We took piccies yesterday.
The normal bump piccies like I've been doing since 12 weeks.
As I was comparing my 16 week bump with my 15 week bump I noticed something.
Luckily I remembered about a friend who just had a baby having a very similar thing happen to her, so I went back to her blog and sure enough, it happened at 16 weeks.
Then because I was curious I googled.
Sure enough, there are TONS of forums and boards where women's bump disappears or shrinks at 16 weeks.
Is this a normal 16 week occurrence? Why don't they share this information with us on thebump.com or in pregnancy books instead of insisting that we should all be gaining 1-2 lbs a week and blossoming about now?
Anyone else have this happen?
Since I now have such a huge pool of pregnant bloggers to poll (34!!!) I feel I can get an accurate idea of how common this is.
I know a bunch of you are too early in your pregnancies, but keep this in mind when you hit 16 weeks and let me know!
And here's my photographic proof.
15 weeks, my what a round cute little bump you have!
16 weeks, well now you just look chunky again Jes, where'd the round little bump go?
And btw, the 16 week was taken way LATER in the day when the bump is usually out and about so it's not a time of day discrepancy.
