13 week Belly Pics (and others)

so today = 13 weeks. sometimes it seems like this pregnancy is going wicked slow- then i realize i'm 13 weeks & it's like, wow! it's flying by!

anyway, this morning:



(sorry, no alex in this one)
as you can see- i don't look all that pregnant. by the end of the day, yes- there is an obvious bump (thanks to food, bloat & etc) but i can still walk around without anyone guessing (unless i wear a tight shirt & stick it out...which i don't)
i can still fit into my regular pants & such- so that's a plus!
everyone says you show sooner with #2- but i'm not sure. while i am a bit more "bumpy" this time around, i'm not really "showing" per say. so we'll see what the next few weeks bring...

and because alex is absent from the above pic:
this is her today @ 6AM- none too pleased that i made her sit in the jumper while i took belly pics. but she's into throwing herself backwards with no warning, so to avoid a concussion while i wasn't looking- this was a must.

and here are some other pics- i rented a lense for a week (thanks to the wedding i shot last Sun) and i have to send it back today- so i took a couple shots yesterday before i have to give it up. ::sigh:: it's a beautiful lense, but considering that it has a price tag of $1,500...yeah. not gonna happen right now:

i'm actually not a fan of iris'- but they afforded me a great little photo op- so i say thank you.

and the pups:
cessna

maximus

and them having a..."special" moment.
notice the color differences in this pic & the 2 above. this pic is SOOC while the other 2 have been adjusted in LR. amazing what a little exposure adjust, color bump & blacks bump can do. the grass looks green, the dogs look better- i love LR.

and that's it. don't forget that today is FREE DONUT DAY at Dunkins and Krispy Kreme! i've already taken advantage (at Dunkins because NH doesn't believe in KK).
Pin It!

Alright, 13 weeks! That's great! Yay!

Your belly is so cute! You look great!

Alex's face is killing me....she is for sure giving you the evil eye! LOL!

Cute bump! At least your almost past the point where your bloat turns into baby :)
Alex is such a cutie!! How old is she? She looks about the same age as my LO (who also tends to fly backwards spontaneously)

Very cute!!! i think u definitely show sooner with #2 ..i did...even without pushing it out....obgyn told me its true because your muscles are already stretched out from the first pregnancy

Mandolynn said...

so cute and i love alex' expression about being left out.

Carol said...

I found that my pregnancy with #2 went WAY faster than #1. Probably because I wasn't able to spend the entire 9 months on the couch eating bonbons thinking "Wow - I'm pregnant!" Instead, I was chasing around a toddler and wondering where the days/months went.

I'm such a novice photog and depend on you for info (seriously, I'm serious). What the heck is LR?

love your baby bump! glad things are going well.

You look awesome! I love you pregnant, you're so cute. I also love Alex's face in her jumperoo... such attitude, already!

I'm going to have to get you to teach me some photography stuff. We have our new, pretty camera and my in-laws are going to be giving Trev a telephoto lens for his b-day and I am CLUELESS. My entire two semesters of high school photography have left my brain.

And I hope you're going to share some of those wedding pics, because if those pictures of Cessna and Max are that good, I can't imagine what they are going to look like!

I love your bump!! Pregnancy is funny like that, it seems to drag on and then boom your child is turning one... time flies when you're a Mom.

Beautiful pictures!

t.bird said...

thank you ladies!!!
rae: she's 8 months (eek!)
carol: LR = LightRoom. it's an editing program- check it out because you can download it for free right now (trial until the beta version expires!)
jess: duh- of course i'll help you! and i know you don't do the bump anymore- but there's a photography board that you should lurk on- they help me SO FREAKING MUCH!
i'm def planning on putting the wedding pics up- as soon as i finish editing. God it takes SO LOOOONG!

Love the pics (as always) - I think I can confidently say that your blog has some of the best pics around. on a totally different note, do you find you kinda 'forget' about the pregnancy because you're having so much fun (i.e. distracted) with Alex?

Phoenix said...

Adorable picture of Alex! I took belly photos every four weeks with both my pregnancies and merged them together so I could compare…my belly growth/size, it was the EXACT same (or at least looked)for both pregnancies month to month.

Phoenix said...

P.S. you probably won't gain as much weight with this pregnancy, especially when Alex starts walking. No time for pregnant & tired mommy to rest with a baby/toddler on the move! One of the perks is you'll be back in your pre-pregnancy clothes in no time, I left the hospital able to wear my pre-pregnancy clothes.
