I don't think you're ready for this belly.

Today I bought my first pair of maternity pants because, quite frankly, I’m tired of the partially-unzipped-rubber-band-around-the-button look. And I don’t find the Bella Band very comfortable, even though I seem to be in the minority there. Hence, it was time for maternity pants.

And, since I will be wearing the new pants tomorrow, I thought it was prime time for my first belly photo. First time to show you all, that is. I’ve been taking them for six weeks, though the roundness in the first couple photos was mostly dinner and my gas baby. So I’ll keep those pics to myself. If you twist my arm, by the end of the pregnancy I may give you a belly-photo collage and include the early pics. But this photo is me at 15 weeks, and I swear my little bump is a real baby, not a food baby.
(Being this shape is weird to me, by the way. Looking at this photo, my first thought is, sheesh, suck it in, fatty. Also, I am judgmental of my thighs. Isn’t that terrible? *shakes fist at society*)

(I think I’m going to love maternity pants.)

(One more thing: we took this photo in the coming-soon-ish nursery, thinking that as I change, you will see the changes to the room, too. Clever, no? But so far it’s not much to look at.)

That definitely looks like a baby belly. You're so cute!

Might not be so in love with maternity pants in a few months...

Excellent bellyage! I was just wondering when we were gonna get to see.

Your belly totally looks bigger in the picture than in person. Are you sticking it out? :)

Really, though, you look great. Sorry the bellaband's not working for ya. But yay for maternity pants! They're so comfy, I wish I could still wear them.

I think the belly looks bigger in the pictures than in real life too, but I am blaming on the lighting, or something. Or dinner. But I swear, it's mostly baby!

I've only been out of town for a week and you have definitely "blossomed". Can't wait to see your baby bump in person. Lunch next week???
