This is a continuation of our old belly photo thread from our DDC.  The link to the previous thread is below.  Please post your new photos here.

post #2 of 266

I like the idea of having one thread to post all the belly photos.  With my last pregnancy I took a picture almost every week  (CLICK HERE TO SEE MY LAST PICS).  While I'm not sure that I will take a picture every week this time, I'm going to try to keep up with it as much as possible. 

 

Feel free to post your belly pics and we can all share our growing bellies!

 

6w4d - My stomach started out flat, so I'm feeling HUGE already!

My turn!!! I'm 7w5d. Pre-baby weight: 145. Current: 155. =( I give partial blame to the fact that I quit smoking when I found out I was pregnant and quitting smoking always = Weight gain.

 

Notice my little pudge? LOL

 

I've also gone up a cup size in my bra. 36D to a 38DD. =( DH loves it. I say, "OW!!!". I finally bought a bra that fits last night and it's wonderful.

 

And yes, I know I'm totally tatted up. I hope, hope, hope they don't get too destroyed with the pregnancy. LOL My mama doesn't have any stretch marks, so let's hope I'm just as lucky. *Crosses fingers*

TTCChloeOrConner~ Your tattoos will get big but go back to normal after baby. I have one tattoo on my stomach that has gone through two pregnancies, where i was all baby.

 

 

I'm going to wait til I'm  11wks after my first visit to take a picture. I have some fluff from previous babies even though I'm starting at roughly the same weight, if i don't suck my stomach in i look hugely pregnant.

I never really tracked week to week but I plan on doing it this time. Maybe every two weeks. Here is me at 36 weeks with my son in 2006.

FWIW, I'm heavily tattooed and mine didn't change during or after pregnancy (not even my tummy tattoos)

5w4d.  My belly is actually sticking out under my belly button - had to switch to looser pants as my tight jeans cut in too much.  I think I'm going to show early this time around!

GenomicsGirl- you look AWESOME!

 

I'm still irked. I too was still losing. I was 10 lb under my prepregnancy weight, fitting into size 1 jeans with no muffin top and frickin' PROUD of it.. Thennnnn.. BFP. LOL

 

Let's hope I A) Don't gain 50 pounds with this one like I did with my DD

and B) It doesn't take me 12+ months to take it off again

 

I've actually lost 3 pounds in this pregnancy so far- last time by 8 weeks, I'd gained 7. hahah

I feel HUGE compared to all of you! This is my second and I'm pretty sure my ab muscles never came back together...not sure exactly where my fundus is b/c my c-section scar makes it hard to tell, but I think it's about even with it. I've actually even lost 5 lbs! :/

Adorable belly!
 

I've felt dorkish taking pictures this early on, but I'm 8wks 1day now, and it's probably okay  :) I'll take on tomorrow morning and post.

 

I have yet to tell the majority of my family as well, some may not be so supportive .. have to tell them before or at Easter, since I'll be 11 weeks and most certaintly showing .. I went to a family party over the weekend and wore a loose-fitting dress, but my tumm was definitely rounded and you could see I'd gained a little weight, so I'm sure people were wondering and tongues were possibly waggin'...

Ok, here's my questionable bump. I'm certainly not showing, but the area between my hips is usually flat. My fundus is already above my pubic bone. (Having an u/s to check for twins/double check dates on Friday, because everything is NOT adding up)

 

Don't mind my pyjamas. LOL

Look at all you skinny minis... lol :) I see the teeny bump you're talking about!

 

What else is making you think twins? I'm thinking twins myself because I had two follicles that likely ovulated, and my hCG numbers went up twice what they needed to to double, and I'm a big girl but I can already feel my uterus, too (and it's my first pregnancy). It's way down there, but hard!

6 weeks today : ) I'm really excited to add a picture, we didn't take any progression pictures last go around-  however it was super hard to get this one because 2yo DS sees a belly and goes into tickle mode :P  I don't think much of it is baby as I am feeling quite bloated.

