Oh dear, I took one tonight, and I am waaay too chunky to post yet! No baby belly, just my big fat one! lol I'm sad, I wanted to lose weight before we got pg, but it didn't happen, and now I'm afraid of what I'm going to look like. I just want a big round belly, not a belly with a fat roll on top. :/ Grrr.

I'm in the same situation. Right now I look close to the way I looked at 5mths with #1... and I am not even 7 weeks yet. I have severe bloating though, and nothing will convince me to post a pic yet

Haha I pretty much feel the same way. Too much flubber not enough baby yet. But there has to be some cute little belly's developing out there! I will post mine in a few weeks when there is something more than just hangy stretched out skin due to DS and C Section AND overweightness! heehee. Although something is growing because today was definately the last day I will be wearing my black dress pants!

LOL, same here - I didn't lose all the baby weight from last time yet, and I'm bloated enough already that I think I'll be jumping right into my maternity clothes. Which is OK, since I love my maternity wardrobe!! I've spent enough of the last few years pg, I have some pretty stuff!

I'm glad I'm not the only one! There is no WAY I'm going to be posting any time soon! My upper fat roll is bigger than my lower fat roll!

I'm going to take one on Wednesday (4wks) and will post it. I'm a big girl, and nothing but IVF bloat is showing yet, but that way we'll have a starting reference.

andi-mama, that's a GREAT picture. Thanks for sharing!

My husband took a few vacation/anniversary pictures of my (clothed) tummy at the beach this afternoon. I will post them after I get back home. It's really almost all belly-fat and not baby at this point, but I wanted to document my tummy on our wedding anniversary so that I could show the kid years from now what I looked like when he was still very tiny.

Wow! andi-mama you look super cute but I cannot believe you're only 5 1/2 weeks in that picture!!

I'm 8 weeks and I don't think anyone would notice a bump at all but I'm also nearly 6 feet tall and don't show for a LONG time. Did anyone hear about our governor of Alaska who is pregnant with her 5th child and is 7 months along and JUST sprang the news? Nobody even knew, not even her staff!!! How she hid her pregnancy for 7 months is beyond me!

Oy, let see if I am brave enough to post pictures.

I haven't taken any yet, but I guess I will!

I know that I tend to show more at night, plus I am BLOATED!!!!!!

With my second I didn't show until almost 5 months I was hoping for the same for the 3rd!

So cute! I have to take a pic one of these mornings when I don't have the bloat going on. Plus I need to download pics, still haven't done that since our trip to Italy a year ago!

Ha! That's not bloat compared to my bloat, my stomach gets fully distended and I look like I'm 5 months pregnant. Crazy since it's my 1st and my stomach is relatively flat any other time.

OK, I have 2 pictures on my camera, but now I don't know what to do with them! I think my flat stomach is officially gone!

I didn't take any pics with my first pregnancy until 20ish weeks!! So I think I'd feel like a dork if I took early ones this time when clearly I have a little extra "baggage" from the first pregnancy hangin' round.
