I agree Tess you look fabulous!!
I think its time I start taking bump pics, I sure as heck have a good bump happening this time, however it is my 3rd baby.
Is it your first Tess?
Yummymummymel - Do you have girls? I've heard (probably wives tale lol) that you swell more with girls)
***edited to add *** have noticed your sigs ladies and I see that it is your first Tess, congrats and Mel, you have two girls and a boy. Did you swell as much with your boy?

BrindleGirl - I swelled with my son too, it's the way my body handles pregnancy and I hate it. I look huge
Then you get the strangers thinking they are telling you something that you didn't already know when they find out how how far I actually am and reply with "oh your huge, are you sure there's only one or your dates are out?" you know the normal stuff that sometimes you want to slap people in the face for but you just smile and nod .. like need the extra kick about my size
nayjay - so sute
Anyways here I am, taken just this morning,

You belly is similar to mine and I bet when you lay down it isn't as big? Well mine isn't when I lay but standing its as though I push everything up and appear 'bigger' and 'bloated'.
I must start taking photos!!nayjay
- I can see a bump!!! There is a huge difference in the two weeks as well, you had nothing at 16 weeks and I bet at 20 weeks your bump will be even more prominent

BrindleGirl .. I'm not a whole lot smaller when I lay down but a bit. It's fairly hard and round when I'm up and ^ that photo I'm even 'holding it in' lol

Argh!! sorry its so big, new to photobucket and it wont let me edit!!!
Posted 24 October 2011 - 09:52 AM
GORGEOUS pics Sammity!!!!! Your DS is so cute too!
I resized mine in photobucket by putting the cursor over the pic and a little toolbar comes up. There is a resize button. Click on it and you can scroll down to the size that you want then it automatically resizes the pic...although I think I made mine a little small LOL!

Love the pics!
My 19 week bump, excuse the mess around my feet we are in the process of moving house.
It's a wee bit big, measuring 3 weeks ahead already - which is further than DS was at this stage and he was 9lb 9oz, argh. Maybe just a typical 3rd baby!
Posted 25 October 2011 - 08:39 PM
Am loving the bumps ladies!
Thought I'd add mine, I haven't taken many photos at all this pregnancy. Must be a 3rd pregnancy thing
This was me at 17.5 weeks.samshine
Its nice to see someone else who is measuring quite large and large. So am I and i really think its a 3rd pregnancy thing. I was this size at 27 weeks with DS1 and around 24 weeks with DS2 weeks. I was only 17 weeks in this shot I think!

WOW everyone looks so good! Sammity LOVE the professional photo you look stunning
I posted a pic on my blog this morning but can't get it to work here (stuuupid computers lol)
Posted 06 November 2011 - 06:14 PM
I haven't popped in here since the early days, but I am so glad I did now!
It must be a third baby thing because I already have people asking "if i have long to go"
There is another mum at school who has a bump half the size of mine and she is due next month.
I'll take a pic at some point. Just glad to see I'm not the only one with a big bump already
