Small pregnancy complaint

Anyone else in that not quite looking pregnant but just looking overweight stage? I know a lot of you mamas are quite thin so you probably dont pass through this stage but I'm 145 normally and 5'6" so not skinny - anyhow - I just look like I've put on 15 too many lbs (though I havent gainned that many yet) Just waiting for the bump to grow from belly to baby bump - I know - silly complaint right ....

I have that same problem, and it lasts forever. I still just look like I have a gut.

Re: Small pregnancy complaint

I'm over 100 pounds overweight to begin with. So yeah, I'll just look fat for a long time.

I was so there with my first - but i didnt feel chubby just pregnant so I just keep thinking people were crazy - 6,7 months along and people said things to me like, "oh I thought you were just a little chubby" I was working at a swimming pool no less as a pool manager in our uniforms everyday - 2 piece - LOL I so wish I was that confident to walk around everyday and not think twice

with my second I dont really remember much other than thinking I wanted to try and enjoy my pregnancy more than the first - my youngest two are only 15 months apart and my dh was working out of state until I was 5 months along - i really dont remember almost anything from the begining of that pregnancy

I think what makes it worse this time is that after baby two I never got my body back to the same degree - I kept kidding (seriously) to my dh that at night relaxed 18 months pp I still could easily look at least 6 months pregnant with my first - so now I'm 5 months along and still have baby number two sitting on top of baby number three -

so here i am this morning - 21 weeks tomorrow
