Growing Belly

Hey ladies! Hope everything is going perfect with your pregnancies! I have a question about my growing belly. I am 4 months( about 17-18 wks.) and I don't really look pregnant. I didn't have a flat stomach when I got pregnant and I was always on the chunky side but my stomach just looks like fat..I guess just a regular stomach and I wonder when I will get my pregnant belly?

I just said something about this on my stethoscope post, but the convincing factor that made me not just feel "fat" was the fact that I cant suck in anymore. I try to suck in and everyting just stays there. So maybe your stomach is a baby belly and not just fat. Try sucking in, if it all goes away like before, then maybe you just are growing at a different rate, I noticed mine at about 18 weeks, baby belly welcome!

Hi Margaret. I too suffer from "looking fat syndrome"... isn't it frustrating??? I will be 18 weeks on Monday and so far my very lower stomach is getting rounder and firmer but all that has really done is push the fat further up!! So now I have this kinda roll above my belly b___ton when I sit!!! It's awful! I think that as soon as we are a little bit bigger, this will even itself out a bit. Good luck with your pregnancy - sounds like you're due the same exact time as I am... Dec. 26ish, right?

I felt the same way, I was so excited to start showing. I am now 21 weeks and I am showing a little. I also had a little gut. It's hard to tell when someone is going to start showing. Everybody shows at different times. It will come and when it does you will start to be even more miserable as you go along.

oh my gosh!! That was the first thing I noticed! I noticed a long time ago that I couldn't suck that gut in anymore! My boyfriend just laughs at me when I try and everything just stays put! Thanx Karlie!
