    I'm 20 weeks and 4 days and still at 11 squares-have been for a month now. But I just realized I'm carrying really low so maybe that's part of it.

    20w1d=10 squares

    For like the 3rd or 4th week.

    I don't think it's very accurate. It's hard to measure with TP without it tearing :P haha. I have issues getting it in the right spot. I measured with a tape measure the other day, and I was a little over 39 inches.

    I'm 16 weeks and 9 squares. First time I've done this. I felt kind of silly wrapping TP around my belly, but it sounded so amusing I couldn't pass it up. :)

    Atlas63 responded:
    I had trouble wrapping the TP around me today. 2 weeks ago I measured 10 1/4 squares. Today at 21 weeks 3 days I measured 9 squares. I know that she is alive and well (she was bouncing off my bladder earlier today.) I didn't switch brands either so I don't know what to think. It seems like I've shrunk.
