I told you! I missed mine immediately. Although I did enjoy my new-found freedoms (shaving my legs, tying my shoes, clipping my toenails, etc), lol...

ROFL I though this exact same thing!

What about... being able to put your pants on like a normal human being?? Wink

Awwww, I totally miss my belly and the little kicks! It is nice to clip my toenails again. I am glad that I was huge during the summer so I didn't have to worry about tying my shoes all the time - flip flops were wonderful!

Laura & Virginia - you both look great!

Yes! I've really been struggling with this lately, thanks to pelvis pain. I'm nearing the point where I need to sit down and put them on... Ugh.

Oh! I clipped my toenails this morning and it was weird being able to reach my toes! DH likes being able to pull me in close for hugs. The other night we were spooning in bed and he could fit his arm around my entire waist... Then he said, "This is weird!" ROFL

DH and I aren't using any BCPs... We'll prevent for a while, but I wouldn't be surprised if we TTC before the end of the year. :eek:

Sandra - I'm with you didn't miss my belly. And while I'm looking forward to being pregnant again I'm much more about HAVING the baby than being prego. I didn't have a hard pregnancy besides the normal discomfort but being pregnant isn't my favorite thing on earth I'm definitely not someone who loves every second of it. I'll be thankful for another healthy one but if I could skip it I probably would!

I updated my original post - #35 - with my 15 week belly pictures, but I'll also post the 15 week picture here for those that don't feel like sifting back through old posts (if you want to see a comparisson you'll have to, though).

Anyway, here is my 15 week bump!

Baby bump @ 15 Weeks (158 lbs):

I started off at 151 lbs. I've decided I have the stupidest looking belly forming. I've always had that dip by my belly button and it looks silly! I know it'll all even out soon enough and I'll have a nice bump, but for now it sucks! :rolleyes:

Yeaaah, that's what I like to hear. And at only 2 weeks post-partum! Hahahaha. Love it. Hopefully it won't take 14 cycles this time around!!

I'm overdue for a belly pic. I'll try to post one soon. I've been a total lazy bum this pregnancy. Sad

Pamela: look at your cute belly!

Laura: TTCing before the end of the year isn't that crazy Wink We quit preventing when DD was 8 months old (of course, it took until she was 15 months to conceive, but still we tried! lol). I missed my belly and kicking immediately too but my DH was like yours and enjoyed the lack of belly afterwards immensely.

You girls make me laugh. Even at my biggest, I could clip my toenails and shave my legs no problem(?). :shrug: I must be a freak. I actually painted my toes right a few days before my induction so they would look nice.

Laura - With how long it took you to get Claire, I don't blame you for wanting to TTC early.

Pam - Still so small, but you look to be rounding out, can't wait to see more growth.

Shared on my BB so I thought I'd throw it in here too (taken today @ 14w4d). I really do look bigger IRL and have gained 6 lbs already :eek: even though half of that is in my bra!

Awe, thanks. I definitely look a lot fatter (especially from the front) but agree not very preggo looking yet. I'm finally feeling great! No nausea whatsoever and only a little less energy than normal (but what do ya do...this baby makin' business is exhausting ;)) Thanks for asking!

I can't believe how tiny you are!

pico83 (not verified)

Ashley - wow. I wonder if you have another tiny little girl in there. Wink You look great! They're not very big at 14w (even if they'll be big later) so I hope you aren't stressing not showing more.

In case you're curious, here's my 4w vs 14w vs 24w

I'm expecting LO to be 7.5 to 8lbs at birth...

Virginia: you look great! Love the comparison pics. I can definitely feel my uterus growing plus I'm pretty on-track to how I looked at this point last time so I'm not worried. Whatever gender I'm growing, he/she will probably be another small one! Thanks for the reassurance *hugs*

I love the bellies!

Honestly, I'm completely jealous of your little peanut. Wink I wish I could still carry mine easily. Sad I have to let Alex climb the stairs on his own because he's too heavy for me, especially now that he can't sit on my hip very easily.

Mary: you look adorable! Seriously, such a perfectly round belly Smile

Katie/Erica/Sandra: you girls are way too sweet :giveflower: I've gained somewhere around 6-7 lbs so I don't feel like I look that great. Thanks for making my day!

Aww, Lauren your belly looks cute.

Dont worry, in a few more weeks, you'll "pop" and then you'll wish you were still small enough to see your feet Blum 3

Ashley - You are so tiny, how tall are you?
My belly never got very big I blame it on me being fairly tall (5'7")

Virginia - Love the conparison shots, you are looking good.

Mary - Cute belly, 34 weeks already? Really?

pico83 (not verified)

27 weeks... #3 then Alex and Raymond

The camera angle varies a bit (Raymond's was taken from much lower) but I'm feeling better about my belly size after looking at those. I still kind of expect to measure behind on Monday, though.

I'm only 5'3 actually. I got pretty dang big last time but just not the first half of my pregnancy. I think my abs hold everything in pretty tight until they just can't take the pressure anymore then I explode! Wink It helps that I have pretty open hips too

Virginia: you look really similar in all the pictures IMO. You look great!

Virginia - I'd say the angle in the Raymond picture makes you look bigger, but this time looks really similar to the Alex picture. Hopefully you won't measure behind.

Ashley - Yeah I have pretty open hips too, guess that could be another reason I was so small.

Virginia - That belly seems to carry very similar every time, hmmmmm maybe girls do carry differently. You have to get pregnant with a girl next time so we can compare Wink

We were doing belly pics on my board so here is my 17 week pic. I've definitely grown over that last week and a half. My uterus is finally starting to poke out a little so it isn't all "squished guts" belly Wink

I did a progression for you ladies

Wow, that makes me feel big!
