Beautiful bellies!  Welcom, HannahMac!  I hope to chat with you on the discussion boards!  It's so much fun having company on this journey!  I don't have any pregnant friends IRL (except my sister, whose EDD is next Monday and who lives 6 hours from me).

Front and Side views, 20.5 weeks.  Not great shots, but as good as it gets for now.

Here's me at 19 weeks! This is my first maternity shirt (I've just been wearing my husband's t-shirts)...I put it on in the dressing room and went "Wow, I look *pregnant*!"

AveryLamb - I'm amazed you were able to go so long in your husban's shirts.  That's a good-sized belly.  smile.gif

Finally, at 20 weeks, took my *first* belly pics. smile.gif

We're doing a classic Pooh theme for Baby's stuff. smile.gif (We're both huge A.A. Milne fans!)

 

OK, mamas, do you think I look big? Be honest. This is my first -- I was pretty thin and in shape before I got pregnant, and this is all baby... my arms and legs are still the same size. My mom, who had 8, keeps telling me I'm big, there's no way I'm only having one or my dates are off, etc. What do you think?

 

And what is the deal with the non-round belly? I've always had a very defined waist, and there's still an indentation where my waistline should be. Weird.

lol! Not sure if I should be offended or amused...I'll go with amused ;) (One of my friends joked the other day, "Are you sure it's only one?" I'm sure!) He wears large or XL shirts...they just sorta hang there. This was the first shirt that actually defined my belly! I'm just glad I started looking *pregnant* and stopped looking *fat* ;)

I don't think you look *so* big. I mean, compare to my pic and BennyPai's comment ;) I'm 19 (almost 20) weeks...but I started out with a stomach. There's still sorta an indentation where my waist is too, but since the upper part of my belly sticks out more, so the shirt hides my waist, you can't really tell.

jesusfollower-- I don't think you look any bigger than I am. Then again- I'm getting comments every single freaking day now that people assume I must be ready to pop any day now-- people are ridiculous. I have a very round beach ball looking belly, but there's no WAY my belly could house a 7lb baby right now. People just don't think before they open their mouths. 

 

I don't have a defined waist, but I can still see my hipbone indentations. I'm feeling calm as long as they stay! lol.

 

I was 24 weeks yesterday, I should get DH to take a new photo today-- and my new hair!

Jesusfollower, I don't think you look big either. No bigger than I am (my first too), and I also had the non-round belly for a long time. Now that my fundus has moved above my belly button, it's looking more round--especially after I eat! And your mother is probably just used to seeing the flat-tummied, non-pregnant you, so it's surprising to her. Don't worry! Your body is exactly the size it should be to make the baby it's making!

Jesusfollower-- My belly was waaaay bigger than that with my first, and this time around way way way bigger.  People love to make comments on size... I think you're perfect :).

Ok ladies, (forgive the head cutoff, I was working with my webcam, there is a limited field of view. :P)

 

22 weeks, 5th pregnancy (expected to term)  fundal height = 32  Also, because I like to counter the belief that breastfeeding ALWAYS leads to terribly shrunken/saggy breasts.... I caved and wore a fitted tank top.

 

Now, I'm SOOO not 'skinny' to start with so there are lots of curves for baby to hide in.

Aww- thank you! I've only just learned to be ok with my body.  I was raised by a mom who was great about body image- but the rest of my family was very big on making everyone feel like your body is not ok unless you are a size two.  Obviously, that's NEVER going to be me, but I figure it works the way it's supposed to.

24 weeks and feeling huge! I'm up about 18lbs, which means I'll probably go over the 30lbs I wanted to limit myself too, but so far it's all boobs and belly, so I can't complain. I do need to start walking again and toning my bum and thighs. I've been such a bump on a log and you can tell my muscles are disappearing!

We look pregnant! Oh, this is so fun!

 

Here are mine, 22 weeks:

22 weeks shirt.jpg

I finally actually bought jeans. Oh my, how wonderful. I'm not constantly pulling them up!!

 

I don't think I've noticed it on any of you mamas, but my face is so chunky. Gosh, I hate that. I look like I've gained 50 pounds in the face. Yuck. Meanwhile, my arms and legs are the same (where I usually notice fat gain), and I've gained 15 pounds, so...maybe I'll think wishfully and say it's water retention? Does drinking more water help? Seriously do not like.

I LOVE the mama's eye view pic! That's so cute! It's so strange for me to look at what my belly looks like now vs. what it looked like when I was pregnant with DD. With DD, my belly went straight out and was almost perfectly round. This time around, my belly seems to be angled downward a little bit. I think it's because LO is always sitting so low, whereas DD was always pretty high up until the end. Speaking of which, I can feel my bladder getting kicked and poked as I type.

Oh- the bladder trampoline!  That is happening with me almost constantly this time.  I think that with subsequent pregnancies there's more room for them to bounce downward.  I know I've already been dealing with SPD for a few weeks and I haven't been able to sleep all night without having to get up to pee since before the pink line showed up. *sigh*

 

I think that since I am now at the Grand Multiparity point, my pelvis has been stretched enough that the baby is simply lower down most of the time.  It's not a bad thing, it's just different- like my body is so used to what will happen that it skipped over the 'early' stage to the 'late' stage.

I'm around 22 weeks pregnant with a little girl. This is my first pregnancy. (:

 

22 weeks.

 

But I'm worried. My friends keep telling me my belly is small for being 22 weeks along. :/
