I'll post one at "official" 4 weeks, which I think is Tuesday.

I'm freaked out because I already feel like I have a belly. It's more that I'm bloated an my abs are too tired to suck in, I think... Ugh, I'm worried my short torso is going to = One Big Mama.

I guess I could live with that.

I took a picture today at 4w exactly, but I can't find the cord to connect my camera to my computer. I'll try to find it and upload the pic later today. Looking forward to watching our bellies grow!!!

Yea that. This is baby #4 for me, and there's no way I'm taking a pic until I actually look pregnant, and not just really fat. LOL
You skinny people keep posting, and I'd love to see a non-skinny person post too, just to compare mine. hehe

Thanks, lawmama! I love looking at belly pics, so I figured I would start early with my own. Can't you tell I'm a 1st timer? I mean, 4 weeks is pretty darn early to start taking pictures! I look forward to the coming weeks when this thread is more active.

I think it's great to start early! I don't have enough with DS, but with this next pregnancy, whenever it is, I plan to do them weekly (ah, how to explain to DS1 why he doesn't have weekly belly shots )

Cute pic! I'm only 4 days late and haven't taken a test but you've given me a great idea to take lots of belly pics if this is the month...

Cute pics Mamas! I'm already carrying some extra weight so I too am going to wait to post a pic. There is nothing there right now that anyone wants to see!

Life is to be enjoyed...not just endured!

Looking at myself in the mirror is sort of making me hope it's twins (but not really)... because then at least there would be an excuse for showing so early with my first.

WTH?? I admit that I had a little bit of "softness" before pregnancy, but this is crazy! Not to mention the water I seem to be retaining IN MY FACE I already caved and bought a few maternity tops because nothing was fitting right anymore. I have never carried so much weight around my middle before.

FWIW, I've only gained about 2 lbs...

I seriously need to get dh or somebody to take belly pics of me. But I have a bit of a dilemma. My bump expands when I eat. Should I take the pics in the morning before I have a meal or in the evening after the last meal?

I'd probably go with morning. That's when I record weight too. Food can really change the way you look over the day!

I got DH to take a pic of me last week at 5w and we'll do tomorrow at 6w, but I'm not putting the pictures up yet. Not ready for anyone I know personally to find the news out accidentally through my flickr stream!
