I am another one in awe of how women carry babies--even the same woman during different pregnancies--differently.

I'm one who got round everywhere--even my face looked pregnant. I have stretch marks on my legs from being pregnant. I just retained a lot of fluid and everything swelled up. I felt cute and some people still claimed I was "tiny" but the following summer, after having my daughter, I tried on some of the pants I wore while I was pregnant, thinking I could re-use them (non maternity, but with a drawstring) and my legs and hips were swimming in them.
