Yay for a belly pic, Sandra!
Oh, I posted one at 5 weeks
I think it was like 4 pages ago, page 68?
Almost to the 2nd trimester! :woohoo:
PS) I've shrunk a bit! Bye-bye bloat!
Looking good, you do seem a little less puffy, how you feeling as you approach 2nd trimester?
Well I've been feeling good! Still exhausted after doing little things here and there, but I've learned that resting on the couch for 30 minutes helps! I'm very excited for the 2nd trimester to start! This pregnancy is going by so fast!
Wow Laura I can't believe you at 12 weeks already! Time flies so fast doesn't it? your LO will be here before you know it! And if you are anything like me, you will be thinking about baby #2 too! I loved being pregnant and am really enjoying being a momma! I'm sure you will too! You look great!
You look great!
Thinking about #2 already, Shelley? You caught the bug!
Looking great Laura and Sandra!!!
Shelley caught the bug! It's hard not to with all you baby-crazy ladies around here starting to TTC again! I now can't wait to TTC next fall!
Oh, I freely admit I'm a terrible influence. DH isn't helping. I'm really starting to wonder if he's going to want a big family or if he'll go back to being reluctant after we have a third.
eeveryone looks great! And really, don't worry about weight. I gained 60 lbs with Kiernan, and after I had him and the bloat came off, I lost 40lbs. I'm stuck with these extra 20lbs, but that's because of my insulin issues.
No baby bug for me! My hands are FULL with one baby! LOL
Oh, hey! I should get a pre-pregnancy pic. I'll try to post one soon.
Sandra - yay for a belly pic! Can't wait to see you grow
Virginia - yes a pre-pregnancy pic would be a great idea!
Laura - I spent waaaaay too much of my pregnancy stressing over my weight gain & it wasn't worth it. You'll gain what you'll gain for the most part. Yay for almost being in the 2nd tri!
yeah I didn't think it was possible to catch the bug so quickly! Especially after I had just pushed him out I was convinced I never wanted to do that again! lol I was actually suprised though that DH was the one who brought up having another one! And he was the one who had seconds thoughts of even having the first! ha! Time will tell I guess! I will definatly keep you all informed of when we do decide to TTC again We both agree that we definatly want to try for a girl but if we get another boy thats ok too. Just isso stinkin cute! I am working on getting some pics up here for everyone.
Here you go, ladies... 10.5 months PP and ready to go.
here, for comparison, is a pic the day I got my BFP with Raymond (and 39w, I happened to have them combined like that on photobucket).
I definitely have more of a belly now than before the boys! Of course, I actually have breasts now, too.
Virginia how do you get so thin after 2 kids? Looking good.
Goodness gracious Virginia... You are TINY!!!
yeah... I'm 5'4" and 100lbs. Pretty tiny. My waist was only 23" before I had the boys. :eek:
You looks awesome, Laura!
Hmmm... Contemplating doing a belly pic since today is 4 weeks. I started at 4 weeks with DS. Maybe I'll take one in a little bit after DS goes to sleep.
Oh Mary please do!
Mary - do it!
Virginia - you're such a petite little thing!! Amazing how you have such big boys!
Laura - you look great! You remind me of me prego I bet we're kind of similar in size I' 5'6" and around 130-135 normally. I gained faast and furious and had no issues dropping the weight. I ate when I was hungry b/c I was pregnant and figured my body knew best!
Yeah, we're very similar in body size. I'm 5' 7 1/2". My appetite is back to normal. I don't have that EXTREME hunger anymore. My doc said that it would calm down and it sure has.
MARY!!! I think you should take a 4 week belly pic. It drives me crazy that I don't have a 4 week pic, but I didn't know I was pregnant til 4 1/2 weeks.
Mary - Definitely take a belly pic!
Virginia - you are tiny! I am the same height and was 117 when I got pregnant.
Yeah, that's around where I "should" be. It is a healthy weight for me, though. (If you need proof consider my successful BFing and normal cycles. Sorry, I'm used to people having issues with it.) No complaints here. I don't mind being tiny. Most of the time.
Okay girls... I took the plunge! DH took this a few days ago, right at 4 weeks, but I just got it off my camera tonight.
It's pretty cool... My 4 week belly pic doubles as a 12 month post-partum pic!!
What a tiny belly Mary, can't wait to watch it grow again!
Mary you look great can't wait to watch it grow!
Here is mine 23 weeks today!
My hairy belly hehe!
sorry the pic is so small....was trying to resize it and I don't know what happen :confused:
Grenet! Your 23 belly looks more like my 33 week belly! Hahaha... Okay, not quite that big, but there are definitely TWO in there!! I can't wait to see them!
Ah, Greda! You look great!
Mary - You are so stinkin' tiny!!!
Mary - we look pretty similar. Lovely belly-to-be.
Greda - You look wonderful!
I wonder if I'll still carry high this time, or if it will be lower since everything is all stretched out?
Mary - Raymond was low and Alex was very low. I'm kind of worried. Very low is uncomfortable. Low is great, though. I like being able to breathe.
You know... It was a weird thing. I carried high, but I still had bladder issues throughout most of the pregnancy (probably starting around the beginning of the 2nd trimester). I basically couldn't empty my bladder completely without a lot of effort on my part, changing positions and trying to relax completely. It was weird, and did NOT help the fact that I was already peeing constantly.
Greda - What a wonderful belly, definitely can tell you are carrying twins though.
I carried both high, the shortness of breath and the heartburn were horrible.
Oh I had nearly forgotten the heartburn! I don't remember having a HUGE issue with SOB, maybe a little. But the heartburn... Ugggh! I remember waking up in the middle of the night because I had refluxed stomach acid into my mouth, eww eww eww. Note to self: No eating within a few hours of bedtime (when I'm big), and eat smaller/more frequent meals (something I've never been great at).
Yeah, I had very little HB both times. And next to no shortness of breath. But oh boy, the pressure!
I think one of the major reasons I had heart burn is my appetite tended to kick into high gear at 10 or 11 pm when I was pregnant.
Weird - my heartburn seems worse before I eat.
Here's my 32 (and a few days) week belly:
You are looking good, can't believe you are already past 32 weeks!
Erica! You look wonderful!
I went to a wedding tonight. Here's my 5 week pic for comparison... Same dress. :eek:
ETA: Whoa! My belly isn't the only thing growing! Geez, my "ladies" have noticeably gotten bigger!
Laura - What an adorable belly.
You both look wonderful! I can't wait to join in again.
Laura- that's a fun comparison picture!
and a comparison shot (thanks for the idea Laura!):
Erica, Laura and Sandra you all look so great!
Sandra - You appear to be rounding out, exciting! Looking good.
Looking good Laura & Sandra!
