12 Week Triplet Belly Picture

Until I saw the comparison of 11 and 12 week belly pictures, I didn't think I had expanded much, but well, I have! I do not generally run around in bikini tops, but we had just taken A swimming at Gramma's house, and I was hot. I am often hot now, and not in a Sports-Illustrated-Swimsuit-Issue kind of way. More like who-turned-on-the-heat-hormonal kind of way. Not as attractive.



On the weight gain front, I am proud to say that I have gained 9 pounds or so! I never thought I would be happy about it, but all the doctors and nurses stress it to me about every 2 minutes, so I am eating when I can, and trying to get a good amount of protein, too. My thighs are starting to show it, and it is not pretty. I knew that early weight gain to build up fat stores had to go somewhere, I just hoped it would be my breasts and my belly... not so much. Today when I put on my bikini, I was saying I looked like my hips and thighs had grown (in a sad voice) and my daughter comes in and says, "Oh Mommy! You haven't grown. You are still short, so don't worry!" She always yanks me right back to what matters. In this case, baby-growing, not looking toned in a bikini.

  2. OMG! Love the belly.

    I've also been disappointed by how much of my weight gain has gone to my thighs. It's not like I really need any more in the boobs, but really?

  4. That's an impressive change in one week! I wish I could catch up to you a bit in the weight gain, though!

  5. Oh, your baby bump is BEAUTIFUL! I'm already bigger, and although I'm in love with my bump, the weight that I've gained has gone to all the wrong places (upper arms, hiney, thighs). Ugh. I feel your pain, but you look oh so stunning!

    Re: the exhaustion. Your comment on my blog made me feel less alone in all this. When I reach the top of the staircase, I need to take a moment to catch my breath! I'm working full time, and by mid-afternoon, it's such a battle to stay awake. I, too, wake up in the middle of the night constantly and feel more tired in the mornings than I did when I went to bed the night before.

    I really hope the fatigue eases soon, for both of us. Hang in there, Carrie.

  6. I love your belly! It's so cute!
    I've only got the one growing, plus I'm heavier to start with so it's going to be a long time yet before I look like I have a belly.
