Then and Now

Filed Under: Life

My original intention with this post was to show you JUST HOW BIG I’VE GOTTEN[!!!].

I have this basketball sized thing on the front of me and it moves independently of the rest of my body.  I know that there are feet somewhere down there but I haven’t seen them in a while and the pressure on my inferior vena cava is causing some impressive lower extremity swelling.

But, once I got the pictures loaded, I was struck by two things.

#1 I don’t look that different and #2 my hair looks licked in the newer pictures.  Also, what the fuck’s going on with my mouth in that one picture?  I don’t remember doing that while I was taking the photo.

That was three things wasn’t it?  Oops.

Here are the pictures.  Can you see a difference?

And before anyone asks, I’m wearing a bathing suit in these pictures.  In the 27 weeks pictures, I was wearing pants [obviously] over the bathing suit bottoms.


  1. You’re adorable! And I love your swimsuit – very pretty!

  3. The swimsuit disclaimer cracked me up. Hey, at least you’re in a swimsuit. At 33 weeks I was in jammies all day. Happy WW.

  6. I wanted so badly to be able to swim when I was pregnant with my twins. I was so big that maternity clothes were out of the question! I had to get size 3x stretchy pants and tees. And there definitely was no bathing suit big enough to fit at that point!

  7. Yeah I see a difference. Not only are you much bigger in the second, you are no longer smiling. Not fun being pregnant anymore at this point. Hope the rest of it is smooth and you have an easy birth.

  10. What’s really freakin’ funny is that *at the time* I could see a HUGE difference. Now, looking back at myself over a year later, I can’t see a difference at all.
