i'm huge too!
i painted my belly for halloween ... a punkin appropriately.
this is my second child.. and i thought i was huge with my first.
at 18 weeks i looked like i was about 8 months pregnant.
now at almost 24 weeks... i look like i'm about to burst. my belly button is already starting to get weird and uncomfortable (which didnt happen until around 32 weeks with my first)
everyone said i was going to have twins or trips.. and i didnt end up having an ultrasound until 19 weeks... so that was a long few months of waiting.
turns out theres only one in there... one big one i guess.
theres no telling until the big day... they can give you estimates through ultrasound.. but they're usually wrong.
i feel my baby kick like mad. it started earlier with this pregnancy... i felt my first definet movement around 15-16 weeks.. and actuall kicks started around 20 weeks. and now finally around 21 22 weeks my husband is able to feel them..but only when we lie down at night, and i finally get to relax, it seems my baby is most acctive at night... perrrrrfect. just when i get time to rest! lol
best of luck all you mommies!

I hear you too! Everyone tells me that I'm HUGE. I'm due at the end of February and am bigger than my best friend who is due at the end of December. LOL about the kicks...Mine kicks too but not when the DH is trying to feel the kicking! Seems like the little one knows his daddy and doesn't kick him!

My baby started kicking at 19 wks and he gets stronger everyday! LOL! He's very, very active...always moving! I'm bigger than everybody else I know who's pregnant and due before me. My doctor just told me I'm 10lbs overweight!! Oh well.

The more babies you have, the sooner and harder to kicks get early on. My sister-in-law is about to have her first baby and didn't really feel anything strong until around 25/26 weeks! This is my fourth and it seems like I felt it as soon as that kid grew legs! LOL! Also, in one of my pregnancy's my placenta was on the front so it buffered all the kicks. I didn't feel it as strong with that one until around 30 weeks.

I was actually worried I was carrying twins until I had my ultrasound a couple of weeks ago. It was nice to hear the doctor say that being big just means the baby is healthy and strong. When did yours start kicking? I definately feel my baby move a lot - fluttering movements, but don't feel actual hard kicks.

I hear ya! This is my first and I was in maternity clothes at 8 weeks!! Everything points to February 7th though regardless of how HUGE I am getting =) Glad to know we're in the same boat... one of my friends is due in another month and I'm bigger than her!
