Here is my week 14 shot, not quite back to the size I was 2 weeks ago, but getting there. I think what happened was that I lost the bloat (finally) and maybe a little of the belly fat after beginning prenatal yoga at 12 weeks. We checked in on baby by doppler on Friday and she/he is still in there swimming away! Dh thinks he felt movement from the outside, now. It may also be that I was growing for two in the first trimester and now my growth is much slower since only one made it.

14 weeks with #3

Kim, you need somewhere to host your belly photos so you can link to them from here. It doesn't matter where, a personal blog or an online photo album. I use Google's Picasa service (free), some use Photobucket or others. Follow the instructions for the hosting site you choose to get your belly pic up there, then copy the URL of your belly pic and click the globe with the two chain links symbol in MDC's reply window (it's under the smilie face). A smaller window will pop up and ask you for your URL which you can then paste in.

Hope that helps get you there! It's hard to know how to help since I'm not sure how much computer background you have.

Okay, I am trying this with a picture we took 3 weeks ago with my phone. Still alot of flab... I will try a current pic next. This is so fun and I am so excited to see there are others of you that have a big bump like me. I was beginning to feel weird, but I have always gotten big fast.http://http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...weeks4days.jpg

Yay, you did it Kim! I'm hearing you on the big-belly situation - it's inherited in my case and I'm on my third, so what can you do but show it off?!

Not an official belly pic, but you can still tell that I'm getting huge!

Here's one. And a close up of the painting, which makes me look smaller than I am.

Victoria that is the cutest picture ever! I love it! Your belly is adorable and I love the painting! I am going to do something spooky for Halloween like that.

Everyone is getting so big! I can't believe we're in the second trimester already. Those bellies will really start popping now!

Here is my 13 week shot:
with shirt
bare belly

Where are the bellies? I really enjoy looking at everyone's growth, but the thread seems to have slowed down a bit. Not that I'm any help as I haven't posted a single pic yet!

Do you see much of a difference? I really feel like I'm slowing down my growth!

And one of my poor tiny jammie shirt. : I'll miss it!

I've been feeling that way myself looking at all these pictures! But my first-time belly is about the same size as yours.

Expecting #2 in May 2013!

Are you short, petite, really thin, or do you have a short torso? All of my shorter friends pop out really early. It's like their torsos don't have any place to hide a baby.

No worries, you have an adorable bump! Everybody grows at different rates.

GathererGirl, I am also 15 weeks with my first and am bigger than you. I am short and short-waisted (very small distance between the bottom of my ribcage and my hipbones) so there really is nowhere for it to go but out! I'll probably post my pics here soon, maybe that'll reassure you that you're not the only one!

Okay, this is my first belly shot. It doesn't look like much. But usually my tummy is flat, so there really is a little belly there. DD is pointing to the baby.

All three. I just wonder because my bump doesn't seem to be baby at all, just flab. On another board someone told me it's all guts, so hopefully that's true.

Okay, here we go. I am 15 weeks today with my first. For a reference, I'm a 40D on top. I had a layer of flub pre-baby but am now feeling huge, despite being at -5 lbs! I am only 5'1" and short waisted so it's all going straight out. Wondering how big I will be at the end!

I'm wondering the same thing! I am already outgrowing my maternity pants and I am beginning to think I will just have to go naked within the next couple of months!!!

Hi all, updated photos for you. I'm pregnant with #3 and a pregnancy henna artist. I had some left-over henna from a BOLD event here in town and did a little 10-minute doodle on my belly. The paste is still on, so it's MUCH darker than the stain will be, but it lets you see the design.

18 weeks with #3 side view

18 weeks with #3 front view with HENNA


It's poorly executed for a professional henna artist, but I did do it on myself with no mirror! The design reflects a bit of what I'm feeling right now. There are pregnant woman all around the center circle, some are holding up the world, and others are burning in flames. Translation: you're either just barely able to do all that's needed of you or you're totally breaking down from lack of emotional or practical support. Expressing this visually with many women helped me not feel so alone and sorry for myself, and it was a tiny bit of self-pampering so that felt good too. Sigh.

As always, use the arrows at the top to scroll through past weeks of belly photos for me.
