~~*January Belly Thread! *~~

So I will start us off even though this is the first pregnancy where I am beginning the process feeling self-conscious about my body. I have never been overweight when falling pregnant, so this is new for me. I am 13 lbs. over a healthy BMI, mostly due to the friged winter in MA and my PP eating habits...

 

Okay, I'll stop making excuses and delaying :) On my fourth bub, I do pop really fast because my muscles are all stretched out, so I expect to look pregnant in a few weeks.  I hope!

I'm kind of surprised no one else has posted a before pic! Don't leave me hangin' ladies! (no pun intended, lol) I am tempted to post another one where I'm not bloated. Happy Mother's Day All!

You're brave and I hate to leave you hanging all by yourself :)

i want to do a weekly picture, I'm just shy of 6 weeks so maybe we'll start at 6 weeks. Depending on how brave I'm feeling I may post it, or I may wait until I'm actually showing, because right now it's bloat and a little extra padding.

Yay!!! This thread was absolute fav from my March 2013 DDC. I checked in every day to see how all our bodies were growing. I am trying to embrace and accept my body for its imperfections and look forward to being able to let it hang out soon without reservations...I do still tuck in my tummy in public a little bit, but with so much bloat it is getting tiring. If people think I am fat, so be it. I am a little bit. But mostly my gut is bloat!

Okay I am almost 5 weeks and couldn't resist:  my sucking-in-tummy-(like in public)-before photo. Next to my early-morning-pooch-that-will-not-go-away- already photo. K, from here on out I will only post once a week, lol.

Here is my 4 week 1 day belly pic. Considering this is my 5th babe, I bet my days are severely limited before my belly takes on a roundish shape. :love

LOL, Rosie, yup, my belly is now looking quite similar! And I was easily able to pull in my flabby tum before I got pg, now, no way Jose. It sticks right out there. I think even though there isn't much uterus yet that your bump is super cute!! A bump is a bump when it is *because* of baby, even if there isn't much baby in it yet :) .

Exactly six weeks by the calendar. With a toddler on my back! Lately that has been part of the nap routine... Should get interesting. I can feel the poochy pouch will be a thing sooner rather than later wink1.gif

I want to post one. I have been wanting to for a while. Just need to get around to it. Husband said he would take a pic. So here's hoping. I am on an iPhone. Anyone else get really distorted looking pics on this section? Luckily I can click and they look normal.

Other ddc 's are able to post thumbnail picks but I haven't figured out how to do it. Anyone want to try to figure it out?

So I just copied and pasted this image and it worked.... I know I can copy paste on iPhone but not sure it would work, I'm using a desktop right now.

I just tried to copy and paste as well. It worked with the photo from this page but it wouldn't allow me to copy and paste from my pictures folder on my computer :frown:

Wow, writermama12, I just took a peek and you're really showing! I'm kind of jealous - I can't wait for an unambiguous baby belly. Right now I just kind of look like I've been eating too much ice cream. This is my first, though, so I expect it won't be obvious for another few weeks yet.

Lila, We won't be able to attach pictures until w are switched to a forum. Who know when they'll get to us.


Ajoye, I am still unsure if in public I look pregnant or just chubby with a beer gut, lol. Glad you see it though.

I'm so excited to be on the forum view, that I'm going to attempt to attach a picture, even though it's a terrible iphone photo. Here goes!
I feel like I look way more pregnant than it shows in this picture. I'm trying to hold my shirt tight against my belly so you can see, but I don't see a belly here. Weird! I must be much less bloated today than yesterday. I'm 13 weeks.

I may post an updated picture but there isn't much to see right now. I just look like I've been eating too much
