This is my 12 week pic.  I want to take all the pics in this same (maybe not the jeans) outfit then make a flip book after.LL

This is at 13 weeks.  The start of a little bump maybe???  I take my pics on thurs before I go to work because that is when I flip my week, so I'll probably post my new one tomorrow morning when I get home.  Hopefully I won't be alone on this thread by then. ;)

I think it will be fun to see us all grow, at the same time all across the world.  It's pretty cool.

Oh I will join in on this for sure. I have pics of all my pregnancies (usually from 20 wks on). This time around I have lost so much weight going in (because of gallstones) that my bump is super noticeable. In fact there are many people we haven't told (like my parents - long story) who keep looking but are afraid to say anything because of our loss last year.

I'll be back with a picture soon :)

I have no photos of myself pre-pregnancy (at least, not in the last YEAR... oops) but I started out at 5'7", 108lbs, and have now made it to this, at 11-12 weeks (I'm now 14w) :


This was evening bloat back then, but I'm now about this size during the day, and getting even bigger into the evening.
For comparison, here's me at about 20 weeks in my first pregnancy:

 

Apparently I'm one who gets bigger, faster the second time around.

Nice bumps, everyone! Nolamama, I can definitely see a little difference in the second photo. Tspencer, you do not look "on the heavy side" to me! Well, or I'm in denial, because I think we're about the same size from that photo. I'm definitely still feeling just chunky (all my weight always goes to my stomach anyway), but if I suck in it looks a little more bump-like. I jsut don't remember if that's what it looks like when I'm not pregnant, too.

This is my 14 week pic.  Feeling like my belly is really starting to get much bigger but still more chunky than preggers.

Tspencer,  I certainly see you looking preg, not overweight.  And I love the photo bomb, little kids are awesome for that lol.  Jellopanda, you're so tiny that any bump is going to be super obvious and adorable.

 

Glad I didn't end up alone on this thread.  It'll be fun to see all the bellies get huge.

Thanks mamas innocent.gif!  I just feel so huge (not in a pregnant way) but I can't suck it in anymore. lol  

 

Nolamama- You do not look chunky at all, there is no question you are pregnant! And there is an even bigger difference from 13 to 14 weeks! 

 

Jellopanda- You are showing much faster this time! I am showing much faster with this one too. You probably started showing right away though! 

 

Very cute bumps mamas!

17 weeks (-4.5 lbs). Not really a real bump yet, just the 35 lbs left over from my first. orngtongue.gif

Next time I promise no boob-side-shots. SORRY. 

I'm kind of wondering if there's even a real baby in there? shrug.gif

Even though I've seen her.

 

Compared to my first, below, at 20 weeks (+20lbs),

I think you look great in both! I don't have much of a bump, either, just sort of spare tire. The only way I know it's bump is I can't button most of my pants any more. 18 weeks here.

 

If that's an extra 35 lbs, you must have been teeny tiny before!

Oh, you flatter me! I was not 'that' small I just carry weight all down in my legs and butt. I am still in my this time around pre-pregnancy pants and VERY surprised I still haven't gained a pound. I started at 181 this time and I was 145 last time at 5'4". I'm not very far behind you, I'm due the last weekish of January.

Just had to share this one too. Last week my little sis was visiting and was telling my kids that she too was pregnant and the baby's name is 'cheese'. Here she is with her cheese bump in competition with my baby bump :) and making me laugh ridiculously!
