I wish I had as cute a bump as you ladies! My bump is lumpy and I look fat without a shirt. If I'm wearing a shirt, it looks cute, but I lift up my shirt and it looks semi-disasterous. lol

Becky, mine does too. I'm heavy to start with, so naked I still look sort of "just fat." The maternity pants help to smooth things out so it looks rounder, and I think I look definitely pregnant when dressed. It's good enough for me :) What I'm NOT happy about are the stretch marks I'm already seeing! I bought some (expensive) cream; we'll see if it works...



Hahahah I agree too! 

 

And Miriam -gloomy.gif stretch marks suck. i hope your creme works... i had them on my sides to begin with from when i put on a little weight, but thankfully they haven't gotten worse with the baby weight. is this something that being proactive about could help?

Stretch marks are Mom-trophies.  Lol.  Embrace them.  Trust me when I say this- creams and lotions will not save you, spare your money.  When I had my first I used about 5 different VERY expensive creams and did regular skin therapy at a local salon because I was convinced it would save me...it did not.  To say the least.  I believe its actually proven that its genetic predisposition that will cause stretch marks.

On stretch marks- I was diligent about moisturizing the skin on my tummy and thighs with both girls. With the second, I used Vitamin E. I've been pretty obsessive about moisturizing my entire body since I was about 16, though. I got barely any stretch marks with either. However, I completely believe it is just a coincidence. I'm with Ash- it's genetic. Of course, that doesn't stop me from using Palmer's Tummy Butter this time around!

 

Oddly enough, it wasn't the two pregnancies that gave me stretch marks. It was the 20 or so pounds I put on in the last 2 years. Odd how gaining 50 lbs in 9 months didn't do it, but that did! I think I'll end up with many more this time around as my skin already seems to be stretched.

 

Overall, though, I try not to care. My hips and thighs are not a pretty sight, so I just don't look close up! In my mind, I still look good, and that's enough for me. ;)

I 4th or 5th the dressing room comment!

 

And Becky and Miriam, I'm with you on the pregnant with clothes thing. I think what makes me look "just fat" without a shirt is the caved in beer gut belly button thing. If that makes any sense! I think once my uterus moves up past my belly button, it will look much better. :)

I agree that stretch marks appear to be genetic.  Creams and hydration can help make the skin more elastic and therefore a little more resilient to sudden weight gain, but if it's in your genes some are going to happen at some point anyway.

Even if you get tons of stretch marks, you come to peace with them....no need to obsess or worry.  I was 103 lbs (and 5'8")before my first and thought stretch marks would be the end of the world. They are not, for sure.

 

I find that my bump has pushed out my layer of fat (which is all at the bottom of my belly, so I jiggle on top of my baby belly.  Which is just SO sexy, as you can imagine.  those pants that go below the belly?  Yeah...they mostly just push that fat roll UP and really tight, and look pretty disgusting.  Im going to need to be much rounder before I pull those off!

Yup, I too did EVERYTHING that I could think of to prevent stretchmarks.. It's genetic, I have them anyway.
