Wow, justme... You're really looking pregnant now!

Tell me about it, I had someone ask me when I was due. I said October and they said oh well how many are you having? I thought it was all just bloating, but it hasn't gone away and every morning I wake up I am shocked! lol I have gained 6 pounds since my 5 week pic.

I love the little differences everyone has now.

Here's my nine week shot, I put up the four week shot as a comparison. I don't know if this does it justice. Let me tell you, my clothes don't fit anymore. I've been trying to get through the first trimester before telling most people but I'm not going to get away with it much longer. People are definitely going to notice that I've gotten pretty chunky here lately.

I'd hardly call you chunky. Your pics look a lot like mine though so I totally understand what you mean. You're so used to being so small and thin that any weight you gain, everyone notices! Yay for a little bump though!

I would think you are medically underweight? Cute bump anyway!

I meant getting chunky in what comparison to people are used to seeing from me, they are going to know something is up way before I wanted to tell them! (For personal reasons, really, trying to plan a wedding, and I don't want people thinking one is the reason for the other.)

Definitely not complaining though, I have faith in my body to do what it needs to do for a healthy pregnancy and healthy breastfeeding.

Thanks! The bloating of last week seems to have gone down, which is a physical relief and also an emotional one... I was feeling extremely fat for only 7 weeks! I actually wore some pants without the bella band this week, so I know there's been a deflation.

^I was just going to say that it looks like you actually got a little smaller which would be a decrease in bloat!

My bloat is also pretty much gone so I'm looking almost normal again. I gotta take my 9wk pic a little later today. I've lost more weight since I've been sick all week. I'm down 5.5 lbs since getting a .

Here are my 9wk pics! I lost 3 lbs this week with being sick and it's actually very noticable so I attached an 8wk pic too for comparison.

I was 12 weeks pregnant walking down the aisle! We were a little more fertile than we thought but it was totally planned but I was also afraid that people were muttering 'shotgun'.

The photographer caught me holding my belly in the midst of my nerves. I think it's my favorite wedding picture.

I was worried about the same thing, I was 6 weeks pregnant with my son when my husband and I got married. When we got engaged, I was asked, "So when are you due??" And it made me so angry, because I wasn't pregnant, that's not why we were getting married, as if that's the only reason to do it! I felt the need to explain to everyone that we were engaged and picked the date out months before we conceived ds.

Anyway, great picture!
