We dont have a thread for bump photos yet!

Obviously, we all do not have much to show for ourselves yet. I am bloated and have leftover tummy flab this time around but other than that, no 'real' bump yet. However, I plan to take a photo every 'month' (based on 4 weeks and maybe based on actual month based on day - does that make sense? lmao) mark... I put my first one in my blog! (in sig below) hehe

For ds I took a photo every week. You would be amazed at how much growth there is per week. I will probably start that again soon...I started at 8 weeks with him.

I'm probably starting at 8 weeks. I have one more miscarriage anniversary to get past, which is next Monday (or Wednesday, depending on how you're counting), and then a few more days for good measure. But considering I'm one of the women already in maternity, I figure I should put up a pic soon

I have a ton of belly fat left over from #1 so I think I 'll start at 12 weeks not sure even then anything will be visible!

The first round was so much more fun like that... oh the days of a flat stomach... sigh....

I took 1 at just past 4 weeks and the next at 5 1/2. I would have liked to take it at 5 but it took me 3 days to find my camera charger! I don't look pregnant yet, but I swear there's already a difference between the 2 pictures.

Do you think we could make this thread a sticky so we can start posting?

That is cute!

Do you remember that commercial (for a camera company I think) that showed a picture of a woman in the same spot in her house every day of her pregnancy? Always made me cry!

Hmm. Will have to figure out a way to post pics then. I've got a "Belly Book" that has a place for each week. We took one week 6, and finally got the camera ready, so looks like Saturday is week 7 and off to start adding to the book.

Just not sure what to wear. Guessing a cami.

Still just happy.

Ooo, I'm off to take my first picture.
I've seen the belly pic threads in the other DDCs and it is so fun to see the progression through the weeks. As liss said, I'll also just update this post with each pic as it comes.

OK I want to play. I have to admit I sucked it in a little for this one LOL. I also had to find the right lighting, I forgot how bad my stretch marks are from my first pregnancy!

I'm starting off 17 lbs heavier than last time

Take a belly pic! It is going to change BIG TIME and you will be glad you did it. If not you can delete them afterwards

I don't know if I want to take any pictures yet!! I have managed to put on an extra 20lbs over the past couple years!! I am so jealous of everyone's small hips/waists!! My waist isn't huge since most of my weight is in my hips, but I have a lower pooch bigger than what I would like. The good thing is that I may fit in my jeans a bit longer since they are always huge in my waist anyways in order to fit in my legs/hips. LOL!

I guess perhaps I will take a picture this weekend -- just may not share it quite yet.

I'm not comfortable taking a pic, although maybe I will and not share it yet. I am definitely overweight despite losing 20 pounds this year already. I would like to lose an additional 30, but I suppose that will have to wait until the baby comes!

I'm thirty pounds over weight or so still, but I plan to post mine! I just need to find a place were they will be visible to people here, but not everyone else. I have a couple of family members that actually search me out from time to time. Nothing I post online is ever personal for long.

oh yuck! I use photobucket and have my album set to private so that only the links I post are visible, not the entire album. You can set a guest password if you want so that others can view it, but only if they have your password.
