Belly Pictures?
Who else will be taking belly pics? How often will you take them? Will you post them on here?

I will be honest, I took some the day I found out as a "starting block" of sorts, even though I'm a little bloated. Mostly because I couldn't help myself lol. I plan on taking them every Thursday as I hit each new week mark and I think I'll have to post them on here. I have loved looking at/stalking everyone else's belly pics. Only fair I return the favour now :P. Also I don't really plan on telling the world much of anything apart from close family, close friends and work people. The rest can find out when I get fat lol.

Re: Belly Pictures?
I plan on taking them weekly. I have a cute idea for doing them so I wont start till next week as Monday is my week tuning over day. I might talke a simple one tonight for my 4 week photo so I have it and then start next week with my project for my weekly shots. I am so excited to watch my belly grow!

Re: Belly Pictures?
I really doubt I will. I was going to with my son, but I forgot most weeks. I have a few from around the beginning of the 2nd trimester when I really started to show and that's it :) I'm much busier now with the toddler, so I probably won't get to it this time, either!

I did do nice maternity pictures with hubby that my mom took toward the end, so I'd like to do that again.

Re: Belly Pictures?
I will totally do them...I did last time....here are a couple, if you care to see :)


I had her a week later at 39w exactly...She flipped breech a month before her due date...so I had a scheduled C/S....

Re: Belly Pictures?
We did it with my son everytime there was a noticeable difference in size. Wore the same grey tank top each time. Plan to make a flip book! Maybe this time we'll do it more regularly...

Re: Belly Pictures?
stillwaiting, you're so cute pregnant! You were even brave and did them with the shirt up :) My stretch marks were so bad I had my mom take ONE picture with my shirt up during our maternity pics, just so I could look back at it someday, but there's no way any others were happening!

Re: Belly Pictures?
Haha I have no idea why the thread has a frowny face, I should probably fix that! But here is a night time 3w2d shot with a bloaty belly :D. Complete with cluttered dresser and mirror so old with little flecks in the surface that it looks like it's dirty as all heck. Of course it only shows up in the pictures :rolleyes:. I am still flat stomached in the morning but by afternoon/night I am already looking pregnant. Too bad none of it is baby :P. Maybe I should take pics in the morning but I already get up at 5 to leave for work, I'm not stuffing around longer doing belly shots lol.

Re: Belly Pictures?
Nel and Bella you are Soooooo cute :)

Nel, I seriously look now like I did in my 18W photos above!! :( ...is it wrong I'm super excited to dig out my maternity clothes so people think I'm pg and not fat??? haha :)

AMCD...it was my first baby...I got stretch marks near the end....but just under my belly, so I didn't even know I had them! They are pretty light now...we'll see what I do for pics this time around :)

Re: Belly Pictures?
You girls are adorable!

Oh my goodness, I feel like everyone already looks at me and thinks I'm pregnant! I never got rid of ANY of the belly from my son, so I have to look at least a couple months along. I was looking for a bathing suit that would cover it up a little earlier this summer and had trouble finding one. So I told my hubby that I was just going to wear my maternity suit and make up a due date and tell everyone I was a few months pregnant! I didn't do it, but I'm pretty sure they would have believed it!

Re: Belly Pictures?
Leah, I said that to DH already. I can blame my lil belly on a baby now and not just that im pudgy lol

I didnt get stretch marks either. Well not the kind you can see. They are there, in the skin and I can see them in my boobs and on the sides of my knees where the skin actually like separated and made the little "dents". But no color marks on the skin at all like people usually get. I am thankful for that cause look at that belly... it would have been a mess lol

Re: Belly Pictures?
I am not looking forward to stretch marks because I have a feeling I am in for a lot of them :eek:. I have stretch marks on my hips (granted they are pretty huge compared to the rest of me: I'm all butt :P) but I also have a lonely stretch mark on one of my boobs and I totally missed out on the genetic lottery in my family and can barely make a B cup. If I wasn't kidding myself I would totally be in an A. I forgot to take belly pics yesterday! Or at least didn't remember until I was half asleep :giggle:. DH can take some for me tonight!

Re: Belly Pictures?
I would love to do a weekly one, if I remember. I am going to try doing one in the same top each week and watch it expand.
