meet my friend progesterone

Back at 6 weeks. 

Back at 11 weeks (although this picture was taken at 9pm rather than 9am ... stomachs look quite different after 3 meals and 4 snacks and 94 ounces of water. Just fyi).

Back at 13 weeks. 

Yesterday.

I am currently 16 weeks pregnant.
My babe is the size of an avocado.
Does that look like an avocado to you?!

I think I'm having twins.
My doctor thinks I'm having "freakishly high levels of progesterone".
But what do doctors know ...

P.S. I know I skipped about nine weeks in there and I know random bathroom photos could always be better, but this is the best I can do. Dan's really not a huge fan of taking pictures of me (he's so different than most other guys, huh?) and I kind of want to keep him around since I'm having his baby and all. And Sherman still refuses to learn how to use a Canon T2i. Oh but don't worry, we only have about five more months of self portrait bathroom bump pics to get through. Plus now you know where I pee every day at work.

  11. Aw baby bump!!!

    I've never heard of progesterone causing your bump to be bigger. Very interesting….though I think it would be pretty sweet if you had twins. And tell Sherman to work on that camera. ;)

  12. Totally missed the memo! Congrats girlfriend! How is Sherman reacting to this news that he will no longer be an only child?

  14. Love the baby bump! And nope, Dan is just like every other man. I have been hounding my husband for weeks that I need a few pictures of me. Do I have any yet? Nope.

  16. Sister we are ONE WEEK apart. Bring on the baby play dates, my friend. I am so excited. PS. you are not huge. You wanna see a huge belleh...come on over!

    xx, Amanda

    forgot to ask, are you finding out??

  17. I can't believe how cute of a bump you already have! I had a couple of different medical type people tell me that if your uterus is pointing forward, you will show a lot earlier, and overall look bigger throughout the pregnancy. Maybe that's all it is? You just have tippy lady parts?

    Either way, big pregnant bellies are always fashionable.

  18. Awww! Give your baby a little "rub and pat" from me.

    p.s. Now, I can quit wondering what your bathroom at work looks like.

  23. you look so cute! and my hubs is the same, not a pro photographer...he will take a handful every couple weeks, but i don't know where these other bloggers found their photo loving husbands ;) my solution? i asked for a tripod! got one on amazing for under $20. but i think your bathroom pics are darn cute!

    ReplyDelete
  24. you're the a such a cutie! I can't wait to follow along each month!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love your belly!!!! And twins would be soo fun. :)

  26. Congrats! That little stripe top looks adorable with the bump! I think weekly bump shots are really fun to watch! So what if it is in the bathroom mirror :-)

  27. Every time Phil tried to take a bump picture of me on my real camera, they looked like crap. But the self portrait in the bathroom at work? That one turned out with me not looking like a swollen whale every time. So I just went with it. I'm not sure what the deal was.

  29. woo to the hooty hoo lady! I have been so bad about keeping up with blogs lately & I literally just squealed out loud when I found out about your happy news! You need to get a tripod & remote off Amazon ASAP - I need to see lots of bump pictures!!!!

  30. I've been meaning to write words of congrats on your blog for a while! When I saw your first pregnancy post I showed my fiancé right away and said "the lady that has the dog that picks up everything on the street is expecting!" :)
    I've followed your blog for over a year now so it's neat to see your progression into this step. Congrats again and enjoy this special time!

  31. First, let me preface this by saying your body is so totally thin. Second, I can't believe you were showing so much at 6 weeks!!! I always assumed I would hide my future pregnancy from everyone I know until second trimester. Good Lord, that would have been hard for you to do!! Probably since you are sooooo SKINNY your baby showed immediately. Mine could probably hide within me for the entire nine months. But hey lady, I am so happy for you! You know you were my first blog friend, right? And since we stopped talking, i stopped blogging. I don't know if there is a correlation, but I'm just saying....

  32. You are like the cutest pregnant woman ever!!! Only YOU could look THAT adorable pregnant! Wow, have they checked for twins? You are really showing early and you can tell it's pure baby, not an ounce of fat on you (so jealous!:)). I LOVE the baby bump pix!!! Knowing where you pee :) :) you MADE my night!!! Stay cute! :) Are you gonna find out if it's a boy or a girl? Name ideas??? Come on Auntie Max's Ma has lots of questions!!

  33. You look adorable! I finally announced our pregnancy this week. I couldn't wait to tell you that I'm about a week behind you!! So excited to find another blogger goin through the exact same journey :)

    Have a great weekend!

  34. This is the best little pregnant post EVER! I love your bathroom pics, and the fact that we now know where you pee at ;) haha. I'm glad you're deciding to keep Dan and Sherman around... they seem pretty darn great :) And the whole baby daddy/husband/big brother dog thing is pretty great too.
