This is my rather strange, high, veiny belly at 8 weeks:

I never popped out so early with the other 3 pregnancies, but oh well!!

 

Anybody else like to share?

Cute bump!!

 

I don't have a belly yet. I do have to unbutton my pants because it's uncomfortable though! I'm just barely 6 weeks. Two more weeks, and I might have a bump like yours since I'm also on baby #4!

Thanks!  Its high so I'm not having to unbutton shorts (its summer here) yet like you are, which is great.  Yeah, both baby #4 but 20 years between us, I was a late starter!

There were taken on 12/19. bigeyes.gif  I was 5/6 weeks then.  I am even bigger now.  So even though it's my fourth and all, I either think my dates are off or there is more than one in there.  Cause it's not bloat.  Even after days of little food/water thanks to m/s, it still looks the same.

Beautiful bellies both of you!  I agree Crazycatlady that your dates just might be off a bit, that is indeed a good size belly for 6 weeks!  Are you going to have a dating U/s or just wait and see?

I did already!  Cause according to my LMP I should be 10/11 weeks already.  But according to two ultrasounds, no being able to hear the heartbeat yet, and a pelvic exam...I can only be six weeks max.  All very confusing for sure.

Yes that is confusing, you look more like 11 weeks or so, but then the ultrasounds... I dunno, hope you get some answers soon.

You guys had me all nervous cause I hadn't realized how big I was for only being 6 weeks.  I thought it was normal for a forth baby I guess.  I just took these tonight and I am 6/7 weeks.  I don't think I look much bigger than last week so maybe it's not so bad?

CCL,

You don't look much bigger then last week to me. 

 

 

 

I should do belly pics, but I just feel fat right now. I think my butt is expanding at the same size as my belly, which is mostly bloat.  shy.gif Which I don't mind when there is an obvious baby belly going on, not such is not the case yet.

Ok, I took a picture today... I'm 6 weeks. You can't really tell, but I DO have fluff there. My abs were flat before...

Here is my belly at 7.5 weeks or so. Definitely popping out. I was a lot closer to a flat tummy a few weeks back.

Chemistry, yours looks a lot like mine!  It's sort of concentrated in a little bulge just below my belly button.  This is my first and I am 9.4 weeks here.  I am also wearing my favorite around-the-house sweat pants.  :)

Maurine- Our bumps do look a lot alike! With my older kids, I was 65 lbs heavier at the start of my pregnancies, so this is my first time ever really getting to experience this cute, visible little bump thing. I am really enjoying it!

 

BabyCakes- This is OT, but that Halloween pic of you and your dd is freakin' adorable. Cute city!

I feel enormous compared to most of you! I guess it's because I was pregnant so recently.

erika, i was like that when I lost my baby at 12 weeks...I had been showing a lot and when I got pg the next month with dd2, I popped almost immediately!  It was crazy!

 

I need to take mine.  I'm 6w2d, and I had to use the rubberband through the buttonhole trick today. Never had that happen THIS early before, but then again it is my fourth. (but fifth time showing)

Thanks!  If it makes you feel better, I am a freakish pear shape.  My measurements are something like 33, 28, 42!  :)  Oh well...my big ole hips are good for a few things...birthing babies is one of them (fingers crossed!).

I was using a hair tie!  Less likely to snap, and I always have a few around.  LOL!  But I find the belly band is a lot more comfy (and faster when you reallllly have to pee!)

I actually used a hair tie too, but my preggo brain couldn't remember what it was called.  (seriously.  Four kids will do that to you.)  The bella band is my fave too, but it was in the wash lol!

Everyone looks amazing!  Interesting some of us have high bellies, others low.  At least low you can say some of it is baby, but a high belly like mine is just pure guts at this point! 

 

Erika your bump is beautiful and I'm so sorry to read about your precious Landen. 

 

Baby Cakes you do NOT look fluffy at all, and your DD is so incredibly sweet in her little costume!

 

I love all our beautiful growing bellies love.gif

ok, I have major stretchmarks from my last two pregnancies, so pretend those don't exist, k? love.gif

I realize some of it is bloat, but jeez it happens earlier the more you have!  This is my fourth, but fifth time showing.  Can't button my pants.  I need to get another bella band, cause mine has to be washed often!
