post #21 of 143
I'll post mine! I haven't started taking pictures yet, but on Monday, I'll be 7 weeks, so I may as well start then. I'll edit this post to add my weekly pictures.

Weeks 7-17 on my blog now!

Tummy Pics

Hello ladies,

I think it's very important to keep a photo journal to document how your baby is growing. I am now seven weeks pregnant with my first child, and I took this picture last week:

If for any reason Facebook doesn't allow you to view the picture, just e-mail me at Kristin.Cortez@yahoo.com, and I will be happy to send you the picture.

I wish you all the best in your pregnancies.

God bless you,
Kristin

I'm 6 weeks today and just took my pic. I will try to post it tomorrow. I'll let you all know when I do.

By the way, all day sickness has hit me like a brick today. Thought I was going to get away w/ out it......wishful thinking I guess?

I have a question: Are y'all counting how many weeks you are from LMP or from conception??? I am 5 weeks LMP, but I find it hard to believe I will be showing in just 2 weeks!

Can't wait to see a lovely photo in a few weeks, when you're ready!

LMP, since that is how EDDs are calculated usually. Or, even if you calculate based on date of conception, you'd still consider yourself a few more weeks more that how many weeks since conception. Gosh, that sounds confusing, doesn't it! It's always funny, imo, that by the time your period is late, you're already 4-5 weeks pregnant, because you count the time before conception occurs.

Ack, that is confusing. I've been going by conception date, and can't believe I'm only 3 weeks. Ah... what is LMP?

LMP is 'last menstrual period'. But, calculating your due date based on LMP assumes that you conceived on day 14 or so of your cycle of course, that isn't true for all of us! So, if you know your conception date, you can more accurately calculate the date. There are online calculators, and I also have a gestational wheel, so I could tell you what the due date is with that if you want, too.
As an example, if you conceived on November 1, your edd would be about July 25, and today you'd be 5 weeks and 3 days.

All that being said, ime, most OBs do not like to base the EDD on conception date. They like to base them on LMP and ultrasound dating. But, if you are seeing a midwife, she's more likely to use your conception date.

You do NOT look fat, mama! And please don't think pasta is bad, you NEED carbs(healthy ones). Even though your baby is pretty small still, your body is doing so much work already. You need at least 2500 calories a day and you won't get that just eating salads.

Don't be down on yourself. You look great!!

You do NOT. I think that everyone looks great and there are many of us that are much larger than you, and even envious of your cute bellies popping out. I think we should all try to focus on how beautiful our bellies can and will be instead of all this self-deprecating stuff, don't you? :

Thank you both....I have been incredibly down lately. I'm uncomfortable in everything I put on and I cry over everything. I honestly cried while watching the parade this morning! Just trying to keep it all together, I'm not used to being so emotional and uncomfortable all the time.

Sorry for being Debbie Downer earlier and thanks again for the nice comments! I love our DDC. Have a great Thanksgiving ladies

ooh, I love all the baby belly pics! Thanks for sharing, everyone. Here's me at 4 weeks.

Honeybunny, don't feel 'fat'. (Cuz' you don't look fat!) Blame it on the bloat! About 2 days after I missed my period, my belly started bloating, and although my scale hasn't changed at all, my belly is much fuller. I am so happy to have a 'belly full o' baby' though, so I don't mind. My friend told me to go out and buy the Bella Band, which as far as I can tell is a tube of t-shirty material that you wear under other shirts, it covers up your waistline and so you can unbutton your pants when you're in that lovely time inbetween regular clothes and maternity clothes. Also extends your wardrobe, at least in the beginning, for shirts, and she also said it helps keep those saggy maternity pants up. I heard it will make you a waffle in the morning and scrub your toilet out, too!

I have never lost the baby belly I got after my 4th.
I did lose over 40lbs this year, so my tummy did look a lot smaller.
Right now though, I look REALLY bloated.
I won't post pics because I look more pregnant due to my fat than most of you will look at 6 months

Honneybunny: if my tummy looks like yours at 6 weeks, AFTER I have a tummy tuck in a few years, I will be the happiest woman alive!
post #37 of 143
Oh my gosh honeybunny, you look adorable, as do all the cute preggos!

I'm not taking pictures yet because of previous m/cs - I don't want to jinx myself. But I will in a few weeks and post. I'm excited to see the changes!

post #40 of 143
After a nice dinner of cheese coneys, which are just sitting in my tummy giving me awful heartburn (ie I feel pretty bloated right now), I come across this post and find *ADORABLE* pictures of some TINY tummies! You ladies look GREAT, and I'm now terrified to post any prego pics of my not-so-slim tummy anywhere. It's not that I'm ashamed of my tummy- I'm quite proud of the dozens of stretch marks I earned w/ ds, just not so proud of the 20 lbs I have yet to lose before I'm at my pre-baby weight (and that's not my ideal weight either!).

Well, I guess those pounds will have to wait...it may not be pretty, but in that tummy o'mine there's a a little something amazing happening. I'll post pics eventually, but don't say I didn't warn ya!
