Getting close to the end of the 1st trimester! How those bellies looking?

So, I know many of us are almost at the end of the 1st trimester or already there. Just wondering if you are getting that bulgy belly that I seem to already have? Are you photo documenting your belly growth? We are and did with our last pregnancy and it has been fun to go back and see the transformation. It is also great to compare me then to now at the same weeks!

Re: Getting close to the end of the 1st trimester! How those bellies looking?

I have been the last 2 weeks. I meant to take one yesterday but will probably do it tonight for my 11 week pic. I'm excited to hit 12 weeks(in my head I feel safe after that). We did see baby again on Friday after I had a fall on Thursday. He/She was so much bigger than 2 weeks ago and was just dancing around and then all of a sudden went to sleep. Heartbeat was still 171.

I too am looking forward to the 12 week mark! It's like another milestone which brings me closer to meeting the precious miracle. Glad all is well after your fall. That was scary I am sure!

Thanks for sharing pictures!
I'm 8w 5d and I look about like your 9 w picture. That makes me feel so much better. I was worried I was popping out to fast.

Re: Getting close to the end of the 1st trimester! How those bellies looking?

8w 5d. At 5 weeks I could no longer fasten any buttoned bottoms. I can only wear a pair of loose yoga pants and some loose knit skirts that have fold over waistbands.
We haven't made the news public, so I feel self-conscious that my belly is looking big. I didn't realize I had gotten so vain about the size of my middle. But, I worked really hard the last 2 years to get my stomach pretty flat.
All my tops are pretty fitted around the waist, so it looks really obvious that I'm popping out. I've been buying loose tank tops and that camouflaged for a few weeks, but now you can really see my belly pushing on those too.
What seems weird to me is that my belly looks much smaller in the morning than it does by lunchtime.
You would think I would remember if that is normal, this being my 5th. But it's been 6 years, and I feel like it's all new again.
Do you all feel like you get bigger throughout the day?

Re: Getting close to the end of the 1st trimester! How those bellies looking?

I don't know if I notice a difference at all, but my eating habits are pretty much the same. You do forget things though. This is my 5th and my youngest is 4....longest time I have spent not pregnant. I wish I had documented his pregnancy with pics because I never remember when I really start showing and I wonder if I always looked like that or if there is a true difference. I don't work out or anything. I have recently lost about 10lbs after I came off birth control.

I feel pretty far behind. Lol

I am 9w tomorrow, but clothes are tight. Hard to button my normal pants even though I have lost weight due to morning sickness.

I am already about 20-30lbs over my ideal weight so not feeling like I new to document with pictures so early on. It's just fluff at this point and not the baby (for me). Lol
