I decided to go ahead and start up the "official thread," since some of us have already started taking our belly pics!

So ladies, please come share your beautiful bellies!

All I have so far is my 8 week picture... (which I already posted in last week's chat thread.) I will post my 10 week picture at the end of this week.

8 weeks

Bloated tummy or quadruplets? Only time will tell.

(ETA This link points to a later pic now)

Thank you so much! It's the luna moth. They are my favorite. I just got this tattoo this past winter because I really wanted it before I got pregnant. I like to think of the big moth at the top sitting on my belly and protecting/watching over the baby.

I am not showing yet. I am 7 weeks 2 days and this is my second. Should I be concerned? I mean I was a little over weight any way befor I got preg but I wasn't to big. By the way you all have very pretty tummys.

No you shouldn't be worried. Everyone shows differently. I am just 7 weeks now, and even though my tummy is a little thicker, I don't have a bump. With my second I did start showing right away though. And with my first I didn't show until about 5 months. Each pregnancy and each woman is different. It is hard somtimes though, you want that beautiful bump, but remember at 37 weeks, you will be not wanting that bump anymore. So know, it will happen soon, and probably all of a sudden.
I also suffered servely from heartburn with my second pregnancy. I wish you luck. It wasn't fun, if I remember what I did to help it I will tell you, but I can't remember now

Nope, shouldn't be concerned at all. It's amazing how much variety there is between mamas! I had no idea until this pregnancy. It's really cool to see how different these beautiful pregnant bellies look, regardless of the shape, size, or how far along we are. Here is a cool website that I stole out of November's DDC that shows expectant mamas from 4 weeks on up to 42 weeks.

Thanks for sharing, Astromom! I can't believe some of those women who were barely showing at 20 weeks! Sure puts things into perspective for those of us doing this for the first time!

I love seeing these pictures! I'm 6 weeks along and cannot believe how my belly is popping out! I feel like I have to make sure people know I haven't gained a pound! So silly. Your bellies are so cute!!

I guess I need to take a pic and add it huh?

Hi, I'm so happy to be joining a belly photo club!! I've been waiting for years to do this, I'm so happy to be pg!!!

Here I am at 5 weeks 2 days, the beginning of my pg!!! I'm already a little bloated.
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1.../Belly5w2d.jpg

Here I am at 8 weeks 0 days, feeling very bloated and constipated. I'm taking progesterone pills 3x a day, and it feels like my upper tummy is constantly full of air!! I'm already eating tea soaked prunes for relief
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...elly8weeks.jpg

Here I am at 9 weeks 0 days. I'm about the same, just more bloated in the upper tummy.
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...elly9weeks.jpg

Here I am at 10 weeks 0 days. My lower tummy is sticking out a little more!!!
