Breast & Tummy – One Month to Go (Anonymous)

I’ve gained 28lbs and I have 4 weeks to go. This is our first baby, I’m due on my 35th birthday, my husband is also 35, we’ve been together since we were 19. My stomach has remained stretch mark-free up until now, mostly because of genetics but also because I’ve been drinking a gallon of water a day and my weight gain was slow and steady . My breasts have some but so far not too bad, I don’t know what’s going to happen after the milk comes in but I will breastfeed regardless of what shape my breasts will end up in. It’s hard not to worry about what my body will look like after but right now we are at the last month of pregnancy and so excited to meet or little pumpkin (we want the sex to be a surprise). I’m also worried about the c-section scar as my doctor told me that my baby is transverse right now and I may have to have a cesarean if my baby doesn’t move in time. Anyway, here’s one boobie (the other is the same it’s just that this was the clearest cameraphone pic) and here’s a tummy profile.

    Aww…I envy you right now,I could feel your exitement as I read your words :)
    I was also worried about what my breasts would look like with my first pregnancy (I was 18),but I breast fed my son for 6 months and apart from the pain when the milk came in,I didnt have any other side effects,and the few stretch marks I did get, have faded with time and now I cant see them at all.
    I hope all goes well and I wish you an easy labour or c-section.
    You look amazing!! :)

    You look beautiful! Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. Oh, and you can help turn your baby!!! Start now with optimal fetal positioning and talk to your baby. There is so much you can do to help that lil one turn to avoid a C-section. Of course, in the end, sometimes they have a mind of their own and know how they want to be born. Mine were both breech – my first a C-section and my second a homebirth. :) Here is the link to spinning babies, which is about fetal positioning techniques: http://www.spinningbabies.com/
    Blessings to you…

    There are lots of techniques you can use to get a baby to move, and you have a few weeks to go. Moxibustion, heat, light, positioning yourself, check it out online, there are tons of resources on getting babies to turn.

    You look great!

    My second baby was transverse, he turned on his own a few days before he was born. Luckily, because I did not want to have a c-section. However, I would have been prepared for it if I did have to have it.

    Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy and try those techniques mentioned in the other comments.
