Thanks so much Renee. I think part of it is the books I'm reading. I need to get some new books.

Also I think part of it is me not being around a lot of pregnant women before, and also this whole size and shape being so new to me. It's really different when all the pants start falling down and 1st and 2nd trimester under-belly pants start getting not so comfy on my tummy. I need to remain positive and have faith that my body will work as intended.

I was just gonna agree with Renee. You look fabulous, and fwiw, my belly got huge with both my girls. They were a bit bigger than what some women have (8lb8oz & 9lb8oz) but they fit through me just fine. And I have a petite build and am only 5'3 1/2". So please don't worry. If you need book recs, let me know. Stay far far away from the What to Expect variety. They should rename those, How to Scare the Crap out of Expecting Mothers and/or How to be a Compliant OB Patient. Your body will grow a baby it can fit.

Here's my belly after getting henna done at a Blessingway. I'm 27 weeks & 4 days in it. I've always thought that the stretch marks surrounding my belly button resembled the rays of the sun, so I think it's appropriate.

Stayathomemommy - A blessingway is sort of like a shower for the mother-to-be. It's a traditional Navajo ceremony done to celebrate a woman's transition into motherhood. Her girl friends form a circle of support and do various ceremonial rituals (blessing the home with sage, creating a birthing necklace for her to wear, speaking words of support, etc.). You can google blessingway for more info.

mom_2_two - Just register for a free account at any one of the many photo hosting websites (I'm using photos.yahoo.com but you could use any number of them - photobucket.com is another). Then upload your pictures there and paste in a link to the picture once you've done that here.

Everyone looks great! Love the Henna! I've thought about doing it and getting a yin and yang design just, well, because

So, I finally got DH to take a picture. It's in my pajamas and seconds before I crawled into bed, so...obligatory caveat given. 28 weeks and a couple of days, I think.

It's been too hectic to get dh to take any decent belly pics of me (I wanted one on my 28 week mark but we missed it entirely) so I took a couple of myself yesterday in the mirror at exactly 29 weeks. Here they are. Sorry, they're a little blurry.

Here I am at 27 weeks. I am now 30 so I'll try and get another picture soon.

I am actually getting pictures done on Thursday but I'm not sure when I'll be getting them back. A friend of mine is trying to start a photography business and wants to use me for her portfolio so I'm sure the pictures will be nice!!

(I hope I'm doing this right...)

There are two photos there, check them out!

Nope, but my guess is a boy & a girl. If not that, then 2 girls. The shocker would be 2 boys (we have 2 girls so far). You have a super cute belly!

Adorable bellies everyone! I wish I could share some pics but our digital camera is broken I haven't taken any belly pics since about 25 weeks. I'm only 31 1/2 weeks and my maternity shirts are starting to get short and my maternity granny pants panels are starting to get short! Yikes, this didn't happen until I was close to my EDD with my dd! No clue what I'm going to wear in the last few weeks...my bathrobe I guess?? I'm only measuring 2 weeks ahead and haven't gained any weight...I guess its just cause he's sticking straight out LOL!
