So the I need to complain thread made me think of showing off our third trimester (or soon to be) bellies.<br><br>
I also no longer fit any of my maternity clothes, I'm down to drawstring and elastic, and it's about time to find some new sarong fabric (DP stole all my good ones)! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
anyhow even the maternity tops don't cover that belly- grrrr!<br><br>
so let's see everyone popping out of their clothing!

OOOOO, you have a CUTE belly. Lucky for you you can get away with showing some skin <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I couldn't pull that off, with my stretchmarky pouch flabbing away below my firm baby belly tucked right under my boobs. Hooray for the split belly....haven't we been thru this????<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

23 week picture (last week):<br><br>
del for privacy<br><br>
I can totally relate to the shirt issue... I'm 5'10 and my shirts are TOO SHORT! I did go to Motherhood and get 2 ribbed tanks that MIGHT get me to the end! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Everyone looks so great! Third trimester here we come! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

Not quite popping out of my clothes yet but I carried DS really close and that's how I'm carrying this babe to.<br><br><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/711714826/" target="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/711714826/</a>

You guys all look great! I am going to have to have DH take some photos when he gets time! My shirts are getting short too. I ended up just getting tanks from Old Navy in bigger size. They are pretty long. I wear them under a lot of my maternity tops that show too much boobage! Someone told me that is the only thing they liked those Bella Bands (?) for, they put them on at this stage in PG to bridge the gap between shirts and pants. I may have to look into that!

Wow, I guess this is the benefit of being a short thing - I am only five feet tall, so while most of my shirts hung down to my yankees at the beginning of this pg, now they fit just right. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Now if I could just find comfortable pants - they are either too tight or fall off - so I am going with the looser ones out of comfort and just getting used to the odd looks from strangers as I go around hiking up my britches!<br><br>
ETA: I have found some of dh's shirt's fit pretty well right now, too - and they are quite a bit longer than mine!

Sadly my pg belly doesn't look much different than my non pg belly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grossedout.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="gross"><br>
And I am not about to post pics of THAT! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Well, if dh hadn't lost the little memory card for our digital cam I'd be able to show you all my belly!<br><br>
Lovethyspirit, where was that pic taken? Was it here in San Antonio?

Ok, so I finally got my dh to take a picture of me. I am wearing the same shirt with the same theory of taking a picture of your baby in front of a stuffed animal. This way we can really see how big I get <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> When I start out growing the shirt.<br>
One of the pictures my ds 2 wanted in on the action <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> He is cute.<br><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/" target="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/</a><br>
hopefully this works

I love seeing how I compare with everyone else <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I don't feel like I've gotten much bigger, but I got so big when I first got pregnant, the baby is just getting up with my belly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Thanks justthatgirl. My ds is so excited for his baby <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I just thought of that because with my other two I changed shirts and some I looked bigger in then others. So I figured if I did the same one I could actually tell how I looked.

You know, I think a 'then and now' boobie thread would be great, too. How have the girls changed? Photos anyone? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I guess I don't have any pictures of that, but my band size has gone up a few. I need to get my extender out. I've gone up one cup size too. I expect to go up another cup and a half when my milk comes in and then go down a half size once established. At least that's what I did the other 2 times <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
I have so much cleavige (sp) right now!
