Is there already a belly thread that I've missed? If not, let this be the start of one! I love watching beautiful bellies grow!
I don't love this pic of me, but here is my most recent pic at 17 weeks and 3 days:
Great thread. Will have to take some pics soon. It's nice to flash the belly. The other day I was desperate to use the bathroom in a store. The woman said, "Sorry for staff only" and then I opened my coat and flashed my preggo belly and she said, "oh, I seeeeee. Let me see what I can do".......having a bump is like having the golden ticket! ha ha!
Oh you beautiful ladies!
I don't have any proper belly shots but I did take one for my friend when I was just about 16 weeks, I think. I am in my pajamas!!!
I have since POPPED in the biggest way!!! And tijana, where on earth are you hiding that baby in that tiny tummy of yours!!!! Beautiful.
Zubeldia, how sweet of you. Your tummy is just as small! . I'll be honest - my belly looks pretty tiny - to the point where I don't even look pregnant and fit into my regular clothes in the AM hours. Once the clock hits like 7PM, I look about 5 weeks bigger than I do in the morning. It's weird. It's like all the food I eat throughout the day just settles in my stomach and makes me look fat. I get excited and then in the morning it's all gone, haha. Anyone else experiencing this?
I also have to say that I am smaller now than with my first child (she is 3). They say you start showing sooner with your 2nd pregnancy, but for me that's actually not the case. I compared my tummy with the photos from my first pregnancy. At about 12-13 weeks with my first pregnancy my tummy was as big as it is right now and I turned 17 weeks today.
Show off those bellies ladies :)
Tijana: My belly def got way bigger in the evenings until recently. So interested that you're showing later w/#2. I had a friend who didn't start wearing maternity clothes until 24 weeks with #2 - she carried completely differently than #1.
Here is my 19 weeks pic. I feel humongous these days!
Thank you, Vegan Princess! You certainly don't look humungous, but I can understand you feeling that way. I'm starting to feel pretty big already, although I know I have a long way to go. My brother and I were 9 1/2- and 10-lb babies (all length though), so I'm a bit nervous about how big this one will end up.
We find out the gender tomorrow. Yay!
Here I am at exactly 17 weeks (this last Sunday).
It's getting bigger, yay!
I could swear I felt baby flutters today. I am not 100% sure since I was active at the time, but I'm pretty sure that's what it was.
I can't wait until we find out the sex of the baby in exactly two weeks.
P.S. Beautiful bellies everyone!
great pics, everyone!
Tijana, you're so teeny! Oh my goodness. I can see the change happening though.
Babinogi, vegan princess, skinnylove, looking great, everyone!!
Zub, post another one! Let's see the update.
Here I am at 20 weeks. I'm short and I have literally no torso, so there's nowhere for baby to go but out. I've been all boobs and nothing else since I was about 15, so pregnancy is just accentuating all of that! Haha!!
I should take a morning and evening photo (in the same day).
My belly looks 20+ weeks at night, it's funny!
I can't stand drinking water (when water is all I used to drink before pregnancy).
I pretty much have to force myself to drink liquids, it sucks. My first pregnancy, I used to drink a gallon of water/day - EASY.
I think this has a lot to do with my constipation and looking bigger at night.
You look great dandylez !
