Belly Beautiful: 12 weeks

If you were here with me during my last pregnancy, you know that I love tracking the belly growth...I mean baby growth. I think pregnant ladies are beautiful and it's just fascinating to me to see how much it can change in 4 weeks. I'm a big fan of wearing fitted clothes rather than the big tent maternity wear. I feel cuter, and personally, I think it makes me look smaller!

The only regret I have this time is that I didn't take a picture when I was down to my thinnest (124 lbs. with clothes on) right before I got pregnant. Between stopping nursing and just plain being pregnant, I weighed in at 131 at my 10 week apt. with the doc. Not bad, and actually better than last time.

I don't have the same shirt I wore last time, so I'm just wearing the most fitted shirt I own.

I've definitely shifted a little, and I'm popping out a little quicker this time around, but I am ok with that. I'm still able to comfortably wear my smallest jeans. At least for now. Gotta love lower rise pants.

Your so funny..I love it! Maybe b/c the "weight" has shifted, you are having a girl? Have you been more sick, less sick, the same? I am sooo excited!

How did you get the tilt of your head and your smile so precisely the same?

Na, my weight's shifted because I've had 1 baby and I've nursed. Just not quite as perky all the way around. haha.

And th. that was all in picture choice. I honestly chose those specific pictures because they looked the most alike.

Oh, and I'd have to say I've been slightly more sick, but not sick enough to say I'm sick. I've thrown up way more this time, but that was partially because of that stupid cough I had forever.

Bodies must know what to do after the first baby. I ALWAYS get huge must faster with each one. I feel/look like I'm 30 weeks now, but I'm not even close. With my 1st I tried to make it show early, but couldn't until I was almost 5 months and now I couldn't even hold it in for 6 weeks. I wish I thought my belly was cute, but I'm already to the miserable stage. I officially grew out of all my normal clothes 3 weeks ago, and then grew out of all my small maternity clothes 2 weeks later. No wonder I am so depressed about my size! It's like my belly exploded overnight. I should have taken pics, but I don't like to remember how big I get. Thank goodness my husband is there to knock some sense into me. He loves the look of pregnant bellies.

I DO love other women's pregnant bellies. THEY are cute, but I'm sure it's b/c can't feel the pain that goes with their belly.

You are looking so good for being 12 weeks!

You look great! I would agree, having a 2nd makes you show much sooner.

You look gorgeous! Just wait until you have your third...you'll start showing the day you find out! lol

Brooke said...

Yeah! I'm so glad you posted pregnant pics. I always love seeing my friends pregnant. You look GREAT! I think you look the exact same in both...still tiny. I'll look forward to all your pregnant updates.

I have never been uglier than when I was pregnant. My face swelled up like a balloon and my nose got all wide and disgusting. I would wake up every morning and wonder who was looking at me from the mirror!

I'm seriously seething with jealousy right now. My body has never been the same since Anna. Even though I run and do pilates, I'm still fat and lumpy.

Juls said...

I think I am at my ugliest when I am pregnant, but Aaorn thinks I am at my loveliest! I will post a belly shot.

How fun to track your "growth" like that.

Congrats!
