Baby Bump Comparison

Posted Aug 26 2010 4:18pm

Happy Thursday!

Glad you enjoyed the White Chocolate Delights . Maybe I should start to bake something once a week so I can improve my skills? Maybe.

Ally mentioned that it has been quite some time since I’ve given you guys a baby bump shot, but that’s because I don’t have much of a bump yet.

At least I don’t think so.

What do you think?

Let’s start with week #12. IMG_4627 No much there, right?

Here are photos from my 16th week (taken last Thursday). I feel really cheesy in these photos, just an fyi :) Hmmmm….I still don’t detect a bump.

What about today? My 17th week? Maybe a little one? Do you see it?

I am hoping to just POP any day now! It’s hard to feel pregnant when you don’t have much of a baby belly.

Side by side comparison.

Both my mom and my sister didn’t really start showing until their six month. And by really start showing I mean strangers are able to tell you are pregnant when you walk by. I may have a little bump but most people wouldn’t guess that I was pregnant.

Come on belly! I’m ready for ya!

Everyone woman is different and some start showing a lot earlier/later than others. When you begin to show depends on a few different factors:

  1. First time pregnancies often don’t show until later because the uterine muscles tend to be stronger than on women who have previously been pregnant.
  2. Woman who have strong core muscles may not develop a bump until later because the muscles are effectively holding it in (perhaps all those planks worked?).
  3. If a woman is carrying multiples she will begin to show sooner.

On a FOOD NOTE -

I haven’t been photographing and blogging about what I eat because my daily eats have become very predictable and I would simply bore you do death. Here’s an overview:

  • Breakfast: CEREAL – it’s what I crave every morning and I can’t imaging eating anything else right now. Maybe I’ll switch to oatmeal when the weather gets cooler.
  • Snack #1: FRUIT – watermelon, cherries, plums, peaches
  • Lunch: GRILLED CHEESE or CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICH with potato chips and a pickle
  • Snack #2: FRUIT or PITA CHIPS AND HUMMUS (I really wish I wanted nuts for the protein and healthy fat, but I just don’t right now)
  • Dinner: This has a lot more variety because my mom cooks pretty much every night, but since I don’t enjoy meat or veggies right now, I am difficult to please. I could eat pasta every night!
  • Snack #3: MORE CEREAL! I just can’t get enough. But don’t you worry, I have been following my personal cereal guidelines !

On a FITNESS NOTE -

I have been keeping up with my new fitness goals !

  • Walk briskly for 30 minutes to an hour 3-4 times a week
  • Prenatal yoga 1-2 times a week (I’ve been doing a minimum of 2 days)
  • Strength training 2-3 times a week (light weights for arms, lunges & squats for legs)

The prenatal yoga class on Yoga Download is wonderful and find it to be very relaxing. I have never been so excited to do yoga before!

Q for U-

Do you have specific fitness goals that you set each week or month? Or do you just fly by the seat of your pants?
