A belly pic.

So, I got Brett to take a picture this morning. He made my put my hands on my belly so that it would look like I actually had a belly:-) I have to say, I did think it would be more obvious by now...I actually took one of our dogs to the vet on Friday and the vet tech was very pregnant so I said to her, "how far along are you?" (you know I wouldn't have asked if I didn't absolutely KNOW she was pregnant- wearing maternity scrubs and really filling them out). She smiles and says, "almost 21 weeks". I said, "wow, I'm almost 19 weeks!". She looks at me, I see her gaze glance down to my belly, she looks a little confused, smiles and says, "oh, congratulations". So, I had to go a step further and ask her if this was her first b/c we all know that you show so much faster with your later children...nope it was her first. Then another woman who works there comes in and she is 20 weeks and again, she looks WAYYYY more pregnant than me. It looks like all I'm getting is some hip spreading (which hurts in the mornings, by the way) and just a little bit of belly action. So, here are my pics...Oh, and did I mention I really really need a haircut? I am set up to get one in 3 weeks, where I will lose that huge ponytail and donate it to Locks of Love...and I will have non-flat hair again!!! !



19 weeks!!! In another week, I will be halfway there!!!!

Ok, that totally does NOT look like a beer gut! lol You look good!

DAVs said...

Maybe your super strong yoga abs are keeping everything nice and tight?? I think you look great--and there's still plenty of time to pop!

Ok, I had to click on the photos to enlarge them as I couldn't see much of a belly. I agree with DAVs, you must have some strong abs holding that baby back! I'm sure you'll pop soon and then you definitely have to share an updated belly shot. Thanks for sharing!

Cute belly pic! Believe me, Sue, you have plenty of time to pop out there:) I have a girlfriend who does't pop out until most of the way through her 2nd trimester. :)

I seem to recall that you have a slightly retroverted uterus, as do I, and my theory is that we won't pop out until later because the expansion is going on inside our bodies rather than outside. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it! You look fabulous too by the way!! Congrats on making it to 19 weeks!!

Angie said...

Such a cute picture! You look fab! Like DAVs, probably your rock-hard yoga abs are keeping your belly in such good shape! Congrats on 19wks! And thanks for sharing your pic!

Very cute. And you will pop out. Enjoy it now while you can!

Lost in Space said...

Too cute with a great backdrop to boot. (-; I'm guessing it won't be too long before you pop.

Please do some before and after shots of your haircut!

Sue you are adorable! Thanks for posting a pic!

Polly Gamwich said...

You look FANTASTIC!!!

You look fabulous!!!

I agree with Kayjay. I've heard that with a tipped uterus you don't show quite so much. Between that and yoga, you could be the new star of 'I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant'. A new TLC star, think of the possibilities! You look great!

I've read that folks with weak abs (such as myself! lol) tend to show earlier. So far it's true for me - I'm 17 weeks and starting to show. So it makes sense that the corrallery would be true - people with strong abs would tend to show later. You look great, I wouldn't worry about it - you'll be showing plenty before too long!!

If you hadn't had IVF, maybe you could be on the "I didn't know I was pregnant show" LOL.
Thanks for the belly pics!
