I finally remembered to upload all my belly pics, but I just realized that I put them on my blog, but didn't upload them to a separate picture site, so I might as well link to my blog and you can see them there. I've taken pics nearly every week so eventually, I'll upload the rest if you really want to see the progression.

In this blog link, I show weeks 4, 8, 11, 13, 16, 19, and 21, then a pic at 18 weeks with each of my three pregnancies:

cheryl - I am in the non-prefectly round club too, but I wear a bella band everyday. I wear it because it keeps the maternity pants up, but the help in rounding things out is appreciated too.

Thanks!

I'm loving all these beautiful bellies!! I'm looking forward to just lounging around the pool with my little one. Although she's only 15 months, so I doubt I'll do much lounging!!

Happily married to my sweet DH with two precious girls (12/08) and (8/10) and a crazy puppy dog. Expecting blessing #3 around 12/10.

Welcome, your looking good momma! I'm jealous that you're wearing a summer dress and I still have 3 feet of snow that needs to melt NOW. In due time, in due time. Fortunately, I have some cute dresses to look forward to wearing.

Ok my first belly shot that I will post here, before now I just looked FAT

My DS (who is 6.5) took this pic so the angle isn't that great, and he didn't warn me before he snapped the pic so I don't look that good either lol but you get the idea...

20 weeks 6 days

Week 5.5

Week 5.5

7 weeks side

7 weeks front

Well my frontal pics are all looking the same so I'll only post the side views for the past few weeks. When I look at my belly from my vantage, I see a bump, but I take a picture and it's still not that visible! A few days ago I felt bloated and I had enough energy to snap a picture, I might be sticking it out a little, but there's something there!

9 weeks

10 weeks

11 wk 4 d

11 wk 5 d (seriously, the next day)

I've been on vacation and felt there wasn't much change, but I measured and gained 4" around my waistline! I think my belly looks more obvious with a shirt on.

15.5 weeks

17 weeks

17 weeks shirt on

18 weeks

19 weeks in bra

19 weeks front. I think I've officially lost my waistline.

19 weeks shirt on. I swear I look bigger with a shirt over my belly.

22 wk 5 days

23 weeks. days later, but i swear i popped!

23 weeks side

We've been having some fun with our belly photos this pregnancy. With my first baby, I was in the hospital for my entire gestation and didn't have any photos of the pregnancy at ALL (not even ONE!). Nor my birth or my son's first week of life. So, this time around, I've been a little photo happy.

My first trimester, the belly was all bloat and looked pregnant to begin with, so the progression isn't really visible. But pregnancy just makes me feel so damn luscious and proud of my body that we started photos right away!

Enjoy!

Here is 8 weeks.
I'm smiling as hard as I can to show how damned happy I am!

And then 10 weeks
Right after this I spent two weeks in the hospital with hyperemesis, and was then put on bed rest. I was sick, but still managing to smile!

At 13 weeks
Still on bed rest, but managed to plaster my face with fake glowiness and take some snapshots.

20 weeks Belly to belly. I love this picture. It's my favourite so far.
20 weeks and having some fun... Finally starting to show for real!

Thank you for the compliments everyone!!

I stick my camera on a tripod, and have my husband take the pictures. We use lots of light and a white background so they're easy to edit afterwards.
I'm not a graphic designer or anything, just a SAHM who fiddles around on the computer, so they're not perfect, but I like them!
It gives me something to do while on bed rest. It takes quite a lot of time and patience to splice them together since I'm not a pro and learn as I go. I use a program called "Gimp" which is like a free version of photoshop.

Having someone hold the camera is key. Also, move around the house and find a spot with good lighting! Take the shades of your lamps and point them at you..do whatever it takes to fill the room with light.

Have fun!
