Great looking bellies, gonna share my pics of belly shots and baby, hope you don't mind, sorry they are so large.
37 Weeks 5 Days:Natalie Rose
January 25, 2009
5 lbs 5 oz, 19"
9 lbs 5 oz, 21"
Pictures to come later, the end of my camera's cable ended up in a glass of water :eek:
I dont think either of you are huge. I could definately tell that you are preggo Mary. People will comment forever about something it really doesnt matter what it is or what you do. :rolleyes:
Its neat to see how much Natalie has changed in just a few months.
I have serious belly envy too! Y'all are beautiful! Keep on sharing those growing bellies!
I agree I'm totally green with belly envy! Post more ladies
Mudee, you had the cutest little preggo belly!!!!
I won't have a new belly pic until this weekend. I am 18 weeks tomorrow.
Mary - look at that boy grow! I think you look great...people will always say you are either too big or too small. I get a lot of "you are much to small to be so far along" :roll: Who made the rules of how big we are supposed to be??? That's like saying every woman should be a certain height to be "normal". It just doesn't work that way!
Shelly - I think you look fabulous!! When is your big u/s btw?
I won't be taking any more pics until this weekend for 20 weeks, but I've popped out a lot the last few days (as in, I don't have to take belly pics right after I eat to look pg ;)). DH said yesterday that he's not ready for me to have a round belly yet :rolleyes: I told him he's lucky he got to wait this long, lol!
Ash - My first noticeable "poppage" was right before 20 weeks too. Then I just had another one around 26 weeks. Can't wait to see your HALF-WAY pics!!!
Ash, I have my big u/s on April 2.
nine days from today.
Updated with my 14 1/2 week pic at the top! Seems to be going so fast! And yes, I am 100% in maternity pants now.
Cari - you look great. I'm still resisting the maternity pants, although I'm wearing all but 1 pair of pants unbuttoned now. I'm going to cave and buy some new pants any day now.
Here's my HALFWAY pic Plus there is one in my siggy.
versus 18 weeks
I just realized I was zoomed in on this one & not on the one 2 weeks ago...oh well, can't get everything right in photobucket :roll:
1/2 way awesome! And your belly is so cute! Cari your update is great too!
Cari! You've popped! Where have you been?
Loving all the cute bellies!!
Ashley - nice popping! Love it.
Love the bellies
Ready for the 20 weeks belly?
Woohoo, wasn't that exciting?
Okay, here's 19w6d last time vs this time
and how can my belly look like that in my weekly pics but look like this at 19w2d and 20w1d? So confused
:shrug: Glad to know I at least look pregnant occasionally!
Virginia - lookin' good girl! I also think I look way bigger in clothes. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense. You can definitely tell your are preggo! Yahoo for halfway
Everyone I know in real life tells me I "sort of look pregnant" since they know me. People I only kind of know haven't gotten up the nerve to ask yet.
I'm probably over halfway. DS came at 39 weeks and I'd be surprised if this one were later.
Virginia, you look great!!! You look very similar to how you looked last time.
You guys are backwards from me. My belly looks way bigger naked than it does in clothes, haha. I still haven't met any strangers with the balls to ask me if I'm pregnant. Any time now though... I went out shopping with my DH and my parents yesterday, and I caught a glimpse of myself in the reflection of windows, and it's pretty obvious now. It's still only super obvious if I'm wearing shirts that are cinched beneath the bust. In other types of shirts, I could still just have a big gut, hahaha.
you are sooooo lucky. I haven't been able to say that it is just being fluffy for a few months now and I am not even 20 weeks yet. Depending on the material and the design of the shirt that I am wearing, I may look big or I may look HUGE!! when DH gets home I have to try to remember to get him to take my 18 wk photo so that I can post in all of the proper spots.
Have I mentioned how excited I am for all you guys to have your babies?!?! I'm excited to have my own OF COURSE, but there are soooo many of you due so close together. It will be sooo fun once you guys start popping them out.
Aww I looove bellies! I look at myself sometimes in the mirror and I'm like I TOTALLY SEE IT...and then i'm like..eww..no, totally not baby! haha. I'm bad, I haven't been taking weekly pictures but I'm not all cute and skinny so my belly doesn't compare! Perhaps tonight I'll break down and make DH- I'm curious to start tracking it now...I suppose it also doesn't help that all the baby books tell me how "your pregnancy isn't noticeable to outsiders yet..." That doesn't help with the fat vs. baby thing! haha but I suppose other people were showing at 8 and a half weeks so why can't I right?! haha!
have you looked at my pregnancy album on myspace? I was so not skinny in any sense of the word, but I started my weekly pics at four weeks. I was one of those that popped extremely early.
It will be sooo fun once you guys start popping them out.
