What did your belly look like at 32 weeks?

With my daughter, I looked like maybe I was smuggling a rather large pumpkin under my shirt.



When my shirt was lifted up, my belly was revealed to be covered in tons of vertical stretch marks. The small amount of belly fat I'd had prior to pregnancy had, for some reason, remained at the bottom of my abdomen while the rest stretched, so there was a saggy bag hanging off the bottom of my preggo belly...



But it sure was cool when my daughter flipped or kicked and I could see my belly move like scene from an alien movie, lol.

  • It looked like a large ball under my shirts. you could only tell i was pregnant from the front or sides.. stretch marks were only on my sides (love handles), below the bikini line and a few on my inner thighs (all the places i didn't think to rub cocoa butter in.. go figure!)

  • I had preeclampsia and a 10.5 pound baby...so by 32 weeks I was absolutely massive. My stomach is absolutely destroyed. I gained about 100 pounds and about 50-60 was just water that I gained in the last three months. My body was pretty stressed out and unhappy.

  • I was huge when I was pregnant with my triplets, but normal size with my twins. I know my feet looked like freaking two pieces of corn beef. Weird, but I never got an stretch marks, gained 50 pounds with each triplet pregnancies and 65 pounds with each twin pregnancies, my body went back to its usual shape aobut 3 months after giving birth.
