Hi All!! Here I am 16/17 weeks pregnant with my first baby! Finally get to experience being pregnant after years of being a home birth midwife myself! Love seeing all the other March bellies on here! :)

Here's me @ 14 weeks:

Writermama-- This is going to sound funny, but I have been admiring your belly for a little while.  It's so cute-- reminds me of a winter squash, somehow.

 

 

I sent my most recent belly pic to Dr. Mom and she said I still don't look pregnant to her yet.  shrug.gif  I don't know if she meant "you don't look like a pregnant person" (like if she didn't know me, she wouldn't know) or "you, personally, don't look pregnant/different to me."  But if it's the latter, I am mildly annoyed!  lol.gif  Not that there's anything wrong with the way I look right now-- but I don't normally look this way!

 

I am kinda conflicted-- in some ways looking forward to "popping," and feeling awkward right now, where I'm just wearing the not-so-form-fitting but non-maternity tops so that I don't draw attention to what (IMO) just looks like a thick waist.... and OTOH, I don't mind putting off the inevitable comments from strangers and buttinsky cr@p about what I'm putting in my mouth and how I'd better ask for the epidural in the parking lot.  Meh-- I'm getting prickly in my old age.  nut.gif  I could talk all day about Buko to people who care... but I don't really want to discuss my pregnancy with everybody and their mom.  IDK-- ask me again in a couple months.

yeahthat.gif Well, I haven't been admiring it for awhile since I'm new here, but I agree that it's very cute and I love the winter squash comparison thumb.gif  When I saw it earlier, I felt the urge to kiss it or blow raspberries on it lol, I hope that's not too weird.  Also, withlittlelungs, your belly is super cute, too, and is asking for raspberries lol.gif

Buko, it totally does! hahahahaha. laughed hard about that. 

 

Linnaea, hahaha--it would make a nice sound too since it's so...soft and squishy right now.

Hi ladies! I'm pretty new here, but enjoying reading through a bunch of the discussions. I *love* this thread, and seeing all the beautiful bellies! :) Here is mine, at 13.5 weeks (due March 29th - I'm at the very tail end of this group). This is my first, and I'm a bit surprised at how quickly it's popping out, but I'm totally okay with it. Went and got some maternity clothes last weekend, and am very happy to be comfortable again. :)

15 week baby bump!  photo taken by my four year old!  smile.gif

post #72 of 595

Joining in the fun :)

I don't ever really buy maternity clothes, just larger sizes and stuff that feels more comfortable.

The best purchase as of late has been some super comfy grande under wear. man what a difference having

bigger more comfortable undies has been!

 

15 weeks plus some days

post #73 of 595

Nearly 16 weeks and growing strong :)

                                                        

The first photo is more flattering to my, uh, figure. I wish I could walk around with my arms stretched above my head all the time. I'd look much taller. But only posting this photo is kind of cheating. 

 

 

 

Here is a more realistic shot when I'm not stretching out. Much bigger belly.

I am LOVING all the bellies, mamas!!!  I need to get another one in!

post #75 of 595

Your belly is adorable, writermama! orngbiggrin.gif  I can't wait for mine to actually look like a pregnant belly and not just a belly that can be easily mistaken for eating too many cheeseburgers or whatever lol.gif

Cocoanib - I've been thinking about new undies, too.  As much as I don't yet have a "bump", things are thicker and my underwear (which I only wear at work anyway) is driving me nuts!!! Won't stay in place.

 

I can't believe how much variation there is in everyone's bumps!!!!  This is such a cool thread!

I was trying to wait on the undies, because I still have prego ones from last time. Those are too big for now though and I just had to do something, because I was so uncomfortable. It's amazing the difference some comfy underwear has made in my mood!

At home I just wear undies and sometimes a loose sports bra, depending on how sore my boobs are. Even shoes and socks bother me. I'm so uncomfortable this time around!

post #78 of 595

Yes, it's amazing!  Especially since I work from home and am having a HB, I don't get to see many preggos IRL, so this is really nice.  I am finding the variation just as stark IRL though, when I do see fellow pregnant ladies...  In my prenatal yoga class, there is a 2nd-time mom who is 24 weeks and just a tiny bit bigger than me (when I was 17.5 weeks), and another 1st-time mom who is 14 weeks and significantly bigger than me!  When I went to the local CD/BW shop, the saleslady was also preggo, muuuuuch bigger than me, and come to find out we have the same EDD (she has 2 kids already, though, of course).  There's so little rhyme or reason!
