I am loving these pictures.  I probably should take some soon - at 9 weeks I'm already showing a bit, but it's mostly water weight. 

 

Dandylion - What a great idea.  That will be such a beautiful memento to have later. 

 

Earthylady - I feel the same way about having 4 kids.  ;)

Totally feeling the same about having four. This one was a birth control surprise, so we definitely weren't planning another.

Earthylady - I always wanted 5 :-)

 

BUT I am still totally in shock over this one.  Baby was not planned even though I have tried off and on for 7 years to get pregnant.  I just cant believe it is finally happening!

Great pics! Mine still looks like it's usual, no defined baby bump yet.

I'm actually looking smaller now at almost 13 weeks than I did at 10; almost like normal. (well, maybe after a really big meal) Must be the first tri bloat subsiding.

I actually look almost exactly the same as I did at 6 weeks. Tiny little bump, although I'm thinking it's the bloating going down combined with the uterus growing a bit. Not much change.

 

I'll be 12 weeks tomorrow.

Y'all look great! I'm 13 weeks but my uterus is already up to my belly button. I haven't taken any pics yet! I'm probably the only person who can really tell at this point, anyway.

From what must have been a few weeks ago to a couple days ago (14 weeks? - too tired to check properly for the other dates). 
The difference between 1, 2, and 3, is showing that most of the "bump" really was poop and air (at least for the top portion).  The last one was taken after I dressed up and realized the "slimming" black dress was actually accentuating my belly, not diminishing it. 
PS: The "medium" size seemed too big to share, but the "small" looks a little too small.  Any preference out there for how we share photos? 
PPS:  This took forever (days) for me to post.  So much for the speed of posting when you have an iPhone.  It had to go through a couple different processes just to be available here!
PPPS: If anyone has any recommendations for tracking size here, I'm interested.  I realize some of my tracking will be for naught since surviving the 1st trimester was key and took precedence.
PPPPS: For posterity, let's get a shot of what it looked like not all that long ago.  (Earlier this year.)  Not quite the side shot, but I suppose I should hold onto these since most of this is gone for good, right?

@Michelle Murphy No way--not gone for good! You can totally get your tummy flat again after baby, especially if you breastfeed. I found it sped up my metabolism so much. With exercise, it is totally do able!

I also bounced right back after three babies, and somehow got no stretchmarks! I doubt I'll be so lucky with number four. But yeah, breastfeeding helps a ton!

Yeah breastfeeding for me too also helped me get back to normal really fast. About 2 months after. I think my belly looks the same as pre-kids, my belly button did pop out so that is the only change.

Noticed today that my belly button has popped.  15 1/2 weeks with baby #5.  I'm measuring all the way to my belly button too.

Here I am at approximately 13.5 weeks. At my husband's holiday party, and in front of my fireplace at home :)

 

Still feels like it's mostly organs, though the bloating is soooo much less.

This would be the side view for 15 weeks. Yes, it's not a typo. That's actually a 1 and a 5 for 15. Yes, I get humongous when pregnant, yes I have big healthy babies, no it's not twins.   :)

You look great! And baby has lots of room to swim around wink1.gif

I finally have something I think other people can see! Please excuse my underpants. The bump mostly disappears when I stand up, so I took this in bed. I'll be 14 weeks tomorrow!
Deleted, I figured y'all would prefer a pic that doesn't feature my undies! :P
