Baby Bump!

For those of you who don’t know, I’m fairly tall and have always been thin.  Those genes just run in our family!  When people started finding out I was pregnant, many made the comment that I’d probably have a very small “baby bump” and not show for awhile.

Looking down at my thin abdomen, I doubted that.  Where was the baby supposed to go, after all?
My mom, who is built much the same way I am, had a “bump” right before 12 weeks.  It was noticeable enough that one of her coworkers, who didn’t yet know she was pregnant, asked someone if she was.  I guess when you’re thin, a little pot belly is obviously not due to food. 

Well, here I am, 11 weeks along, and I definitely have a baby bump.  It’s not enough that anyone else would probably notice (except my husband and family who know me well), but it’s definitely there.  I just didn’t have a pooch that big before…especially not one that was hard and I couldn’t “suck in”. 

Here’s a pic from right around 6-7 weeks along to give you perspective.  Sorry it’s not very good…this was before the camera my sweet husband gave me for Christmas.  It also was a not very good self portrait. hehe!


And today…11 weeks.

I fully intended to be faithful about taking pictures every week, but it seemed kind of silly when I had nothing to show yet.  Plus, the more I thought about it, it’s a little bit overkill.  As baby grows, however, I’ll be sure to update you on my growing belly!

  1. How fun!! I'm also quite slender, and you're right–there isn't much place for a baby to go except out!! My hubby and I were debating when to make our announcement, and at 6 weeks I remember him being concerned if we didn't hurry up and announce people might figure things out on their own. 😛

    Enjoy this time you have with your little one! It is precious! (and such a cute bump 😀 )
