i was wondering if we could get a belly bump thread started and stickied? even if we don't get a lot of pics yet, at least it would be there ready to go for when the time comes...

personally, i really want to document the belly this time. i didn't so much with the other two and i feel like i missed out on something.

I do too! And at the time, I thought belly pictures were stupid. I only took 2 or 3 during my last pregnancy.

I was hoping to get a pre-pregnancy picture soon, but man am I bloated!! If you didn't know it was bloat, I could be 3 or 4 months along already.

I took tons of pics last time, and I did a belly cast too, which I tried on the day before I coincidentaly concieved. I also had henna on my belly, which I loved! I will start belly pics today and post later

We took a pic at 4 weeks 3 days last Sunday and plan to take one every Sunday through the pregnancy as much as possible. I took pictures, maybe monthly (less with my last one since dh was deployed and it's hard to do yourself) with my others, I think it will be fun to do a weekly picture. I wore a very stretchy yoga type outfit so I should hopefully be able to wear the same outfit for all the pictures. I do not have a belly at all yet. Not even bloated. Shouldn't take too long though, by the 4th time around.

I do love belly shots - so much. Just watching everybody grow makes me happy.

Although, I do wish I had a flat belly to start off the pregnancy!

Oh I'm so glad to hear that I'm not alone w/ my bloated belly. I haven't really gained any weight but I look pregnant when I don't suck it in!! Granted, it's not like I had a flat belly to begin with, but still! I'm blooooated.

Look at the difference between my 6 weeks in the AM picture and my 6 weeks in the PM picture.

It's not horrible, but MAN i'm bloated by the end of the day.

I don't think its very noticable under clothing (especially if you don't know me and you don't know how small I normally am.), but it's uncomfortable! I've got that skin stretching feeling already.

I need to take a 6 week picture tomorrow (I'm already there, just want to keep my picture taking on Sundays). Danielle, my tummy is looking like your evening one, though I'm definitely fluffier to begin with than you. In the last few days I haven't been able to suck it in anymore to look normal. I'm looking fat now. I know that baby is still super tiny, but I've heard your uterus poofs out much more quickly the more babies you have.

ok, y'all look so slim to me! probably because I feel SO bloated right now! I swear my skin is already stretching. The bloat has gone right to the top of my tummy, I think because I carried really high the whole time with DS so I'm all stretched out there.

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

week 28 (+1d): pic1, pic2, pic3, pic4
