    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!

    Yours in health,

    Okay, so I know TP Tuesday makes more sense, but somehow I always forget to post that topic on Tuesday. I don't work on Mondays, so my Tuesdays are like Mondays. Anyway, next time I go to the restroom I plan to wrap my belly and see how many squares around I am these days. If you want to participate post your results here with how far along you are, and if you participated before how many squares you were the last time.

    10.5 squares at 22w4d.

    Last time I measured I was 15 weeks and was 10 squares. I think my belly has gotten a lot fuller since then, like it doesn't stick out more, but it's more of a pronounced bump now.
