I know we have a thread somewhere, but I thought I'd start a more recent one. Anyone know how we can make it a sticky? I'd love to see frequent updates of all of our bellies

Anyway, here's mine

21w2d

21w2d bare belly

Ok ladies.....show us those bellies

wow! I'm impressed! I see how those twins have helped make it nice and roomy in there. That's just awesome! I do understand how come so many people mistake you for carrying twins now. I don't look anywhere that big and I'll be 20 weeks on friday. I looked big yesterday and smaller today, go figure. It's kind of annoying. I do feel kicks in strange places though thanks to prior stretching. It's really weird feeling the baby move past your fundus. I never knew it was possible to stretch so much. You learn something new every day...

GSMama, where are your stretch marks?! Lucky thing! I took one belly pic last month and couldn't believe the stripes I saw. In person, I don't mind them, but in a photo they looked alarming. I will try again and see if I can get over it and also master the photo-posting technology.

Ooo, you're cute!

Here's my 19 week picture. I'll update again soon, I'm 21 weeks tomorrow! Wow, time is flying! I'm not brave enough to show off my white and now hairy belly, but I don't have any stretch marks, I was surprised. I feel like a thug in maternity pants, I'm a Wrangler girl, and these just look funny on me!

Hello ladies! I'd like to contribute a photo, but I don't know where to "attach" it to my message. How do I do this? (You can't tell I work with graphic art and computers constantly, can you?)

You put it in photobucket or something simliar (snapfish, yahoo photos) and then it will give you a url, then cut and paste it into here, or use the little globe with a chain link thing above where you type to disguise it as text

are you SURE you looked at the bare belly pic I have tons of stretch marks. They just aren't red anymore, they're that silvery, translucent color now. I don't think I'll get any new ones with this pregnancy. I didn't get any with DD, but the twins took care of that LOL. They're my badges of honor.

Yep those twins made tons of room!! I actually love it I love having this big belly and I'm glad I have it early so I can enjoy it longer. I am tired of the one person that keeps saying it's definitely twins. She thinks I have to be carrying twins because I have before. Frustrating! This is more than likely my last pregnancy, so I want to enjoy it as much as possible. I don't think this body wants to give birth to more than six LOL.

I've never posted a link before, so let's see if this works. My lumpy belly & fat arm : pic was taken at 19w2d, about 1 1/2 weeks ago.

You have a good belly baby! We all look pregnant now, it's so exciting!

Don't you hate it how side shots make your arms look? I like to wear loose long sleeves in pictures

To do the text, use the little icon thing above where you type that has a globe on it with a link under it, then highlight the text you want to turn into a link, and click on the globe, and paste your url into the popup window

Cheryl~ You look great! Cute belly IKWYM about fat arms. I dislike that about myself the most and I really hate it when they are in a picture. Too bad they are in every pic I take of my belly LOL.

That explains it! My belly ones are all new and bright purple. DH calls them confetti. Your belly looks great either way!

Thanks I guess we could hold our arms up over our heads to keep them out of the pics, but that would probably look even worse huh? When I looked at the pic on the camera my belly looked HUGE, but now that I see the pic full size, it's not so bad...It's just those arms...Thanks Grandma for dooming me to a life with fat arms

OK! I think I've mastered the technology. This is me nearing 23 weeks.

Shirted

Bare belly -- woo stretch marks! If you look closely, you can see my silvery faded ones on the left, my brilliant purple ones of course on the right. Such a work of art I am.

Laughing, because trying to do this by myself in the bathroom mirror was pretty hilarious. If I could do video instead, you'd all be rolling on the floor.

Here is a pic of SIL and me. I'm in the green. She's due in a week and a half, so I look pretty small still next to her.

Cute, cute bellies everyone!

The photo that pops up big is of two adorable little girls - I got a big kick out of that. Babies having babies?!

I see the one of you now, on the left. You and SIL both look gorgeous, and what fun to be having babies at the same time! I'm hoping my #2 will be the same age as my SIL's #1.

Yeah, people are always telling us how young we look.

Seriously, it's been so fun being pregnant together. It's great to think the cousins will be so close in age and they only live 1/2 mile from us. They'll practically be siblings. I'm really trying to stay out of the "spotlight" though, as I want her to have all the fun preggie attention, kwim?

K, I took another picture 21.5 weeks and I feel like I'm pg now. Still can't tell if I wear a sweatshirt, oh well, not sweatshirt weather for much longer!

Hey, I'm still sleeping on my tummy! I look at my belly and wonder how that is comfortable, but I still do it! Sorta propped with pillows, but still. Whoee this is fun!

Yeah, these pants are kinda funky, aren't they? And they DON"T fit either, but they fit better than anything else I have, so they work
