I'm so envious of the actually-looking-like-a-bump bumps. I'm just getting rounder. :(  But at least, comparing to a few weeks ago, there's a tiny bit of change.

 

Left is 12/8 (11w5d) and right is 12/25 (14w1d).

I feel huge!! This is today (at work) and I am 13 weeks. This is my third so maybe that's why I got so big this quickly?!



okay so i guess this isn't the best picture... i will try and take another one where you can actually SEE my belly! lol

I think that first shot is great, Shanna-cat! I can definitely see that belly, it's such a cute round bump!

I'm only on baby #2, but at 15 weeks I look like i did around 18 weeks with dd. I actually dont mind it right now, but I am nervous about how huge I will be in the 3rd trimester!

aw thanks! 

 

i guess what's really making me feel so big right now is the weight and pull on my belly... if that makes any sense. I feel like i need one of those belly support bands that i only used for about two weeks in the third tri with my other boys. and i'm hardly into my second tri now! it is pretty uncomfortable and i am nervous about the rest of my pregnancy if i already feel so big. hopefully it will just get gradually bigger from here on out- i've never been a 'big' prego women (i actually i looked relatively small) but i guess it might change with this one!

I totally felt like that for a couple of weeks! It made me terrified of how things are going to progress....but I think it must have just been a growth spurt because the discomfort has eased a bit now.  I wonder if it has something to do with my ligaments loosening up or something. I am definitely showing more with this baby than I did with my last...last time at this point you couldn't even tell I was pregnant yet...or maybe just barely.  This time I have been showing since about 14 weeks (I'm 18 now). It's kinda fun to be showing earlier this time around.

A little bit rounder every week! I'm currently 16.5 weeks!

How tall are you. Crystal Marie? You look like you have a long torso, I bet that's where you're hiding the baby. It's your first, right? I just can't believe how tiny you still are!

 

It's so interesting to see the range of body types and baby bumps in this thread. I love it! It will be really interesting to see how everyone looks at the end. I was looking through the December DDC's belly thread last night, just amazed by how differently women carry. It also reminded me of how BIG my belly got last time. It took over my body! I'm short and have a short torso, so there is nowhere for baby to go but OUT. I love showing early, because I like to look as pregnant as I feel early on, but I am starting to worry a bit about how big I might be by the end.

 

For reference, here is a shot of my just shy of 39 weeks last time. I think I'm in denial right now that it eventually gets that big!!

I'm 5'9  and yes, I'm constantly being told I have a really long torso by my midwife. I guess even a little long in comparison to my height. Baby #1 for me, I assume I'll show earlier with the next pregnancies. I'm eagerly awaiting actually looking pregnant. DH and I can tell but just about no one else can. 

 

You look fabulous at 39 weeks!

That's a baby bump!! Before I read what you wrote, I was stunned - like My goodness did she POP!!, lol...glad to know that's your 39 week shot nut.gif.  I agree, it's so cool to see all of the different belly pictures.  I am pretty tall with a long torso and last time I was barely showing at the same point I am now...not even in maternity clothes I don't think! So I figured for fun, here is my 18 week from DS, 18 week from now and 39 week from DS.

I love the comparison shots from first and 2nd pregnancies! I also love that purple striped shirt you're wearing.

Oh thanks! It's from Motherhood maternity...I'll update in Bump Fashion soon ;)

Everyone looks great! 

 

I don't have a picture, but I'm around 17.5 weeks pregnant. During the last week, my belly suddenly got so big, whereas before there was only enough there for my husband and me to know for sure. I feel so big now! Second pregnancy and I'm quite short (5'1"ish). I was much thinner to begin than during my last pregnancy (20lbs less, and I wasn't overweight technically before) and I thought this would mean that I would show more gradually. I guess not!

Kitteh, what a big bump you had! Wow!! As a first time mama, that makes me a bit scared to see- how will I sleep when I'm that pregnant! Yikes!

You might not get that huge! At only 5'2" I'm hardly a fully grown adult woman :P So dd really had nowhere else to go but OUT!

I'm also totally in denial about how uncomfortable the last few weeks get to be.
post #76 of 570
I'm 5'9" with a long torso so maybe I'll carry a bit different. Baby seems to be sitting high already, but it's hard to tell because I'm not showing a ton yet (seems to coincide with constipation).... lol

Here is my bump from today 14w1d (I'm technically due July 4th).  8th time carrying to 14w :)

Cute belly Tenk! You have a nice bedroom too! Love the bed set!
post #79 of 570

Thanks mama!!!  We are going to redo our bedroom with grey and white and little by little we are updating.  The comforter is new (from IKEA!!) and eventually we'll sell our furniture and simplify all of it.  It's BIG and heavy!!

Here's mine from today, and also my 15w from my first preg. We barely took any belly pics that first time (darnit!!!) so I don't have a lot to compare to but, this week I can!!
