So, post your belly pics, if you've got 'em! WHEN YOU HAVE AN UPDATED PICTURE, EDIT YOUR ORIGINAL POST SO WE KEEP THE THREAD LENGTH SHORTER & WE CAN SEE PROGRESSION. Thanks! (To edit, go to your original post & click on the blue EDIT icon at the bottom right of your post. Then, add your new belly shot to your list of other belly shots.)

To post a picture here, you'll have to have your image hosted at another site (Flickr, Shutterfly, Walgreens, photobucket, etc) and then you copy the link of your image. Then, paste it into your message OR click on the icon above your "advance setting" post that looks like a globe and a paperclip together, this allows you to have words that hyperlink to your image.

I'll take one tonight & add all mine.

Seven weeks sucked in (almost two weeks ago) at the children's museum (lest you think I have the mirror in my house )

18 weeks and 5 days

21 weeks and 5days

Aww, these are so sweet! Heck, ya, we've got bellies!

mrs_rockstar - I thought the mirror was befitting a rockstar, so I really wouldn't have questioned it.

April, I think, you've grown in 1.5 weeks. I see the difference!

I just snapped a pic of myself. So here's my collection to date:
My crazy crew & me at 4 weeks

5 Weeks POPPED out

6 Weeks really bloated

8 Weeks - I'm lower but out much further now

9 weeks, 5 days I'm filling out. That pink shirt I wore the two pictures before no long covers the bottom of my belly.

11 weeks, 6 days... Holy Cow! Hide the women & children. I am getting big.

13 weeks, 4 days Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow. I see my belly every day, but it's these pictures that I actually see... it's growing. Really really growing.

15 Weeks I contemplating wearing my same tunic, but thought you'd appreciate me in a solid. (Oh, and that's not a furry penis, I'm sporting, that's our cat's tail.)

17 Weeks I don't know if this picture quite shows the amount of growth. I've really grown in the last 2 weeks. My mom was out of town & came back & her mouth dropped. I'm just big.

... camera issues ... Sorry no updates.

30 Weeks Growing Baby and my double chins.

34 Weeks This is just the biggest I've ever been in pregnancy. I'm amazed at my belly! Wow! So cool! Grow baby, grow!

38 weeks Well, I think this will be my last official belly shot, unless I'm still at this a month from now. Ahh, this is a big bittersweet. My last baby!

You guys really have cute little bumps. I just have the same ole squishiness that has plagued me since my son was born. Fluffy and doughy.

Yay, I'm sure this thread is going to get super long! so much fun to watch everyone's bellies grow!

I am so bad about loading the pics from the camera...I only do it every few months! I will have to get better about that, I see! Hope to post some soon!

I'm the same as pp- not really 'showing', more like the usual post-baby squishiness is just more. I can tell I'm 'fatter' but it's not a belly that anyone would notice.

Yup, that's my 15 month old. My three year old was off to the side when I took this but her little sister is sort of always by my side

Spark, I love that bag. LOVE. I used to be bag crazy but I have that one and another bag in one of my favorite fabrics and I seriously don't think I'll ever need another.

What cute baby bellies! Once I manage to feel good enough to clean up and have a clear spot to take a picture and not feel embarrased I'll try to post one.

I just moved, so I have to dig my camera out of a box, then bring it to work (until I get the computer at home set up) to download whatever picture I get...

I just have a little "pooch," as DH calls it. I'm 10 weeks on Wednesday, but with #6 the muscles have completely gone on strike, given up and called it quits, so I'll probably be sliding up into maternity clothes pretty soon.

Pics soon.. the rest of you are SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!

I'm working up my nerve! I haven't ever posted belly pics before. I think everyone else looks fantastic, but I'm always a bit self conscious of the tummy area.

Lookin' good ladies!

I don't have an opinion one way or the other, but if you do, I can change the Original Post (OP) to give directions. Just tell me what you want me to put in it.

I don't have an overwhelming preference BUT it may be neat to have all the pics in the same post so we can click and watch the belly's grow.

ITA with Rachel.
with such a large DDC and all the replies, this thread is going to get messy. But if we keep all our belly pics in 1 thread, it;ll be easier to keep bellies to mama's in our minds. Eventually the back half of the thread would be all the comments, adn the 1st few pages would be all the bellies. Each post will end up being it;s own little gallery.

Sound good?

you could just edit to add:
When you want to add new or updated belly pics, just edit your original post and add them there. Thanks
