Yes, Bena smile.gif If we could live anywhere it would be in Canada. We met through a canadian band, we loveeee hockey. And don't get me started on poutine joy.gif
And so we aren't totally lame, I am 1/4 French Canadian, so we're semi-legit twins.gif

Super cute belly, withlittlelungs!  I am part french canadian, too.  Why my ancestors left the GreatWhiteNorth is a mystery to me, but I guess if they didn't, I wouldn't be here. :)

Such adorable bellies!

I'm so overweight that I don't think I'll look pregnant until I'm about 6 months along.  LOL.  Plus, I lost 22lbs from throwing up constantly, so I actually weigh a lot less than I did at the beginning of my pregnancy.  I'm afraid to even take pictures for myself, b/c I have such a huge flabby belly (that ugly baby pooch that never goes away with some people)... ugh.

Ok filiadeluna, I understand your hesitation but there is no judgement here. I love the fact that we all come in different shapes, sizes and colors! I think they we as women are way too hard on ourselves, if we embraced our bodies and loved them for what they are our lives would be so much easier. I know easier said then done but honestly I would love to see your belly picture, I am sure it is beautiful. I will be posting my eighteen week pic probably tonight.

Ok please forgive the eyes, I am so tired, but if I didn't force myself to take the picture it wasn't going to happen! LOL

18 weeks

15 weeks! My, this belly seems to be growing quickly...

chocolatechip such a cute bump! And I adore your shirt!

17 weeks/4 months...! Bump is moving up and belly button is half poking out already (well, only after I eat)

17 week bump!

Writermama12 my belly button has almost popped

post #92 of 595

Thank you, withlittlelungs! The shirt is on loan from my cousin. I find it funny how many maternity shirts have horizontal stripes, since in my normal life, that is really not a good look for me!

 

I love seeing everyone's bellies and how different they all look! Do bumps normally move up after a while, like writermama's is? I see dlilahbeau's is also higher...

 

writermama, I told my husband early on that pregnant women's belly buttons poke out eventually, and he didn't really believe me (clearly, he has not been paying very much attention to pregnant bellies). But now he's been watching my belly button get smoother and shallower, and he's realizing it could happen!

c. chip, hahaha. My belly button didn't poke out with my first child, but it sure did with the second. This time it's even faster! As for the bump question, I think it all depends on anatomy. My belly bloats really low so as my uterus grows, the bump fills out and up. :)

18 weeks today! I'm really looking pregnant now!

I don't think many belly buttons pop actually! Just from reading others stories. Mine pops out at about, oh, bfp! Now it's all the way out.
post #96 of 595

Mine popped out!  :)  It is not quite there yet, but I have a little extra padding than I did last time. ;)

post #97 of 595

So freaking adorable!! I love seeing all these bellies. 

 

withlittlelungs - I love your shirt, the buttons on the side are so cute!!!

post #98 of 595

Wow, I thought all belly buttons popped out!! Who knew. Maybe I just have a lot of friends who it happened to. smile.gif I will be interested, then, to see if mine does. Like I said, it's definitely getting noticeably shallower!

 

I am also enjoying seeing the different clothing choices in addition to the bellies.orngtongue.gif

C. Chip - I, too, thought all buttons popped.  And reading this last page had me running to the bathroom to check the status of mine.  Still in.  But there's some extra padding that it needs to work through.

 

I know my pants are getting tighter, but I really don't feel as if I have a "bump" yet, just extra stuff going on.  If I really let my stomach out, I guess I do.  Maybe I'll take a picture this week.

 

I shed my normal attire of PJ bottoms or work uniform bottoms for a dress last night (date night) and I put a belt on under my boobs and didn't worry about my growing girth.  I certainly felt like I looked pregnant for the first time.  No one said anything (not even DP).

I'm in the same boat, scruff.  I thought I'd have a legit preggo belly by now, but not really yet...  Not in a remotely obvious way, anyway.

 

I work from home, so tend to wear yoga pants and whatnot most days, whether pregnant or not...  Right now I'm still wearing my "transitional" non-maternity (but flowy-er) tops when I "go somewhere" and otherwise just wearing my basic knit tanks/tees with maybe a hoodie to hide the slight paunch/mini belly.  That's about it.  I bought a fair bit of maternity clothes from Old Navy's sale and the big consignment sale I went to, but they look stupid/too big still (IMO).  I thought at least by 20 weeks I'd be in them, but I'm 19+2 today and no end in sight...  Maybe by 22 weeks or so?
