Here's the only real shot I have of my belly at the moment. This was about a week and a half ago at 17 weeks.
P.S. Spray Parks are awesome. :)
I am about 21.5 weeks and mentioned to a woman at my son's school today that I have an ultrasound appointment next week and she was shocked! I'm 5'6'' and according to my friends I just look like I've gained a bit of weight but pregnancy isn't obvious. I'm jealous, honestly. Only time I look truly pregnant is after a big meal!
Hotsauce, I'm hearing the same thing from people I know. I'm just a shade under 5'5" and no one seems to believe I'm pregnant. Summer dresses help, I guess. This is my first and I have nothing to compare it to, but every pregnant woman I speak to insists that I look "great" or barely pregnant. I was worried enough about it that I told my midwife and she laughed. She measured me and all is fine.
I'll post a pic when I actually have something to show. Right now, I still just look like I've got a beer gut.
Gelato, have you gained much weight at all? I put on fifteen pounds right away (like in the first twelve weeks) and haven't gained anything else since other than maybe a pound or two. The scale reads the same as it did ten weeks ago. I feel the baby all the time but there's not really a 'bump', just huge boobs and my thighs/butt are bigger. :) I gained weight and a lot of it very steadily with my son and was quite obviously pregnant by twenty weeks. It's so different this time! I start my sixth month tomorrow so surely in the next few weeks the belly should be poppin'...
To me my belly is quite obvious but then I look in the mirror and I look like I just have belly chub. To me it's obvious because I am huge compared to normal... but I guess considering I'm 5'7" I just look bigger now. Considering my butt/thighs/upper arms have gained weight too, now I just look bigger overall, bah. I am almost as big now at 19 weeks as I was at delivery with my first kiddo, though. (This is my third, now...) When I look back on my 20 week belly bump pic from his pregnancy, whoa, I don't even look pregnant at ALL - now I look (to me) like I'm ready to go any day. Heh.
My belly is definitely obvious. In fact, I have now received 7 different comments from people (usually older women, whom I don't know) about how "HUGE" I am and about how I must be ready to pop any day now. They're quite shocked when I tell them I'm only halfway done. Heh.
I'm 5'8" but I carry ALL out in front. As of today, I'm 22 weeks and have gained 20 pounds.
oh my. some people! I had the very funny situation where one day a friend told me I looked "very" pregnant and I was annoyed at him. The next day another friend told me I was so slim and didn't look pregnant at all. I wanted to smack her too. I was laughing at myself through both conversations. Can't people just say, "you look great!" or shut up?? I have yet to gain one lb but I am back to my starting weight- I think. I'm hoping the dr isn't too pissy tomorrow...
Ack!! I can only imagine my response!
