I lost a ton of weight quickly with ds, continued to lose until I weaned him, that was the thinnest I had ever been. DD I lost weight very slow and not all of it. I'm wondering if ds was just better at getting to the hind milk.

 


My son was. My DD didn't really care at all about nursing...she wanted to eat and be done. My son, would spend HOURS on the boob if I'd let him. He loved it...he WORKED ON the boobs! I really think he got at a lot more hind milk, his technique was crazy. Very different from DD.

I just started a fun project with a local photographer!! We're doing an online pregnancy photo journal - SO EXCITED! Here's my first picture:

I can't count the number of people that have said "are you sure you're not having twins?!" We are pretty sure we aren't having twins (haven't had an ultrasound.) If there's one thing I've learned working with pregnant women it's that EVERY WOMAN'S BODY IS DIFFERENT! We all hold our babies differently.

 

Happy gestating ladies!

WOW PC! That's, first of all, a freaking SWEET picture! And secondly...a VERY nice bump for a first time mama at 14 weeks! What a beauty!

Thank you! Some days I think I must just be really bloated or something the way everyone reacts to my belly! lol I have no idea why it's so big at 14 weeks but I'm grateful to have a bump :-)

PrenatalCoach, I too agree that picture is just gorgeous!!! And I do agree that every pregnancy and birth are different, very true.  I might wonder if it were twins though or that maybe your further along? if possible?  I also am pretty sure I looked like that with one or more of my babies.  You do look just beautiful though!!!

Gorgeous photo!!!!  I'm also 14 weeks and have the same size bump!  No twins that we know of, heard only one heartbeat, no ultrasound either.  I've continued exercising and have gained only 2lbs.  But my bump is big!  I love it also!

And I wish everyone would understand that every woman and pregnancy is different.  Quit comparing me to her, and her and her....lol

I love it!!! Your photos are beautiful and so is your bump!

How pretty!  I need to get my DH to take a belly pic.  I'm 16 weeks and still no bump to speak of (though things are growing normally!).  It's funny because I'm short (5'1") so I kind of assumed that I'd show really early since there isn't a great place for the baby to hide.

Here's my latest 13w5d and I'm loving that this is baby #7 and I don't look like I'm carrying triplets LOL

This is me at 13 weeks 1 day. I have no idea why the picture is on its side as it is rotated correctly on my computer. I can't seem to get it right. Very annoying! When I see myself in the mirror I never feel as big as I look in photos. I do enjoy the belly though, so I'm happy to have a bump. :)

KSD, you look totally adorable!!!  I'm so opposite you though, I don't want the bump yet LOL I can wait a bit longer.  :o)

I am surprised yours is so small though, Tenk, since this is #7 for you. I don't love feeling big, but I think baby bumps are cute and really one of the only thing I enjoy about being pregnant... so I'll take it! I much prefer a defined pregnant belly to just feeling chunky also. :)

I look about the same as you, Prenatal Coach, and I'm 14 1/2 weeks smile.gif Beautiful pictures, mamas! I think every imaginable belly is "normal"!

ME TOO!!!  I hate the, I just look chubby stage of pregnancy.  DH even commented yesterday (he was looking over my shoulder while I was looking at all the photos on here) that he wondered why I was so much smaller than I seemed I "should be".  I don't know, I mean I had an ultrasound on Monday and baby looked great.  I'm not hungry very often and I can almost NEVER drink water because it makes me throw up no matter what even if I'm fine otherwise :(   I wondered if maybe not drinking water at all is effecting me more than I think???

 

You do look totally beautiful though!!! 

 

I don't know, I'm struggling here, I don't want my butt and hips to be big, and I weigh myself every single day, more than once a day and I weighed like 132 yesterday morning and I'm kind of scared about gaining too much like I have in the past.  GAH, I need to get off this soap box here.  My BFF even ask me if I was ok ... boo

14 weeks tomorrow.  not a  big change from my 10 week photo but i think a lot of that was probably bloating since i tend to look bigger at night.  this was was taken earlier in the day

Ahhh I LOVE all your bellies! So exciting!

post #99 of 309

Okay, here I am at 13 weeks today. This is after christmas eve dinner, so take it with a grain of salt. I didn't overdo it though - being vegetarian helps when you go to a meat eater friend's dinner!

Oh, this is also after I posted some pics of me and my son making cookies on my blog, and my mom ( the next time I talked to her) asked me why I was so fat already. Yeah, she used the F word! What the hell? So then, I told DH, I said, My mom said I'm fat already. And, yeah, I think we can all agree that the correct husband answer is some variation of "you are so beautiful" OR "I love you just the way you are" OR "Your belly is lovely because you are growing our child" OR any number of derivatives of "no honey your butt does not look big." So what does he say? He looks me in the eye and says, "Well, you have been eating everything in sight."

 

Thanks honey. Yup, cried for about two hours that day.

Aww, mama, that makes me really upset for you greensad.gif You are definitely not the F word! People can be so insensitive when we need sensitivity the most. hug.gif
