Aww you have a gorgeous baby belly! I'm with Seza, I don't really have one, it just looks like I'm gaining weight rather then pregnant sad.gif

I still don't have a belly, just flab, but will be taking my first belly pic in the next week or 2 so I can see how it has grown from there.

Well to mark the occasion of my belly progressing past my boobs, I figure a celebratory photo was in order.

This is at 22 weeks and 6 days! Finally!!!

#21 Bluemakede

Everyone has such lovely bumps. I still feel all frumpy, and have a nice layer of fat over my belly, but it has popped out finally, you can see it when I'm laying down (I have one selfie of my belly laying down, I won't share though, I will see if I can get my sister to take a pic of my belly to post.

Does anyone else's bump really stick out one day then hide the next? I had a bit of insomnia yesterday morning (was wide awake 1-6am) and my belly was sitting way out looking more like a proper pregnancy bump, then when I finally got back to sleep and woke up my belly was almost non-existent lol.

Looking great seza. I was tiny with my first like you. Once I hit 30 weeks it was all go then, my belly grew so fast it was amazing!

Bluemakede - sometimes I don't feel as big during the day but I seem to be biggest in the evenings.
