Lula's mom, it is so funny how we each grow so differently! I feel like my belly looks basketball huge compared to yours. And I am only 26 weeks.

I use a film camera, then have to scan them and download them to photobucket... so I am always waiting for a roll of film to get finished before I can share a belly pic! I'll try to share a new one soon.

Rainy, photobucket.com is free and very easy! I was lost too until some ladies here helped me figure it out.

You ladies look awesome! I'll get Shanon to take a few of me over the weekend. I don't think I look all too big, but folks ask when I'm due and look a little surprised when I say, "December" or "around Christmas." They don't really comment, but I can see the 'hmmm' in their eyes.

Oh Grace you look precious! You are definitely one of those ladies who's all up front, huh?

I haven't gained as much at this point as I did with Lula- 21 pounds vs. 31 last time at 29 weeks. I don't know why, except that carrying around a toddler all the time must burn a lot of calories. :LOL But I'm starting to feel big all over, KWIM? Sigh. 11ish weeks to go.

eta: PS- Hey did you guys see our kitchen in the background of picture 2?!? DF and I just installed granite tile on the counter and travertine on the backsplash. (I know, I'm dorky, but we're excited!) And now that the kitchen is the way we want it, we need to sell the house ASAP.

Yes, I had noticed your pretty kitchen the first time I looked at your picture... now I went back and looked at it again and the tile is very cool. I'm sure that took a lot of work!

Thank you! You know, it did take a few hours but it was not hard to do. I was surprised at how it easy it was! We took a tiling class (at the tile outlet) last year, and I just wrote down lots of notes. It was actually fun to do, and it looks much more complicated and fancy than it is.

Last night I turned to the side and said " What do you think?" and his eyes got huge.
I really didn't think I looked that big but he said he totally understands how people keep thinking I'm about due. I feel pretty good and don't feel that huge. Ok, edited. You've all inspired me to take a picture. I should probably remember this.

You guys have great pics!

My stretch marks have stretch marks. It's real bad. My belly looks like one big mass of scarred skin.

I'm gonna look through and see if I've got any good pics to post...I'll edit if I find any...

Nevermind, I'll post again.

Here's one from 2 months ago:

picture from July

And another from the same day, I look kinda goofy but it shows my belly a little better:

Another one

Keep in mind I'm just about 17 weeks in those photos. Usually you barely show then...

I'm waiting for DH to upload the more recent photos. He seems to do it in batches - urgh. I'm too lazy to try to figure out how to do it myself, but I might soon if he doesn't hurry up and update the online albums...

Thanks everybody for sharing their pictures! It's so nice to have a face to put with these names... and to see so many different shapes and sizes of pregnant women due around the same time.

I didn't post a face shot. It kinda freaks me out to put a pic of myself on the web for some reason. Not to mention when I took that one this morning I looked like hell.

I'm going to share an album - it has my head-shaving pictures (we shaved my head two days ago!) and the only publicly-viewable pregnant picture we took that day (I was only wearing underwear, no bra or anything, the pics are great but definately for family use only). You get to see my stretch-marks! And my son doing what he does ALL THE TIME (yeah, it looks cute, just wait, it gets REAL OLD when he wants to visit with the belly every 5 minutes all day long). I have some really great shots that show just how big my belly really is, but they also show just how saggy my boobs really are...and I don't know if I want to just letterbox them out and post them, since I'd still feel a little too exposed.

Here's me without my dreads. It looks kind of funny right now, but overall I am happy I cut my hair.

*Note the bags under my eyes in the last pick...I was up 'til 4 am last night. I do not normally look like that! :
