Cathy! I can't believe you are only 9 weeks! 12 weeks I could understand, but nine today? I am only a few days until my 9 week mark and I am only half as big as you! No offense, because you definitely look preggo and good! Any way you could be further along than that or are their multiples in your family?? Or maybe you are just showing much earlier than me...that is probably it!

Jenevire, wow!  You look great for being ready to have a baby in that pic!  Honestly, I'd not even guess you were that pregnant!  Awesome! 

 

This is what I looked like at 40 weeks with my first pregnancy -  I get all huge and stuff everytime. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v63/mandemack/40wkssam.jpg

Thanks! How tall are you? I'm 5'9" and already on the heavy side so it doesn't get so noticeable and I haven't gained very much with my last three.  Right now all you would see is my already existing belly, it doesn't look cute until the the baby actually gets bigger.

No, no offense taken and its only 9wks.  I was charting and my dh and I were trying to avoid, but because of stress I was ovulating later than usual.  We only dtd once that week due to not liking each other very much.  I think all the stress from last year was finally coming out all at once.  It was not a good week, but I guess making up in the middle of all that created something good.  I think with starting to eat carbs and being on insulin I'm starting to gain more weight more rapidly.  I have gained 7.5 pounds since the beginning of this pregnancy, but it could be twins.  That would make this pregnancy my last.  LOL!!  I think I like one baby at a time, still it would be a blessing to have two. orngbiggrin.gif

 

That's so weird , some of the smilies are missing.

Oh my goodness earthlady! I am 5'7" too. My mom is 5'0" and was told at 9 months that she looked like she was going to fall over. She had people stopping her on the street to ask her if she was ok. If it i genetic, like stretch marks, regardless of height, I might end up looking the same! But I have a very very long torso so it may be different. It will be fun seeing how I, and everyone else, grows and progresses! Beautiful pictures everyone!

I joy.gifseeing everyone's belly pics and can't wait to see more!

 

 

Here are the first of my belly pics! smile.gifhttps://picasaweb.google.com/Tenderhearted.Cowgirl/Baby3BellyPics?authkey=Gv1sRgCNC0h-XytZj8Sw&feat=directlink

I"m really unsure of how things are going to start showing/look this time around as my abs are still separated from my last pregnancy... So some days I'd look pregnant just from that even before I was pg...  Very excited about having a baby belly again though!

AW!  you are so cute!  I think that's probably a BIG part of why I'm showing so much so soon, apart from this being my 4th babe, my abs were still seperated too.  I honestly think I'll need surgery to correct it when I'm done having babies cause I've done all the exercises that are supposed to bring them back together and it's not worked.

I am sooooo excited about this thread... Before I got here, I honestly thought I was going crazy because I've been showing since 6wks. I am exactly 8 wks today and was going to start taking pictures. I will post when I do. I love seeing all the little bellies here... orngbiggrin.gif

Aw. Thanks! The leggings and skirt are from Motherhood Maternity, but the shirt is just a stretchy spaghetti strap cami from Old Navy, not maternity. I'm on a hot search for long flowy maternity skirts, but can't find any that are affordable. That's how I ended up with above skirt. Hubby saw it when he was out of town and bought it for me. God bless him. smile.gif

Ok, going to post a picture this am.  A warning though, I have an insulin pump and I had been sticking myself with insulin for the last week or so before the pump, its not going to be pretty.  I might have to switch sides for my picture so my pump doesn't distract from my belly.

Ok, here we go, complete with double chins (even at my thinnest  I can't get rid of genetics orngtongue.gif).  My nurses that I have been working with made me realize I need to avoid those big blue veins so I don't leave bruises on myself.  What do you all think, should I take my pic from now on from the other side?  Let me know what you think.

10wks 1day by the way.

I think you've shrunk!  You look smaller than the last couple of weeks....to me.

 

I think I might be a bit smaller too though.  When is your estimated due date?  Are we the same?  I'm 'due' Sept. 15th.

16th for me, couldn't get much closer.  I think my belly is bulging lower, but I'm not having quite so much bloating which is nice.  The second belly pic I think I was holding in my gut on accident. lol.gif  I weighed myself yesterday and I weigh the same this week as I did last week, so I haven't gained any.

These are the most unflattering shots ever, but I was just trying to get them done already. I took them last week, when I was 8 weeks. My due date is Sept 26.

Thanks for letting me whine.

Aw!  Everyone looks so cute!  And i too am jealous of the obvious greenery down there in LA!  however, i will not be envious of the heat of summer down there!  Whew!  It's bad enough up here in Wisconsin in the summer!  I would die in the south!