Oh I'm with you on this, for sure!  Once I have a big enough baby in there that it makes the flab leftover from the 4 year old less apparent I will be posting pictures.  In the meantime, all you beautiful mamas rock on with your confident selves!

You look great, I doubt that you're at bloated at you think.  ;)  Most people dream of looking that great again at 9w pp!  While I do lose all the weight I gain (usually 50lbs!!!), it takes me 6 months to want to show off my belly again.

I'm with all three of you ladies! I was big before I got pregnant, and while I've got a little bit of a baby belly, it just looks like normal fat has been added to my stomach and waistline! I'm 10 weeks now, so maybe in a couple of weeks I'll post some pics of my belly when you KNOW I've got a baby in there and not just eating a few too many cookies! biglaugh.gif

Wow.  I'm so jealous of the bumps all you ladies have.  I'm at 11 weeks, and nothing yet!  I'm not heavy, I'm not twiggy, just average, but nothing is showing yet.  I should be happy because I'd like to wait a little longer to tell work, but I'm still jealous of all of you.  You all look so beautiful!

I'm sure we'll be looking back at these posts months from now and kicking ourselves.  Still.  I don't want to look bloated.  I want an adorable bump!

I'm definitely in the not-showing-yet camp. So much so that on Tuesday of this week a med student at my appt (at 9 weeks) said he was going to take my blood pressure and measure me and I said "measuring what? Trust me there's nothing here to measure". So he didn't smile.gif

Here is my 10 week picture.  I'm glad to see that so many other mama's are showing already.  I felt like I was the only one to show early in my last DDC.  :)  I think this is the last week that I'll be able to fit into this swimsuit, I'll have to think of something else for the rest of my pictures.

I have the opposite problem from Ashley-- I keep feeling like there isn't enough of a difference! But I'm also in the unique position of being a bigger girl who, in addition, carries all my weight in my belly, so I look pretty pregnant to start with. Here are my two belly shots (and keep in mind that the first is essentially a before shot, I was just a touch bloated but that's basically what I look like anyways):

 

first two shots.jpg

 

You can ignore my dorkiness. Or not. lol.

 

I think I definitely look a bit more "inflated" now than I did then, and it's hard to see exactly how much change there's been because I had so much there to start with, but... I look bigger, right? I mean, I've got two in there. I better. lol.

Yup, I'm pretty sure that I can see a difference.  :)   This thread is making me feel better too.  In my last DDC I swear that I was the only one that was showing in the first trimester.  Now I feel a lot more normal for needing maternity jeans by week 10!

I figured your siggy needed updating. lol I'm 11 weeks 2days and feeling alot better lately. Not so sick unless I need to eat, but still really tired. With my DD, I had already gained 10 lbs, so I was bigger last time around, and this time, I've only gained 3 lbs thus far. I'm really glad I'm gaining more slowly this time. I gained 70 lbs last time around and DONT want to do that again. haha

I'll post as a rare 'fluffy' mama - there are so many skinny minies here!! I'm about 50 pounds overweight, but I haven't gained anything since becoming pregnant - in fact in total I've lost almost ten pounds.

 

Here's my 9 week shot, which is pretty much a 'before' because I hadn't changed at all - I had the little "pooch" before being pregnant, too redface.gif

Thanks for posting that Luna.  I'm about 40 lbs overweight, so was feeling the "you're all so skinny" bit too.  I can see a bump unclothed, in the mirror, and things are definitely harder there, but I'm hoping to pop out a bit more soon.  Going to see family in about 5 weeks and they're going to be all hysterical and goofy.  Would be nice to have something to show for all of my hard work. :D

Count me in to the fluffy category!  I have not posted any pictures of my bump because, while is it there for sure, it is also pushing out the layer of fat I had before :)  I look rediculously pregnant...but then, this is also my 3rd.

Love the pics, Luna! And I have to say, I have the Target elephant underwear, too. Their my favorites.

