fat. will there be a baby bump?


I'm not a small person by any means. I'm thick, 5'8" and 200 lbs. (I lost 25lbs).

I keep seeing all these cute lil baby bumps and I’m just sitting here like, “yeah, I’ll just be a whale because I'm not skinny to begin with.."

I feel discouraged and almost don’t want take week by week pics….

I hate being thick sometimes.

Anyone else feel this way? Or maybe someone can tell me otherwise?

I wouldn't worry too much. I think that bumps have more to do with the position you're carrying the baby in, than how you look to start with.

Eg, if you're carrying all out the front you'll have a sticky out bump but if you're carrying more inside, it'll be more of a splat

I'm sure your bump will be lovely whatever it looks like

I feel quite fat normally too, after having emcs with monkey 14 months ago nearly and then gallbladder surgery two months later my tummy hasn't had the chance to get back to normal and I look terrible. Can already see the beginnings if a bump, and you will too. I'm not far off your weight and a very curvy 16 so relax and enjoy it, you will have a gorgeous bump soon and look fabulous

I'm 5'2 and about 185 lbs (US size 16 - 18). With my first I started noticing a bump at around 14 - 16 weeks, and by 20+ weeks it was a definite baby bump! I know it sounds SOOO far away, but you'll have a beautiful bump before you know it

This time (#2) I'm no longer able to hold my stomach in (I used to be able to make it look somewhat flat) but now it just sticks out. The benefit is that since I'm bigger, no one at work has 'guessed' that I'm pregnant because I'm sure they all just assume it's me getting pudgy. I don't mind though, I know the bump is around the corner!

I know it's easier said than done, but try not to worry

I'm 5'6" and 200 lbs. I've read I shouldn't gain much weight to have a healthy pregnancy (although the estimate of only 11lbs in one book seems ridiculous!). I don't expect/hope to show til nearly the end. Other than that...yeah, I'm resigned to just looking fatter to those who don't know I'm pregnant.

You are about the same as me. When I got my positive I was 196 and am 5'7". Sadly I'm feeling the same as you. Now at almost 12 weeks I just feel fatter. Te scale hasn't changed much since I hit 200-202.

I'm terrified of weight gain and had just lost 20 pounds before this.

Here's hoping ill get a cute bump so I don't just look like a whale
I refuse to take pics too
