Do we have any belly pics yet?!

I took my first ones today. I'm already bloaty but thought I might as well take my first ones now before it gets any worse so I have a general starting point.

These are mine from last time, WHEW I got huge! 50 pounds goes a long way, lol

If you can't tell, I'm a big fan of belly pics. Has anyone else taken some starter ones they'd like to share?!

I don't start until 12 weeks, but I gained quite a bit of weight pre-preg, so I've looked about 3 months pg since before I even got my bfp. :oops: I'm big on belly pics too though, once I hit 12 weeks I take one every other week.

Here is the abbreviated version (every 4 weeks instead of every 2) of my belly with DS1

And with DS2 (there are fewer pics because I didn't make it to 40 weeks with him)

I kinda have one but havent uploaded it- photobucket is crappy on my comp lately.
I feel so bloated though- I wish I would have taken ummm a week before my BFP hahhaha... I looove belly pics- even though I feel "gross" I love looking back on them, and wish I would have taken them earlier with DS to know what my REAL starting belly looked like hehe

Aw thanks girls you're sweet! You should see me from the front lol it's not as flattering which is why I didn't take one from that angle! I am jealous of the other bellies!!

a lot of people use picassa for free photo hosting services.

I had to switch to flickr because photobucket wasn't resizing my photos when I shared and it was driving me crazy. I used to be able to get it to work if I logged out and then logged in again, but no such luck.

So here I am at 5 weeks in a couple of different positions. I'm going to do the laying down one every 5 weeks and the standing up one weekly.

You guys are crazy. Plus I'm sucking it in and tucking things into my pants. And thats in the morning, beforethe bloat sets in.

I went out shopping for "flowy" shirts today because I feel like my gut is sticking out from bloat so bad and since nobody knows I'm preggo I look like the fat one @ work. Its sucky!

It'll be nice when its that noticable preg belly stage.. We will all be lookin looovely this summer huh?!hehe

Well Cait I havent been that thin since I was 21 and pg with my first baby! So considering this is your 2nd you are on your way to looking very smashing when you have your 6th lol! If you and dh chose to go that route, I think you said he was done after this right? Maybe its quads!

My older sister isn't too thin normally, then when she was pregnant she has this shirt that says:

"I'm not fat, I'm pregnant!
...and a little fat."

I thought it was hilarious Smile

I was a lot heavier starting out with DS- livin the college life and eating horribly- eeek.
I recently gained like 10lbs+ right before getting pregnant so that's kind of annoying- i wanted to start at a lot less
Lori- thats super funny! Im such a shirt-slogan hater- I HATE shirts taht say "funny" stuff- yet I can see myself buying that..especially to wear at work so it wont be awkward looking all chunky and people being afraid to ask. heheh

Ok, I'll give this a go. But keep in mind I'm taking hefty doses of progesterone and it causes serious bloating. That's my excuse and I'm sticking by it! . . . :bullcrap:

Thanks Tiffany Smile It's there! I have this huge roll of skin from my 2 c sections and I have it under the sweats! And with thebloat, it makes my stomach stick out alot more than usual. But it is what it is:) I use to be real heavy. Before I haad my son. (went on a major diet 9 months after he was born) Actually I weighed 151lbs the day I gave birth to my daughter in 2005, and I weighed 153 THE DAY I FOUND OUT I was pg with ds! So it is frustrating that I am starting this pg out 12 lbs heavier than I was with dd.

OMG...all you ladies look so incredibly fabulous! I recently lost 30lbs and still look bigger than all of you lol. I'll have to upload my pics tomorrow.

I'm so thrilled so many of you are on the belly pic train this early! Usually a lot went so this topic doesn't start picking up ti way later. I personally take weekly pics and love seeing others also!

You look great!! I was like 156lbs when I got pregnant with DS- eeek, after I had him it was diet time! I was 200lbs when I gave birth to him- which sucked!!!
I got down to 128 was the lowest I could ever go- but gained almost 20lbs back, argh, I'm feeling so bloated already it's gross, like I need something to suck my gut in!! This is the worst stage ever- haha.
