belly shots! Let's watch each other grow!

I know that for most of us, this is waaaay premature, but... I just took my first belly shot this morning, at 8 weeks. Doesn't look any different from my normal self, but... it's always nice to track, and share, and receive...

Yay! Man, I'm so conflicted with this. I've gained a lot of weight in the past year and I don't know if I'll ever truly look pregnant. I'm afraid I'll just look heavier than I already am. It makes me sad because this is my first pregnancy and I get so jealous when I see thin women with their beautiful bumps that are ALL baby and no chub. I'm starting a natural diet and pregnancy exercise routine so maybe I'll shed some of my stomach chub. We'll see. Can't wait to see some beautiful bumps! Especially on you @jenjy and @alivewithyou !

I've gained a lot of weight in the past few years - I actually weight right now what I weighed right before I gave birth to my daughter 4.5 years ago. I lost most of the baby weight and have slowly gained it ALL back. So maybe no belly shots from me...but we will see.

I've been all bloat by the end of the day, too... gotta get the shot early in the morning, or else I'd just be faking the growth!

I'll do a belly shot next Monday (8 weeks)! I have an UGLY belly (looks like an elephants saggy butt), but that's okay. It's the cost of having my kids and I'll take my kiddo's over a tight tummy any day

I am so overweight that my belly looks 6 months pregnant even when I am not. I won't start posting photos until it is obvious that I am pregnant and not just fat, so at least 6 months from now.

My belly shots have been hilarious, because I've just magically been bloated 100% of the time since May. No idea what is up with that, but it ain't uterus, that much is certain!

5w2d. This is how I looked at 14 weeks with my first! Pants are already tight by the end of the day. Yikes.

Trying to figure out how to post my picture. I uploaded it as an attachment but it came up small. I'll have to try again. It's my 8 week pic.

Aww your teeny tiny baby bumps are so cute. I wish I could say I'm showing. But I'm a wee bit chunky. So it may be a few more weeks. But as soon as I notice I will post a pic! : )

OK so I'm on my phone. This is how I would do it. Take a screenshot of the picture I want to share so it ends up on my clipboard. Then put my finger on the screen where I'm going to write and clipboard and paste should pop up. Click clip board and select the picture. Hope that helps

In the reply section, there's that little paper clip icon for attachments... hit the button, and follow the prompts.... It's a little slow, but it'll get there!

@cowchick530 right next to the smiley icon is a little paper clip. Do you see it? That's for downloading attachments.

I don't even get a smiley icon. Haha. I am on my phone so I am seeing it on a mobile format. Maybe that is why

@cowchick530 below the box where you enter text, are you able to see a button that says "go advanced"? If so, click on it and see if the paperclip is there? I am not mothering with my phone, so I don't know.

I think you're using the mobile version, yes. Try scrolling alllllll the way down the page and hitting "DESKTOP"--you should be able to see all the bells and whistles that way!

Woo hoo! I'm really glad that did the trick, @cowchick530 . Talking through how we see websites on different browser types is so weird... I feel a bit like the blind mice describing an elephant, KWIM?

I like the desktop version way better, too.

I can't believe how much done if you are showing already! And you are so cute. I know I'm a good month behind many of you, but I'm pretty sure I won't really be showing anything until at least 12 weeks, earliest. I'm just guessing, since I'm not that skinny and I have a belly from five pregnancies already.

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

Thank you everyone for the technical help!!! let's give this a shot... So, this is at 7 weeks, in a bathing suit, at 8 a.m. If the pic were at 8pm, I'd look about 3 months along!