 

I'm not sure if I count as fluffy yet (don't want to be one of those annoying women who says they're chubby when they're tiny!!), but I'm definitely not skinny. My pre-pregnancy weight was one pound from overweight- apparently BMI is *that* strict. I have taken exactly 0 pictures of my exposed belly. I'm with Ash- baby is pushing out my belly fat. I look really pregnant, but it is my third and part of it is my cushy tummy. :)

Heh.  Not yet for me.  I used to be a really big girl (about 300 lbs), so that whole belly area is pretty gnarly, even when I've been thin.  I've had all sort of trouble with an ankle injury and PCOS.  I dropped about 15 pounds, then found out I was PG.  Lost about 5 more, but I think 3-4 are back again now that I'm able to eat more and have stopped taking metformin. I'm really hoping to keep the weight gain to like 15-20 lbs. but the medicine was making a big difference it seems.  So, yeah...long story, but no belly pics for me just yet. :)

If you showed someone just the last one they'd think I was super pregnant, but all three together and you can see it's just been small changes along the way because I started out bigger. I expect to see a lot more change in the next few weeks because the babies will be growing so much.

If you showed someone just the last one they'd think I was super pregnant, but all three together and you can see it's just been small changes along the way because I started out bigger. I expect to see a lot more change in the next few weeks because the babies will be growing so much.

Still haven't gotten any preggo comments in public, though I think I'm certainly looking it! My husband theorizes that it's my constant "f off face" while in public. haha

Sarah-- I'm surprised you haven't gotten comments, unless people are just polite in your neck of the woods. I think it's less a matter of you looking pg (which you clearly do) and more someone having the opportunity to say something. As for me, I don't think I look so obviously pregnant yet that strangers would take that risk, since I'm clearly bigger anyways-- no one wants to make the wrong guess jn a game of "pregnant or fat," lol!

Also, HOW DID YOU FIND OUT GENDER SO EARLY??? My doctor's office won't let me do the fetal scan until at least 18 weeks (I'll be there at exactly 18w0d, soonest appt I could get).

Everyone looks so beautiful! I love the variety of sizes and shapes of baby bumps!

I went to a private place (kind of a funny story, but I wound up with two free ultrasound by very competitive private places) and they were able to tell. One place I talked to said that they could tell as early as 13 weeks and that they've never been wrong in 25 years!

Becky, mine does too. I'm heavy to start with, so naked I still look sort of "just fat." The maternity pants help to smooth things out so it looks rounder, and I think I look definitely pregnant when dressed. It's good enough for me :) What I'm NOT happy about are the stretch marks I'm already seeing! I bought some (expensive) cream; we'll see if it works...

Hahahah I agree too! 

 

And Miriam -gloomy.gif stretch marks suck. i hope your creme works... i had them on my sides to begin with from when i put on a little weight, but thankfully they haven't gotten worse with the baby weight. is this something that being proactive about could help?

Stretch marks are Mom-trophies.  Lol.  Embrace them.  Trust me when I say this- creams and lotions will not save you, spare your money.  When I had my first I used about 5 different VERY expensive creams and did regular skin therapy at a local salon because I was convinced it would save me...it did not.  To say the least.  I believe its actually proven that its genetic predisposition that will cause stretch marks.

On stretch marks- I was diligent about moisturizing the skin on my tummy and thighs with both girls. With the second, I used Vitamin E. I've been pretty obsessive about moisturizing my entire body since I was about 16, though. I got barely any stretch marks with either. However, I completely believe it is just a coincidence. I'm with Ash- it's genetic. Of course, that doesn't stop me from using Palmer's Tummy Butter this time around!

 

Oddly enough, it wasn't the two pregnancies that gave me stretch marks. It was the 20 or so pounds I put on in the last 2 years. Odd how gaining 50 lbs in 9 months didn't do it, but that did! I think I'll end up with many more this time around as my skin already seems to be stretched.

