I am 5'2"...a shortie. When I was pregnant, I gained a lot of weight. I was just two pounds shy of 200 pounds two days before Reese was born. I was really, really heavy. I couldn't bend my fingers to make the "number 3" because my joints were so swollen. I had developed carpal tunnel in my right arm. I couldn't stand for very long because it was just so tiring.
But I still wore a bikini up to the day my water broke, because I just thought I was "pregnant in the belly".
It's only after looking back six years at the pictures from the day Reese was born that I realize just how heavy I was. It was craaaaazy!
