I just gave birth sat july 25th, 2015 to an 8.1lb baby boy, my 3rd and only 1 that went past my due date and it was by 6 days. I only weighed 156lbs. I posted this photo at 40 weeks and was told by someone that my pregnant selfie made them want to puke that he didn't post chunky dunk photos Know it happens at all sizes. You are beautiful and good job carrying a precious life!"
