I'm 17wks 6 days and barely showing. I've gained about 5-6 lbs when will I look preggo and not fat?!?!


C - June 17

Soon...I started looking pregnant and not fat at about 19 wks....

That is a hard question to answer. Everyone is different and it depends on the frame of your body and how much weight you gain. I am almost 24 weeks pregnant and barely just started showing. I thought my belly was never going to pop out. My DH still says all the time, "I can't believe you hardly look pregnant and you are 6 months pregnant now." Even though I don't look very pregnant, I feel huge sometimes just because i am not used to my stomach being round and I feel bloated all the time.

I forgot to mention, I have a medium frame and am 5'8" and have gained around 12-15 pounds so far at 24 weeks. I was thin when I became pregnant.

I am 16 weeks and gained 0 lbs, my belly has begun to pop out, still easy to hide. I am more concerned about the lack of weight gain.

Hi Erin: I'm in the same boat as u....I'm 19 weeks pregnant (1st preg)...I'm 23 and 5'3" and weigh 112 lbs....I have not gained any weight at all and i have just started to show-up...not much, easy to hide...since i didnt gain any weight, my doc sees me every 2 weeks instead of 4 weeks....she said tat the baby is ok and my not gaining weight wud NOT hurt the baby but wud only make preg more painful for me...Wishing you a healthy baby and pregnancy.

It'll happen, just hits everyone differently. I'm 20 wks and just starting to show, but still in reg clothes. I've gained 9 lbs total, but up until week 17, had only gained 4. But the kid's fine, normal size, so everything's cool. In the end, we all inevitably look like beach b___s.

Kelly, what do you mean that it would only make pregnancy more painful for you? I'm in the same boat. I'm 17 weeks, still haven't gained BACK the weight I lost, and only have a little pooch. I am anxious to see my doctor next week to find out if this might be a problem.


hi - June 19

Dont worry my first u couldnt tell till about 20weeks that said this was normal because my stomach muscles were so tight.My second was pretty much the same but this was because i lost alot of my body weight with severe morning sickness. Now im having my third and u could see a little bulge since i was 14weeks Good luck dont worry the slower your stomach shows the less chance of stretch marks
