Preggo Picture

8_months_pregnantIn support of Karen at Big Tradeoff, who fears she is the world’s hugest pregnant woman ever, here is a picture of me in 1991, 8 months pregnant with my 3rd child. As you can see, my 3 year old was experiencing a ‘sympathy’ pregnancy, compliments of a rather large party balloon. And almost hidden behind my enormousness is my #2 child, 19 months at the time. Every time I see this picture I get a chuckle. I think at the time my ‘waist’ measure somewhere around 50 inches. Hard to fathom… If you have a picture that you would like to share to comfort Karen in her fear of hugeness, go on over to her place and leave her a comment with a link!


  1. I’m 5 foot 1 inch…guess what I looked like pregnant!…I remember knocking off a picture at a funeral with my tum tum when I was preg with the now seven year old. Very embarassing, but I got back down…

  2. THANKS MARY!!!!

    I love the little balloon tummy too. That is way too cute.

  3. Now that is a cute picture!!

  4. Awww! I love the sympathy’ pregnancy. So cute. 🙂

  5. I always tried to avoid having my photo taken when I was huge-pregnant. But now I’m glad to have a few pictures. Someday I can remind my kids: “just look what I went through for you!”
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. Can totally relate and I think I had the same valance (in the background). Nothing like a little poof.

  7. Oh, I remember how huge I got with my first!! I am not sure if I was brave enough to let a picture be taken though!!

  8. I wish I had a scanner. My mother’s 3rd child was 12lbs at birth, talk about being the biggest pregnant woman ever! ha!

  9. That is so awesome…being a midwife- you can imagine that I just love the belly pictures!

  10. I love the ‘sypathy’ pregnant your three year old is showing. Soooooooooo ADORABLE.
