I took one this week. I will try to take one per month. Who knows how long it will take to attach said picture in this thread though

I'm obsessed with belly shots. I'm trying to figure out a way to document the bump. This is my favorite so far...so simple: http://simplybloomphotography.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/b16.jpg
This was also cute...http://www.howtobeadad.com/2011/7632/0-baby-sixty-seconds... though I'm not so technically inclined.
I haven't found anything too flattering yet to wear, or a location in the house with sufficient lighting. Right now, with winter, all the clothes I am wearing are super bulky and every picture I've taken looks like I ate too much pizza, and my skin is super washed out - not really pictures I want to put in an album or anything.
DH and my sister keep saying that I'm showing, but I tell them it's just the increase in appetite and a few extra lbs. Soon enough, I'm sure!
Totally cried at that second link. I wish that I had one ounce of their creativity and dedication.
I have a picture from 3w5d, and one from 5w (this week), but they're not on this computer. And I definitely am not showing yet. Just have a little bit of pooch, probably also from PCOS. I've always had a little tummy fat, but it's gotten a lot worse in the past couple of years. I don't think I'm going to post any pictures until you can actually tell I'm pregnant! But I'm wearing some stretchy exercise capris and a tight, stretchy t-shirt for my pictures. I'd like them all in the same place, but we're traveling, so that isn't an option. Also, hotel lighting for pictures? Is yucky.
Finally, on my third pregnancy I have plans to do the belly shots. However, I already know I won't keep up with once a week. So I'm only going to do once a month. I've found a dress I like this morning from JCpenny on line. I'm going to base my monthly shots off of the link listed above with the girl in the jersey dress. I got a Santa hat for this month. I also already bought some New Years party poppers for the Jan. shot. (I'll do the Xmas and NY shots further apart then two weeks, but it'll be the idea of what month it is). Feb. will be hearts and I'll prob. include hubby. So on and so forth.I will try to be pretty creative with each shot, but also keep it simple or I won't keep up with it.
And speaking of photographs, I need to get professional shots done for my website now; before I get any bigger. Oy! I need to hurry.
I don't have much of a belly to post yet, but I've definitely had to use the old "rubber band trick" with my pants already. For those of you who haven't done this before, you take a hairband or rubber band and attach it to the "hole" side of your fly and then wrap it around the button. It gives you an extra inch or so of space! :)

I've now used that with all 3 pregnancies! Though getting the bloat under control, will make a huge difference for me too.