 

Overall, though, I try not to care. My hips and thighs are not a pretty sight, so I just don't look close up! In my mind, I still look good, and that's enough for me. ;)

Well, at least my $35 lotion smells nice and lemongrass-y :(

 

I actually thought I might get stretch marks easily-- I have a bunch on my boobs (I was a B by 12 and a DD by 14, go figure) and I have a few from gaining weight in my last year of grad school. I'm just disappointed to have some lines going down either side of my belly button already at just 16 weeks. I was overweight to start with, so I'm kinda kicking myself for not losing weight first and then using my already stretched-out belly to buy some time, lol, but oh well. I wasn't going to wear any bikinis anytime soon, or ever...

I 4th or 5th the dressing room comment!

 

And Becky and Miriam, I'm with you on the pregnant with clothes thing. I think what makes me look "just fat" without a shirt is the caved in beer gut belly button thing. If that makes any sense! I think once my uterus moves up past my belly button, it will look much better. :)

I agree that stretch marks appear to be genetic.  Creams and hydration can help make the skin more elastic and therefore a little more resilient to sudden weight gain, but if it's in your genes some are going to happen at some point anyway.

Even if you get tons of stretch marks, you come to peace with them....no need to obsess or worry.  I was 103 lbs (and 5'8")before my first and thought stretch marks would be the end of the world. They are not, for sure.

 

I find that my bump has pushed out my layer of fat (which is all at the bottom of my belly, so I jiggle on top of my baby belly.  Which is just SO sexy, as you can imagine.  those pants that go below the belly?  Yeah...they mostly just push that fat roll UP and really tight, and look pretty disgusting.  Im going to need to be much rounder before I pull those off!

I acutally didn't get much more stretch marks last pregnancy, because I used olive oil on my tummy and breasts. It has alot better properties for increasing elastin in the skin. :) It looks like I'll have to whip it out soon this time too, cuz I'm getting more marks on my breasts. bag.gif

YES!!!!! It's the sunken in belly button and the skin that didn't snap back from baby number 2. I HAVE noticed my belly button is more shallow though, so it looks like it'll pop out soon. I love my maternity pants right now, cuz the ones I have, the elastic stretches up almost to my breasts and makes my tummy look more round instead of flabby. lol

It is weird. lol "wow I didn't realize how deep my belly button was before!" blah! I'm excited and happy about getting further along, I just want to be fit. I was well on my way to that when I BECAME pregnant. I lost 15 lbs with running and weight training and as soon as I hit 15lbs lost I was preggo. lol

About stretch marks-

 

I read somewhere that the more active you stay during pregnancy, the less the stretch marks are. Being active helps slow down your skin stretching, because you're staying "limber" so your skin/body isn't tightening up then tearing when stretched out.

How active is one supposed to stay?  I walked about 2 miles a day and worked full time when I was pregnant with #1 and I still got them.  :)

Stretch marks are largely genetic. You either either predisposed to get them or not.

When do most women typically START getting them? I haven't developed any new ones (at 20w6d w/ baby #1) - even on my boobs which have grown three full cup sizes since conception... And my belly is now much farther out than my boobs and I don't have any visible stretch marks yet, but my sister has them pretty bad from her first baby....

I think it depends, but I mostly hear women say they got them at the end when things are really stretching quickly.

I had one or two prior to birth, and then I had a bunch of them crop up around my navel after the baby was born. They weren't purple or red, just shiny and white from the get-go. I can't see them now.

 

I have one from this pregnancy that has come out over an old scar, you can see it in this pic:

Mine started at 7mo (30 weeks) and continued gradually until the end.  I only got stretch marks in my first pregnancy, so hopefully I won't get any new ones this time either.  My friends started somewhere around then as well, but didn't get awful until the last 2-3 weeks (her poor belly is wrecked).  I have another friend that didn't get any until the last 2 days of pregnancy.  Each person is so different..

