Looking at those belly pics and reading the "I'm bigger with this one" comments made me go back and look at my pg pics! When we have another I may not be able to stand up straight

40ish weeks with Addy on left and 40w4d with Reagan on right

LOL! I got big so fast with Kody, I thought for sure I was gonna be huge at the end. With Ethan (my first), I didn't really start showing for real until almost 7 months. Kody, I looked pregnant by 4 months. Haha. But looking at pictures, I was about the same size at the end. Weird!

At the end with all my pregnancy's, I look pretty much the same. Except with my 2nd, he was my biggest baby at almost 10lbs at birth. I could not drive the car anymore due to my belly and my arms could not reach around the front of my belly to hold my hands, lol......I was extremely big!! All my others, about the same at the end, it was my but that looked smaller in some and bigger in others, lol

Carey you were so tiny with Reagan. I'm already feeling big so I'm worried about how big I'll be.

Picture on the right is with Jacob and left is with Jackson. I think mine look similar.

I don't have a comparison yet, but I do know that my bloating is a lot worse this time and I think I will definitely show faster this time around. I am nervous about how big I will get, but it will be worth it.

Oooh fun, I want to join in
You ladies look AMAZING by the way!

Here I am at 21 weeks with Clyde, and my 17 week photo. I'm already bigger now at 17 weeks although it's kinda hard to tell with a baggy shirt vs. a tight fitting shirt. If you look at the tip of my belly compared to where my boobs are, you can see my belly sticks out further now than it did before at 21 weeks.


Here is my last picture at 38 weeks, 4 days before we lost Clyde. I'm thinking I will be bigger this time around, but we shall see.

He was 6 lbs 11 ounces so he was small but I think that's about average. I'm probably lucky I'm so tall. It gives extra abdominal space that the petite ladies don't have.

This was 3 days before I had Marsi.


This was me at 11 weeks with her. My bloat is already bigger than this most nights.

Aw so fun to look at! Amy, you were pretty tiny with Clyde. Is it bittersweet looking at the photos of yourself when you were pregnant with him?

Since you all are posting photos, I will too.
Here's a day shy of 40 weeks with Ethan:



And with Kody, except this is 38 weeks. I can't find the pic we snapped of me right before delivery. Oh well, it's probably on my husband's camera (which is on the east coast with him).

^ CUTE!!

Yes, it is bittersweet looking back at those photos but I'm very glad I have them. Sometimes the reminders are painful, but other times I need them just to remember! I used to look at my bump pictures often shortly after losing Clyde. I bawled my eyes out but it was something I needed at the time. I would be very heartbroken if I ended up losing all my pictures.

Yay for baby bumps

You all look great! Joy, you carried your boys the same way I carried my girls, all belly, all out in front - my sister always told me that you couldn't tell I was pregnant from the back, that when I turned sideways she was always like "whoa"...lmao! I seriously do not know how I balanced myself

Amy, I am so glad that you shared those! You were tiny with Clyde, 6lb 11 oz is what I would consider normal at about 39 weeks (I think that was around when you delivered him, right?). Reagan was 7lb 9 oz at 41 weeks and Addy was 8lb 10 oz at 40w4d...I'm scared to have #3, lol!

Haha yes, all out front with my boys! It was kinda fun turning around backwards in the mirror and seeing that I didn't look pregnant from the back, either. Maybe it's vain of me, but I liked that!

Carey I opened this thread thinking that I'd missed an announcement from you and you were already pregnant with #3!!!

It's so much fun to see all the bump pictures. I didn't take many with Regan... I hate having my picture taken and I'd put on so much weight before I got pregnant with her that I felt like it took forever to actually look pregnant and not just fat. I kind of regret it now... I'll take more next time!

LOL, not yet Becky, we are waiting at least until Jan/Feb to start TTC again and even then we might wait a little longer. I can't get my IUD out until December because the doc didn't have any openings, so that will make it easy not to cheat
