Wow, I can't believe how some ladies are popping out already!  Beautiful.   I'm so jealous!!!!  I want a baby bump, too...

 

Anyway, this is me last week, at 10w2d.  Looking back at my 6w pic, I can tell a difference.  There's a small pooch starting to poke out.

This is my 6w1d pic, to compare.  I like to think there's a difference, at least...

NIce Valerie.  Cute little belly.orngbiggrin.gif

 

Here I am at 13 weeks today. Still I can't tell until I take pics that I can see I've gotten a little bigger and I'm amazed when I see them.  This is one of the outfits my MIL bought for me.  I was modeling them for dh because he hadn't seen them yet.

Kathy, is that a skirt you're wearing or is it baggy pants? I'm a big fan of skirts when I'm pregnant. For some reason they annoy me any other time but there's nothing like having that little draft when you're smack in the middle of a hot flash, LOL. It seems to help keep things dry and well-ventilated "down there" (sorry if that was an over-share).

twins.gif  The other day I spent an hour on my hands and knees scrubbing the kitchen, dining room, and bathroom floors.  After I was done I went to the bathroom and realized I had sweat so much my underwear was soaked and so was my bra.  So, I go get fresh ones and change and dh is like, 'you ok?'  When I told him I was just sweaty then he was like, oh yeah, I guess you were working pretty hard.  LOL  Anyway, I totally get the sweaty preggo lady thing.  Last pregnancy I was changing undies at least once a day, more if I actually went out of the air conditioned home.  lol.gif

Any exertion of energy starts the perspiration motor for me. I had to shower after folding laundry. The only way I could have been doing less is if I were sleeping! LOL.

Yes, it's a skirt, I do love skirts when I'm pregnant too.  I got it from Motherhood.  I have another skirt that needs some reinforcement.  I found a pattern on the internet and made it myself for gardening last Spring.  Very comfy.  I just use my knee pads and I don't hurt my knees. Here is the skirt pattern: http://www.make-baby-stuff.com/wrap-skirt-pattern.html

 

You all are funny, I haven't had that trouble yet with soaking my underwear while I was pregnant.  Not pregnant and working hard in the garden, yes.  I will probably have that problem this year in the humid southern heat.orngbiggrin.gif

Ooh, I've been to this site before. I plan to make a few skirts for this pregnancy. I'm going to do a peasant skirt too but with the top tier in jersey knit. I'll probably try a few others as well. I'm going to need all the help I can get to stay cool this summer here in AZ if DH can't get a transfer before June.

OMG!!!  I've been wanting to make one of these skirts!!!  I have some jersey knit too I could use.  Now to figure out how to sew with jersey knit is the problem. orngtongue.gif

I've found that placing a piece of tissue or tracing paper between the jersey knit and the presser foot helps to keep the stretch minimal. Also seam interfacing should work too although I've only used it for slippery fabrics like silk.

ok, great, I do have some of that and I think I will try my walking foot as well, never tried it before, but I think I remember reading about using it with stretchy material.  Thanks for the tips.

It's amazing what a difference 3 weeks can make. Here we are at 12 weeks:

There was some change, though the pictures dont show it well. I think Im sucking it in a little on the second set of photos because I feel a bit heavy. When I relax my stomach... it looks just like I gained weight, not pregnant. I guess Ill try to take a relaxed belly picture later... I really dont like this in between just look like i gained weight and not pregnant stage.

It's not a fun stage for any of us.  hug2.gif I could still pass my big ole belly off as fat if you didn't know me before pg, or if you didn't know I was pg.  redface.gif  But you, my friend, do not look fat.  :)

I'm loving all the new pictures! Yay! Yay! Yay! Thank you all for posting them! I don't think I've changed much the last couple of weeks so I've not posted. I've still taken them, but not posted. I'll take one tomorrow though and post. I like to wait til Sunday's to take them cause at least I'll be wearing something other than sweats and a t shirt. Lol

I'm in the same boat, I'm 16(+3) with my 3rd and I barely have a pooch! Except for when I'm bloated I don't even look pregnant!greensad.gif

Alrighty, I guess I have gotten a little bigger.  I compared my 12 week pic to this one today at 14 weeks 3 days and I am getting a bigger and higher bump.  

 

k, here's 6 or 7 weeks, I can't remember which one and I'm being lazy and don't feel like matching up the dates