 

Also, just cause you get stretch marks doesn't mean that your stomach won't go back.  I have many around my hips and lower belly and my tummy has always looked pretty good within a year pp.  You can see my belly photos from pregnancy #2 in the first post of this thread (there's a link).

Okay, ladies... I'm officially in trouble. Check out my last photo:

 

first four shots.jpg

 

Ignore the wet, unbrushed hair and look at how HUGE I AM. AT ALMOST SEVENTEEN WEEKS. Oh boy!

 

I love what my body is doing right now and I'm so, so thrilled to be pregnant, especially with TWINS after almost 2 1/2 years of trying and failing... but I'm definitely going through a tough time with accepting my body right now. It's hard to be fat and pregnant and feel pretty. I love how my belly looks in the 14w4d photo (and that's still my favorite "pregnancy top" to wear) because the band from my maternity jeans make my belly nice and smooth and round. Naked? It's got this saggy, round-on-top-flabby-on-the-bottom thing going on, with stretch marks to boot, and I just feel ugly and gross. I'll get over it, and anyways my babies are so, SO worth it, but it's something I need to work through.

 

Hope everyone else is well! I want to see more photos up in here! :D

nod.gif  I know exactly what your talking about.  Its the reason I cant wear those cute little under-the-belly jeans until about 6 months.

 

I promise, all that extra will round out with your belly...and the sagging flabbiness will be gone.

Miriam- I, too am having a terrible time accepting my changing body. I just keep getting bigger and bigger, and while I should be accepting and LOVING the change, I hate it. I hate my pants not fitting. I hate running out of breath so easily. I hate feeling like a cow because I'm bigger than I've ever been. I love that I'm pregnant. I love that the little guy (Or girl) is thriving/growing/doing as it should, but I wish there were a way to go about it without having to make myself huge in the process. I've never been one to watch/care about my body or weight, but now... I'm just so insecure. I've NEVER been insecure. I get mad if I even think my husband is looking at another girl, because I feel like I'm not competition for anyone anymore. I know it's all in my head, but... It just sucks. I can't wait to have the baby, so I can go back to how I used to be... Or as close to it as possible.

 

Sorry for my rant. Just know you aren't alone. I just need to get past the stage where I could be fat... Or I could be pregnant. No one will ask because it could go either way. I need to look pregnant. Once I have an OBVIOUSLY pregnant belly, I know it'll be better.

Aww, hon! Pregnancy isn't exactly a sexy or pretty thing for alot of men anyways. Ray saw my full panel maternity pant the other day, and he was like "what the hell is THAT?!" I had to laugh, but it was kind of a jab at me being preggo. We have to get bigger. We have to wear larger clothes, and some of them looking goofy, like my full panel pants. lol Don't feel bad about your body. This is only temporary! It's almost halfway over. HUGS!  hug.gif Also, I try to avoid mirrors at all costs until I'm dressed. lol Just so I don't cry. I remember with my first, at 8 months I felt so huge and I saw myself in the mirror naked and just cried and cried. Stupid hormones. lol

 

PS  You have a beautiful twin bump! Just think if it'd taken THREE years to get preggo. You might have gotten a triple win. lol

You are SOO not alone with feeling insecure. I get mad too. I mean, I wasn't necessarily "comptetition for looks" material, but I looked okay. And now, I have to wear roomy clothes that either makes me look fat or HUGE pregnant. I drove myself crazy when I was pregnant with my 2nd. My ex worked with all these young and pretty waitresses and there I was, up 50 lbs, swollen feet, fat cheeks and sweating everywhere cuz I was 7 months pregnant in sweltering heat. I even had a dream that he was doing this blonde bimbo in the bathroom and when he saw me he smiled and just kept going. Crazy stuff.

