Anyone taking belly pics yet? - Page 10
You all make me feel so much better about how big I am this time around. It's kind of scary because at 22 weeks I'm about the same size as I was on my due date with my last three. I'm a little intimidated by how big I'm going to be by my due date. I'll have to take a picture so I can join in!
Everyone is really starting to look pregnant! And I think most of us need to do some cleaning :-P lol
Mamainthedesert your hair is GORGEOUS! Nice belly too :-D
I have taken a pic every week but there hasn't really been a change since 16wks. My belly has gotten a little higher, harder and maybe wider and baby is definitely way stronger but things aren't looking any different.
It might look normal for most people, but not for me. Like I said, that was me at my due date with my last pregnancies. I've also gained about 30lbs this pregnancy already. I guess it's really just a matter of perspective. It's hard to look back at pictures of my previous pregnancies knowing that most people didn't even really know I was pregnant by this far along! They just thought I'd packed on a few pounds. It does help a little to see that in comparison to other bellies I'm not really kind of average. I think I may just have to hide the pictures I have around the house that show me in earlier pregnancies. I might be able to feel better about it then.
I am feeling gigantic compared to my last pregnancy as well, but I am trying to remind myself not to think about it too much. I am especially frustrated because my nice maternity jeans that lasted me the whole pregnancy last time are already feeling tight on my hips. I am telling myself that part of it is because this time it's a different gender! Plus last time I had been going to pilates and yoga regularly so I had a hard time getting those core muscles to relax....lots of round ligament pain. None this time, since my core was pretty "lax." :) I have been exercising almost every day and not eating too much more than normal, so I know that it's just what baby needs. But I totally feel your pain on knowing how different it was last time!
Taken over the weekend at 24 weeks 6 days. My OB told me that I would most likely start having "growing pains." Not sure why she told me that, but I still feel great. My niece was born tonight and I can't wait for our babies to meet this summer. They live across the country and will hopefully come to visit as our extended family all live near us.
Everyone looks great! Love to see all the different ways babies change the belly!
