lol... Ok, ok.. I'll post a pic later this evening. I'm actually feeling less HUGE today.

post #82 of 670

well, I was hesitating to post because I'm only 7 1/2 weeks and haven't seen any difference yet. I feel flabby because I haven't been exercising since I started vomiting about 2 weeks ago. Still, it will probably make a good "before" picture.

I know I only recently posted, but there's finally a real difference! I knew I was feeling growing pains this week. Here are weeks 4, 6, 9, 10:

Yay Andaluza, it's a little bump! 

 

I'm definitely not showing at all yet, probably because I have a tilted uterus.  My doc said at my 9 week appointment that my uterus was still completely in my pelvis.  I'll have to wait a little before I show I guess.  I do, however, have a "vacation bump" from eating too much while I was away.  Here's hoping the bloat dies down soon.  I'd like to have gained no more than 5 pounds by the end of the first trimester.  I was doing well until I decided to eat nothing by guacamole and gelato for a whole week.

Lol, Lilytiger, mine is probably nothing more than bloat and food, since I've been eating more oats and broiled veggie sandwiches--I can't get enough!

here is my protrusion! My midwife says it's mostly that 10cm fibroid. Oh and I'm preggers in the back too - my rump is GROWING!

lol Thebyr - you look great! a beautiful baby bump! 

 

post #88 of 670

Thebyr, crazy.  You look GREAT!!!  Let's call it a baby bump.  It's adorable.  LOL.  Booty bigger here too!

post #89 of 670

All the bumps look great.  Even if it is just bloat or guacamole. LOL

post #90 of 670

Aww - you guys are the SWEETEST. I was REALLY nervous about sharing my bump -seeing as how it seems so much bigger than it should be. I popped out somewhere between the 9th week and the this week. I look really preggers so we finally told my parents and the hub's parents. They are soooo excited.

 

See - here was my 9 week pic: IMAG0360.jpg

It's really not bigger than it should be, Thebyr. I've got pictures from my 4th pregnancy where my belly at 9 weeks is bigger than that, lol, and I didn't have a fibroid. You look beautiful. I still haven't shared any of me... I took a couple but eh... I'm showing but not really, lol. I was like this my last pregnancy as well. Seeing as I walk around most of the time holding my belly IN it's really not popping out much (except in the evenings).

post #92 of 670

lol - thanks Demeter (but that was your 4th pregnancy - what's my excuse?). I'll stop fretting over it. I really appreciate your kind words - really I do. I probably should be trying to hold my tummy in A LITTLE just to salvage a little of those muscles for a little while longer - but it's probably too late - I released LONG ago.

So I was looking at myself in the mirror today and went OMG! This is not my normal belly shot day, so I didn't break out my good camera. Excuse the pore photo quality...

post #94 of 670

I'm really embarrassed to show how fat I am. This is me at 10w5d. It's not a pregnancy belly, I promise, it's just, uh, a belly.

Aimee, you are beautiful... I will add a pic tonight. I just have to find a place I want to take them and do it on the fly with no one (kids, family) noticing, lol.

post #96 of 670

I think I'm going to start taking mine next week after my appointment.  I have to figure out what to wear, since I'd like to wear the same thing for all of them for comparison.  Plus figure out where to do them - my house isn't really conducive to picture taking.  Bad lighting.

post #97 of 670

Amiee and Lacto - AWESOME bellies. Maybe because this isn't my first pregnancy (even though first baby) - my uterus is feeling a little freer to move too. lol

 

I think preggy lady bellies are gorgeous.

I really wanted to do that too, and I bought a dress that's going to be great in a few weeks, but it's too loose right now to show my lower belly. So my earlier pics will be tank tops. And yeah, mine is on the back porch because our house has crappola lighting. So few windows-- great for heat and cooling efficiency in the desert, but sucky for general living!
