So I will start us off even though this is the first pregnancy where I am beginning the process feeling self-conscious about my body. I have never been overweight when falling pregnant, so this is new for me. I am 13 lbs. over a healthy BMI, mostly due to the friged winter in MA and my PP eating habits...
I'm kind of surprised no one else has posted a before pic! Don't leave me hangin' ladies! (no pun intended, lol) I am tempted to post another one where I'm not bloated. Happy Mother's Day All!
You're brave and I hate to leave you hanging all by yourself :)
i want to do a weekly picture, I'm just shy of 6 weeks so maybe we'll start at 6 weeks. Depending on how brave I'm feeling I may post it, or I may wait until I'm actually showing, because right now it's bloat and a little extra padding.
Yay!!! This thread was absolute fav from my March 2013 DDC. I checked in every day to see how all our bodies were growing. I am trying to embrace and accept my body for its imperfections and look forward to being able to let it hang out soon without reservations...I do still tuck in my tummy in public a little bit, but with so much bloat it is getting tiring. If people think I am fat, so be it. I am a little bit. But mostly my gut is bloat!
LOL, Rosie, yup, my belly is now looking quite similar! And I was easily able to pull in my flabby tum before I got pg, now, no way Jose. It sticks right out there. I think even though there isn't much uterus yet that your bump is super cute!! A bump is a bump when it is *because* of baby, even if there isn't much baby in it yet :) .
Ajoye, I am still unsure if in public I look pregnant or just chubby with a beer gut, lol. Glad you see it though.
I feel like I look way more pregnant than it shows in this picture. I'm trying to hold my shirt tight against my belly so you can see, but I don't see a belly here. Weird! I must be much less bloated today than yesterday. I'm 13 weeks.
