Weekly belly pic thread (12/31 - 1/6)

I expect lots of bellies this week, since I never posted one of these last week! There should be lots of growth from all the holiday food... I mean rapid baby growth now that we're all hitting the second trimester. Wink

I love the comparison Kia. You have definitely popped more this time.

Okay, I like the comparison idea, so the first one (on the left) is 17 weeks from baby #2, and the next two are 16 weeks from this pregnancy (#6),

I'm just a bit bigger this go around - well chubbier!! I guess that's to be expected at this point!! Wink

I can't believe how bad I am at pictures this time. I usually take one every week. I REALLY need to take one this week!

Most of my "belly" is up high like where my guts are (and probably way too much food) but at least it looks roundish from the side under a shirt! From the frot it looks lumpy even if you ignore my love handles haha

Here I am at 17w1d.

For some reason I feel like that pic makes me look huge...perhaps because I saw it next to my photo from 10 weeks ago...

I'm going to blame it on the zoom...ya, that's it. GULP.

Home gym Smile I WISH I was at the real gym!

Heather: I agree the first pic almost doesn't look like the same body as your full body one. Strange! You look great though!

Great bellies girls!

I just tried on my maternity bathing suit and had to take a pic. I look really big I think. LOL. The chest part of the bathing suit is none too big anymore!

this is my pic. DH always takes pics at a weird angle and I look much larger than I am OR smaller (as was the case this time...)

I use a tripod with a timer...which is why I get toddler bombs. I got a good toddler bomb last week. I should find that pic. It's funny!

I know how you feel with DS I did pics every week. With DD it wasn't every week, but it was pretty often. I have done 2 with this one... Maybe I can get one the end of this week.

Heather: ROFL! Love K's guest appearance. Also love love your suit, where did you find such a cute maternity suit??

Patience: you look great!

I definitely took more pics with my first but I figure if I get one a month with this one, that'll be more than enough for the baby book

Baby book - you mean you still do those? Yeah, my first and second have one, but none after that. My first has hers filled out for the first year. My second has the first few months filled out. After that, life ceases to exist...

LOL Laurie, I don't have one at all! I know myself too well and knew I wouldn't keep up with it. I was certain I would not manage to do enough for the youngers either so I never started. Yes I am pathetic. :rolleyes:

The bathing suit is Thyme Maternity brand. I think it might be just in Canada. I got it for $5 on the swap & shop. I don't normally buy used bathing suits but it wasn't worn before so SCORE.

OK here is today's pic

Heather I agree. The bathing suit is so cute. And for $5. Total score!

Everyone has cute bumps! Keep them coming!

I have a picture taking obsession so I make my kids a "First Year" photo book. I try to include big milestones (luckily I'm a pretty avid journal-er too so that helps when I need to go back to look up dates, or at least approx. dates), birth story (G-rated, just the big details), and lots and lots of pictures of their first year. They are the biggest pain to do but I love them so much after the fact and hopefully they will too! I also do a yearly family photo book so I'm just always in the habit of writing down stuff to include in that.

Super cute! I love that top!

It's actually a non-maternity top, but I have only worn it like 2 times in 5 years. I didn't really like the way it looked. I tried it on and decided it looks way cuter as a maternity top! It's super stretchy. I can probably get a good 3 more months out of it.

Grrr. I still look like I've just been skipping the gym (and I have!). I'll take a pic later. I'm chubbier but people I see every day were shocked when I announced this. I was like "yup, I'm not just fat! Hooray!"

I think that's 12 and 14 weeks. Something's happening but not much. It does always take forever for me. Plus I'm almost a whole month behind most of you... From the front I just look really lumpy, not round.

Ugh, it super hard to be in that "chubby" stage before you actually pop. I always feel so weird during that time. Thankfully I have popped, but I still have to be careful about what I wear. If I wear something tight and stretchy I look pregnant. If I wear something baggy, I look like I'm simply putting on some extra insulation. Even when I wear something that I think makes me look "very pregnant," people who see me every week and KNOW that I'm pregnant, are like, "yeah, I see a little something there. You're so small." "What???"

Sandra, that shirt really does make a great preggy top! I actually prefer to wear stretchy things that are non-maternity for awhile in the beginning too... and sometimes at the end. Maternity stuff usually just make me feel frumpy because it just hangs like a tent until there is actually a decent belly there.

WOW! You're good at masking a pregnancy! I can't wait to see you POP!
