It's a good thing Snooki gave birth to her first son, Lorenzo, this weekend, because it looked like the petite star was literally about to pop in the weeks leading up to the birth.

How impressively big did Jersey Shore's itty-bittest castmate get? In this case, a picture says way more than a thousand words. On the left, we have a pic of Snooki back at the very end of December, right around the time she got pregnant. On the right is a picture of Snooks a few days before she gave birth.

Enjoy!
