I’m 5’3″ and before the pregnancy was around 115 lbs. I’ll be 23 weeks tomorrow and have gained around 14 lbs. My bump’s been pretty slow growing – I spent a long time just looking like a chubbier version of myself. I did a lot of yoga and jogging before the pregnancy and have still been continuing with both to a less strenuous extent. Unfortunately, I’m gaining weight all over, not just in the belly. I was a little bootylicious before, but feel like my butt and thighs have doubled in size since:( I can still fit in non-preggo pants by doing the elastic band trick, but don’t know how much longer that will last.

This was me at almost 15 weeks (sorry, I don’t have any earlier than this)

And this is me a couple of days ago at 22.5 weeks.

I am 5’0″ and short waisted, and I just went straight out, all belly.  I am currently 30 wks and gained about 30 lbs overall (well, ok, I lost 10 during my first trimester then gained 30 so I’m calling it a net gain of 20 b/c it makes me feel better hahaha).  I have pretty much just been all belly, which everyone constantly feels the need to point out – you’re so big, you’re all belly, you’re sticking straight out today, look how big you are…etc. etc.  I’m always like…thanks?  Smile

I’m taller, like 5’6, but one of my co-workers just had a baby and she’s very short. For awhile she was all belly and looked like the just stuffed something under her shirt. But in the last month and a half or so her face did start to puff up a bit and she swelled a bit everywhere, which she was not happy about since she’s normally a pretty petite girl. But everyone is different!

I’m 5’2 and currently weigh 110lbs at nearly 17 weeks. For comparison, here’s my 12 week, 14 week and 16 week bump pics. I’ve really only gained weight in my belly, boobies and booty but not more than 1-2lbs total.

No picture sorry. 5’3″ 110 lbs pre-pregnancy. Did not really blow up until third trimester. All stomach. I felt like a cow.

@esqbee:  Aw, thanks! You make me feel better. I’m so jealous of the ladies who only gain in their stomach or who show really early on! We’ll see what happens over the next 15 weeks or so!
