  • hmm, who cares what people think
    i would just be extra prepared if he comes early or late, don't think its a bad thing, just maybe a mistake counting weeks.
    area you wishing they said you looked bigger? does it matter? you're having a boy yeaaaaaaaaaaa!

  • People kept saying I look soooo big. I was not over weight or did I have a big baby. Blah to some people. Congrats on the baby boy!

  • Everyone is different in how they carry based on their body type, weight, etc. I looked HUGE with all of mine and everyone always thought I was having twins or was due "any day now" from about 6 months on and that was never the case. I am super short with a short torso and my belly had nowhere to go but out.

  • I don't find out what I am having until Friday, but I am 19.5 weeks and people tell me I am having twins because I am already so bigh. Which 2 altrasounds and a listen to the heartbeat the doctor tells me there is only one, but everyone is still telling me it has to be twins

  • Well I think it's kind of funny because I am not used to seeing women "show" at only 10 weeks.

  • Some women carry their pregnant bodies differently than others. When I was full-term with my daughter, you couldn't tell I was pregnant standing directly behind me. Once I turned around, ba-BAM.
