Just thought I share this here in case anyone wanted to do the same. I've done these for all of my pregnancies - starting at 6 weeks and doing them every 4 weeks.

Here's this pg at 6 weeks

Here's my first son's timeline

And my third son's (looks like I don't have #2 on the computer)

Oh my goodness, I LOVE those! The final picture with you holding the baby is **priceless** and such an awesome way to end those pictures. Really great shots!

I haven't done any - it looks like you use a maternity shirt the entire time right? Really cute! Thanks for sharing those.

Those are neat! I did something like that with Nora, but only at the end of the pregnancy... I'll have to try that this time.

Here's 35 weeks with Nora:

And here's 5 weeks with # 4:

I enjoy the belly pictures threads... watching all the bellies swelling really makes the process real for me.

BirthFree - Yep, I'm wearing the same maternity shirt and pants throughout the timeline

Katherine - Thanks for sharing your pics, I love belly pics! And, holy cow, I have WAY more bloat than you with #4!

I LOOOOVE it!!

I am NOT a fan of photos of myself, but this could very well be my LAST pregnancy, so I should REALLY try this!!

Twwly- Wow I wish my tummy tatoo made it through as well as yours did.
35.5weeks with ds. Very very swollen due to pre-e. I was induced a week later.
Oh and this is 6.5 weeks with this one. I am super bloated/or big with this one. I kinda think there might be more than one this time. As long as it isn't 3 like ds claims it to be.

Oh my gosh. You are SOOOOO skinny and you get ALL BELLY when you are pregnant. I hate you because I am so envious. You are so pretty!

Love the baby holding at the end. Awesome idea!

Twwly - OMG! Literally breathtaking!!! Wow.

Vanessa - Do you really think you have twins in there? That would be so exciting! My little sisters are twins and one of them is a Vanessa, too...

To all the mamas who said sweet things... thank you! :

But, I have to tell you... to get the huge belly, you have to take the BIG ole bottom that comes with it! Those pics are most DEFINITELY strategically cropped!

I was wondering if we could do a belly thread sticky that we could all update with our belly pics as we progress through? What do you think?

I had a heck of a time trying to figure out how to post photos here. What's the best way? It may be that you need to sign in to target/kodak before you can view them and I don't want that. LMK please! TIA!

*Mama Moose* - I live in those jammies, preggers or not. Penguin power!!

Kylahroo - Love the pic with the starfish skirt! Glad photobucket worked for you... I couldn't post pics for love or money w/o photobucket....
greenbeing's Avatar greenbeing 12:31 AM 10-31-2007
Wow, ladies, those bellies are beautiful!

I love the idea of taking a picture with the same clothes on every month. With my last, I took belly shots every month, but they were always in different clothes and different background. I'll have to go find some.