Pregnant women are totally sexy!!!   While my dh makes fun of my maternity panties, etc. he tells me he love, love, loves my pregnant body.  There are curves, bigger breasts, larger and darker areolas, a softer and more feminine quality, more to hold onto...  I do recall with my first pregnancy that dh was a bit hesitant to "do stuff" but the second and third times around he's all about it whenever he can convince my sick and tired self.  lol.gif  

 

So ladies, I bet your dh/dp's would be all into your pregnant bodies, which are quite voluptuous, as long as you feel good about it.  Exude that confidence and watch what happens!   Oh, and dim lights and candles can help with the confidence (what stretch marks?) and add to the sexiness.  winky.gif

I totally, totally agree! :) DP picks on me and calls me "bacon" and the baby "bacon bits", but he is totally into the belly and thinks it's sexy knowing that something we made is inside of me growing and thriving. He makes me feel so comfortable with it and tells me how much he loves my body and how wonderful seeing the baby is. :)He also loves the changes to the breasts - but what man wouldn't? I feel like having the support of your DP / DH is so vital - it makes you so much more confident with yourself. :)

So many new beautiful bellies! I love how we're all different shapes, and we're all starting to enter the "definitely looking pregnant" stage. Actually, I'm on the earlier end of things (due at the tail end of November) and a bunch of people here are due closer to the beginning of November, so some people in this group are officially 20 weeks-- as a DDC, we're just about halfway there! How crazy is that? It's funny, how you spend the whole beginning of pregnancy tired and/or otherwise feeling terrible but not looking or necessarily "feeling" pregnant, and then all of a sudden, boom! a bump appears and you're 20 weeks before you know it. Crazy.

That sounds like a really powerful experience!

With my first  it took a long time to pop out... not until well into the third tri.  With my second it was out maybe halfway through and never fully went back in.  So this time around it stuck out almost immediately.

My bellybutton never popped last time. I had a really deep bellybutton though, it just ended up almost flattening out. It never really got back to the way it was and I'm expecting it to pop this time. When I'm sitting down, it almost pops out and if I press my hands on my belly it does pop.

I'm 18 weeks tomorrow (gender ultrasound at 10:30am!!!) and mine's still pretty deep, but a bit less so than it was pre-pregnancy. I had a decent amount of belly fat to start, so I think it'll take more time to pop-- but since I'm having two, I don't doubt that it will!

Oh! My siser had a bellybutton ring for 10 years and when she was 6 months took hers out and now the piercing is a stretched hole. lol It looks like a gauged ear piercing that is trying to shrink back. I'm SO glad I didn't pierce my navel. lol By the way, I can't WAIT to camp this summer!

Here is my belly a little after 18 weeks.. I usually don't show until around 24 plus but I think eight months between pregnancies has made a huge difference.

Thanks Amanda!  This is my "morning tummy" but my "evening tummy" is much larger!  lol.gif  I take the pics in the morning to keep as consistent as possible and so there is more light.  I just added a progression from 12-18 weeks.  I can really see a difference between 16 and 18 weeks!  I bet by 20 I'll have really popped.  I think back to my first pregnancy and recall that no one could tell I was pregnant at all when I went in for my 20 week sono.  I was still wearing regular clothes.   So much for my abs...

I don't think you have to be worrying about your abs.  ;)  My stomach was totally flat before I got pregnant, but the moment I poas it's like everything releases and I have a round little belly.  It doesn't help that I gain a ton of weight right off the bat!  Luckily my body has always gone back pp, hopefully it'll recover this time too! 

 

I really need to take a new pic, I've totally slacked off with this pregnancy.

That was just with my sister. I think every person with a piercing is different, but my sister still can't wear hers. lol

I got my very first stretch mark where my naval piercing was.  I was 18 and SO horrified by it.  I was convinced that I would just pop right back down to my size 3's and have no flab, stretch marks, or weight gain and just put the ring right back in...I am VERY genetically prone to stretch marks, though, my mom got them bad, and I even had them as a teenager when my breast and legs grew.

