 2008.

Wow - your belly is amazing! Check out LauraC's twin belly pics at (http://www.flickr.com/photos/99098514@N00/sets/72057594123498310) and she participates in a mothers-of-multiples blog at (http://howdoyoudoit.wordpress.com/). I don't have twins, I'm not expecting twins, but I still read Laura's blog everyday. She is awesome. (Did I say that already?)

I couldn't help but think of you and the great stroller debate when I saw these two ladies on an episode of Rachel Ray. They started an "event planning" business for moms-to-be. It's a great idea! They offer tons of tips and recommedations on everything from what stroller to pick out to nursery decor etc. Thought it might be helpful. www.thebabyplanners.com

I saw these two ladies on an episode of Rachel Ray. They started an "event planning" business in LA for moms-to-be. They help you plan everything you need for your baby's birth. It's brilliant! Obviously, you wouldn't be able to avail of their one-on-one consultation or personal shopper service, but the website has tons of tips & recommedations Thought it might be helpful to you and some of your other readers. www.thebabyplanners.com
