The new comment is "Wow! You've really popped out recently!" I guess it is like seeing your little niece who you haven't seen for 1 year, and being amazed at how much she's grown. The growth is gradual and steady for me, but it must be weird for people who don't see me on a daily basis.
I've gained about 25-30 pounds, depending on what scale I'm on - or what I had for dinner the night before! I feel great - only had a pinched muscle in my lower back/butt region which made me limp for a week or so, but that has gotten better! Sleeping is getting tougher, only my sides feel comfortable.
