Post your pregnant belly shots here. I like to start early on, and take one every 2 weeks until delivery. I have them like that from B but that's it.

It might be easier if we post them all to our original post too, so you would come to your first post and edit it to add the new photos.

I can't wait to share these memories with you all.

I plan to officially take a photo every 3 weeks on my Friday off. That'll help me remember to do it. So I've done one and have the next one coming up this week. But I don't feel comfortable sharing before we tell our families. Maybe next week.

i didn't start taking belly pictures until, i think, 12 weeks with wrenna? so i will wait til then, but then i take them weekly.

i did take one at 4w as a baseline but i took it myself so it's not very good.

here i am at 12w!
covered
uncovered

just starting to show. you can't really tell unless i'm wearing something tight, but even then only if you know that my belly is usually flat.

I should take one as a baseline too but I'm pretty sure my "baby belly" is still actually "chocolate belly"

Haha, that's funny!! Mine is a mixture of chocolate and left over from last birth. Actually because I ended up with an emergency C/S I have this tight scar and belly over it that I have zero feeling in............how do you lose something you can't even feel LOL

I think I'm gonna wait until closer to 12 weeks to start taking pictures that way I can at least claim the chub as baby fat, LOL. Even though I lost the weight according to the scale after my last baby there is definitely some extra stuff going on there After that I usually taken them every two weeks.

Starting to get some baby belly going, so here's just past "baseline" at about
7 weeks.

Hopefully that works, the album is private because we're waiting to tell most people.

Thanks I love that one. It is a cover of an old one I had that looked horrible through my last pregnancy (it had been partially lasered to remove it). I had the cover done starting when DS was 8 months...it's my favorite. A tribute to my BFF that passed almost 2 years ago and her baby boy that I nursed after she couldn't and my son as well. It is so special to me, so thank you for noticing it I want to expand it after this pregnancy to include something for both my kidos. I'd be all covered in ink if I thought I could get away with it (super-conservative job!)

that's a beautiful story though i'm sorry about your bff. : i would love to see closer pictures.

mine is also a coverup, but one of just a silly kanji i got when i was 18. there was nothing wrong with it but all my other tattoos (i have 3-4 depending on how you count the birds!) are meaningful, and i wanted to use the space lol! so we covered it. here they are

a month before pregnancy

and

10 days before i gave birth!

It's easier if you just click on the picture so it shows up as the only picture in that screen- in full-size.... and then just copy the address at the top of your nagivation bar instead of using the link the photo-hosting site provides with the "share this picture" option. You can pop the address from your navigation bar into the "insert link" option here on MDC and that should work. I had the same problem yesterday with my tattoo pictures and had to fiddle around for a while to figure it out
