No bump but flabby tummy?


Hi you lovel ladies!!

So I feel a bit weird asking about this, like I'm being selfish or something, but here goes.
Is anyone else panicking a little about their body and what's happening to it? I'm nearly 12 weeks, so not got a bump yet, but my pants are all too tight and it's getting frustrating. This is my first so I don't really know what to expect. I know baby is still really low down at this point, but I've developed a bit of a tyre around my waist, just below my belly button, and I'm just feeling a bit podgy and fat Like when I sit at work I get all uncomfortable and often end up undoing my pants button to get some relief

I know that it's inevitable that our bodies are going to change, and I'm thrilled to be pg! I think I'll feel way better when I get a littl bump. Maybe it's silly, but I think I'll really start to feel pg then (as if the ms and zits aren't enough to do that for me) and maybe then feel ok about not really fitting in my clothes any more?

A bit of a pointless thread really, just wanted to see if there are any other ladies out there who feel like I do?

Yay! Thanks Natty! I'm so glad I'm not alone in feeling like this. I was starting to feel guilty about feeling fat, because we tried for a year and I really want this! I just wasn't expecting to feel fat before I felt like there was a baby in there

Congratulations on your pregnancy!!! 2 years, wow!! We tried for 1 and I thought that was long!

Your definately not on your own! This is my first baby too and I feel the same.

I keep looking at my tummy in the mirror hoping to see a bump, but no, all I see is my flabby belly and bloat.

I'm a size 10/12 and I've always exercised regularly, I've never been skinny though. But now I just feel sooo fat and unattractive. OH keeps telling me I look beautiful so maybe I should just believe him.

But I understand how you feel! I keep wondering how I'm going to look with a bump and if I'll ever get back in my old clothes I've resorted to comfy leggings now because that's all I feel comfortable in! X

I'm 11 weeks tomorrow and can deffinetly feel something forming. Just below my belly, between my hips there is a very slight bump. I already had a bit of a belly but I can't seem to suck it in anymore! Don't know of this is the little bit of weight I've put on or all baby, family keeps saying its twins! I feel the same though, can't wait to get a wee bump so I feel pregnant!

Someone told me that your body naturally starts storing extra fat in the belly and breast area as soon as you get pregnant. Granted, I was in leggings and maternity pants by 6 weeks, but I really noticed it by 8 weeks. Your belly will obviously get bigger, but the flabby bit does seem less noticeable later on. My stomach is still kinda jiggly (it was before I was pregnant!), but not as much as before, so not sure if you burn that bit off or it just re-distributes. But it's normal and you will look more pregnant in a few weeks. I looked a bit pregnant because of the fat earlier, but belly got more hard and round at 15 weeks. I no longer just look fat! So hang in there and it will keep changing.

Thanks ladies!!

Victoria, I've also always been a 10/12, and I'm still exercising now, but it really doesn't seem to be helping! lol

SW, I can't feel any bump yet (my gynae assures me it's there, I've been having scans every 2 weeks), just flab. Well my uterus should be moving up pretty soon, so hope I can also feel a little bump in the near future! Even just the start would make me SO happy

Thanks Utopia!! It makes sense, I guess, that we would start storing fat. Suprisingly that little tidbit of info has made me feel LOADS better already!

EEK!! Can't wait to actually look preggers from the outside too!!

Yep I'm still exercising too but it's not making any difference for me either

Never mind I'm sure we will have lovely bumps soon
