Fashion Friday: The Bump

Yesterday I officially hit  14 weeks, and my bump decided to come out of hiding. It has been playing a game where my stomach is flat, albeit with my normal lower pooch, until noon and then after lunch it is out in full force. No matter how well I eat, and how much water I drink, the bloating makes me look like I am further along than I really am. I’m one of the last of my friends to get pregnant, so I’ve been told about all sorts of not-so-fun side-effects, but nobody warned me about the bloating!

Aside from the 4-week-just-found-out shot, I didn’t start weekly pictures until I noticed a (barely there, but still making its presence known) bump at 10 weeks. I searched through my photo library to find a before side shot, and the best I came up with is this cherry picking shot from this past summer:

and this downward shot of the belly before:

And here is what we’ve got going on week 4:

Baby Spinach was the size of a poppy seed, which I didn’t have – but I did have chia seeds, which are roughly the same size.

10 weeks 2 days:

Baby Spinach was the size of a kumquat.

11 weeks 3 days:

Baby Spinach was the size of a lime.

12 weeks 2 days:

Baby Spinach was the size of a lemon, but I forgot to grab one at the store.

13 weeks 2 days

Baby Spinach was the size of a peach, but they aren’t in season.

14 weeks 1 day

Baby Spinach is the size of an orange, but I forgot to pick one up at the store. Also, all I want to wear is yoga pants…so much for fashion.

So there you have it, Bump Watch 2012 is on – be expecting a picture update once a week (most likely on the weekends).
