Wow, you are all looking so cute and pregnant!!! At 13w2d I am still looking mostly fat, but just barely starting to look actually pregnant.  Are random people wanting to touch your bellies yet?


Happy Wife Since '05 and NEW MOM! in '12

So far just my father-in-law! As far as I'm concerned that was pretty random... since the baby is still below my belly button I suppose he more gave my intestines a rub. Either way I felt pretty weird about it :P

KelseyWhitney, are you having back pain? Your lower back is really rounded. That can cause a lot of back/pelvic issues, especially pain, and it gets worse as baby gets bigger. There are exercises that can help though.

yeah I do. I go to the chiropractor twice a week. My hips and lower back slips out of place easily, some times causes me to not be able to walk for a minute. Than I'm alright. I also have a titled uterus at my ultrasound at 15 weeks it hadn't corrected itself. so I'm sure im in for a lot of back pain.

Plus. I have a really large butt. So it might look like it sticks even farther out. But exercises would be appreciated...chiropractors are expensive.

I wasn't kidding about the butt!!!! I am embarassed to put that up but hey...when I push down my butt fat my back looks normal. Too bad that's impossible to take a picture with my phone while attempting to do. You got me all freaked out now about my back! ;)

 

ANYWAYS...17 weeks. :)

Beautiful bellies! I'm 18 weeks and I still got nothin'. Went to the midwife today and clocked in at a whopping two pounds weightgain. I suppose I shouldn't complain, but I can't wait for the baby bump to arrive!

Everyone looks great!  I'm too fat to post my picture at this point, I can tell there's a baby bump but I am afraid it just looks like pudge to everyone but me so far. I can't wait until it's obvious that it's a baby and not too many jelly donuts. You all look beautiful.

ARG!  Girl, you are beautiful!  Enjoy how you look, no matter what!  Once I find my cable to attach my camera to the computer, I'll post mine and I'm fat!  Enjoy this time, because no matter how you look, this event is happening to YOU and YOU need to have good memories from it!

 I agree with Conchobar... Work that bump, no matter what it looks like!  For the past few weeks I had been getting glances by people, who seemed ready to "oooh and ahh" but then thought: "Huh, maybe she's just fat".  You could just see the thought process passing through their minds...  It was kind of amusing!

LMAO! Montessorimama...I know EXACTLY the kind of looks you're talking about! Cafepress has a shirt that says something along the lines of 'If you're wondering if I'm pregnant or fat..I am pregnant. and fat.' lol I want it so bad!

19 weeks along now. I've only suddenly popped out this much (I still feel like my bump is so little) in the past week or two. More and more people are wanting to grab my belly every day. Luckily the second trimester has brought back a much happier and less grumpy version of myself, so I don't mind quite as much as if they'd tried it a month ago.

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply; family issues.

 

Anyway, I couldn't find the exact link I was looking for, but here's a couple sites that have exercises for helping your lower back during pregnancy.

I need to get brave enough to post some pics to this thread. I'm so sad that yet another pregnancy will pass by with no one able to tell that I'm pregnant. I just spent 5 days with my mother, expecting her to guess right away. She just thinks it's from when my thyroid went crazy & I put on 30lbs at the beginning of the year. But she'd SEEN ME since then. I was hoping she wouldn't guess, but at the same time, it's annoying that my own mother didn't even notice that I'm pregnant.since I'm 19 weeks with my 4th & imo I'm HUGE.

wait- your mom doesn't know you're pregnant?  did you tell her?  judging from what you wrote in the post above, maybe things aren't great with her.  hope everything played out ok.  i'm too shy to post pics, too.  : )
