Wordless | Bump Ahead

Okay, so for those that are following my blog for their first rodeo of me being pregnant, here's the deal:
  • I make big babies. Like 9.5 pound monster babies born 2 weeks early.
  • My belly gets really big when I'm pregnant. I measured 6 weeks ahead with Brynn.
  • This is {obviously} my 3rd baby. 4th pregnancy.

And in preparation for said monster babies, for some reason the moment I get pregnant my uterus decides to freak out, go into survival mode and expand like crazy. I guess it just knows what to do and so it blows up like a big ol' used balloon. As my doctor put it.

But because I lost 30 pounds in between Brynn and this baby, I didn't think my belly would show as fast as my pregnancy with Brynn. {See here.}

I was wrong.

6 weeks
{yep, you read that right}

6 weeks

7 weeks
{looks a bit higher to me}
7 weeks

8 weeks
{and me dying of a sinus infection}
8w1

So, there's that. I can already feel my uterus {i.e. not the baby} pushing up and I have round ligament pain like whoa. Good times. And for the record, I had an appointment this week and lost 3 pounds.

For those that want to follow along, I'll put my belly picture in my weekly updates {probably on Mondays} from now on. But, at almost 9 weeks pregnant, I can already feel a big difference from my 8 week picture.

Should be a fun 9 months! =)

Whoa!! ALL belly though!! I popped WAY early this time around- to the point where I felt like I should be lying about when I was due.. complete strangers were congratulating me in september and I'm due in April! Yay for big babies! Mine was 8 lb 9 and 22 in long- not as big as your babies for sure but no peanut either!! BIG congrats!! :)

Mama Mandolin said...

Wait What!? Oh my goodness woman. And you look gorgeous!

Mama Mandolin said...

At least you don't really have to go through that "I'm not fat, I'm just pregnant" stage haha you're clearly pregnant. And that's crazy because, baby is just a tiny little peanut!

MrsKBJ said...

You look great mama! congrats on baby no. 3! I still can't get over how quick you pop! Your baby bump is adorable!

amy said...

GOODNESS!! You aren't lying! Good thing you look beautiful ;)

Tracy said...

Your belly is so adorable! I wish I had charted my belly progress with pictures. With my third, I ballooned out and was unable to hide it and keep it a secret by 8 weeks...I looked about 5 months pregnant...though I was super sick and lost almost 10 lbs my first trimester. Looking forward to watching that little tummy grow!

Andrea said...

You look adorable! Skinny and pregnant :)

Dominique@Dominique's Desk said...

Congrads on your pregnancy. Your belly looks great. Mine wasn't showing that much till 5mths on for all 3.

Jamie @ Making Mama Happy said...

Whoa! You're not joking when you say you show early. You're all belly though and it's beautiful!

Amy T said...

I guess you can't really keep it a secret - at all!

Madonna said...

I thought you were kidding! How can you even keep your pregnancy a secret? You make a very cute pregnant woman though!

Kathleen Hall Gee said...

Wow, just wow. You look awesome though. Most of us gotta wait 20 weeks to start seeing that cute baby bump! =)

Tara said...

thats is crazy; i tottally have belly envy!
I lost 2 babies before my first & wanted to be HUGE i wanted it yell to the world YO IM FINALLY PREGNANT. yeah not so much did that happen!

This pregnancy is a little different, im a little bigger this time around!

Regardless, your belly is adorbs! just perfect!

Sarah [NurseLovesFarmer.com] said...

Wow, Jenni! WOW! You look GREAT! That is the nicest, earliest...non-bloated early pregnant belly I've ever seen!

Sarah said...

I love your belly. I have huge babies and bellies. I didn't know you had a miscarry. :( Praying everything goes good.

Becki said...

Cute, cute belly!

Sarah said...

Holy Moley that is an adorable big belly! It may be big, but it is so round and pregnant looking (if that makes any sense). Even at 9 months, I felt like people were probably looking at me and questioning, "Is she pregnant or just fat??". I have pregnant belly envy...LOL!

