Awww. I wish mine looked so cute, Kelsey! It's just all pudgy bloat..haha. Also, happy belated b-day! Hope you had a good one!


Can't wait to see more pics. I need to get some taken soon. I'm definetly alot more bloated earlier on than I was w/DS :)

montessorimama1 06-13-2011 11:44 PM

@ montessorimama1- Sooo Cute of a bumb. :)

Kelsey and montessorimama, so cute! So happy for you both!  I just look bloated and/or pudgy :-)

danamichele 06-14-2011 06:18 PM

Soooo cute! 


I'm jealous.  This is my second and I was hoping to show earlier. I'm feeling plenty pudgy, but I don't think it's necessarily due to pregnancy.  :/ (Bad timing to gain weight, right before the BFP.)  Soon enough I shall have my bump, too, I guess.

Oh dear..I'm too embarrassed to post. I'm almost 3 months now..I was pudgy before though (I was on a diet..and then poof..bean happened) and now I just feel like a mack truck. Y'alls bellies are so cute though!

I'm pretty sure mine is still bloat :)

kismetbaby 06-21-2011 08:54 PM

Nice pics Sweet. Bee!!!! I love the way you have edited them. ..wish I had the time to do that! What software are you using?


So, I took some pics today at 9wks and 4 days and it looks like I may be in denial that I can keep this pg to myself till the 12wk u/s! LOL!  I think I have a belly already! Eek. .. I'm sure 50% is bloat/fat, but still, I didn't look like this till 14 wks with my son as I recall.  Kinda fun to have a belly, but awkward when keeping the pg a secret.  hmmmm


btw--how do you post the pic so it shows up in the thread instead of as a link???

Sweet.Bee 06-22-2011 12:16 AM

kismet, they didn't really take too long to make; what took time was deciding what I wanted to do in terms of editing. winky.gif I use photoshop, though something like iPhoto would probably do the same and be more user friendly.


Other things I keep in mind for photos:

- Use natural light (a room with indirect sun that's streaming in through the window works well; direct sunlight may blow out your skin, esp. if you are ghostly pale as I am).

- Use an uninteresting background (like a plain wall).

- Take a lot of photos to ensure you get a good one (advantage of digital).


Most of you probably already know this, but I thought I'd share in case someone has no idea where to start when taking belly pics. innocent.gif

Thanks for the tips, sweetbee!

Devaskyla 06-26-2011 12:24 AM

Sadly, I just look fat and will for at least a couple more months. Looking forward to seeing more pics of everyone, though! I love seeing baby bellies.

montessorimama1 06-26-2011 06:39 AM

So i had this cute little rounded bump, and then it got all weird and now my stomach is popping out almost more than my belly and i look deformed, like a propane tank. Super sexy (not!), just in time to meet up with DH... sigh...

use the little image button (a little more than halfway over on the right hand side, next to the button that looks like film)

13 weeks! I went from flat to this in what felt like overnight! I was all bloated for weeks and then that went away and the belly appeared! 

Sweet.Bee 07-05-2011 05:57 AM

12 weeks:



I feel like the bump is growing faster this time around.

BeanSprout Mama 07-05-2011 12:49 PM

I haven't taken any belly pics yet.  I never do until around 20 weeks. I am plus size anyway so even though I can see a difference in my belly despite having lost 10 pounds I know that to the rest of the world it just looks like I'm getting fatter.


You all look fantastic!

bentlaj11 07-06-2011 11:39 AM

13 wk picture. The bloat never went away, so I decided it was time to start taking pictures! Sorry it's a little blurry! I look as far along as I did at 18 wks w/DS.

Hey, I can join you ladies!  My belly kind of popped out of nowhere!  I am a little over 13 weeks--first baby.  Some of it is definitely bloating, but my uterus is definitely up out of my pelvis and palpable.  Very, very cool. love.gif

Ah!  Such cute bellies!!  I can finally post my updated one @ 14w2d, baby #1.  DH swears there are two babies in there... (sorry if they're a little blurry, my camera sucks)...

Such pretty bellies!! love.gif

lactatinggirl 07-17-2011 07:32 AM

I can't get them all to post here, but I have a series of pregnancy photos on my blog because I've been posting (mostly) weekly on pregnancy topics. Here's the list of my pregnancy posts and there are pictures in them. Sadly, I missed weeks 7-9 and I think it was somewhere in there where my belly turned from bloating to actual baby (or mostly organs). :-P
