Oh Mai Belly...

My belly has begun to emerge... This is very exciting to me. Definitely helps make it more real. 

Seems I have seen picture after picture for months now of those at the same point (or close to it) in my journey and their bellies are so much bigger! I have been so jealous of their beautifully present bumps. 

My lil bump has literally arrived just this week (today I am 17 weeks, 2 days). I am still in my normal clothes but do need a belly band for some of them. My low rise pants still seem to be ok for now. I have also still been able to sleep on my tummy which is so nice... not sure what I am going to do when that becomes uncomfortable. Lol. 

I am so happy with the development of a visible sign that this is actually happening. I find my hands moving to this little bulge in such an adoring manner and know it is helping me connect in some small way. 

Without further adieu... here's mai belly:

  2. Looking good! I was the same, belly didn't start to show up until it popped in the 18th week.

  3. beautiful looking belly! So cute! I am obviously a huge belly, and I do love it so far, but I have a feeling all too soon it is going to get out of control huge! Yours will definitely start coming along faster every week though!

  6. My sister took a while to show with her first. I am glad you are seeing it now though. It really does help that connection.
