I know its still pretty early for most of us but I thought I would start this thread anyways. Post your belly photos for all us to see and compare! Probably the easiest way to do it is to every time you take a new photo go back and edit your original post and add the new photo to your post. That way our thread doesnt get really long.

I will be 4 weeks tomorrow and I will be taking a photo then as my "before" photo.

I'm a big girl already. It will take more than a kidney bean sized baby to show on me. I love those photo series on YouTube but mine would be pretty boring for 3/4th of the time.

i'm 5'2" and weigh 113 (i'm up 1 lb) ... i'm... hoping my pouch i've developed the last week or so is due to bloat from the vitamins or extra eating or what-not... because if there is more than one in there, oh lord...

ok, pardon the hair and clothes. I've GOT to start taking these at the beginning of the day when I don't look awful. I'm disgusted with how fast I'm showing this time. I can already feel my fundus. Ugh!

Wow you can tell a huge difference in 4 weeks time there! You are looking good mama!!!!

I can already tell a difference just from week 4 to week 6 on myself. I am wondering how much longer I can hold out on the maternity clothes. I have to until week 8 because we arent telling family until then. . . . So lounging in sweatpants til then! Yesterday at my Chiro appointment my chiros wife is his assistant and she was like have you lost weight? You look good. I just laughed and was like no, actually gained weight. I love her!! Lol

I know. LOL I decide to do it that way to help me not gain my normal 40 or more pounds. I still have an extra 20 on me from my last pregnancy.

At least you have a baby from those extra 20 pounds. . . I have a extra 30# but mine is just from PCOS and all the stuff that goes with that. . .

Here's my conception-time belly photo, all exercised and everything. I already miss it... My food baby is huge right now, but I haven't had the chance to take another picture yet.

You all look great! I lost a lot of bloat this last week so mine isn't looking too impressive all of a sudden!

My belly still doesn't look or feel any different than from when I took a picture at 3w4d, lol. I'm going to try to hold off "examining" it until 10 weeks and hopefully there'll be a worthwhile belly by then.

Ha! Don't worry!
I was looking back at my pics from DS -- I'm exactly the same size in each pic from 5w to 13w!! It *seems* like it was a lot of bloat in the beginning. By 13w you can actually see some belly up higher, but it doesn't stick out any more than it did at 5w. Crazy, I know.

But that tells me that I might actually be able to delay maternity clothes for another 6 weeks. Man that'd be nice.

I'll find another way, other than FB. That place is too public (ha! she says on MDC...).
