Ok here's the progression...

Pretty funny how I just popped out all the sudden. It looks even bigger when I am wearing clothes for some reason... but still looks like I've just eaten too many donuts.

Updated my original post with past 2 weeks.
Today's pics I want to have DH help me redo in our usual spot. I feel like my lower abdomen is starting to pop out, from the front you can see roundness way down low. I feel like I look more pregnant naked or showing my belly with my pants low, and in clothes I just look like I am thick and bloated. Regular pants definitely not fitting at this point. If I wear 1 size up I can button, but uncomfortable by the end of the day. I have a new pair of low rised maternity shorts that are nice and comfy, but loose and plenty of room to grow into.

ok, I hope my attempts at updating my original post work! I didn't even bother trying to suck it in, it just hurts my uterus now. I am appalled at my posture, I need to start doing yoga ASAP! Now that I can move around without needing to puke

Mandie, I feel like I'm the same size as you but without twins! And I love seeing all the bellies start popping out

Who's next??

I'm due in late late Jan so I'm a bit behind the rest of you ladies but here goes:
7 weeks

9 weeks

10 weeks

11 weeks

should be taking my 12 week photo tomorrow morning. I've tried to stay consistent taking the pictures (and weighing myself) in the morning before I eat because I've noticed that I'm suuuuper gassy lately anytime I eat anything a few minutes later I look overly puffed out.

I think I've gained about 4 lbs so far, but I was horribly nauseated up until recently and haven't been doing much beyond going to work. Hopefully now that the 1st tri is coming to an end I'll get some relief and can get back into a workout routine.

Edit: I also just noticed that I keep obscuring my own face when I take the shots each week. I've gotta stop that!

I finally have a belly worthy of posting!

8 weeks and 12.5 weeks.

Hmmm... That last photo was taken in the evening. I swear my belly isn't that big during the day!

hi, everyone. i'm due around january 10th with my first little one. i've always been fairly overweight (about 30 pounds or so) and embarrassed with my pudgy body, so i have no pictures of my first thirteen weeks. so many of you are in such great shape it puts me to shame; i commend you mommies with a bit of extra fluff for being brave enough to post your pics! :P

i may start taking some pictures in another month or so, but right now - even after having lost close to twenty pounds thanks to all-day-long morning sickness for the last month-and-a-half - i'm still too pudgy. and since i've always been "extra fluffy", i really can't even tell if i even HAVE a bump! maybe i'll just start taking pictures anyway and then i'll be able to tell as time goes by. i do love watching other bellies grow, though. congratulations to everyone.

Okay, I forgot to take one up till now, but here I am at 12 weeks:
12 weeks

By the way, I am 36 years old and have gained weight over the years too. I started out this pregnancy at about 40-50 lb over my "ideal" weight, so ignore the extra flab on me too.

I look about the same as you, jillmamma! I am only 26, but I am at least 40 over my ideal and a little less in shape than I started out last time, so suddenly I look about 5 months, and I am only 14 weeks!! It's time to head to the gym for good, for me....I will post mine tomorrow!

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

O.K. so I've never actually taken any belly bump pics before but was suggested that I do this time to document how enormous that I will get with this pregnancy.

Here I am at 17 wks with twins:

I am as big here as I am when I am 7 months pregnant with a single.

For reference...this is me at my Dad's funeral, 3 days before our last child was born:

I think you looked bigger in the 12.5 week shot. You're such a wee thing, I'm surprised you haven't popped out yet!

I'm about a week behind taking photos and pretty sure I'm getting bigger every day. In fact, a few days ago a complete stranger on the street asked me how many months I am and if he could rub my belly for good luck, so I guess I'm looking more than just chubby now!

I know! I think I was having a particularly bloated evening when that
12 week photo was taken. Ah well. I didn't look noticeably pregnant (to strangers) until I was over 25 weeks with my son. So we will see.

Mandie! Check out that twin belly! Hurrah!

so here's me at 9 weeks 4 days
pic 1: sucking it in as much as humanly possible
pic 2: just normal (not much diff, lol)
pic 3: from front, sucking in the bloat
pic 4: from front, letting it all hang out

This is taken in the evening after a lot of munching, but it's about how things look during the day. I'm slightly less bloated in the morning but only because I haven't eaten. My belly button is going to pop at 3 months this time I swear! It's already threatening But after one baby it doesn't seem like it will ever be the same. Especially on my frame, I'm 5'3" and have a short torso.

week 15 :pic 1 pic 2 pic 3

week 20 (+5 days): pic1 pic2 pic3
here's my latest pics (updated post on page one, links above). I haven't been quite as regular in pic taking as I'd like, but we're hitting the ballpark of every 4 weeks or so
