So I've noticed a few people posting their belly pics in the Weekly Update thread. I hope it's fine to start a thread here just for that. I'm just so curious to see how everyone is growing! So post 'em here ladies!

Here's my current pic , taken yesterday at the 16 week mark. I'm quite large already! I think you can scroll through that album and see where I was at just 3 weeks ago.

Love the new belly pics.

Yeah, this isn't officially my first pregnancy. But this is my first belly, since my previous pregnancy only lasted until about 8 weeks so I never got any growth.

I ate a LOT during the worst parts of morning sickness (which was afternoon and mornings) since that was the only thing that made me feel better and able to work. :/ Also I stopped exercising and dieting as much while trying to conceive, so that also helped boost my weight up a bit, I guess. I normally try to weigh 130. But for my first doctor visit I was up to 140. And now I'm 151. Anyways, trying not to worry about it too much and just make sure I eat healthy and exercise every day.

Also I may truly be one week ahead, since I was never very good at keeping track of my cycle. Horrible, I know.

What cute bellies. I'd post mine, but you can't really tell that I'm pregnant, only fat. It does feel different, though; the baby belly is hard and very very warm, just like it's supposed to be. If you're touching my fat flap, you can tell that there's a heck of a lot of baby behind it, but if you're just looking I look plain fat. I guess it takes longer to show when there's something to show through.

You can see the belly okay... though I do have my pants pulled up and over it. I'm just not much for bare belly pictures!

I had my kids (with dh's help) paint my belly like a pumpkin this evening. There are a couple of pics from that here .

I'm loving seeing all of your bellies - keep posting them!

I could have written this post myself!! LOL Sounds JUST like me! I will take a picture of my belly later today and post it, though! But it will have to be just of the belly and no face as I will prolly use the bathroom counter to prop that camera and use the timer, so I will only be able to get the belly in it! LOL DH thinks I'm silly to take a belly shot so early! : Maybe I can get my DD to take it... She is pretty good with a camera! We will see! LOL

love_homebirthing - your pumpkin belly CRACKS ME UP! I wish mine was cute enough to do that!! But my belly is funny looking and I have a "dent" in the middle - like where my waistband has been? But I have ALWAYS had that dent! So no really cute preggy belly for me! LOL

OK... Never put a link in before, so hope I am doing this right and that it works! LOL But here is my belly! Sorry it only shows just the belly, but like I said, took it myself with it on the bathroom counter and using the timer! LOL

PS How do you put it so that it says something (like 15 week belly) and it has the link?

Hey Kerri - You go to the advanced mode and click on the icon above the text box that looks like a globe with a chain link in front of it. A box will then pop up asking you for the text (i.e. 'my belly') and then another box asking for the actual web location of the photo.

Maggie - I think your url got cropped or something. An error comes up when I click on it.

Kate,

I love your haircut! Is it hard to take care of or style? Don't suppose you have a better picture of your hair? (can you tell I'm trying to find a new hair style?)

Are you sure you mean me? Cause in the photo my hair is up in a ponytail... and I NEED to get a haircut too! I usually go for just a simple layered cut, with the bangs kinda swooped to the side, not you-know strict bangs across my forehead. I'm trying to get my hair grown out, so layers and long bangs is the way I've been going for a while.

I thought it looked like a cute bob-type cut with long bangs on the side (but with the front half pulled back into a ponytail). I've had longer hair for too long, and dh hasn't seen it down (except near the shower) in over 6 months. Kinda defeats the purpose of hair, really.

Adina - You have to remember... For me, I was "fluffy" to begin with! LOL Also, this IS my second baby and you show sooner... But I recall where you are coming from! It took us 3 years to get preggy with my DD and all I wanted was to LOOK preggy! I could not WAIT to get into those maternity clothes!! I do have to say that after trying for over 2 years for this second one, I was loving that I got bigger faster! I wanted to wear my maternity clothes again this time from day one! Ha ha I guess that's just the "curse" of having infertility! :
