The belly is growing...

Well, we are officially starting week 32 today. I can't believe how fast the time is going by! Pretty soon it will be Christmas and then our little girl will come about a month after that. I really didn't gain much weight at the beginning. In fact, I even lost a few pounds around month 4, but at our last check up I was back to gaining and I have gained 18 pounds overall. I know they say you are supposed to gain between 25 and 30 pounds, but I am not trying to go that route.
The doctor said that normally babies at week 31 are about 3.5 ibs and 15 inches - from now on, her weight gain will exceed her growth in length. Genetics also plays a big part in that growth.
As requested by Kayli, here are pictures of my large belly. I know that most of you will not believe that it is real unless you see my skin with your own eyes, so that picture is there to. Sorry my belly is so white!
