Seems like I only find belly pics of mamas that are skinny. : Anyone know of any places with plus sized mama pregnant belly pics or willing to share? I'll try to post mine here in a minute(if I can get my 6 year old to help take a picture!! )

Here are 2 of mine. I would have done it without a shirt, but my tummy is so saggy I'm too embarressed to post right now...maybe when it gets stretched out more I will feel more comfortable to post those kinds. This is my 6th pregnancy(I have delivered 3 children, and have had 2 miscarriages). I wear about a size 18/20 prepregnancy.

I'm about 16 weeks 5 days pregnant in these pictures:

Awww, very cute belly! I'd be too embarrassed to show mine right now. Maybe when I'm further along & it's more noticeable. I still just look fat.

I'm only 10wks along, so there's not much to see yet, but I do have some from our first pregnancy. I can't seem to get anything to attatch right now, so I'll have hubby work on it when he gets home. Let me warn you though, they are from 41+ weeks, I was wearing lycra and they will scare the heck out of any first timers!

Lizabear,

That has to be the most precious picture!!!

I will take some pics as well and post them soon.

I am 5'3" and about 190lb. I was a 14-16 when I got pregnant. I don't know if I am starting to show or if its just all the fat moving around.

That is cute Lizabear! You don't look plus size to me though! I love this thread. I have virutally NO pictures of me at this size. I am still only 6 weeks but during my last pregnancy, I didn't let anyone take pics and I regret it so much. I won't make that mistake again though. I love MDC.

Kimya, love your pix! Especially the one of you on the beach!

Yep, plus-size here to...gotta get that camera working again so I can post. I was just thinking today that all those trim pregnant bellies don't look much like mine belly with it's elephant-skin from the previous pregnancies...

Suppose I should have been taking them all along, but until about 28 weeks, I just felt kind of fat... Can you tell I'm still working on my size issues (my adult life I have been everything from a size 8 to a size 20)...

What a bunch of beautiful mamas we have on here. It is great to see so many women that are my size. I am only 6 weeks right now, so nothing to see right now. Still a few more months till I can share.

I hope it's not too late to add another photo.

DH took this the other day - I'm 19 weeks along with my 3rd child in 5 years.
Pre-Preg weight is 185lbs, current weight is 186lbs.

Big Bare Belly Photo !!

Those are my kids - Owen (~4) and Heather (~2) with me.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...l/70cba4af.jpg
This one is me about 2 1/2 weeks ago at 38 weeks 1 day, heading into the hospital to have little Luke (yeah, we have those Charlie Browns ALL over the city.. and Woodstocks, too) I am 5'6", and at the time was 244lbs... was losing weight and just got to a size 16 (from a 20) when I found out I was pregnant gained 30 lbs, and have about 5 left to get to where I was, and a LOT left after that.... Good thing is that I could wear all my *big* jeans throughout the pregnancy..lol..
