I know it's too early and we're not showing yet, but it might be fun to get the pictures started so that we can compare in the later weeks how much our bellies are growing!  I know I'm excited to see that little bump start coming up!!

 

Here's me at roughly 4 weeks.  I took it today.

Thanks for starting this Amy Lynn! I didn't start documenting my belly until about 16 weeks last time, and I wished I had sooner! It's fun to see the progress. Here's mine from this morning. It may look like I'm starting to show, but it's really just my little buddha belly left over from my DS wink1.gif

Just for fun, here are my BFP's. The FRER was at 3 weeks 3 days (in the AM). 

 

Here is me at 4 weeks. Ignore the weird face. LOL! While I wasn't s skinny minnie before getting pregnant, I have definitely got some bloat going on here.... enough that people had already started guessing that I was pregnant by this time dizzy.gif Tomorrow I will be 5 weeks so I'll do another picture (I will try to do weekly pics). 01eadc6d_100_6331.jpg

Steph - Very smart to hold the sign to remember when the picture took place!  Love all the HPTs - I took a ton, too.  I've included a pic of mine, in chronological order from left to right (the FRER was my first BFP at 15dpo on 1/18).  And here's a pic from last week, when I was 6w2d.  A little bloating, but nothing major yet.

LOVE love love all the pics! Now I have to go take a belly shot. I'm notorious for taking a ton! Once a week at least. :D

Both of these pictures were taken today, at 5 weeks. Needless to say, I did not get smaller. And I'm getting a little worried that there might be more than 1 in there because DANG, I should not be that big at only 5 weeks. LOL! While I did manage to get the jeans buttoned, they were horribly uncomfortable during my exam. When I got home I was thrilled to see that my Bella Band came today! Now I can happily wear my jeans (and work pants) again, no pain!

Of course you can post! This isn't called the skinny belly thread- it's the beautiful belly thread and I have no doubt that all of our bellies are beautiful! They are all housing a little miracle that is happening.... That makes them all beautiful smile.gif

I should have taken a picture at 5 when I first found out! Im about 7 now and definitely starting to protrude. I already had to ditch all my jeans! :( Goddess bless store with cheap yoga pants. They're everywhere these days. Oh, and Leggings! Yeah my belly has a new profile for sure!

4-5 weeks here! You all look beautiful by the way! I love a preggy belly! I want to take a picture every couple of weeks this time for sure! Last time, I only took a few the whole time.

Amy, your belly is adorable! 

 

Did you guys see this link in the "I'm pregnant" forum? 

If you click on it, you can select your week and then look at pictures of other women at the same pregnancy stage. Awesome, the differences between the belly sizes!

Ok, here goes. I'm 5 weeks 3 days today. I feel huge compared to where I was with DD at this point!  Believe me when I say the thought of two in there has also crossed my mind... especially because I was on clomid. Symptoms also hit much sooner. Maybe just a 2nd child thing?! Had jeans on this morning but they had to be switched to yoga pants this afternoon.

This is what I've looked like since 3 weeks, but I'm pretty sure mine's just bloating from eating more fiber again. Some morning's I"m flat, other I look bigger than this! I'm 7 weeks today. No pics yet. I think I'm a start documenting today though :-)

I thought this might be fun to share- these are from my pregnancy with ds. Sorry for the picture quality (it's a picture of polaroids! LOL!). I think I have them in the right order.

And I went 2 more weeks before ds was born! I didn't take any more pictures though.... must have been too depressed at how big I was. LOL!

 

I can't believe I'm as big, if not bigger, now than I was at 16 weeks last time! Yikes!

No sign of a belly yet but this is my second so I anticipate to start showing around 12 weeks this time around.  With my first it was 14 weeks.  I have a very short torso so I tend to show early.

8 weeks.  Not sure if it is belly or gas.  :/

6 weeks.jpg

 

Here I am at 6 weeks today. I remember pulling out the waist of my "loose" jeans (you know, the ones I have to pull up every 30 minutes because they are sagging down) 2 weeks ago and thinking "I have plenty of room, these jeans will last a while!".  2 weeks later and there is no gap between my belly and the jeans. And I just now realized that I didn't have to pull those jeans up not once today bigeyes.gif

Six weeks and two days here! I feel like I got a little bump TODAY. Went to my first OBGYN appointment. She said my uterus felt just right for 6 to 8 weeks.

DH was making me crack up when he took the picture lol.gif I think some of my bloating might have gone down. Woo! Maybe it's just wishful thinking though, who knows.
