    I am 5'6 and 250lbs and I looked like this when I was pregnant with my son. I actually lost weight during my pregnancy because the baby sped up my metabolism. After I had him I weighed 212. So you never know! (It wouldn't let me post the picture, so just type https// in front of the URL below.

    Hi, I'm 5'1, weigh 187lbs and BMI of 35.18
    I've actually lost weight during the pregnancy so far as I'm ill with vertigo. My BMI was 37 at my 8week check in appointment.

    I'm under consultant care as my daughter was born by emergency csection due to fetal distress, she had a hole in her heart and was in NICU for 3weeks.
    During my 8week appointment my midwife explained I would be under consultant care because of my weight, here, if your BMI is over 37 then you are automatically under consultant care so they don't recommend a home birth, water birth etc.
    By my next check up at 12 weeks, I'd been so ill and lost well over a stone in weight that my BMI was well below 37 so my consultant only sees me in regards to having a previous c section and my daughters complications, so she is happy for me to go ahead and try for a VBAC :happydance:

    My weight seems to be staying where it is now and I'm managing the vertigo abit better to keep some food down.

    I too have worried and moaned on and on to my OH that I wouldn't get a lovely bump and people will just think I'm even fatter than normal :cry:
    But no, my belly is definately hard now and has been for the last few weeks. I have a overhang from my csection so I do have a pouch of fat there but above it is hard, I'm feeling the baby move :happydance: can find the heartbeat with a doppler and have done since 9 weeks :happydance: and I think - depending on what I wear but I'm definately starting to look more like a pregnant weeble than just a weeble :haha:

    I'll post some pics for you now...
