I'm in the same boat. I def look pregnant because I've gained a lot of weight. Pre-pregnancy, I have a slight eating disorder, so I restrict my calories possibly too low (bout 1000 a day), but with m/s I eat often to keep the nausea at bay. on a bright note, many who think I've just put on weight say I look better and more healthy.

Sorry to hear about your eating disorder Imaswimmer, that can't be easy, especially with all the changes our bodies are going through!!

I've never been able to count calories, I think I'm just lazy like that Good to hear that people say you are looking nice and healthy!! Good on you!

Natty, if you've written on the thread then you can to the top right purple bar, and click on quick links, then subscribed threads, and it should take you to a page with all the thread you have been active on.

Exciting about your wedding!!!! I've read that the best was to recover your pre-baby body quickly is to keep exercising regularly throughout pregnancy. I've joined a group here in South Africa called Preggi Bellies (I think they are international), and they specialise in exercise for moms-to-be so it's all totally safe and there's a trained professional taking every class. I love it!! Hope it works!!!!!

Ah thanks so much! yep worked perfectly, right i know where i am now! That excerise class sounds great! thing is i was planning on staying at the gym as i went all the time but i have had such bad M/S - ive hadnt stop everything, hence the weight gain (even tho i couldnt eat or drink for a whole week!) i still feel so nauseas now but hoping when it starts to subside ill be able to start walking a few times a week on my lunch break! x

Hey ladies. It's so cute reading about how excited you all are to see your bumps. Good luck to you all. You def do get a bit chubbier in the belly first but that's ok, it goes and leaves a lil round bump I am a bit like you Soy, I'm a size 18, I just had a baby 11 months ago and lost lots for my wedding but put it back on but now I have the saggy bit at the bottom. Because of that, I tend not to show properly until about 7 months. You girls will show much earlier than that. You should expect a nice lil bump around 20-25 weeks

20 weeks seems like forever awyay!! I think I'll be way more chilled after my 12 week scan on Wednesday, hopefully all goes well and then maybe I'll relax just a touch more. Then things can happen in their own time!!

It really is crazy how exciting and all-consuming being pg is

Your uterus starts to move up at 12 weeks by the end of week 12 you should be able to feel the rounded top of your uterus just below your belly button. So even tho at the moment you feel flabby it's the start of your bump. I had a lovely bump at 8 weeks then the bloat went down and I have a very low bump lol looks naff but I feel huge already lol not looking forward to being 6 times this size with feet in my ribs too lol
