I feel like such a hog posting these, but I swear I did not have a beer gut pre-pregnancy. A bit of left over flappy skin from DD2, but nothing like this. (And I LOST another two lbs since 7weeks. Yikes.)

9 weeks and a couple days

Midwife appt in a week or so, so we'll see what she has to say about my super uterus. If she raises her eyebrows at it, I'll go get an ultrasound to see how many pollywogs are in there, but right now i am just telling myself that this is my third pregnancy in four years - I'm lucky my uterus didn't jump out and run away, and is instead jumping right back into action. She's a hard working gal.

Wow, we already have at least one mama in our ddc with twins and one with triplets, but you might be the first with sextuplets!

The belly is adorable though

Mine looks much like erickalynnes! hehe...However, I am full of gas (watch out! lol) AND my tummy muscles never really went back together after have my near 11lbs son (and I was lucky if I could fit in a size 0 when I got pregnant with him - because I mostly still had to buy children sized clothing) ....so I look about 4 months pregnant, but its all understandable! hehe

Mummy me : > Thats Ann! and my beautiful SONS Duncanand Hamish 19/09/05 & 22/04/10!

My uterus is also super big...measuring a couple fingers from my navel (that is, when my bladder is full in the morning!) I suck it in because I really don't want people to know i'm pregnant right now (it's looking bad) but I do look at least very bloated, . It's my fourth, so...yeah.

4 kids under 10

Awwww, cute bellies! I want one, I want one! LOL I was in maternity clothes by 10 weeks w/ my DS (ummm, totally split my last pair of barely-fitting pre-preggo jeans while out in public LOL), so I'm wondering how soon I'll have to switch over this time....

I've gained 4lbs and in the evening I look about 8 months pregnant from bloat, but in the morning.... nothing.
And now for something I never thought I would say and mean... I want a belly!

My belly just totally popped over the past 5 days so I'm looking similar but no pics to show. And I'm still trying to keep it a secret from most. I had an u/s and only 1 baby growing in there, but you would think I'm much further along.

Me too! I've got a looong way to go though... I did take a "before" picture, but my guess is that there won't be anything else worth taking a picture of for quite a while.

Ok, so you know how I said I show nothing in the morning and become a super bloat blimp in the evening?
Well, I just updated the photos. One from this morning and one from right now. Admittedly, I'm letting it all hang out...but I was this morning too! I haven't even eaten dinner yet.

You mama's with your cute bellies are so lucky!! I'm overweight and my m/s has been so bad that I have lost 15lbs these last 2 months. My clothes still fit and I doubt that I'll see my baby bump until I'm closer to my 4th month or so!! I would have thought with twins that my belly would be growing at a scary rate, but it actually hasn't. It does feel so uncomfortable if clothes touch my belly wrong though even though they fit :\

I'm at 10w btw

Pregnant with B/G twins Due early April 2009

Every single person that has posted a picture looks BEAUTIFUL! You guys are so adorable - I love the bellies! Yeaaaa!!

I just look a bit fat(ter). LOL! But, I actually showed early last pregnancy, I think due to have a high waist - like there was nowhere for the baby to go but out. I suspect I'll be showing by 10 weeks this time around. (8+weeks now).

I'm already wearing elastic waist pants for comfort. But I'm basically sick 24/7 so I'm wearing a lot of PJ pants. If I'm gonna be sick, I can at least have comfy pants.

Mama and co-parent to our beautiful DS (08/08) and our mighty strong DD (04/10) . Life is good.

love the belly pics! you all look so cute.

just went through the belly photos of my first pregnancy. didn't even take my first official one until i was 18 weeks. let's just say my 18 weeks photo then looks a lot like the way i look right now (not even 8 weeks yet). i'm thinking i'll start taking photos around 12 weeks this time around. looking forward to posting and watching everyone's progress.

i too think it's a good idea to sticky the thread so we can see the transformation.

Wow, this thread is making me feel better! I'm 11 weeks 2 days today, and I've been totally in maternity clothes for the past week. I just can't fit into anything else without looking ridiculous. I would post pictures, but our camera died

When I was buying maternity shirts at Target last weekend, the room attendant saw the clothes and said, "Ma'am, are you expecting?" I was not expecting this question, so I just said, "Well, yes."
"How far along are you?"
"Um... 11 weeks."
"You do not look pregnant? Why you be buying those clothes? Mmm mmm mmmm."
"Well. None of my clothes fit."
"Well, you sure don't look pregnant to me"

So that was funny but odd... and not reassuring, because if I don't look pregnant, then I do not look good!

So thankful for our healthy baby boy, born Easter morning, 2010!

Hehe! I'm sure she was *attempting* a compliment.
But I would have had the same reaction.... well if I don't look pregnant, then I just look... engorged!

I am 5'8'' and weigh 300 lbs... give or take... anyway, I haven't gained any weight yet during the pregnancy, and don't expect to until closer to the end of trimester 2... I am however into maternity pants as my regular pants don't fit... but I finally decided to do a pregnancy shot anyway... It will be neat to see the change even if I am a walrus.
