Is it too early for belly photos?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I love looking at belly photos, so I'm wondering if anyone else has a little bump or not... even if it's mostly gas I still like peeking.

Here's mine, taken today @ 9.5 weeks:

And a comparison over the last few weeks:

gorgeous belly already! definitely not too early if you've got a nice little bump like that. i feel silly taking pictures of my 5 week bloat, but can't wait to have a real belly to photograph soon.

If i don't suck in my stomach, i look pretty pregnant but that is just due to the loose skin from having two other kids already. I'm only 2lbs above the weight i started my other two pregnancies at right now.

I might get brave and take a picture next week sometime i'll be 7wks on sunday.

For me, yes, it's too early and I say that as someone who is a devoted belly photographer. In the first trimester my baby will be very small so I know any distention I have in my abdomen is not the baby but a pregnancy symptom. While I'm comfortable with my mama belly I'm not likely to photograph it and pass my bloating or fat off as "baby" any more than I'll photograph my nausea, pimples, exhaustion or other pregnancy symptoms. I almost never begin before 15w. That's just me!

Wow, teapot! You're really showing. Doesn't look like bloat to me.

At 6 weeks, i still look like your first picture, haha.

Wow! You're really showing already!

I'll be 8 weeks on Monday and my tummy actually looks smoother and flatter than it did before. The bloat I had for the first few weeks is clearing up and I definitely do not look pregnant. I still *feel* pregnant, still have symptoms, so I'm not too worried... but I don't have much to take a picture of yet, though next week when my husband gets back in town, I'll probably have him take a picture just so we have pics for comparison purposes later.

I'm kinda jealous. When I'm feeling woozy and I don't give up my seat on the bus, no one knows it's because I'm pregnant so I feel like everyone thinks I'm just a jerk. *blush*

Wow, cute pretty belly! I don't have anything yet, though I'm a little bloated. I have been taking belly pics since 6 weeks though, just for fun and to have a record. I can't upload right now, maybe next week.

So cute! I think you definitely have a bump...not bloat! I only have a bump at night, which I think is bloat. Well, I take that back...I have a bump all of the time, but that is mostly 'leftovers' from my first two kids.

k, well, I am fat so no, I don't look anymore pregnant than i did before I concieved. I put weight on all in my tummy, so small children and rude adults already ask me when I am expecting.

I'll be brave... i just looked through photos and saw my first belly pic with my son was at 5wk6days but the next wasnt til 10wks lol. I never sucked in my stomache in the first belly picture with him so saw no point is starting to do it now so i'm not sucking in my stomache. This morning according to my home scale i'm 124lbs * right about where i started my pregnancies with my other two kids* though on 10/20 a drs office scale had me at 126.6 lbs.

Nice bellies, mamas!!!! I'm chubby, too, so I'm counting on not really showing for a long, long time. For some reason I feel like flying under the radar with this preg - I guess there's a part of me that fears flack from all my friends/relatives whose chins will drop when we announce it.

Wow! For those having their 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc baby, your belly really pops pretty early! How exciting!

I get bloated sometimes and I think my belly looks different, but no real change phyiscally.

Wow - these are amazing! I didn't show for a REALLY long time with my first and now I am heavy so I don't expect there will be much to see but I love these!
