I like the idea of having one thread to post all the belly photos.  With my last pregnancy I took a picture almost every week  (CLICK HERE TO SEE MY LAST PICS).  While I'm not sure that I will take a picture every week this time, I'm going to try to keep up with it as much as possible. 

 

Feel free to post your belly pics and we can all share our growing bellies!

 

6w4d - My stomach started out flat, so I'm feeling HUGE already!

My turn!!! I'm 7w5d. Pre-baby weight: 145. Current: 155. =( I give partial blame to the fact that I quit smoking when I found out I was pregnant and quitting smoking always = Weight gain.

 

Notice my little pudge? LOL

 

I've also gone up a cup size in my bra. 36D to a 38DD. =( DH loves it. I say, "OW!!!". I finally bought a bra that fits last night and it's wonderful.

 

And yes, I know I'm totally tatted up. I hope, hope, hope they don't get too destroyed with the pregnancy. LOL My mama doesn't have any stretch marks, so let's hope I'm just as lucky. *Crosses fingers*

TTCChloeOrConner~ Your tattoos will get big but go back to normal after baby. I have one tattoo on my stomach that has gone through two pregnancies, where i was all baby.

 

 

I'm going to wait til I'm  11wks after my first visit to take a picture. I have some fluff from previous babies even though I'm starting at roughly the same weight, if i don't suck my stomach in i look hugely pregnant.

I never really tracked week to week but I plan on doing it this time. Maybe every two weeks. Here is me at 36 weeks with my son in 2006.

FWIW, I'm heavily tattooed and mine didn't change during or after pregnancy (not even my tummy tattoos)

I had to look up Trailer Park Boys, I've never heard of it! I guess it's exclusive to Canada. Sounds funny.

There is nothing in life funnier than Trailer Park Boys. I highly suggest downloading.. That is if you aren't easily offended, because the language is vile and the subjects matter is.... well.. trash TV at it's finest ;)

5w4d.  My belly is actually sticking out under my belly button - had to switch to looser pants as my tight jeans cut in too much.  I think I'm going to show early this time around!

GenomicsGirl- you look AWESOME!

 

I'm still irked. I too was still losing. I was 10 lb under my prepregnancy weight, fitting into size 1 jeans with no muffin top and frickin' PROUD of it.. Thennnnn.. BFP. LOL

 

Let's hope I A) Don't gain 50 pounds with this one like I did with my DD

and B) It doesn't take me 12+ months to take it off again

 

I've actually lost 3 pounds in this pregnancy so far- last time by 8 weeks, I'd gained 7. hahah

Thank you blush.gif I'm not normally one to publish photos this early. My family still doesn't know. 

 

I'm not sure how to tell them ...

I feel HUGE compared to all of you! This is my second and I'm pretty sure my ab muscles never came back together...not sure exactly where my fundus is b/c my c-section scar makes it hard to tell, but I think it's about even with it. I've actually even lost 5 lbs! :/

Adorable belly!
 

I've felt dorkish taking pictures this early on, but I'm 8wks 1day now, and it's probably okay  :) I'll take on tomorrow morning and post.

 

I have yet to tell the majority of my family as well, some may not be so supportive .. have to tell them before or at Easter, since I'll be 11 weeks and most certaintly showing .. I went to a family party over the weekend and wore a loose-fitting dress, but my tumm was definitely rounded and you could see I'd gained a little weight, so I'm sure people were wondering and tongues were possibly waggin'...

Ok, here's my questionable bump. I'm certainly not showing, but the area between my hips is usually flat. My fundus is already above my pubic bone. (Having an u/s to check for twins/double check dates on Friday, because everything is NOT adding up)

 

Don't mind my pyjamas. LOL

I'm with you! I have a bump down there, but it's really just pushing my fat out further than it already was. biglaugh.gif

 

I'll post some pics when it is an obvious baby belly and not just my fat, stretch marked belly.

6 weeks today : ) I'm really excited to add a picture, we didn't take any progression pictures last go around-  however it was super hard to get this one because 2yo DS sees a belly and goes into tickle mode :P  I don't think much of it is baby as I am feeling quite bloated.

Oh I'm with you on this, for sure!  Once I have a big enough baby in there that it makes the flab leftover from the 4 year old less apparent I will be posting pictures.  In the meantime, all you beautiful mamas rock on with your confident selves!
