This is a silly post but I just had to mention it because I just took some pretty hilarious pictures of myself. For my monthly digitals at the agency, they ask me to 'push out' my belly to really show off the bump. Last month, pushing out really didn't make much difference and I still had a pretty flat stomach. I am going in tomorrow so I decided to test it out tonight and there is a huge difference! If I am standing normally, I have a small bump but it's not super noticeable. However, if I push out, I suddenly look hugely pregnant. It doesn't look like fat pushing out either, it's more like I can use my muscles to push the baby and uterus out front. It makes me look about 8 months pregnant. I took pictures of myself standing normally, then a picture of me pushing out and a picture of me sucking in for comparison. The results are hilarious. So, uh, now you have a new activity to try at home when you're as bored as me.

I suppose I could push out, I would look ridiculous though as I have a sway back to beging with.

I can't suck in though.

I can't push out or pull in anymore, would love to see the photos.

With me my posture makes me look bigger or smaller.

I'm maxed out with pushing out! I was joking with my friend and she told me here s no difference except my sides contract a bt... Hmmm.. I'll take it!!

Also this morning, normally when I first get up out of bed... My belly looks kind of normal. But when I get to my stairs... BAM.. There it is..

I can still "suck it in" a little, not as much as before though. I can definitely push my belly out a little too

This happens to me -- my tummy isn't that big when I first get up, but then gravity takes over and I start to look pregnant a few minutes later.

I can definitely make my bump look bigger if I push it out. From the front I'm still not showing all that much.

I can suck in a little bit but it more shifts my belly and makes it go away. No pushing out at all...
