This is what I have to look forward to...

I have been getting so many comments about how I don't look pregnant yet.... Here I've been telling everyone how huge I get when I'm pregnant and because I haven't gained 30 pounds yet... ( remember people... I'm only about 17 weeks... it will come) that I'm either #1- a liar, and I really don't get really really big. Or #2- that THIS TIME I won't get so big. Well, all I have to say is HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.


Here is proof. This is what I have to look forward to:

The day I went in to deliver Big brother (March 30, 2007) Gained a total of 48 pounds. He weighed 9 lbs 7 oz at 5 days early.







The day I went in to deliver Mama's Boy (March 14, 2008) Look at those sausage fingers!!!! Gained a total of 30 pounds... but remember I got pregnant again 3 months after I had Big brother, so I had only lost 25 of my 48 gained from him. So while the 30 pounds gained from mama's boy, is less than the 48 gained from big brother, I still weighted 4 pounds MORE when I delivered amam's boy, than I did with big brother. He weighed 8 lbs 3 oz at 2 weeks early. I'm sure you really care... right?



While I gain LOTS and LOTS of weight when I have babies and I CONSTANTLY get asked... seriously... CONSTANTLY get asked if I'm having twins... it has been worth it every time.
Because I also get this:


TOTALLY worth it!
Bet you can't tell which is which...

Did I miss something? I had no idea you were pregnant! Congratulations!! It doesn't matter that you gained all the weight, but that you LOST it! I'm still carrying around stuff from Trevor and he is two! You're awesome and like you said, the babies are worth it!

second... you totally shrink down to size.. if yo want to feel better about it then i'll send you a picture! hello, ezra is almost 2 and rylie is 4 1/2 months now and im heavier than ever. so enjoy your bowel of icecream knowing that you will be where you want to be shortly after the baby comes! are you going to find out what you are having??? i can't wait!

Maybe it means you're having a girl this time! My sister carried totally different and had very different weight gain with her girls than she did with her boy.

You have to get that big because you are so teeny otherwise...where else can the baby possibly go?! And you looked so great in the last pictures up of you, you don't need to worry about the gain when you lose it all like that! Definitely worth it, and I can't tell them apart, but I'll take a guess...AJ first, Mikko second?

Wow Brandi that is impressive. You really do get big. But you lost it quite fast, which is a big plus in my book. I give you props for even posting the pics.
