I don't have anything worth showing yet, but maybe some of you do!  Please share your gorgeous belly pics!

Me neither, but the belly bump thread is my favorite part of the DDC.

lol, I'm not taking ay pics yet, I probably look 5 months pregnant already, haha!
I'm carrying extra weight from my first two pregnancies, and for some reason I carry my fat like I carry babies, so it looks like a baby belly already :(
Hoping that will help me to hide it for a while though :)

  So, yeah, that's all bloating, haha.  Only 6 weeks along.  My mother (who has a very similar build as I do) is insisting she was "showing" with her first around 6 or 7 weeks, but that CAN'T be all uterus, right?!?

Ha I will not be posting pics for a long time as I could already pass for 5 months pregnant if I don't hold it in due to being overweight and carrying it mostly in my stomach area! Hoping it will help hide the baby for longer though :innocent

So cute!! I bet is a little of both bloating and uterus. Do you look like that when you wake up in the morning? I look like that at night, but morning it goes down. I am craving a baby bump so badly!

That pic was taken in the afternoon, and yeah it's definitely more puffy in the evening.  It's not as big when I wake up, for sure, but I definitely don't look like I normally would even at waking!!

This morning at 6w3d with #2.  I feel huge!  I was 10 lbs below my prepregnancy weight before our BFP and I've only gained about a pound so yeah.  It might not all BE baby, but it sure is because of baby!

I was getting a little aggravated this morning with that layer of flab below my belly button until it occurred to me that the reason it seems to be poking out more is because it probably IS since I'm 7 weeks pregnant.  That makes me feel a little better.

I would say a combination of bloating and your organs being pushed up a bit by your uterus. Such a cute bump!

I took a picture of my baby "bloat" and tried to upload it, but when I click on the "attachment" icon it says I don't have permission to create attachments? Maybe it's not meant to be, because DH thinks I am insane to think what I have constitutes a baby bump and that other people would want to see my slight curve :eyesroll

Well, here we go.  At 8 weeks and a couple of days.  Remember though, this is baby #5 so I probably looked pregnant about a minute after getting a positive pregnancy test.  :lol

I should've taken a picture last night.  We went out to see a jazz show and I wore a somewhat fitted dress and HOLY COW did I look pregnant!  My husband was like, "uhhh, you're not really hiding anything in that dress there, sweetie..."  

 

My brother-in-law kept staring at my stomach, and commented a couple times on how I wasn't drinking.  I think he's onto us :wink

Water Mama, I'd like to help you, but I'm a bit confused because I have never posted a picture on MDC by attaching it and I also see no paperclip icon to click on. I even changed editor types in my preferences and I am just not seeing it.

The way I am able to post pictures is by clicking on the picture icon at the top of the reply box (a rectangle with mountains inside). From there, you can either choose to upload your photo from your computer to this site, or paste the link if your picture is already hosted on another site (such as Photobucket). If you need more help, I'd be happy to walk you through it by PM.

Mama to DS1 (12/07), DS2 (4/11), and DD (6/22/14)

You should be able to click "insert image"(that little icon of a landscape) and upload it that way. Unless you're mobile. Alot of the time, MDC won't let cell phones upload pics.

So I didn't think I was showing until I took a picture. Last time I took pictures every week, but I didn't write anything down with them. So this time I decided to take fewer photos, but jot down a few notes on each one.

 


Happily married to my soul mate, and a mommy of two girls + another baby due in June!

I am convinced almost anything you can see on me is gas and fecal matter.  Had a highly productive diarrhea episode after an osteopathic adjustment (TMI?) where I could have sworn I lost a couple pounds.  Got back on the table afterward and you could see my pelvic bones again.  That said I am noticing there is a new dimension to my bulge which I'm terming the "mommy pouch".  That extra triangle of space above the pubic bone and below the normally smooth line above the pubic hair line is starting bulge a bit. 

We have no idea of sex yet, but we speak in reference to "Baby Eli" and how I'm gonna make him a momma's boy.  They say sons are carried low.  We'll just have to wait and see.
