Can/Should you take belly pics if your fat?

I'm 7 weeks and the baby books say that now is when you;re supposed to start taking belly pics for keep for you baby books. But I'm really Really fat. like a size 16-18 in jeans and I'm scared I'm not even going to show at all when I'm even 9 months....let alone 7 weeks.

I mean, I can FEEL my uterus growing a little. it feels like the size of a baseball right now but I'm not showing. Will I ever show with this pregnancy?

Am I too fat to take belly pics (and Duh, I know I couldn't post any of them of facebook or anything, but I mean even for myself.)

HELP!

Take them if it makes you happy. I took belly pics every few weeks with my DD but they were only for me.

I took belly pics and i'm about the same size.  I could definetly see that i was getting bigger.  But you generally don't start showing for a little while yet.

16-18 isn't that fat. Take the pics - you'll be happy to have the memories.

I think you should take them, especially if they're just for you.  Even though you're heavy your stomach will change over the course of your pregnancy.  It's worth it.

If it's just for yourself then what's the big deal? I think all rules go out the window when there's a baby in there lol. Pregnancy is beautiful, no matter what you weigh.

I agree with this. I only have one pic from when I was pregnant with my first, and no pics from my second. Although I didn't even start to show with my second until about 3 weeks before she was born, I still wish I had taken more pregnancy pics for memories.
