I've been having cramps, not super painful but a bit worse then normal for the past 4 or 5 days. I woke up this morning (i'm 15 weeks) and it was like my stomach just kind of popped out over night. Before if i tried to suck in my stomach i couldn't see anything, now there is no sucking in ANYthing although in my opinion I think I look more chubby in the lower belly then pregnant! Everyone at work keeps telling me im still tiny but it was so weird that overnight my little belly just popped right out.

Where's my picture?! Come on girl, you gotta get on top of those!

At least you had a 'super flat tummy'! lol. I seriously looked the same way until I was about 25wks, and even past then I didn't grow too much. Stupid pelvis was big enough to cradle her the whole time, lol. This is 29wks... do I look pregnant?! lol

mine feel harder. Mine are not saggy. Ive been wearing really good support bras you can get at maternity stores. Very comfortable. They have some you can sleep in to that you cant even feel!!! Maybe if you get a better supportive bra they wont as much??? I think the stretch marks are b/c our poor girls grow so fast, i even did the coco butter and i still notice them. They may have been darker if i didnt do it? I dunno, im not really sure if it helped lol.

problem is i have a webcam built into my laptop but no mouse so i have to figure out how to take a picture of my body while standing far away and still be able to click the laptop. Does that make sense? lol I'll borrow my moms digital when i see her this weekend.

OH i got the fetal doppler in the mail! its not a digital one, I get that one next week from a new company and im returning this one but its soooo awesome.

Also I've been having a hard time sleeping even though i dont have a big belly and at Thyme Maternity I bought this pregnancy wedge. It looks a huge blue peice of cheese (really soft lol) and it slides under to support your belly when your on your side. I HIGHLY recommend it.

i was wondering about the wedge!!!! I feel like pillows do not support enough when you lay on your side. When i was looking at them they felt hard. Do they feel that way when you sleep with it??? I move around a lot too, so i was concerned about that.

omg, I have 9 pillows on my bed, one is a body pillow, and I can't get comfortable. I think their starting to sag, because their sooooo heavy. I went from a C to a DD already. Their killing me, and to top it off they leak...pretty bad. I wake up and my chest is sticky. Its gross. Yeah I got a sleep bra Smile Its comfy, and I'm waiting till I get paid to get a new bra, I'm starting to stretch out my other ones.

The wedge feels hard but its not uncomfortable at ALL. I thought it was weird and wouldn't do anything but it does way more then any of my pillows can. It needs to be kind of firm to be a good support but your stomach will still kind of sink into it.

C to a DD? lol i wish. Mine went up from a B to a C and im hoping they aren't going to get much bigger.

wow. I will def. try the wedge!! I was just worried about spending the money on it and not liking it. Plus none of my friends who are preg. have ever used it. Yeah i have 10 pillows right now lol. Poor josh gets pushed all the way over to the edge of the bed. I keep asking him if we can get another king size bed(thats what we have right now) and connect it to the one we have now. He said no. haha. Yea mine went from a 36 B to a 38 C. Josh loves them lol. But i really want them to just stay where they are at. I never dreamed they would get so big!!
