haha there's no point in even taking a picture for me yet. still flat as ever. i don't think i'll start showing until 20 weeks-ish...and this is my second pregnancy. i'm really skinny so it takes a while for things to get beyond 'oh you're starting to look like a normal weight again'.<br>
you look fabulous though kawa kamuri!!

<p>You ladies are both beautiful!  I love your bellies!! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>At 12 weeks on the nose I'm awkwardly in between looking pregnant and looking seriously bloated.  I think I'll start taking pics when I get past the "ate too much" stage!</p>

<p>Thank you Kawa! I decided to start doing the silhouette series after my 14th week and I only wish I'd thought to start earlier. :( I hope to have a complete series at the end of pregnancy!   Believe it or not I'm actually taking those pictures with nothing more than a desk lamp pointed against a corner of my room. :) You can do your own as long as you have a camera with a function allowing you to manually set (and measure) exposure, which most P&S' have nowadays.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Take a lamp and point it at a wall, or a corner, aim it at a point at the wall equal to the distance half-way up your body.</p>
<p>If it's a DSLR set camera to f5.6 and focus on a point six feet away, then set the focus to stay (switch to manual). Everything within six feet of the lens will be in focus.</p>
<p>If it's a point and shoot set to the lowest F stop you can.</p>
<p>Mount camera on a tripod about 4-5 feet from the wall with the lens at chest-level (NOT belly level).</p>
<p>Read and set your camera's exposure for the brightest point at the wall, then add about 2/3 of a stop (this will blow out the whole back wall and give a little light wrap to your body).</p>
<p>Stand about 1.5-2ft away from the wall, and set a timer to shoot.</p>
<p>Practice until perfect. :)</p>

<p>Here I am! I'm 13 weeks in the picture, I'll be 14 weeks tomorrow with baby #1 :) Not quite as lovely and artistic as some of yours, but dammit, I'm proud of my little bump :p</p>

<p>Spin you're super cute. :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Is there a way we can officialize this thread and sticky it to the top of the page?? I'd love to see a belly thread stay permanent like in the May DDC. :)</p>

<p>I agree that you're super cute and I love your belly! I wish I could remember what mine looked like the first time but my oldest is about to turn sixteen so I just can't recall.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks so much for the pro tips, Babs! That was really sweet of you. I'm sure my camera can handle the job <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> The above was just snapped quickly with my Macbook. I don't usually start taking them until 15w and then at least once a week from that point. I often feel gigantic and awkward and sometimes not very pretty throughout my pregnancies so it really helps me to photograph the changes in flattering ways.  </p>

<p>Thank you both! :D</p>
<p> </p>
<p>That's a really good idea. I'm struggling with weird vain feelings I never thought I'd have. I finally got a new memory card for my point and shoot, maybe I'll try something fancy over the few weeks to make me feel a little better about the change.</p>
