I know, I know. Early, early. But it'll be interesting to see what we look like as we progress.

I know I'm going to want something to look back on.

Share yours!

I figure we can update each of our own threads as we progress, that way they're located in the same spot.

7 weeks, no belly yet, just boobs.

At 10 weeks, I'm starting to get a little bump (it gets bigger after meals). DH is very excited to finally see something.

And just for fun, me sitting on my dirtbike (no, I didn't actually ride it).

Dressed up for my last concert of the season. As fun as it is, I'm glad to have a break from it now.

YAY! Replies.

I like option 1. I don't know how to sticky-fy. I think mods do it?

But we can go back to our first belly post and update as the weeks progress.


Thank you so much for participating!

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

25 weeks

29 weeks

30 weeks front, you can see the belly pushing away from my ribs

30 weeks side

32 weeks

35 weeks!

Pretty sure bra is allowed.

Go to www.photobucket.com
Upload your picture there.
Copy the "direct link"
Come here
Type a word like "belly", highlight it
Click the button that looks like a world
Paste the link and there you go!

Hope this helped.

Uh-uh, no way am I showing any belly until it's actually baby belly! Right now it's just fat, and nobody wants to see that.

Yes, this. I have one of those floppy, faded stretch mark covered extra skin flap things going on. It's really quite scary. Once all that excess skin is filled out a bit I'll join in the fun.

You gals are entirely too cute, so to bring this thread back down to earth a little, I'll add mine. Keep in mind that this is my second, and I was terribly constipated for several days which caused massive bloat, and the solstice is effecting the force of gravity, and.... ok, here it is.

8.5 weeks

8.5 weeks, other side, minus cat

I bought a pair of maternity jeans this weekend, and I feel loads better.

Here's mine. This is my 4th pregnancy, hopefully third baby. I'm 5wks 5days.

I had no stretch marks with dd1 and despite a c-section, no belly flap. I earned those with dd2. I actually like my smooshy belly. It feels nice, the stretch marks give it an interesting texture.

I've always had a poochy belly even when I was 100lbs, so the post-pregnancy belly was never a big shock to me.

I LOVE that your cat participated, mine was sitting nearby, staring at me.... wondering, what on earth I was doing, since I took way more than one picture.

Heh. I think it is really funny that the only ones who want to volunteer pictures are the skinny chicks. (Speaking of which--not posting pictures because man am I chunky these days.)

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

me too!

just imagine what's left after this (the day before DD was born). Is it any wonder I was constantly asked if I was having twins? I'm so glad I took this picture, because now looking at it I am amazed at how big my stomach is. At the time I felt big, but not that big. My stomach makes my size H boobs look normal!

Same here. It was a little scary seeing all the skinny mamas, and I started tot hink I may be the only one with the extra skin flap.

Here are my bump pics. I've never put an album on Mothering before so lets see if this works.

5 wks

5 wks 4days

9wks 1day

9wks 1 day pic 2

Haven't been able to wear normal pants since 5 wks, I started to show early. Crazy. I really like the tops in the 9wk pics I found today. I'm hoping they will work with bfing and hoping I can sew in a piece of velcro for breast pads for leaking. I just can't stand bras and hoping this idea works. I think they are really cute and can get more at the shop I found them at today.

Hello ladies and congrats to everyone!!! I'm excited for this thread

I've never posted pics before, so let's see if this works.

These are pics from 8.5 weeks. One morning I woke up and felt I had popped out a little. It is mostly just bloating and a little extra chunk left over from DD. I haven't changed much since then (now 10 weeks) but I'll update again next week.

8 weeks shirt down.

And for fun, one that looks REALLY BIG!! Must have been the angle the camera was at, or I was just letting lose for this one
