Yeah, it was really that big, I gained 60 lbs with him and it was pretty much ALL in my belly area. The stretchmark aftermath was frightening.

Only pics I have on this computer from when I was pregnant with DD, I was 34 weeks in these...I actually lost a couple pounds between these and when I had her.




And with the new nut...you can't tell I'm pregnant at all yet, my flabby belly is covering it all up
This is at 5 weeks
Beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL!! I received all my stretch marks with my first baby. Didn't get really big but I'm prown to stretchmarks. Started getting them when I was 14. I wear them with pride now. Call me Tiger lady!

Think We will go every 3-4 weeks this time. I think being your first, every week would be fun!

Re: Belly pics!

I think I'm going to do either every 2 weeks or every 4 weeks. With DS, I wouldn't let anyone near me with a camera because I felt so huge and there isn't a single picture of me pregnant, not even from my baby shower...and now, I really regret it I only got a handful when I was pregnant with DD, my fav is the handprints on my belly. This time around, I think I'm going to go get pics with the kids & my belly at some point.

Re: Belly pics!

Ok, here you go. 6ish weeks (I took this last Thursday)

Front view:



Side view:



And measurement. Last time I was up to 55" around at my belly button the week he was born, so I thought it would be sort of fun to see the progress this time around. Starting at 33":




And for fun, here was 3 days before Caleb was born (so you can see what I have to look forward too, LOL):



I'll get 7 week ones tomorrow, not that anything has changed. But I want to get in the habit of taking weekly ones.

I highly suggest getting professional pics done especially with the older siblings!! This was the first time i had professional pics done and i look back over then all the time, i adore them and she'll love seeing where she came from someday!! I'll be having them done again this time around, i was about 37 weeks here,

Re: Belly pics!

Love looking at your cute bellies! Mine is far from cute anymore but it does have it's own beauty and now 7 stories to go with it. I have alot of excess skin. Wasn't born with skin that bounces back.

Here we are at 7 weeks 0 days today.


And a little help pulling the excess skin up. Can see the baby bump now

Re: Belly pics!

I won't have any kind of bump until at least 20 weeks. But from 20 weeks on I just get HUGE!!! I'll try to get a pic up later of my nothing of a belly. I'm 4 weeks 4 days today.
