So when did you ladies start to feel like you looked pregnant and not just looking fatter? I know it's still early for me to get a baby bump, but my belly has definitely gotten bigger. I haven't gained any weight at all and I certainly don't look pregnant.
Location: originally from Jamaica, live in Toronto
I think I started to really show a "bump" at 4 months. from 12 to 16 weeks I put on 5 pounds and I guess that went to a high bump. The rest of my stomach looks pretty much as fatty as it used to but under my boobs is a real bump!
Hi ladies. I'm having one of those nights... On top I made the mistake of getting on the scale and now having a weight meltdown shall we say
I started at 196 when we got the positve and today at almost 22 weeks I'm now 210! I've gained 3 pound in a week!!! I'm a little worried and concerned by this sudden rapid increase... Is this normal for second tri/ where I am?
Weight fluctuates daily. It's water weight. It depends on how much you've had to drink or eat. When you last showered. Weighing yourself at night can have a 2-5lb difference from morning depending on a bunch of factors. Don't stress, lady! Especially during pregnancy. You are gaining weight for baby. I am TERRIFIED of gaining a lot, so I get it. I need to remind myself of the same things!!
Its a really low dose aspirin that I need to take from 12 weeks on. In our bit of the UK it is standard practice for anyone with a BMI over 35 as you are more at risk of blood clots and the aspirin slightly thins your blood. Checked with pharmacist and GP after my appt with the MW (call me paranoid ) and they both said it's normal.
Hellooo beautiful ladies!
I have spent a while scanning your stories on this amazing forum Congratulations on your amazing scans and gorgeous bumps and staying healthy for your bubbas.
I'm very early in pregnancy, only 6 weeks +3, I'm 5"6' and not sure of exact weight but wear UK sizes 20-22.
I'm having the usual fears plus size newly pregnant women seem to have; that their weight will be the focus of their appointments and that their baby might be affected.. but I am doing my best to put those thoughts from my mind and just do what I can in the situation I am in!
Your stories are a comfort and I adore seeing your bumps, more pictures pleeaase! I can't wait to have a bump, I hope it doesn't take too much longer because of my weight, by the looks of your pictures it might not! hehe.
Lots of love and light to you all, I know it's rough sometimes, but us curvy ladies shine in a different way and our partners adore our softness xx
