"Can't Get Any Bigger"

My mom has been insisting for the past two days that I simply "can't get any bigger" and that my baby is already huge. Now, I will admit to being very large-and-in-charge. But from the perspective of weight, I have only gained 6 pounds. My grandfather even remarked that I look as though my face is thinning out, and that I already have my pregnancy "glow."

All this to say, I'm still in my second trimester! I'm very worried about my baby's growth as it is. I know my mom means well but I honestly can only hope and pray bebe continues to grow. He has a lot of growing to do before he is done baking in there! So, in the interest of full disclosure, here is a picture from today:

I chose the worst picture of those we took to illustrate my girth. My husband is not a large guy and my dress was an empire waist; I swear most of this is baby! So tell me, do you think it is humanly possible for me to grow any more?


  1. Ignore her! Your baby is growing perfectly, and you look great. If it makes you feel better - I have already gained 25 lbs... and we have the same due date.

  2. You look great! I think different people have different opinions of "what a pregnant woman should look like" at just about every stage. Last night. the FIRST thing my FIL said to me was "Heather,you're looking....VERY pregnant" hello? no Happy Easter? Yeah, thanks dude!

  3. Girl you looked so cute today. I still think the shoe choice was crazy or brave. I can barely do heels when not pg. He will grow how he needs to grow.
