This is particularly for the chunkier women who don't have a flat stomach to begin with. Since about the early 5 week mark I've had a big round tummy. I've just literally taken a photo now to show what I'm on about. Why is my belly so big. Yeah I have a bit of flab right at the bottom but where the skin has been stretching and growing it is rock solid. It's driving me insane. I'm too embarrassed to mention my pregnancy to people as I think I look like I'm very later on, especially in all my pretty dresses. When looking on the bump photo's only the skinnier ladies have really posted so I don't know what to expect with having an already flabby tummy. https://img607.imageshack.us/img607/441/image96.jpg https://img37.imageshack.us/img37/6730/image98.jpg Please share your photo's and experiences with a very stressed out me. Just so you know I'm eating more fruit and veg ever than before. My main diet concern is I'm craving lots of meat, and I'm doing my best just to have ice lollies every time I crave something unhealthy. Ice lollies cure all. My tummy was never that big before. I was a size 16 normally and occasionally had to get size 18 jeans as I have a big butt but now I'm lucky if I fit into a size 16 anything that isn't incredibly elasticated. I exercise regularly, I haven't lost interest in sex or anything at all really. My foot is causing problems as the heat and hormones made my poorly foot swell but I still carried on exercising. Btw I do have an inactive thyroid gland, doctors are certain on it. Will be discussing how to handle my weight next week with doctor. I just want to be a healthy mom that takes billions of photo's of her bump without wanting to cry.
