I am 5'2 and was about 180 lbs before I got pregnant. I am now 17 weeks and not showing at all. Will it take longer for me to show because i am overweight?

Do not be hard on yourself. You will most likely show a little later than most women because of the weight. Just enjoy your pregnancy and make the best of it!!!!!!! CoNgRaTs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am 5'1 and weighed about 115 lbs before pregnancy. It was around 18-19 weeks before I began to 'show' (although I did begin to get thicker around the middle at about the end of the first trimester) and now at 24.5 weeks I am just now at a point that people are pretty sure I am actually pregnant and not just gaining weight. My point is... Do not worry about it. Make sure you are eating healthy and getting proper care and enjoy your pregnancy. You may show a little later but every woman and every pregnancy is different no matter what your starting weight is. As Sarah suggests, Just enjoy it. And Congrats!

MICHELLE- I'm so glad someone finally brought up being overweight and pregnant. I'm only about 5'5 or so and weigh about 195 Lbs. which is a lot of extra weight. I'm exactly 10 weeks and have lost about 7 Lbs. so far without even trying. I too am wondering when i'm going to begin to show. Obviously after the first trimester but I can't wait till then, I'm so excited! I was actually worried that i would never conceive because of my weight but I guess not! lol

I believe it does take overweight woman longer to show than bone thin woman. Mostly because it is just not as obvious. Don't stress about it. Take it from this overweight woman, you will begin to show!! Congrats! :)
