Ladies, I love all of your bellies and I am so jealous.  Still just feeling fat and at almost 15 weeks!  I would like this baby to show itself so I can stop blurting out to everyone I meet that I'm pregnant so they don't think I'm just fat!



Baby_Cakes's Avatar Baby_Cakes 02:41 PM 01-31-2011

thanks copper!

Lisa - I definitely see a difference there!  CUTE!

Yell - I still just feel fat.  I think b/c I wear maternity I look a lot more pg than I do in not maternity.  At work, still nobody has said anything to me at all.  I think in normal clothes I just look plain chubby!!  Dont worry, your belly will be here soon!

Me too!  I'm only 11 weeks, but I feel so FAT.  Not pregnant, just fat.

Yeah, I feel FAT too! Its obvious to me that its just baby, but not to other people! Its funny cause I'll try to suck in and it won't work cause its pretty much solid. lol. I'll take a pic at 14 weeks though.

I've been very amused about the whole baby belly thing.

I am overweight (starting pregnancy at 230! Woo :P) and I carry my fat in my belly - in my family we don't do soft fat, it's firm!

So I bought and wore maternity shirts and things before because they fit well and looked nice. Why not?

 

But now I can just grin and wear maternity clothes and people are all excited "You're showing!"

 

And yeah, no. I've been taking pictures and nothing much is changing. I can't suck it in like I used to, but that's about the only difference.

 

I can feel the curve of my uterus so it is sticking out, but not enough to account for how I look. It's just really nice now to get to grin and have people be all excited about my belly fat ;)

Hahaha, thanks Beckily- I needed a laugh this morning.  I started pregnancy not overweight - 5'5 140lbs, pretty average I think.  BUT I carry all of my weight in my belly and have so far gained 10 lbs.  My belly is not hard, it's just mushy.  So I could maybe trick people into thinking I'm showing already in maternity clothes, but I am too embarassed so I wear things to cover up.  It's probably time just to embrace it all.

This is me! I don't mind looking pregnant if the pooch is from the baby, but right now it's just fat, so I feel sort of weird disguising it as baby. Though technically it is caused by the baby so... Considering getting some tops to go with the maternity jeans I've had to wear for weeks now. To prove my point, this is me at 14 weeks today and looking just like I did at 12 weeks - fluffy belly but no noticeable baby bump.

You guys all look so cute!  Love the bumps!  I haven't taken any pictures yet.  Last time I started at 15 weeks.  I look pretty gross right now, so maybe I'll hold off.  My belly looks pretty darn big though. 


Baby_Cakes's Avatar Baby_Cakes 12:01 PM 02-02-2011

Camer - What a cute bump!! I have a pic in my undies too but was too shy to post it!  Rock on! 


camer's Avatar camer 12:09 PM 02-02-2011

haha after that first birth ALL modesty went out the window! (i had quite the crowd of firemen and paramedics watching, lol)


Tamera's Avatar Tamera 12:38 PM 02-02-2011

Me too! Well I started at 237 and I was 243 at my appt last week. I carry most of my weight in my belly as well. I started wearing maternity pants at 10 weeks. I started my last pregnancy at 262 lbs and I was 302 lbs the day I delivered, so I've had to work pretty hard even to make it to this point. I'm trying to be careful and not gain too much weight, but I also don't want to obsess about it.

 

I'll post a pic after I take a shower when I don't have jungle hair ;)

I'm going to have to start doing belly pics!  You all look so cute!!  My hubby is out of town this week and took the camera so i can't do it until the middle of next week!  I have a definite belly now!


Baby_Cakes's Avatar Baby_Cakes 10:09 AM 02-03-2011

My belly is practically GONE today!  What gives!?  I even pulled out a pair of shorts I wore all summer just to prove to myself they would never fit, and I was just getting used to my belly, but they fit fine!  Buttoned, zipped.  Looked cute.  Made me wish it were summer! 

 

What a bummer! eyesroll.gif

My belly has changed shape! Instead of hanging low, it's curving high. So I shall post a picture. I find it very pleasing. This is me fresh from the shower. 14 weeks today!

That's totally a pregnant belly!


eakelly5's Avatar eakelly5 07:35 PM 02-06-2011

I kept bugging DF over the past week or so, "Do I look fat or pregnant? Do you think people think I'm just fat and need to be wearing bigger clothes? Do I really look pregnant?" I think the answer is pretty clear now, though ROTFLMAO.gif

 

I swear my belly was not that big (or pointy! WTF) yesterday.


Baby_Cakes's Avatar Baby_Cakes 07:45 PM 02-06-2011

LOVE it Erica!  You definitely look preggers, NOT fat!! 

 

Here is me!  I'm bad about taking these on a specific day.  So this is 12w5d:

Aw neat!  Hmm, well I keep leaning towards girl but so many things make me think boy.  I'm DYING to find out.  I'm so afraid to really put any stock in my intuition!

This is me at 13 weeks, 6 days with my first baby.  I've been taking pics once a week.  This isn't the official one which will be tomorrow at 14 wks, 4 days (Tuesdays just work for us).   Anyway, I'll have to figure out how to post the progression, though we started at 9 wks instead of right away.  Oh well.  Anyway, here's "us".  Sorry it's a bit blurry...phone pic.
