33 weeks #3


So here I am at 33 weeks on my 3rd child.
I'm gaining about 1 pound a week.
I feel huge.

One person says, "looks like you're about to pop"; another person says, "you're just starting to look pregnant".

Both people are crazy.


Which would you rather have: a cute pregnancy belly, but a ton of stretch marks so that your stomach will never look the same..

-or-

a wide "everywhere" kind of pregnancy, but your belly goes back to normal afterward?

I've got the first.

You look absolutely beautiful. You have that glow about you. Congrats on your pregnancy.

I had both the bads the wide tummy and the stretch marks!!!!

I get the second but I also get the massive stretch marks...

I just want to know why with each new pregnancy, the stretch marks stretch longer? What is up with that? Shouldn't they all use the same stretch marks the first one created on his way through? Just seems unfair to me. LOL

You look exactly the way you are supposed to at 33 weeks. Beautiful, happy, slightly uncomfortable & excited to meet your first little girl!

I'm a #1 with you. When you posted the video of your little girl moving, I felt like I was looking at my belly. Regardless of what people say, I think you look so super cute pregnant :)

How did I lose out, I had the wide 'everywhere' pregnancy and tons of stretch marks. ;)

But you're certainly a cute preggo! Just straight out--nowhere else!

You still look skinny except for that torpedo coming out of your belly!

You look great.

Besides, some people get wide belly and also stretch marks and some are lucky to get small, cute belly and no stretch marks. I'm somewhere in between. Not many marks, wasn't too wide but the belly wasn't a little basketball either. I think it's all in the genetics. Blame our Moms and Grandmas, that's what I think we should do. :o)

You're almost there and you look so cute.

I would rather have a cute belly while I was pregnant no matter what it meant after since no one ever sees my belly anyway. Stretch marks are genetic. My mom doesn't have any, 6 kids and not a single mark, my dad on the other hand got stretch marks every time he grew, along with all of his kids. so you can blame your parents for the stretch marks. You look great, but you always do, and a pound a weeks is totally normal for the end of a pregnancy (as depressing as that may seem)

I have been bad at checking blogs lately so I forgot about your pregnancy blog.... I've had a good time catching up. You look so good and your almost done!! Having a little girl is so fun. By the looks of the 3-d she is adorable too!!

I have the wide everywhere belly but also low stretch marks....

i had a wide all over pregnancy.. maybe it just felt that was because I gained 70 pounds.. My butt will never be the same but my stomach came out without one stretch mark.
