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.

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???

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

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.

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...

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!

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

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
