i know there were a few belly photo threads circulating, but they seem to have faded away.  was hoping we could start an "official" one and keep it going for the next 6+ months.  

 

i'm 16 weeks today and definitely ready to start showing off my bump.  who's with me?

 

here i am this morning.  when i was pregnant with dd we took all my belly photos in front of the refrigerator, so i thought we'd keep that trend going. 

 

here's one of me with dd.

 

looking forward to seeing those bellies!

I don't have a real bump yet either annaconda - just looking like I gained weight around the middle.

oooohhh! you all have such lovely bumps! I'm so jealous, I'm 14 weeks but I felt "bigger" at 12! It seems like a lot of my bloat has gone away, and so now even my "beer gut" is gone. irked.gif
I know it wasn't baby before, but it was just so much fun having something... I can't wait to pop!

Hee hee, yeah, I don't think I can hide it any longer.orngtongue.gif

Oddly enough I do feel a little smaller now than I did 3 1/2 wks ago, but not still not small enough to hide anything.biggrinbounce.gif

It's funny so many of you said you feel smaller now... I do too! I always feel that way (and look it, too!) just as I enter the second trimester. The bloating goes down and I 'shrink' a few inches!

Glad I'm not the only one who has shrunk. I definitely looked more pregnant a few weeks ago. Now I'm back to looking like I just drank a 6 pack of beer. :(

So I'm at 12w6d, and I'm sure some of this is still bloat, but man I look huge! 13wks.JPG

This was taken a week ago at 12w 6d.  I think IRL I look bigger...it's the trick of where the pants are hitting...but the bigness is from bloat/fat than baby.

Okay I finally took some new pics last night, so here's my updated growth chart: belly comparison chart! It goes from the day of my positive HPT onward. :) I did one for each kid so it's kind of cool to see how each pregnancy differed.

 

I also took a more "arty" one using the light from my desklamp. Nudity is implied but not really seen (still, it's probably not work safe just the same... there's a nipple shadow but nothing is overtly visible): arty 13.5 weeks

Gorgeous pics ladies! littleteapot I LOVE the arty one! It is beautiful!!! I was a May 08 mama and a May 10 mama so I'm kinda lurking (just so you know I'm not a stalker) such sweet memories of this time last year. Best wishes as you carry forth with beautiful life inside.

15 weeks. Rather large, I guess, but baby's measuring a week ahead, so that might be why.
