Yay!  I love all the bumps!  Y'all look so great!  I need to take a pic this week.  My bump is actually smaller than before since going off the Zofran.  It made me constipated and therefore quite bloated which I didn't realize-I just though I was huge!  haha.  I had to laugh at myself a bit.

I had the boob thing too at first. I probably would've looked even bigger in my first tri if my boobs hadn't gotten so big first.

Hehe.. Lisdea-your bump is AMAZING :D am very jealous,

 

and bailey-boobs are crazy things.. im heading off the 30f scale now.. have you all moved into maternity bras? they dont do them really in my size.. its a nightmare.. so ive just been trying to make sure my bra's dont cut in atall instead, im starting to think i mite need to get g's soon.. and potentially get some bra extenders for when my tummy gets bigger.. or is it wise to get one with a bigger band size? any ideas?

Just two more weeks until we find out if it's a boy or a girl in there!  (and praying that everything else looks good in there too!)

CUTE! I like the stripes behind you too.

I think the belly fairy may be heading my way.  This does not please me.  Although then I'll get to have people give up their spots in line for me, so there's that.

 

Yup, still struggling with the body image over here.

Said I was going to post 8-12-16 week sequence after taking the 16 wk ones Saturday, but when DH uploaded them, I couldn't tell which was which! :( I'm ready to have a belly already! Ok, if I'm honest, it IS there, but I think I'll wait til 20 instead.

 

Told a casual friend today at lunch and she said "I DID notice your belly earlier!" which tickled me. So maybe you can tell a little bit?

post #134 of 725

all my friends are like.. " where is the baby" every time they look at my tummy hehe.. im 18 weeks (in one minute) and still barely showing, my p.a told me today he didnt think i'd show for another month.. rubbish.. when i found out i was going to be in cornwall around 20/21 weeks for christmas i thought i was gonna be huge and it'd be really hard lol.. but so far im still wearing normal clothes (except when im trying to feel morepregnant or am being too lazy for buttons on jeans) and i cant see it changing dramatically any time soon.. but i think the growth of the baby starts massively speeding up around now so who knows!

What cute bumps, Liseda and CoBaby!

keep them coming!

 

Timesway, I know we can see a difference but I'm sure under clothes it just blends right in. I hope you have something to show the family by christmas!

 

Here I am at 18 weeks on a business trip - the lighting at the hotel was better than by the mirror in our bedroom, so I figured I'd sneak in a shot! I have definitely hit the point where the belly is bigger than the boobs.

Despite trading most of my pants for maternity styles by now, I was amazed to find that the pants for this suit still fit! they were a size big to begin with, but I wore them all day and didn't get uncomfortable until about 10pm on the flight home. It makes me wonder what will happen to my pants after the birth. For those who've BTDT, what pregnancy week is a good reference for how big you were about a month after giving birth? If I could go back to work able to wear these pants again, it might mean I can avoid buying a maternity suit - I figured I could wear it for 6 months of pregnancy and 6 months after, but that may not be the case.

To be honest, you just never know.  You don't know what your total weight gain will be, where you will carry the weight or how fast you will lost it.  Some women's bodies go back quickly while others take longer even if they are at their pre-pregnancy weight.  This blogger shared a picture of her at 4 months postpartum and 7 months postpartum at the exact same weight.  http://www.allthingsgd.com/2010/08/my-body-after-baby.html Our bodies just take time.  I'm not trying to be negative, just encourage you to be patient and realistic. 

I can say that, for me, by 6 months I could fit into most things but that is not always the case.

I lose all but about 10 or 15 lbs by 6-8 weeks PP. Then I don't lose that until after I stop breastfeeding (although I only bf until 4 months and I think you burn more calories when bf longer than 6 months). I was surprised though after having my first that I couldn't fit into the jeans I had packed to wear home from the hospital. They weren't my regular jeans but they weren't maternity. I think after about 6 months my body has gone back to its more pre-pregnancy shape but just a little heavier depending on bf and what not.

thanks for the input! I was pleasantly surprised to still have professional pants that fit which just made me think of the future - I know I'm jumping the gun.

 

It's an amazing transition our bodies go through, and now that I'm past the awkward fat stage, I'm actually enjoying it!

When I went back to work 4 months out I was wearing my one-size-up-pants still for comfort, got back into my regular pants probably 6-7 months out, though nothing fit exactly the same as my body was a little different, so really close fitting pants may not work right for longer or not ever. Bras took until 9 months after I was done nursing to get back into my pre-pregnancy size, though that is not the case for everyone, and my boobs were much less perky too of course. One month out I don't really remember, but I lost weight quite quickly, probably could have been in the one-size-up at that point, but I was mostly wearing yoga pants.

Can't wait to post take my next belly picture, it's stretched out a bit more smile.gif
