What do you think?

Do you think I measure small, normal, big? A lot of people keep telling me 'you're getting so big', but i feel small compared to others i've seen at 22 weeks...

Note: I'm 22weeks and 3 days in these pictures [11/5/08].

I'm 5'2, weighed 90lbs prepreg-->weigh 110lbs 22 week.

  • can't tell by a photo. depending on your muscles, your belly won't protrude as much.

    what's your fundal height? the measurement from your pubic bone to the top of your uterus.

  • got a measuring tape? you can do it your self, although you may be a cm or so off if you don't know exactly where the top of your uterus is.
    you measure from the top of your uterus - so, walking the fingers down until you feel that "ledge" that is the top of the uterus. Then, you measure down to the top of the pubic bone.

    Typically, after 20 weeks or so, it starts to somewhat correlate your weeks with the centimeters, give or take 2cm or so.

  • well the reason your size seems so big to others is because you are so tiny!!! Your baby belly is huge on that lil frame, whereas a thicker girl like me it wouldn't be as noticed... you are fine, don't worry about what people are saying :P Just enjoy it :)
