<p>In the maternity thread it was fun to see some big bellies, so I figured why not have a post for them!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here's me pregnant with my first at 17 weeks (where I'm at now), 24 weeks (when I popped), and 42 weeks (the day I was induced)</p>

<p>Here is my second pregnancy.</p>

<p>my last pregnancy 3 years ago. (my 2nd UP/UC)</p>

<p>Okay, this shows my belly at 18 weeks with #1, 2, and then 3. I think that's when I tend to hit the can't-deny-it stage:</p>
<p><a href="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/320387/width/500/height/700"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="320387" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/320387/width/500/height/700" style="; width: 500px; height: 700px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This one shows me at weeks 13, 16, and 19 during pregnancy #3:</p>
<p><a href="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/320386/width/500/height/700"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="320386" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/320386/width/500/height/700" style="; width: 500px; height: 700px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>And for the scary shot: 40w2d or so with #2, who was born at 40w5d:</p>
<p><a href="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/320390/width/200/height/400"><img alt="AppleMark" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="320390" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/320390/width/200/height/400" style="; width: 200px; height: 400px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>37 weeks exactly with #3, who was born the next day:</p>
<p><a href="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/320391/width/200/height/400"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="320391" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/320391/width/200/height/400" style="; width: 200px; height: 400px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I didn't get a digital camera until my second pregnancy so I don't have any convenient photos from my first pregnancy where I went to 42w2d and was really enormous everywhere (exactly how much fat can a person gain on one's face?).</p>

I popped at 18 weeks with my first. The next pic is at 20 weeks with #2 (pregnancy #4). Then me on Christmas at 14 weeks with #3 (pregnancy #6):<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320393/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="320393" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320393/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 290px"></a> <a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320394/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="320394" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320394/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 228px"></a> <a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320395/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="320395" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320395/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 267px"></a><br><br>
I got really lazy about taking belly pics at the end with #2, so the last one I have is at 30 weeks (he was born at 40w4d). Here's me at 30 weeks with #1, then #2:<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320398/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="320398" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320398/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 267px"></a> <a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320397/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="320397" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/content/type/61/id/320397/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 258px"></a>

<p>I seriously had no obvious belly until 24 weeks. My baby daddy left for a business trip, and when he came back he was shocked. My pants stopped fitting well around 12 weeks though, so I'm wearing a bella band in the picture with my pants undone.</p>

<p>I was lucky to have a dear friend, pregnant at the same time as me and living next door who was a professional photographer and her speciality was pregnancy photos. This photo underwater was taken around 36 weeks during my 2nd pregnancy. </p>

Too much as far as I'm concerned! <img alt="wink1.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/wink1.gif"> I think I dislike that the most...getting the fat face. I can see it's starting already, too.

Here's me at 19 weeks with #3:<a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/321193/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="321193" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/321193/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 328px"></a><br><br>
27 weeks, #3:<a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/321194/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="321194" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/321194/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 270px"></a><br><br>
And 37 weeks. Eek that was such a bad haircut. :p<a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/321195/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="321195" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/321195/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 267px"></a><br><br>
My body is so different this time around. Very curious to see how I look as I grow.
