4 weeks 5 days- lower stomach sticking out a bit!! feeling bloated/pufffy (up three pounds in water weight)
5 weeks! starting to bloat even more... ignore the just rolled out of bed look (because I did)
6 weeks (tattoo side)
6 weeks!!! super bloated- there's definitely like an inch and a half of bloat/fluff/squish on top of my abs that is normally only like half an inch of squish... ready for that part to deflate soon!
7 weeks.... I think bloating is the highest it has ever been at this point-- everything feels squishy/full of water... can't wait for it to go down !!!
8 weeks today- in my ninth week- I think bloating is at it's maximum now.... and it is GOING to go down back to normal by 10 weeks because I am so uncomfortable!!!
9 weeks. water retention is going down a bit, but bloating is still there... I can still see my abs though! feeling super icky (excuse the just rolled out of bed face and hair!)
I missed the 10th week because I was getting married and was super busy!!!
there's a huge difference from 9 weeks to 11 weeks, this is actually 11 weeks 2 days :
definitely looking like it's lower... which means its uterus not just bloat!

I'm going to take it out once it needs to come out- my friend kept hers in until she was 6 months and has no scarring/stretching marks from it- and just got it pierced again after. I <3 my belly ring... i think my belly looks so weird without it!
They make pregnancy piercings for your belly that you can buy online. I have used one or my first two and will again for my third. It works great.....it is really long and is a plastic tubing so it can move as you grow and stretch. I have never had any stretch marks or scarring with it.
hmm maybe i will get a preggo ring... idk. I kind of think I want to wean myself off the belly ring-- even though it sounds crazy I think i look thinner with the belly ring- so after baby I want to get my stomach looking amazing without belly ring- and THEN get it repierced
