I don't know how anyone could follow up the last post on here, but someone's got to do it!
Please ignore the goofy "blissfully pregnant" look on my face. DH saw me trying to photograph myself and insisted on doing it, and I suddenly had no idea what to do with my facial muscles at all.

Yeeska's picture was AWESOME, btw.
I'm debating on when to have (fully clothed!) maternity pictures done. My options are August 4th (when I'll be 32w6d) or September 8th (37w6d). On one hand, I think the weather will be better in September (the pics will be outdoor) and I actually do want to be full-on totally big and pregnant ... but there may be such a thing as too large -- I look kind of ridiculous in my 41w belly shot from last time around and though I love all the pics, wouldn't exactly want to pay a professional to have taken one at that point. ( I think there's pretty much zero way that I'll deliver the baby by Sept 8 at almost 38 weeks (since I was induced with DD at 41+5) so I don't think that should be a consideration). What do you guys think?
I finally took a picture yesterday while at the gym... but I'm on my phone now and nit sure I can pull it off my phone to here. I'll get it later tonight!
Yay! My first belly pic post!! Here is a crappy gym mirror pic from yesterday after I got wonderfully sweatified... but.. somehow I felt the need to snap a pic ;)
So... I'm 26w4d along in this pic.... I'm way bigger this time around (though I swear, the belly just grew overnight about two weeks ago!)... not sure if it's because it's #5 or what! And, I'm certain I don't always look this big all the time... weird! But... I still feel pretty great overall... not running so much, but did get a teeny, tiny run in yesterday (it was National Running Day.. I HAD to! ;) ), but still do weights and cardio activities. Trying to keep it up as we all head into the home stretch!
Crystal, it's interesting to see how your posture is changing in each picture. I wonder how they would compare if you stood up really straight like before? I would, personally, do the later maternity shoot. I plan to do one pretty late (like 40 weeks, because I usually go 42 at least) and I get totally ridiculous bellies.
Judybean - Good to see you finally, I had this picture of you in my head and now here you are for real :)
Here I am this week, 28 weeks today! (My first pics here too because I feel self concious! Although judging by the semi nakid pic you may not think so!)
Mine hasn't grown much in the past weeks. I was comparing my 26 week shot with my 23 week shot...not much of a difference. I feel my uterus way high though so I guess something must be going on :). It's still high up and all up front. I have a feeling I'm gonna have a 'watermelon' under my shirt again, just like with the other two :)
I LOVE the bathtub shot! It's so cool to see all of the different shapes and sizes our bellies are, too. You guys all look fantastic!
So I was inspired to take something all flattering in B&W! Especially now that I found a swimsuit top that doesn't make my boobs look like the punch line to a bad joke. Also, the cottage cheese factory that is my bottom these days is so not flattering, so I made sure to get a picture that highlights the things that I LOVE about my body right now. (I'm so flexing my stomach muscles, too. Which is a little odd too see when they're not where they used to be )
motomom: Holy cow! That's an amazing pic!
I'm almost embarrassed to post this, because I've been tracking my growth every two weeks or so, and it doesn't look half as amazing as all your photos. But I wanted to remember how small I was at the beginning, so I put together this collage and thought I'd share:
