I took bump pics from Week 8 – when there wasn’t much of anything to show. For the first few weeks, I’d hold one hand under my belly, and one hand under my boobs, to kind of ‘show’ where the baby would eventually be.

As you get bigger, you don’t need your hands. ๐Ÿ˜‰

@MrsDW:  Hi!  That juice is GROSS!  I’ve gained 3 lbs so far which they aren’t thrilled about. Honestly I felt like I gained a ton more so I”m happy.. haha!  They only want me to gain up to 15… I’m 13 weeks. Most of my pants don’t fit or are VERY uncomfy already so 3 lbs is much less than I’d thought.

I won’t know the results of the test until they call… if they do, I have to get more testing. If they don’t, everything’s fine. I wish they’d call either way!

 

They couldn’t find the heartbeat on the doppler so did an internal US and I got to see the baby again!!!!  It’s amazing how much s/he changed in one week. LONG legs!!!  I was paranoid I’d get a peek at the parts because Darling Husband wasn’t there! I didn’t see parts.. so wondering if that means girl?  We’ll find out Feb 21 which feels so far away:(

What did you ladies do when your wedding ring got tight?

@CindyRelly:  your pants getting tighter is from the bloat too ๐Ÿ™‚ and baby rearranging your organs too. ๐Ÿ™‚ 3lbs really isn’t that much. Just try to make healthy choices and eveything should be good. 13w is really really early to see any parts. My scans in 3 weeks and it feels like forever too lol.

@CindyRelly:  34 weeks over here and my rings are still on! I have a decoy (fake) ring on standby in case I need to swap them out! Some mornings it’s tighter than others, but it’s still on my finger! My doc also wanted me to only gain 15. I’m up to 18 right now and they haven’t said anything. I’m curious if they’ll mention it at my next (36w) appointment.

Pre-preg I was more or less a 20/22 and am 5’7″. I just hit 19 weeks today, am down a total of about 4 pounds, but def have a bump. (So lovingly called the Ninja Dome!) It is a B shape without spanx or high waisted pants. (There are these fabulous cami tops that are basically maternity shapers for about $4 at Ross, they work great and the extra support feels wonderful!)

With my first pregnancy I was about 185 and didn’t show until at least 20 weeks and never got very big. My second started around 195 and I delivered 12 pounds less. I seriously didn’t show until about 7 months! My instructors had NO idea I was pregnant until I left for bedrest in the hospital. This time around I popped VERY early. 

14 weeks

And this is from last week at 18 weeks

i started at 5’4″ 217 lbs (size 18 or so).  at 20.5 weeks, i’m up 6-8 lbs depending on the day.  as someone who normally carries the majority of weight in my belly, i thought for sure i would never show!  but i have definitely gotten comments on my bump since about 17 weeks or so.  i think it also depends what you wear.  i personally feel more comfortable in loose fitting, empire waist type shirts, but i find if i wear a more form fitting shirt, i definitely look more pregnant vs. chubby.

Thought I would share my almost 20w picture. I feel like I am finally starting to have a baby belly and not just a “ate too much food” belly. Pre baby my high weight was 260 (at 6w appointment)and 5’9 which put me at size 18 pants and 1x or 2x shirts. Now at 20 weeks I lost 15 lbs, still size 18 pants and mostly 2x shirts.

When did you plus size mamas start feeling baby move?  I’m jealous of others as far along as me already feeling things (I’m 16 wks)… my RN said I should in the next 4 weeks but weight can make it delayed:(

@CindyRelly:  I just got my first kicks this week at 20 weeks. But once I felt the first one, I literally feel them every day. And honestly, 20 weeks isn’t really abnormal for a first pregnancy. So I don’t think the weight makes too much difference.

@CindyRelly:  I’m with Mrs Lox and didn’t feel any real movement until this week (20w). My dr warned me I might not feel any until 21 or 22 weeks. And it bothered me tons that I wasn’t feeling any and freaked me out. You’ll feel it soon momma ๐Ÿ™‚