You get to "pop" yours out first!
When I was pregnant with Raymond a co-worker told me that unless you have personally given birth vaginally you should never refer to having a baby as "popping one out". I don't agree, but I think you will view the phrase a little differently after. Hopefully you won't have to squeeze a 14.5" head through 36" hips!
Damn, I do have 36" hips Now lets just see how big this head is....
Hahaha, and I was totally laughing when I typed "popping them out" because it just seemed so gross and inappropriate... But hey, "gross and inappropriate" sums me up in a nutshell.
Well, hopefully your DH doesn't have a 95th percentile head he likes to pass on. My head, on the other hand, is barely larger than Raymond's at this point. I'm kind of hoping at least one kid takes after me!
My friend's DH has a huge head and she was really stressed that their LO would have a big noggin too, but he ended up being tiny, so you never know. :shrug: Plus she ended up with a C-section anyway, so it didn't matter.
SO I finally broke down and had DH take some belly pictures! I'm all set to load them up to my computer and the cord Dh thought was for my camera is not! RAR. So now I'm on the mad hunt for my camera cord, but unfortunately it isn't going to happen now because I had him take the pictures right before I had to leave to go get the girls from school! Soooo...Maybe DH will be super nice to me and search for my camera cord so I can finally up-load these darn pictures haha!
Dana had a huge noggen when she was born, didn't fit the newborn hats and some of the 3 - 6 month ones didn't fit right either. I had an all natural birth with her. Her birth weight was 7lbs 13.5 oz.
Natalie was born with a tiny head, its difficult to find a hat that fits her even now and she's grown alot, I was induced and used some Nitrous oxide to help dull the pain. She was 5lbs 5oz.
Interesting to see the apparent pain difference. My mom said I was the easy one because I had a small head.
Raymond's already out of toddler hats and I'm still in kids' hats. His head is 49cm now and mine is 52cm.
Here's 20 weeks vs ~21 weeks
I look much more pregnant with a shirt on.
I'm due to pop soon. Here are some from last time. 22 weeks vs 23 weeks
Holy crap... I haven't popped that much in a week!!! Mine has been very gradual growth.
You look adorable!
Aww, thanks everyone! I should post an angle showing my weird belly button and old stretch marks. The side view hides them.
oh lordy! These bellies are too cute! I just hope i'm a 10th as cute as you gals! As for size, tell me about it! My DH's shoulder's were so wide at birth, they almost had to break them to get him out! I'm a little worried....LOL
So so so cute!!
Okay, I promised. My old stretch marks in all their glory.
Also, I was trying on some of my summer dresses to see if I have anything I can wear for Easter and... where'd my belly go?
I think I'll go with the purple one just because it makes me kind of look pregnant. The white one you really can't tell at all.
You all look great I am sooooo jealous, I love the summer dresses Virginia. Wish I could wear mine but its far too cold here still.
I'm sure it's not as cold here, but it's still in the 40s-50s usually... not quite summer dress weather. I'll have to layer over one for Easter, but I feel compelled to pretend there's spring-like weather on Easter. Hopefully it won't snow this year. :rolleyes: I'll try to send some warm weather your way once I see some.
well, the house fell through. guess we have to figure out a new plan now. oh well. everything happens for a reason, right? I am trying to convince myself of that one.
:bigarmhug: I'm so sorry! You going to start looking for another one?
we can't. we have to move out of this house and that means we will have to rent somewhere. of course, that means a year lease since we won't live in an apartment. so at least a year delay.
Oh Shelly, that sucks!!! :confused: It's hard to find, but DH and I managed to find a landlord when we lived in IL who actually preferred not to lease for a specific period of time. He preferred just a month-to-month sort of thing, so maybe you could find something like that so you're not trapped into a lease? It was perfect for us when we decided to move. He just needed one month notice, and we were good to go.
Okay here is my really huge popped out belly at 15 weeks 2 days. This was two weeks ago but it is the most recent one that I have loaded on my computer at the moment. I still have people speculating about twins but that is not the case in less one is always hiding when we listen to the hearbeat because we have only heard one so far! I gained back the 4 1/2 pounds that I lost plus one more. So technically I only weigh a pound more than when I got pregnant.
Shelly I'm so sorry to hear about the house! I'll be praying that something else works out for you.
Shelly - That sucks about the house! I am sorry that it fell through. I hope you can find something like Mary mentioned so you can look for a house that will be yours.
Kaci - You look so cute!
Shelly - :bighug: I'm so sorry to hear that.
Kaci - You look great!
I already posted in the main chat thread, but obviously I have a new belly pic in my siggy for your enjoyment.
WOW! :eek: You really did pop Virginia!
:bellyrubs: You look great!
