Belly growing over night

well i need an explanation here...

Am i going insane or did my belly really just grow over night?

i always look down at my belly everyday hoping for it to get bigger so the baby has more room...well..this morning my belly was friggen huge and it still is..

Ever since i started to put the stretch mark cream on ive noticed that my belly is growing better and faster...

is this because my skin is now able to stretch easier because of that cream or is it because my body is ready to grow? 21 weeks pregnant

  • Thats when I "popped" with my first. Before that I had the flattest stomach. Then with my second I got big at the beginning.

  • well you are 21weeks.. thats usually the time when the belly starts to get bigger day by day :)...

    but i remember a friend of mine.. her belly grew over night too.. hehe.. it was funny but also creepy :P
    (for me it was creepy... i was a little younger and didnt know much about pregnancies back then)

    I doubt that its because of the cream.. its just the time where the bellys start growing faster.

  • I remember that! On the way to the bathroom from the bed, you go past mirrored closet doors, and I would pass them and be like, Holy crap!! I never quite got used to having my belly, then he came out!
