My babies go straight out in front of me, nothing on the sides. Nothing up high and nothing down low. Here is how I looked in my last pregnancy (obviously thinner, although there is only an 8 lb difference in starting and ending weight--both pregnancies gained about 25 lbs)... A friend called this photo "Torpedo Belly"! (and yes, she shot out like a torpedo!) I do think I have a bigger belly this time, so that probably means a bigger baby. I'm predicting 8 pounds. I have eaten a lot more this pregnancy, and a higher percentage protein (simply by virtue of eating more grains/beans versus last pregnancy which was mostly fruits and veggies exclusively) so maybe that grows a bigger belly/baby.