I know!! In the evening I feel like a whale, but in the morning I'm like "OK, I'm not THAT big yet."  BTW, Jaimee, you look UNBELIEVABLE.  I couldn't wear my regular clothes by 12 or 13 weeks (I also got really, really bloated in the beginning) and this is my first child!  The fact that you look like that -- AND it's not your first pregnancy -- well, I'm loathe to admit just how jealous I am of you.  I dream of wearing button and zip-fly jeans/shorts.  I've been wearing full-panel maternity wear for the last 2 months!

Thanks Katie!  That's really sweet.   love.gif   If it makes you feel any better I have since retired the shorts in my 16 week pic.  The other shorts are extremely low riding so they sit below the bump.  Otherwise I mostly wear stretchy top skirts.

8 lbs in 2 weeks. They say the honeymoon is the 2nd trimester well not yet for me..round ligament pain, backaches, braxton hicks, restless legs, small stomach.....I think some of these symptoms will subside when my body adjusts to the huge growth spurt (I hope!)

Everyone looks so pregnant. Time did fly by for the first half of pregnancy..:)

HAH! Missing head shots are abundant here! Half of mine I cut off because I take them right when I wake up, or right before I go to bed.

See what we did there with the arrow?  hehe :)

This is my second pregnancy, so I felt huge since I have been bigger since the beginning (I seriously knew I was pregnant just because I had a paunch around my belly at 4 weeks!)  But looking at everyone's photos makes me feel like I'm on track.  Whew.  I just feel like I've been this big for so long- any other multip mamas feel that way?

You're so skinny still, MsVyky!  Such a cute belly.  I swear, this baby decided to pack all his luggage in my butt and thighs.  Oh well!  Breastfeeding calories, right there!

jbk21.... I'm not seeing anything stored in your butt and thighs!  You look great!  And I love the pic, too... out of curiosity, what kind of camera do you have?

Thanks, Jaimee!  I'm just bigger in that area than I was last pregnancy, or ever, really.  Even my husband says so (when I beg him to be honest).  I know I am well within the "normal" range for weight gain but it's hard on my self-esteem to gain weight... I know it shouldn't be, but it's tough.  

We use a Canon Rebel xs and LOVE it.  That particular lens was a 50mm fixed lens, which is awesome and I highly recommend it (it's an amazing quality lens for CHEAP- best deal on a high-quality lens that you can find.)  We also have the kit lens and a 75-300mm lens.

I have a Canon Rebel as well... the EOS T1i.  I still mostly use the kit lens and just got a telephoto.  I could tell you had a nice camera b/c of the clarity and depth of focus. photosmile2.gif

Thanks!  We love it and are still getting used to it.  We shoot in auto most of the time, we really need to take a class or something.... :-)

I like to avoid the flash by shooting in P and adjusting the ISO or sports mode (when photographing the kids).

adjusting the ISO- no idea what I'm doing there.  I understand the basic concept but haven't messed around with it.  We have a full auto with no flash option, thankfully.  I hate flash!

We all look so.. pregnant! yikes.gif After over two years of infertility, it still hits me so hard (in a good way) when I see myself, and other women due around when I'm due, looking so obvious and round now. Crazy!

 

Here's me yesterday at 24w6d (25w today):

Not super flattering, I have "dried wavy on its own" hair and a bathing suit top (sort of) under a skirt, haha, but I look very clearly pregnant in this sort of outfit, don't I? winky.gif

Now THESE pics make me feel SO much better about the "your huge" comments Ive been getting- because I'm just as pregnant as everybody else- no bigger, definitely not smaller, though...

Look how huge I got in 4 weeks! I saw my 22 week picture and then my 26 week right next to it on my computer and I definitely popped out more in the last 4 weeks. lol Even 24 weeks to 26 weeks there's a huge difference.

You DO look a lot bigger in that last photo, wow! And you did it without stretch marks, amazing.

HAHA Thanks. I don't have them YET! I have faded ones, but this crappy camera doesn't pick them up. I know that the stretch marks will be here full force in about 6 weeks.
