well my dear Dee!! I think that's not that much weight! 1kg is equal to about 2.2 lbs, I just looked it up! You've gained about 9 lbs...STOP FREAKING! I've gained more then that! It sounds like you were pretty small prebaby so it's more noticiable on you! Everyone carries different and you should NOT be concerned. I freaked out some too there for a while but then got over it quick! You can't diet while pregnant...you know better then that, girly! And if you didn't know already...you're going to get some "pudge" we gotta deal with it though it's not fun! If you want to start a site, I just started one at www.piczo.com it's pretty easy to use, a lot of b___ton pushing and I figured it out...and I'm HORRIBLE on the computer. There's a place were you download pictures from your computer...you hit a "browse" b___ton and select the one you want and the computer does the rest! Its pretty easy!! I'd love to see your baby belly! And if people ask you about twins, I'd just humour them and say "No, quadruplets!" I think at one time or another every pregnant girly gets asked "twins" and we just want to back hand them! You are fine and healthy....get your piczo site going and show us that beautiful baby and belly!!! OH and stop freaking out! 4 kg? That's great girly! You are growing a baby!

dee...9 pounds is nothing compared to when i was pregnant with my daughter!! i put on 25 pounds in the first half of my pregnancy!!! 50 total!!! by the time i was 12 weeks, everyone was convinced i was having twins!!! i was only 98 pounds before i got pregnant, so the weight gain was VERY noticable. i think 9 pounds sounds about right for you.....i'm 21 weeks now and lost weight at the beginning, but looking at your pics, my belly seems a lot BIGGER than yours!! lol. if you want to see mine to compare, you can go on myspace.com and look me up by my email add: [email protected] or you can give me your and i'll email you the pics...so you can see for yourself that you aren't big at all!!!

I am only 17 weeks and I've gained 9 lbs... I don't think you have anything to worry about ,as long as you are eating healthy. I think with smaller girls, like yourself, the baby doesn't have anywhere else to go, so you get more of a pronounced belly. A girl I work with was 4 months and larger than your picture... she was so small to begin with that the baby had nowhere else to go. She had to leave work 2 months before her due date because she was so big it was uncomfortable to stand for more than 15 minutes. Every body shows differently... I'm sure you are right on track!

You look perfectly normal to me. Actually, my stomach is bulging out more than yours and I am only 18 weeks. :)

Wow - I wish I could say that! I started this pregnancy heavy (5'3" 172 lbs) and in a size 12...I am almost 27 weeks and I have gained about 25 lbs and I cannot wear maternity 12's....I have to buy maternity 16's. It is my own fault though....I ate like crazy in my first trimester b/c it helped reduce nausea...and gained 16 lbs at 12 weeks. I have done okay since then...but boy do I wish I would have only gained 8 lbs at 21 weeks! Never fear...you are better off than me :)

dee23 - I looked at your website and you look awesome for 21 weeks! I'm 5'8", 142 lbs, only 11 weeks and my bloated belly looks very similar to yours! I'm hoping the bloating will go away soon, and just have baby bump, but who knows? You look good, healthy, and definitely don't need to diet!!!

Dee lovey! Your belly is perfect! You were like me prebaby..even some smaller and you look great! I know its scary gaining that weight...I've totally been there and now I'm getting it in my thighs and back and I'm freaking out! But I know its going to happen and as I sit here and type this my little girl is going crazy inside me, moving all around! I love it! I think she likes it when I eat!!! I think you look great and don't fret! I saw some girl friends that I didn't see for a week and they were like "OMG you've gotten so big since last week!!!" I was like WHAT THE???? but then I got over it and I'm excited! You look great and keep your site updated so we can check you and baby out!!! YAY BABY!

thx so much for your condolences girls. i guess like myself.....u guys proberbly think u are alot bigger than u are.......i guess in my situation, it doesnt help for everyone to be affirming my thoughts.....i guess that its only the ppl who are going through the same ordeal, like being pregnant, that really does understand....nobody really knows what its like from a pregnant womens perspective after they have been critisized.....it can feel quite cruel, even if it might seem like a harmless comment. question, dh was a 9 pounder at birth, and i was 8 pound 6, will that affect the size do u think?
