Seeing Double

This weekend, my bestie Leah (please go to her blog and say hi!) visited, and she mentioned that she thought I was smaller than with Luke. I've actually gained the exact same amount of weight so far, but I do feel smaller than I did with him. I'm not sure if it's that I'm carrying differently, or if it's because of the pregnancy workout DVD that kicks my butt HARD every night, or if it's all in my head, so I booted up my old desktop to snag a few photos of when I was 28 weeks pregnant with Luke.
For comparison, I even pulled out the same shirt I was wearing in these photos and tried to pose the same, but mostly I failed.

28 weeks with Luke


28 weeks pregnant with #2


I think the weight is definitely not going to my face as much this time (YAY), but past that, I am not sure. What do you think?
































And just to make this the most picture heavy post EVER, here is a photo of my mom when she 28 weeks pregnant with my older sisters!

Let me just go on the record as stating two things: I am so glad that there have been amazing advancements in the field of maternity clothes since the 70s, and I cannot believe my mom only gained seventeen pounds with TWINS (and she carried them to 38 weeks). Look at how tiny her arms were!

You look great. Do you know if it's a boy or a girl? IMO boys tend to make the tummy stick out in a more pointy shape(like a basketball), and girls tend to make a more flat rounded tummy (like a pillow). So, maybe this one's a girl.

Good luck with the pregnancy and way to go with the working out. That was always difficult or un-allowable for me, so YOU GO GIRL! :)

My first thought was that you are carrying completly different and I think it's a girl.

:D
and you look fabulous, as always.

You look amazing and I see where you get your gorgeous looks from. Your mom is a hottie! Love it. Love the bump. It looks pretty similar to Luke's bump.

You do look amazing! You have such a wonderful glow!!!

And yes, you are most definitely smaller this time around. I was also smaller the second time around and I had a little bluebird named Mia :)

You look JUST like your mom, who was quite adorable in that stylin' maternity top!!

Emilie said...

I was also thinking that you look quite a bit like your mama =) if the picture wasn't obviously from 30 years ago I'd think maybe it was you ;)

Erin, you're such a cutie pregnant lady! I just love the photos.
And I'm sure you hear this all the time, as I do as well, but you look just like your mother! I think it every time I see pictures of you and/or your mom. Very cute!

I think you look great... and alittle smaller too!!

*Lissa* said...

You look amazing! I totally think you are having a girl. ;o)

And your mom?! SEVENTEEN pounds with twins? OMG. I wish.

Sheesh. I can't tell on the size thing but I'm still convinced that you must be related to Drew Barrymore. Somehow. Some way.

Laura $ said...

you look JUST like your mom! and 17 lbs.? if she wasn't your mom, i might be inclined to call her a mean name! hahaha

InTheFastLane said...

You look great either way! And look at your mom...twins! Yikes! They must have sucked the fat out of her arms :)

Leah said...

okay, i know some people say they don't see a difference but i think you are carrying so differently! maybe not necessarily a size difference just that your bump is distributed in a different way.

i am glad to see these comparison photos.

Your belly doesn't look to be poking out as much this time. You seem to just be carrying differently. You are a gorgeous pregnant Momma! : )

Oh and you and your Mom look SO much alike! WOW!

Jenni Jiggety said...

You look really REALLY good! Almost like you just have a pillow under there!

anymommy said...

You are carrying a little differently - but you look great in both pregnancies! And wow, that top on your mom, thank god for Old Navy maternity!

Erin said...

You look amazing! I cannot wait for my belly to be that big! I just want to start really showing so I feel preggo! It's hard being 12 weeks and feeling like a blimp! But, I wouldn't want it any other way!

I got to the doc today. I'll post on FB how it goes. :) Hugs to you. Have ag reat day, babe!

Kristin said...
