Anyone waiting to show out there?? Thought we could wait together. I'm 5'6" and prepregnancy 204. I lost 11 pounds and have gained 2 back. 15 weeks.

Hi Sarah!! I am 17 weeks and waiting to show also. I'm 5'6" and 215 prepregnancy. I lost 10 lbs so far and just can't seem to gain weight yet, which I guess is ok, since I was overweight to begin with. I think I'm just eating really healthy for the first time in my life. Anyways, I'll love to chat. How has your pregnancy been so far?


Sarah25 - March 22

Sounds like we are in the same boat. I'm going for a check-up today and I'm curious to see if my doctor will say anything about the no weight gain. I think no drinking for me had something to do with some weight coming off. I've been so excited the days are just creeping by. It's hard to know what to expect with my body type being that it's my first pregnancy. How's everything with you?

I am also waiting to pop. I have quite strong ab muscles so I guess its their fault. Still keeping things in place. I've looked the same for the past 4 weeks or so and I am 24 weeks now. Still wearing pre-pregnancy shirts and clothes.

I am 23 weeks. I am 5'5" pre-pregnancy weight 186. I lost 2 lbs at the beginning. I have gained a total of 7 so far. I am still wearing regular clothes.


Sarah25 - March 23

Wow! 23 and 24 weeks! I thought for sure I'd show by then, maybe not huh?? I went for a check-up yesterday and the NP showed me how to feel my uterus. That was pretty cool.

Sarah......how did they say to feel your uterus? i'm 15 weeks and i try and feel for something all the time. i think i feel it, but i;, not sure and my next appt isn't until April 6th.


Sarah25 - March 23

It was halfway between the bellyb___ton and pelvic bone. Just deeply ma__sage up and down with 2 fingers (back and forth like motion) I feel like a ridgy type feeling where the top is. Wish I could show you! April 7th is only 2 weeks if you can't.

thanks Sarah, now that you've described how it feels, i think i have felt it. i just get scared of pressing on my belly too much and/or too hard. just my paranoia. thanks for the info. best of luck

Hi I'm almost 16 weeks and I'm showing like crazy. (But it's twins)


18tobe - March 24

im 23 weeks and still wear prepregnancy clothes also. although not ALL of them lol. some jeans dont fit anymore.


Revel - March 25

well im 23 weeks pregnant i started out kinda big but i lost ALOT of weight i just now the last 2 weeks gained 6 pounds and popped out i didnt notice until i hiot about 20 weeks then my tummy emmerged more lol


ataylor724 - March 25

I'm so glad to see I'm not the only one! I'm 20 weeks 5 days and people laugh at me lol. I'm 5'6" and 135 prepregnancy. I dropped to 118 and now am at a steady 126 and can't seem to get up from there. I did have strong ab muscles like you jellybabe so I guess that's the reason. I can't wait to buy maternity clothes but as for now I'm still wearing size 5 low rise jeans and even they're kinda big. I thought I'd be upset about getting big, but instead I'm upset about being small! I wish I'd pop, I'm tired of my lungs being crushed so much and I heard that theres a slight relief once the belly starts growing out. I can't wait for the first stranger to ask me when I'm due... good luck ladies!


Sarah25 - April 3

Well, I'm almost 17 weeks now. I've gained about 5 lbs. of my weight back and the pants are getting mighty tight. Sometimes I think I'm showing, other times I think I just look fat. I wonder when you are overweight to start if the stomach still gets hard or if it stays mushy with the bulge that was already there.


Chrissythefairy - April 3

im 16 weeks and im showing, but at the point were i pretty much look like i have a large gut, you would do a double take and wonder "is she pregnant? or is that a nasty beer belly?" im 4'10 and am now 108lbs i lost 2 in the first 12 weeks then gained 5 during week 13-16. Everyone says im really gona show cause im so tiny. Oh and thanks Sarah im sittin here rubbin my belly tryna see what i can feel now : )


Chrissythefairy - April 3

Sarah25 - April 4

Chrissythefairy, I'm due Sept 13th! I'm curious if they will change the due date or not at my big ultrasound. It's on April 19th. I can't wait to find out what I'm having!
