    It's TP Thursday! You know what that means ladies. Share, how far along are you and how many squares?

    TIP* For those of you who have never participated. TP=Toilet Paper. Every Thursday (it's slacked lately) you wrap toilet paper around the largest part of your baby bump, and count how many squares it takes. It's just a fun way to measure :).
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I am 23w1d and measure 10 squares. It's weird, I have measured 10 squared for like 6-8 weeks now. I know that's gotta be off because of how big I measure in inches, and also because I am noticeably bigger. lol w/e :)

    I thought I posted this yesterday but I guess I didn't lol...

    I'm 23 weeks and still at 11 squares-have been for 6-8 weeks now. But I've noticed I'm starting to get a little wider too so I guess the rest of me is filling out instead of just my belly lol!! Hope everyone has a good day!
