I have an idea for a project, but will require some help. Specifically, from the local math whizzes and artists of this board,if they are willing.
It all started when I came across the picture above on this site. http://www.twinstuff.com/exptwo2.htm
"At 24 weeks, an expectant mother of a singleton is just beginning to show her pregnancy and her uterus is approximately the size of a ball 20 inches around. The twin mom at 24 weeks might look like a typical 32-week pregnancy and may have a uterus 28 inches around.
The triplet mom at 24 weeks may look like a singleton mom would appear at 36 weeks and her uterus would be about 33 inches around, or the size of a smallish beach ball. And at 24 weeks, the mom of quads might look as large as a standard pregnancy's mom at 40 weeks. She would be full-term size, with her uterus 36 inches around."
Looking at the picture, A thought came to my mind. "I love this picture! But it is a shame that it only stops at quadruplets. I would have liked to see the difference between higher multiples atOH WAIT!! LIGHTBULB!!"
and into my mind sprang the idea for the Super Pregnancy Chart Project.
The goal, is to recreate this kind of of picture, but instead stopping at singletons to quads, we go much higher in the multiple scale. And even better, we could do different weeks of pregnancy too!
This is where the math and art come in. To accomplish this, we need to know certain stats and perform calculations to figure out the size of the belly correctly, and the artists would create pictures based on the calculations and measurements of the math whizzes! I would suggest that we try to go for as realistic as possible in the drawings, make it look as close to the sample picture as possible. That way, it could be as (semi) realistic as we can make it, and maybe look like what a pregnancy that would look in real life?
I am aware that it is a big undertaking, but so were the quests, and if people are willing to help, it could be amazing!
So what does Pregchan Think?
