    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    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.

    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. :)

    I'm 21 wks and 5 days and i am at 8 squares
    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.
