Why is my butt bigger?


I know I have gained a couple more pounds than I should have, but I am very tall and was at the very bottom of my weight range before getting pg, so a couple pounds shouldn't matter right? So why does my butt look so big???

My butt feels bigger too. I just mentioned that in the "baby bump" category. I don't feel like I have a bump ... but my butt is DEFINITELY wider.

I've never known anyone to not get a bigger butt when pregnant!! It's funny, because once your tummy sticks out, you think that you're skinny all over but with a big bump. Then once you've given birth, you realise that your arms, legs, butt and face actually DID get bigger!!!!!!!

Well, the butt thing has alot to do with the fact that your hips are widening. Which is maddening, because pants just don't fit me nicely. My old size fits my legs but squuuuueeeeeezes my hips, and a size up fits hips nicely but bags once you get below the hips and I look frumpy.

Funny how FINZ mentioned that everything else gets bigger too and it sneaks up on you... I vowed that would NOT happen to me this time, or at least not without my knowledge ...so I'm still tracking my measurements. I figure that way, if my measurements *aren't* getting bigger (aside obviously from hips, tummy, and breasts) then I can not freak out about weight gain. And if they ARE getting bigger, then at least I know it's time to reign it in so as to keep the damage to a minimum!

It's your bodies way of evening out, so you don't topple face first into the ground when your bump gets bigger.

Do you know what you're having? The old wives tale says that if you have a boy you only gain weight in your belly; however a girl steals your looks! I noticed it when I had my daughter. I never had a butt before her!

Let me just be frank....my daughter made my ass wide as a freakin house! Seriously right now I'm about 20 lbs less than my pre pregnancy weight but because my ass is enormous now I wear 2 pant sizes larger than before I got pregnant! Its maddening!!

ETA...Oh and boobs, dont even get me started...I only went up 1 cup size so not too shocking, but the width in my band....HOLY SHIT! I went from a 36C to a 42D! yes....three six.....to....four two!!!
