The Belly - 1 day shy of 12 Weeks!

I am quite liking my little belly. I tend to catch myself looking at it a little too often, is it really there or am I just imagining it? I ask my husband, "have I always had a stomach that sticks out this much"?, his reply is thankfully "no", its got bigger! Lucky he's a clever man and knew the right answer!

So I know these picture's aren't really much but something is definitely starting to stick out, which does surprise me as so many woman have said they had no belly at all at 12 weeks, am I going to have a mega huge baby?  I think when I stand side on like I am in these pictures its quite noticeable but if I was just strolling around town no one would ever know, I still am wearing my own clothes and not maternity stuff,  but as woman are we can always tell in ourselves when our own body is changing and I feel mine sure is. I think it's quite nice to document the growing belly, I say that now, yet when I'm the size of a whale I may not be so keen to share my whale like body with you all. If you are around the same stage as me, how is your belly progressing?

Tomorrow afternoon is our 12 weeks scan and we are both very excited and a little worried, there is always this thought in the back of my mind that it's little heart may have stopped beating and my growing belly is just because of my new love of ice cream, but all in all I really do think its all going to be fine and it will be so cool to get a life like picture of the wee bubba.

Ill let you know tomorrow how the scan goes tomorrow and then only 1 week till I will be in my second trimester! 


  1. Woohoo! That belly is looking just gorgeous!

  4. The belly is great I love it...dont worry I have had a belly for last 2 - 3 weeks and will be 12 weeks tomorrow. I also have been taking photos I will try to do weekly for my own reference...we have waited so long for this pregnancy its great to embrace every moment and our beautifully changing bodies..Im seeing my obstetrician today

  5. Your belly is so very cute! Yes, I definitely had a belly like that at around 12 weeks - totally normal I think. :)
