I tricked you

You guys left the sweetest comments in this post about my "baby bump" and I loved them so much! But I decided it was time to come clean.... The bump has definitely made its appearance this past week, but it's just not as big as we all thought. Sometimes when I eat a lot of food... I bloat. A lot! And my belly was extremely bloated that night, ha ha. How embarrassing! Here's a crappy cell phone picture to show you what the belly actually looks like :)

17 weeks 4 days (almost 5 days, ha!)

I snapped this picture at the end of the day so my belly definitely grew since morning :) But it's been fun to finally see it pop out! Everyone told me it would just happen one day, and it totally did! If you didn't know any better, you probably wouldn't even think I was pregnant, so I'm looking forward to actually looking pregnant. I'm so over the in between stage :)
I'm thinking it's time to start weekly baby bump pictures now! I'm excited to see my belly change as baby grows, and to finally update more on my pregnancy. I need to be better about documenting my experience! But I promise I won't go overboard with the documenting... I don't want to drive everyone crazy by talking about baby too much. Or have I done that already? Ha ha!

I on the other hand started showing several weeks ago. I'm almost 20-weeks now, but am like you.. at night it is bigger after a meal.

It's the best when you start actually looking pregnant - I hated the early stage! You are adorable!

Shaylynn... I blahwg It's True. said...

You are gorgeous! Love the little bump!

Shannon said...

What a cute little bump. I don't think I looked noticeable pregnant until around 20 weeks and then the belly grew out of control! haha. You look great!

Joeylee said...

Awe your tiny baby bump is too cute

Mandy@ a sorta fairytale said...

Oh it will grow, I promise! With my 1st... I didn't really start popping out noticeably until 20ish weeks. It was frustrating.. lol.

Sarah said...

funny that you think it's "popped". Just wait you'll get an even better "pop" over night. And then you'll REALLY start feeling pregnant! Still so cute though :)

YOU ARE STILL SO TINY AND BEAUTIFUL! I can tell you are going to carry like a pro!

17 weeks....don't you find out the sex now? You need to let me know...I have boy and girl gifts picked out, I'm just waiting on you friend!!

Miki {Becoming What I Always Was} said...

I hear that the in between stage isn't fun, because you just feel fat. Well that's what my friend said, and she was so excited when she started to show, so people would know she was preggo! I love your belly! Keep it growing well for me!! =)

tiff@thecoffeehouse said...

you are so stinking adorable!! ok, so funny story. My sister was prego with Jack and we went on a cruise ... we had a contest (after eating) to see who could stick out their stomach more ... we took pictures. My stomach (no baby) won by a long shot! I'm not kidding ... I can show you the picture. ;)

so happy for you my dear! you look fabulous!

Annmarie Pipa said...

congrats!!!!

That Girl said...

The bloating part was the worst. Nothing fits, but it's not really the baby so you just look bleh. My actually baby belly ended up being higher than my bloat belly too!

Purposely at Home said...

Haha! You are too funny!

Btw, I haven't forgotten about getting you a gift. I think I'm gonna wait till a gender is proclaimed....be a little bit easier in finding that gift that I promised. Haha!

Hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend.
