I’m a 12 and not pregnant so I can’t send you pics. Buuut I’m sure that you won’t be mistaken as “chubby”, but instead as “glowingly pregnant” as the months progress dearie! 🙂

I worry about the same thing, except here’s a pic of my sister. Size 14 and 8 months pregnant. Obviously, she looked pregnant for quite some time. Probably from about the 5th month mark.

I was a 20/22 pre-pregnancy, and I carry most of my weight in my midsection. I’m just about 19 weeks, and I’m starting to look pregnant not just chubby (finally!) although I will say that at my last OB appt I was only up 3lbs total. So my body is changing, but I’m sure in a few more weeks I’ll be looking pregnant.

@mwitter80: Wow, your sister looked awesome!
I don’t even know what size I was. I had a very recent weight gain from a pregnancy and where I miscarried. But I was (and am still, trying to lose the weight, now I’m a 14 and my baby is 3 months old) a big girl. Here’s a picture where you can see my belly… it was quite obvious I was preggo!

There’s a great community on BabyCenter called “Plus Size & Pregnant”. Here’s a link to a thread with plus sized baby bumps.

I’ve always wondered the same thing! I’m a size 14 now and wondered how much of a “bump” I’d get when pregnant. I always seem to see the cute bumps on size 2 and size 6 women and wondered if I’d be the same.

I was just thinking the same thing! I think I’m a size 12 now and just wondering if I’m going look like a whale! But all of you ladies looked stunning! I can’t wait:)

I am not a size 12 or up, however, I have to say that girls that I know who are look AMAZING when they were preggo. They carried it so much nicer and clean than I did. I had the chubby look and still have the chubby look at 8 months. My best friend is a bigger boned and she has looked wonderful her entire pregnancy, same thing with a girl I work with. Just wanted to add my 2 cents!

I was a size 10-12 before i got pregnant, and i did not show for a while, but now that i have gained too much weight you can see my belly. I feel like a whale, lol, but everyone tells me my belly is all neat and nice looking. I just had weight problems all my life and gaining 40 pounds seems too excesive, but i am healthy and baby is doing good (she is bigger too), i just have 5 more weeks to go! Sorry i do not have a pic to share…

I was a 18/20 prepregnancy and pregnant, I was all belly. Just like a big bowling ball in front, but normal in the back. I thought I’d be huge too, but I wasn’t. I also lost all the weight I gained right after birth.
Being plus size doesn’t mean you’ll be a swollen blob. 🙂

@MsMamaBear: lol @ swollen blob…. that is my fear though! thank you for easing my mind 🙂
