    Dont feel fat hunny, remember its not all actual fat that is making you heavier! Water, blood, placenta, baby ... plus dont forget your body is storing as much as it can to protect you (comes from our days in the caves) so dont stress about your weight.

    Also, I lost all my weight after having my daughter and went even skinnier than I was before, kids keep you busy!! Ive put on a stone already at 22 weeks and im not worried, I will definatley put at least another stone on before hes born.

    Weight can be lost, but beauty cant be gained :)

    P.S. Your picture looks lovely, nice neat bump :)

    Pic is me now at 22 weeks

    I think you look beautiful, with a lovely round bump! I was about the same size a week ago - my bump has popped even more now!

    Sweetie, I think you look great! And don't worry too much.... 17 weeks is still in that awkward stage. I promise you that in a few weeks you'll actually feel sexier and prettier because your bump has caught up with the rest of your growth. That's exactly what happened to me. :hugs:

    Here's my 21 week bump.

    I have a big sized belly. It is super rounded and right in the center. I have a super short torso and everything pushed up front so it just makes me look even bigger. Every grows at their own rate.
