The official August Belly Shot Thread

post #1 of 308
Thread Starter 
Alright I have no idea how to make this a sticky thread at the top?
Anyway, I know technically I am due at the end of July but my doc gave me August 3rd so I thought I'd be the trailblazer and post the first belly pics in the August DDC. I can't be the only one showing am I??
Here is a link to my facebook belly album which I will hopefully update weekly.

Cmon let's see those growing bellies!

Cute! I'll definitely be adding a picture soon. I'm showing already, and I'm only 5w 4d. I think there's something about baby #3 that made me show about 2 seconds after I got the positive test.

That's the same here! My family keeps teasing that it must be twins! But I think 3rd babies just pop a lot sooner? Can anyone else with 3 DC's atest to that theory? :-)

Well, weirdly enough I didn't know I was pg w/ #3 until I was 18 w 3 days. I was on the depo shot and since I don't get symptoms ... lol I didn't know until I felt him move! Oh, and I was realizing that I must be gaining alot of weight b/c I couldn't hardly button my pants anymore .... like, I was really sucking in. Well, I was also working in an office then and wore alot of dresses an things. Anyway!

I will say that, it seems like I'm already showing w/ #4. Mostly in the evening after I've had alot to eat! Does anyone else fantasize? lol

Oh, and I happened to take a photo of my belly this morning with a message written on it. We're planning on using the photo to make the announcement next week at our families house at Christmas....... Wana use that one for now? Will we ost photos once a month to track progress? Or what?

Does anyone know how to sticky this to the top of the thread so that all the mama's will see it as new ones come or they remember to take pics?

Jenn,
PM Chanley. She's the mod for this DDC. Tell her you want the thread stickied, and link her to it in your PM. Need more detail?

This is an unofficial belly shot, taken at 7 weeks 5 days. It turned out better than any of my "official" shots this week.

Wow! That's amazing. Look at your little belly! I'll have to take some pictures of mine. I'll forwarn you that I had a little stomach before the baby but it's chunky now. LOL

I just rolled down my sweatpants for the first time as I sat down to mdc. I saw this thread and thought, hmm. So, maybe it wasn't the takeout for dinner tonight after all? I must be popping quickly with the 3rd, too. Good thing I haven't lost the pg weight from 3months ago, (we're not telling yet) so no one will notice over the holidays.

I look like I've popped at about 5wks 4days, too! This baby will technically be #4, but I didn't show at all with my angel that I lost in July at 7-8 weeks. I did buy 3 pairs of maternity pants tonight and have a slew on my watch list on ebay Guess I'll be telling people sooner than I thought!!!

I've been pretty good taking pics with my other 2 (of course, my husband is a photographer). I regretted not getting a nude one, though. I had planned to with #2, but then ended up spending the last 2 weeks in the hospital before having him early. So this time for sure! And dh will be elated!!

I do feel like I'm popping out a bit already. I have felt SO fat the last 2 weeks. Now I know why!

Okay, so here's the belly this morning, at 7w5d. I'm already unable to button pants that were ENORMOUS on me a few weeks ago....

Wow, you all are showing way sooner than I would have guessed. Is it because they're 2nd and 3rd babies? Well, that and you were so fit and trim before getting pregnant--I'll have to remember that for next time .

Wow! I was wondering if I was showing too early and I'm only 8 weeks. Whew!

If I feel brave later, I'll take a jiggle pic!
