Yesterday I officially hit 14 weeks, and my bump decided to come out of hiding. It has been playing a game where my stomach is flat, albeit with my normal lower pooch, until noon and then after lunch it is out in full force. No matter how well I eat, and how much water I drink, the bloating makes me look like I am further along than I really am. I’m one of the last of my friends to get pregnant, so I’ve been told about all sorts of not-so-fun side-effects, but nobody warned me about the bloating!
Aside from the 4-week-just-found-out shot, I didn’t start weekly pictures until I noticed a (barely there, but still making its presence known) bump at 10 weeks. I searched through my photo library to find a before side shot, and the best I came up with is this cherry picking shot from this past summer:
and this downward shot of the belly before:
And here is what we’ve got going on week 4:
10 weeks 2 days:
11 weeks 3 days:
12 weeks 2 days:
13 weeks 2 days
14 weeks 1 day
So there you have it, Bump Watch 2012 is on – be expecting a picture update once a week (most likely on the weekends).