Theresa said...

Congrats on the baby! You are an adorable pregnant woman. I, on the other hand, was not lol.

tahlia @ the parenting files said...

Cari and Cortnee @ Two Sasters said...

You look wonderful!!

Alexia said...

Oh man. How cute is your 8 week bump? Adorable! You look fantastic! And don't feel bad. I'm on baby #2 (third pregnancy) and I popped out like WHOA right away too. Guess some girls are just made for birthing babies ;)

Joyce Lansky said...

Six weeks? Six months? or Double Trouble?

Stephanie said...

Wow, that's crazy!! You look great though.

Jennifer said...

You are just too adorable! I love it!

Amy said...

You look awesome Jenni! Love that belly:) Congrats on # 3.

Mandy@ a sorta fairytale said...

Wowsa!! And I thought I popped out early with this little guy. Ha ha. But seriously, you look adorable!!! At least you fly past the awkward i-ate-too-much phase and skip straight to the yep-she's-definitely-preggo phase. Love it!

uwmomma said...

Oh I am in love with your preggo belly!! That is too cute how quickly you show.....I can't wait to follow along and see it grow ;)

kewkew said...

Wow, congratulations.

daytodaymoments said...

Mock-Turtle said...

6 weeks?! Good grief! You ARE making one huge baby... unless it's twins! Congrats all the same, you are looking very well.

Rebecca Doyle Photography said...

Awww! You look fabulous :)

Dumb Mom said...

Ok, whoa. I mean, you look adorable, and I love how it's all round and cute and perfect and stuff, but how are you even going to make it to 9months?! I was HUGE when I was pregnant too, and I can't say I can look back on that time and not shudder. Are you sure there aren't two in there?! Should I add in a few more things random strangers are going to say to you, just to get you prepared for it? Okay, I'm done. But I need to see how 6 months is looking so keep up the bump shots!

Jen said...

Oh you look so cute! And you don't even need to explain about the belly, believe me girl I know. I almost did not take a pregnancY test with this 3rd baby of mine for the sheer fact that my belly did all the explaining. I seriously looked in the mirror and at just 4 weeks - I swear I look 4 months. But like your said, your uterus just remembers what to do! And I too have the round ligament pain! Enjoy your pregnancy! :-)

Olivia Grace said...

You look absolutely beautiful!!! And I can totally relate: big babies equal big bellies. Everyone asked me if I was pregnant with multiples for both pregnancies!

MrsBartee.com said...

HI!! You look amazing!! And like other commenter said at least you dont have to go through the awkward phase of keeping it a secret but people are wondering why you looking fat :)

the mom diggity said...

Sooooo cute!!!!! You are so good at growing babies...that perfect little bump proves it :)

Mindi said...

I love the bump! Taking weekly pregnancy pictures is one of my favorite parts about being pregnant! And wow those are some big babies. Straight to 0-3 month clothes huh?

April @ Red-Dirt-Mama.com said...

I think you have one of the cutest baby bumps EVER! I look like a big fat blob -- this is precious!

Love, Chelsea said...

That is amazing how fast your body knows what to do! You look amazing especially being so tiny everywhere else :). It is nice that you get to skip the looking fat stage and go right to the looking pregnant stage! I'm 16 weeks and still kind of in between fat and pregnant ;)

J-Berg said...

So stinkin' adorable! Love it!

Kimberly said...

Nicole said...

Hi Jenni, I have been meaning to visit your blog for some time {since I'm following you on instagram} and finally I'm here! btw...I have monster babies too. Probably b/c I have a 6'11 monster husband. My first baby was 9.5lbs too and 22inches long :S I am not even joking when I say I'm nervous to have a second. You look amazing btw! pretty sure my uterus will be doing the same thing

robyn said...

I'm the same way, and the babies keep getting bigger - #3 was 10 lbs! You're the perfect kind of pregnant that I always wanted to be, though - I got big ALL OVER! Thanks for sharing the pics; looking forward to watching your progress!
