...When are we supposed to start that? I imagine fairly soon if we want 'before' pics...

I love seeing other people's belly pics..but not sharing mine just yet! I'm not a big person(130 lbs), but am super bloated and have tummy overhang from 3 previous c-sections within the past 5 yrs I love when the baby finally fills it out around 16 weeks, and then I start documenting the tummy! Hmm....maybe I can just shoot with clothes on, lol!

I can understand shyness. I'm not thrilled with my weight right this minute, so I've been reluctant to take pics.

I do like to see the 'before' pictures because, as one who's never had a pregnancy progress past a very early point, I'm fascinated with when and how women begin to show. It's always such a fun progression to watch!

Hmm...funny about that. My "before" shots would look like other peoples "22 weeks plus" shots. Combo of being a bit fluffier than I really need to be and a complete lack of abdominal muscles connected together.

I had three major abdomninal surgeries and so my tummy pooches out like I am already well along.

I took this one on Sept 6th, so just a few days into what would become our successful cycle.

I am 200 lbs, 5'8", short (SHORTTTTT, lol) torso and that's a twin pg in 2002, singleton in 2004, m/c in 2007 and singleton in 2008 (all c/s).

I'll begin taking them more regularly once I begin pooching out. Thankfully, I'm not pooching out more than usual, other than the occasional bloat.

I just gave birth to my youngest daughter 6 months ago, so I haven't even lost the extra pooch from that pregnancy!

I probably won't be taking progression pics until 12 weeks.

I took them weekly starting at 4 weeks last time. This time I took a "before" at 5 weeks and plan on another picture at 8 weeks, then once a month after that.

Ugh! I don't think I'll be sharing...My belly is such a wreck from my first pregnancy. I am tall (5'11") and weigh 155lb. But DS was such a large baby, that he stretched my tummy skin like crazy! I have extra skin and stretchmarks that are wider than zippers running up and down my tummy and hips. Even my belly-button is bigger than it used to be after being stretched out. Silly me, I never thought to take belly pics before my first pregnancy, so I never again have hope of taking a picture of my stomach that it's totally icky! Then I also had my gallbladder removed last November, so I have scars from surgery as well! Not a pretty sight .

I'll probably start taking them soon- won't post any until there is some belly that consists of baby and not fat...

I got horrific stretch marks as well, slsurface, and when I added up all the extra skin(my stretch marks are really wide too) I have about 6 inches of spare skin

I hope I don't get any more this time around. Although I've already put 3 pds on in the past 2 weeks- so who knows what will happen!

My last pregnancy:

10 weeks

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h2...n/DSC01577.jpg

37.5 weeks (he was born at 39 weeks)

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h273/kbcain/36w6d.jpg

I'll start taking them around 10 weeks again for this pregnancy.

This photo was taken the week we conceived. We spent a week backpacking on a trail in Eastern Washington called the Enchantments. Sure was a memorable trip!

Looking forward to watching my belly grow!

I love seeing everyone elses pics too!
I think I'll be way to shy to put mine up tho because my belly is squarely on the pudgy side already.
