I know it's early, but I thought I'd get the ball rolling! I'm planning to take then every three or four weeks so I can really see when the growth happens. These are 4w5d, with shirt and bare belly.

The last set were 4w, now here's 5w:
Shirt down.
Shirt up.

I'm going to have a 25lb baby, I swear.

Come on ladies, someone else must have started taking belly shots!

Great pics!

Every time I see your post I keep remembering to pull out the camera this time around. Have I done it yet? NO! Need to do that! When I get them I will post them too.

I will be neat to see everyone's changing momma figures. Thanks for getting us started!

You guys are so cute! I took them early last time as I was showing so soon (this was back in april) but I don't think I'll show as soon this time.
I showed with dd at like 11 weeks, and this last time I think I was only 6-7.

eta: speaking of belly pics...do you suck it in for the pick or let it hang? I took one just now sucking it in and figured I might keep doing it that way because of the loose skin (which I don't usually have, but i did just lose a baby two months ago!)

eta(again) Here I am at 4w+2, so I have a reference point:

I just stand up straight. I'm a dancer, so I have really good posture. Standing nice and straight sucks in the fat but doesn't pull in whatever baby might be showing. I think it's obvious from ym second set of pics that my belly is all baby at the moment. :

any new bellies? Come on girls, i love seeing tummies!

here is 5 weeks even, I've already grown a bit from the last pic! I love that I tend to show early. I'm betting I'll have a bump again by 8-9 weeks.

Jill, you are already starting to show. How fun! Seeing the paneling on the wall behind you in the pic gave me an idea. It would be fun to mark the spot on the floor where you stand and each week you could see how much your tummy is growing closer to the line on the wall. Does that make sense? Just an idea. I don't know if it would really work!

I plan on taking my pic again in a couple of days so it's the same time each week.

Just as an FYI, don't look for my belly pic any time soon. All you skinny mamas do nothing for my confidence!

Allrighty then, here I am at 6 weeks and I can't believe the growth! I can't button any of my jeans without discomfort.

I hadn't told all my friends yet. I was planning on waiting to tell everyone. But tonight at my Women's group one of my friends noticed my bump! I guess there's no hiding it anymore! It seems awfully early!

Nichole - I love belly shots. And even if you dont feel comfortable posting them, take some just for yourself You'll love looking back at them. I regret not taking more when i was pregnant with my son.

That being said, i think everyone should post, dont be afraid to post because you carry some extra weight or you have stretchmarks or anything like that! I personally think every woman is beautiful and hope that you all feel comfortable to share your pics with us

Doulanichole, LOL about the popped out belly! I know, I was thinking the same thing!

My family is scaring me all thinking I'm having twins. My Grandma (Mom's mom) had twins with her 4th pregnancy (this is my 4th) and at exactly my age too. Yikes!

But I'm not complaining about the shopping! I just got home from the mall. Actually with all the new babydoll style shirts that are out it's quite easy to find maternity tops even in the junior sections for great deals. I bought 3 juniors tops tonight at JC Pennys and some stretchy leggings and spent less than $50 total! So much shopping fun!

Wow, you guys all have the cutest bellies. I've always had a belly even when not pregnant so mine doesn't really look all that exciting to me, lol. It just feels like regular old weight gain.

I took some belly pics of myself and I couldn't get the light right and was frustrated so I asked dh to take some for me (we're photographers). He actually did a good job. I even got him to get in some pics with me so we have a progression of him as well. It should be cool to see him gradually get further and further away from me because of my growing belly, lol.

Anyway, here is one of my belly pics, 5 weeks, 4 days:
