belly shots! Let's watch each other grow!



Okay ladies, dh is never around when I need a picture. So hard to hold the pad while snapping a shot. Here is my belly at 2 days shy of 19 weeks


Any more 19 weeks bellies??

Valerie11 Not using the wrap yet, it's mostly just collecting cat hair in my room at the moment (it's a hair magnet!). But very soon I will be. I've heard someone mention that they started using it at 20 weeks and that is 2 weeks away for me. My stomach doesn't feel 'too big' just yet, but I know what's coming and I'm glad to have the wrap for when that times comes.

cagnew alive: Wow! Gorgeous place to camp! And you look great

sarah: Lol!

Valerie: How are you liking the wrap? Are you using it often?

I love when I wake up from a nap and have somehow squished this kid into his own little corner of my uterus. I can out my hand one belly and I feel like I am holding him in my palm .

Valerie11 17.5 weeks. I'm enjoying the cooler weather since I can wear my full panel jeans (mediums, may need to buy larges now, though). And, I got my wrap in the mail yesterday! So I'm enjoying that. I imagine I'll have shorter 'tails' a couple of months from now.

jodieanneanton Wow! Beautiful, Ladies!

writermama12 22 weeks here!! My belly button is half poking out and I've had to wear a maternity support belt a few days. Also, I have been finding my body more fragile and my RLP is increasing a little bit when I don't take it easy. I lifted my sleeping toddlers in their stroller one day last week to bring them into the cool house and that really hurt later on. I now need to be a little more careful

cagnew We are all growing

I'll post next week at 20 weeks.

20 WEEKS!!!!!

TeeThatsMe Hello from 19 weeks!

entiti Thanks Valerie My body seems somewhat overly boyish to me at times....so it is nice to see a big round belly in the mirror! It just looks so lovely and feminine with all women. Your belly is looking beautiful as well! I love how the lines in your shirt are gravitating out and definitely around

It so nice to see everyone sprouting!
09-01-2014 05:38 PM
Valerie11 Oh, entiti, you have one of the most muscle-iest stomachs here, but you're definitely getting a real bump now. Good for you!

I was at a potuck yesterday and met another lady who was 19 wks. I was way bigger! lol....I kept having the twins thought pop into my head. But, she was also 12 years younger....and it was her first. I really would need to go sit down for a week if I were having twins!

gabeyho 14 weeks today. I am much farther behind than most of you. Here's to progress!
08-27-2014 07:45 PM
DuchessTergie Ok, here I am at 16 weeks, a bunch of days-- pretty close to 17 weeks. This is not only my first selfie, but a bump one at that. I know I've been complaining about being huge, and this shirt hides it well. I can't figure out how to snap a shot while pulling my shirt taught. I'm not coordinated or good with technology at all! So it goes without saying, I can't figure out how to rotate the photo on MDC, because it shows up properly rotated on my computer, let alone how to embed it......

OMG
Your belly does look like mine but yours looks cute

DuchessTergie HappyDay, yes!! One day I looked just a little fluffy. Today-- woah! I look 6 months along. Why is that?
08-26-2014 01:36 PM
happyday8598 Does anybody else notice that day by day their belly's come and go? Not due to bloat, but ... some other phenomenon?

Here's 17 week growth. I was bigger at 15 weeks!

I'm definitely growing in other places, though! Filling out my typically thinner frame quite well... lol
08-25-2014 05:11 PM
jodieanneanton Loving the bellies, ladies! I meant to post mine, but lost the cable for my camera until just recently! (Thank you, hubby!!! ) I will have to post soon!
08-25-2014 03:31 PM
sarahknavy I just downloaded this tap talk thing and figured I would backdate some pictures.

8 weeks



12 weeks



16 weeks!



My husband left right around 12 weeks and still has at least a week til returning. I joked this morning that my belly is finally bigger than my boobs. (Which is a big deal considering how giant my boobs are).

entiti Here's my 13w5d.
Lovely bellies, ladies

I'm so gonna buy this. Thanks. I have been going to Jo Ann'a fabric and for a good quality muslin it is $7.99 per yard x 3 I'd rather pay this and it is pretty.
