Come on ladies, I know I'm not the ONLY one who has already taken belly pics. I'm terrified of how big I already am, by the way. I'm already back in maternity pants!!!
So when do we get to start a belly pic thread???

You first!:

Kidding....I would post a belly pic if I knew how to post pics online. If anyone can tell me how, I'll get busy.

I don't really have much belly. Just kinda leftover softness and some bloatage.

LOL, I took one the other night...under the full moon! I plan to take one each month on the full moon, since I'm not really interested in days/dates this time.

Christi2705, I have 33 pounds of leftover from ds! : I lost five pounds when he was born...that's it! And I'm one of the lucky ones that keeps an extra layer (or two!) of maternal fat when I'm nursing! So, I'm starting this pregnancy the heaviest I've ever been! I'm hoping this baby feeds off that for a good couple months...

I'm not sure how to either...I think a host has to start a different thread for that...we'll see!! I got big really quick, but it's all bloat. But it sure is poking out there! My doctor warned me that this would happen, that I would show quickly, because with my last pregnancy I showed super quick. I lost her at 16 weeks, just a few months ago, so he said my body would go back to pregnancy mode pretty quick since my muscles are already a little stretched. Oy vey...

Well hopefully your gain won't be much...just enough to be healthy
I am 11 lbs below my pre-preg wt now, but I still have a "c-section belly"!

No belly pics from me yet. I'm a bit overweight so already have a bigger tummy than what I wanted at this stage of the game.

You can google video and find a cool video where a couple took pictures every day of the pregnancy and put them together. Very cool.

I hear you, Monkey Princess. My sister got very thin while bf, but not me. Bearly lost anything.

My plan this time around is to only gain 15-20 pounds. I much more motivated to eat healthy. For me, it's about not snacking after supper and portion control.

Um, I guess you'll have to copy and paste...I don't know how to make it clickable.

Is there any way we can make this thread sticky. i was looking at the other month clubs and they seem to have alot of belly pics. the only thing i noticed is that they only have pics of when they are in second trimester and above. i think we gals need to start posting now so that when we look back we can see the difference between everyone.

OK i personally recommend using photobucket.com.

Once you are there, if you dont have an account setup already, do so.

There should an image upload box. upload all the pictures you want.

If you scroll down, the images you uploaded are shown.

Check the box under the pic (only one at a time) and click generate HTMLand IMG code.

It will then give you a bunch of codes. i tried all of them to see how they came out and you are better off using the one that says "IMG clickable thumbnails for message boards"

Copy and past it into the thread you are creating... and TADAAAA.

Do these steps for every picture you would like to add.

NOTE: when you are at the page that shows the different codes, do not click on the back button to get to the main page. There should be a link next to where it say s"current album". click on that instead.

HOPE I MADE THIS DUUUURRRR PROOF.

BTW-I still haven't introed myself on Rollcall, bc I am still in denial...but two tests have been +. And MS is killing me:

Ok, I just showed it to DH and now he wants to do this. Anyone know how? He says that you would have to have a camera sitting there for 9 + months without moving it. I'm not too sure if that will happen with a 3.5 yo around. Any ideas? Anyone?

to do the photo thing I think you would just take a photo each week in the same exact spot, you may even have to mark it on the wall to have it be precise and then you could do a slideshow with the time between photos be extremely short, I would actually have it run slower I thought it was too fast

We took one last night (4w0d) and I plan to take one every Monday evening. I took belly shots with my last PG and I want to see how the second one differs from the first. But, my camera is playing with me, so the pics are still on there.

This is me at 6 weeks, 3 days.

I'm wearing the skirt that I will live in for the next 8 months. It's a wrap-around and I wore it right up till the end with my last pregnancy!

AirForceMelly, I *think* you made posting pictures "dur-proof," so for that I must say !

When my sister and mom saw the first picture, they were shocked and both yelled at the same time, "You popped!"

Here's 5 weeks and 3 days:

http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m...2/c315ade9.jpg


And here's one from yesterday, 6 weeks and 3 days:
