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...


I acutally didn't get much more stretch marks last pregnancy, because I used olive oil on my tummy and breasts. It has alot better properties for increasing elastin in the skin. :) It looks like I'll have to whip it out soon this time too, cuz I'm getting more marks on my breasts. bag.gif

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. :)

 


YES!!!!! It's the sunken in belly button and the skin that didn't snap back from baby number 2. I HAVE noticed my belly button is more shallow though, so it looks like it'll pop out soon. I love my maternity pants right now, cuz the ones I have, the elastic stretches up almost to my breasts and makes my tummy look more round instead of flabby. lol

I'm noticing mine is more shallow, too! Should be all nice and rounded out soon. Wow... we notice funny things when pregnant, huh?

It is weird. lol "wow I didn't realize how deep my belly button was before!" blah! I'm excited and happy about getting further along, I just want to be fit. I was well on my way to that when I BECAME pregnant. I lost 15 lbs with running and weight training and as soon as I hit 15lbs lost I was preggo. lol

I think outtie belly buttons are the cutest, and I have always had the WORLDS deepest inny... I'm so excited that it's pushing out and it's a matter of time before I have an outtie. Keep growing little man! :)

post #147 of 325

My inny was super deep too before I got pregnant with Lyra. It never went back to being that deep. I liked when it popped out because I could give it a really good deep cleaning ;)

I especially love when you see a pregnant woman with a tight maternity shirt on and their outie pokes at the shirt. hehe

About stretch marks-

 

I read somewhere that the more active you stay during pregnancy, the less the stretch marks are. Being active helps slow down your skin stretching, because you're staying "limber" so your skin/body isn't tightening up then tearing when stretched out.

How active is one supposed to stay?  I walked about 2 miles a day and worked full time when I was pregnant with #1 and I still got them.  :)

Stretch marks are largely genetic. You either either predisposed to get them or not. 

 

 

post #157 of 325

When do most women typically START getting them? I haven't developed any new ones (at 20w6d w/ baby #1) - even on my boobs which have grown three full cup sizes since conception... And my belly is now much farther out than my boobs and I don't have any visible stretch marks yet, but my sister has them pretty bad from her first baby....

post #158 of 325

I think it depends, but I mostly hear women say they got them at the end when things are really stretching quickly.

post #159 of 325

I had one or two prior to birth, and then I had a bunch of them crop up around my navel after the baby was born. They weren't purple or red, just shiny and white from the get-go. I can't see them now.

 

I have one from this pregnancy that has come out over an old scar, you can see it in this pic:
