How much weight are we supposed to gain, anyways?  I weight the same as pre-pregnancy lol.gif Maybe my organs have just shifted around or something.  I'm scared to see what I'm going to look like after breakfast!

I don't know how much you're supposed to gain, no idea. Not much in the first trimester anyway, right? My belly is still quite non existent in the AM. In the PM it's definitely there though.

post #44 of 358

Weight gain, from what I have heard int he first trimester should be no more than 3-5 lbs.  But, it is common for women to gain less or even lose a little bit of weight.  Total overall weight gain is 25-35 for average woman. 

 

I took a belly picture last night, but didn't like that I looked all bloated and yucky...  So, I will wait to post until next week! 

WindyCityMom, You def have a little baby growing in there!  Such a difference in 1 week!!! :)

My fundus is above my pubic bone blush.gif I felt it there last week with a full bladder laying down... but this morning, I can kind of feel it standing and most definitely laying down (with an empty bladder).  Oy!  I know there's only one in there.  When I used the doppler I only picked up one heartbeat (don't worry, I'm putting it away for a few weeks!), and when I had an ultrasound in the ER they only saw one and dated the pregnancy.. so I'd still only be 9 weeks.  Maybe subsequent babies grow your uterus in odd directions? lol.gif

post #46 of 358

That's what I am thinking... Cuz I have been able to feel my fundus for over a week and read that it's not supposed to be feel-able until 12 weeks!  (we have the same due date, so) I am only 9 weeks and freaking out!  I do not even have a mw appt until March 10th, so no doppler until then and no U/S until late April/early May.  I am glad I am not alone in the extra large uterus!  lol.  It gives me peace of mind that there is just a singleton in there.  :)

I felt my fundus with my DS (3rd pregnancy) at about 10w. But I have a pretty retroverted uterus anyway...back and toward my left hip ;)  Our bodies definitely remember!

Love your pics, WindyCityMom! My belly is bigger than it seems in this photo - the light or the angle makes it seem smaller.

I love your creativity and all with the lime, BBean!  I def see a change from your last pic!

 

 

I'll see if I can get mine posted soon.  I feel like last week was 90% bloat so we shall see how this week turns out!

i still havent taken more pics...gotta get to it.
post #51 of 358

Well, I didn't think I was showing much, but holy crap!  Now, I did got to Cali the week of my seventh, so some of that might be bloating and such from eating/flying. But still.....I'm 9 weeks on Tuesday and can very clearly feel my fundus already.  So crazy how quickly it's all changing!  I am still in regular clothes, but they are especially snug after I eat.

Wow....so I'm wayyyy bigger than everyone else. These are 8-week pics, and this is baby #3. All my pregnancies have been close together- not sure how much of a difference that makes. I do work out a lot, so I swear my abs don't look like this normally. Twins and triplets run in my family, so I feel a little freaked out right now. Will feel better once I get my u/s!

Erin, I am willing to bet you are not bigger than me!  lol

 

Here I am at 10 weeks, 1 day! I look like I did when I was 16-18 weeks preggo with dd1!!!!  Yikes! Also, it looks like my shirt is laying funny... Like stretched over boobs to belly weirdly...  Maybe the next shot will be better with that! lol

jodieanneanton- your uterus is likely out of your pelvis for sure lol.gif

 

 

Here's mine.. 9 weeks vs 10 weeks... not much of a change.  And please ignore the too-cluttered back porch catch all area I took the picture in :)

Here's 14 weeks with my DD1.  Keep in mind I was 16 and pretty in-shape pre-pregnancy!  My body definitely remembers!

These bellies are the cutest! I am due for an update soon too...

post #56 of 358

All of the bellies are so freaking cute!!  My good camera broke right around Christmas, so I have snapped a few pics with my cell phone, but they're just so bad. We ordered another camera yesterday and it should be in on Monday, and I'll be over 10 weeks then so hopefully it'll be as good a time as any to start posting the real growth shots.  In any case, here's a bad baseline pic taken at 5w and change.  All the usual disclaimers: messy bedroom (we just moved here Jan 1!), unshowered, dirty mirrors, etc.

I cannot put cell phone pics on this board. It won't let me. That is just weird. How do you get those pics on here from your phone? Or do you upload them somewhere else first?

OK, OK, peer pressure LOL. What else do you do when you're bored at work. Here's my belly shot, 10 weeks today, definetely more to see than on the last pic. Maybe I can get that in here somehow. From up front my belly button has popped out already (it never went all the way back in) and my pants are held up by a lovely yellow rubberband :)

Love the belly shots!
