I know it's still early for a belly thread, but I thought I'd start off with preg test pictures.

 

Personally, i'm 5'3" and very petite, so I am starting to show already. 

 

just found out today...

I did take a "before" belly pic on Sept 2, but mostly I just look fat. I can't believe how much I've bloated up over the past 4 weeks.

So, until I have a beautiful belly to show, here's my positive!

Hi aHikaru and TwilightJoy, remember you both from the TTC thread. Here is my positive, faint but definitely there.

This is my cheap dollar store test.  Wouldn't you know we bought three and three ovulation tests plus a big pack of cups (I totally thought these were the midstream ones).

I still haven't taken a pic of my proper positive test yet, AND I have a left over digital from DS2 that will expire before this baby is born, so I guess I shouldn't waste it and pee on it too, then I'll have it in writing and not just the 2 lines.

 

Will try to do it in the morning and then post the pics.

I tested yesterday because I also noticed that the test expires next month :P planning on taking the digital tomorrow :)

I took tow expired Dollar Tree tests and I still am really pregnant! I was sure they would be negative then I'd wonder if they were right and go buy expensive ones, but the faint line told the story instead!

Not showing at all here yet. . .

OK, I think a number of us are really starting to show  now so I am going to bump this up.  I am still sort of alarmed that this is what my belly looks like at only 9 and a half weeks!  I know it's cause it's baby number three but in the back of my mind I wonder about twins.  DD1 has been talking about there being "two babies in there"  since the week I found out (even before we told the kids I was pregnant). The doctor was teasing that she must have read on WebMD that twins can be a reason for increased morning sickness.  haha  Maybe that's why I look scared in the picture. winky.gif

I am not showing one bit.  I put on my regular dress pants for my 10 week appointment yesterday and they weren't even snug.  Even though this is baby 3, it's going to be a while before I show according to the OB.  Something about the way my hips are structured....it did take a LONG time to show for the first pregnancy.  Which means, essentially, I will be devistated when the dress pants stop fitting!  bawling.gif

Here is my photo from the other thread at 6w5d:


I'll probably take another photo at 12 weeks.

Also a copy from other thread...I guess I didn't know this one existed!

berrymama, what a gorgeous pic- and a toned tummy! I'm jealous. 

 

I'm way too bloated to have anything resembling an actual baby bump. I'm 8 wks 2 days, and this is my second child. I'll probably post one when I get closer to 10-12 wks.

interesting info :) people didn't notice until I was 5 months pregnant with my first, halloween day to be exact :)... and now I think I wont be showing until later.

 

just read my first post :P I WAS showing/ bloated for the first 2 months, now the bloating is gone and now I just have a hard "grapefruit" sized uterus that hides in my long torso.

same here with the showing and not showing... I really wanted to be that pregnant lady who always wears dresses, but now I have found myself going through all my sweat pants and online shopping for more pairs on victoria secret :/ I just tell myself that its cold and it'll be my early christmas present :) I'll post my 12 week shot next week.

hehe, i have such expectations of this idea of how i want to look in my mind as a pregnant lady.. if i dont look like it i think i will be annoyed.. but im either in pyjamas/maternity jeans (omg they are so comfy.. u dont even have to worry about buttons lol) at home, or baggy dresses and big coats out :P i think i will hide it longer too because of the wheelchair, i always have my bag on my lap and ive always had swollen tummy probs.. but i kindve want someone to notice im pregnant lol.. dunno.. dont think they will anytime soon :P

I'll be 10 weeks on Saturday and my belly has totally popped. It has actually been larger than I expected it would be this early in the game even though I knew that it can happen sooner with the second one. My mom was even teasing me about having twins because of how big my bump was a week and a half ago and now it its way bigger:) My little guy (33 months) was even noticing my tummy this morning and when I asked if he knew what was hiding in my tummy he said "baby!" And then he put his mouth right to my belly button and shouted Hello to the baby in there:) It really made my morning.
