Did your face get fat?

I'm 33 weeks and noticing my face is getting a little fatter. I may be developing a little double chin, too. My sister was like "you finally look pregnant and your face looks fatter too!" I really hope it goes back down once I lose the baby weight. Has this happened to anyone else? Did your face go back down? I'm pretty sure it has to do with bloating, as my feet/ankles are starting to swell.

  • yes, that happened to me. I totally understand how you feel right now. My sister told me that same thing too! She's like, "Damn, your face looks fatter! You even look pregnant." After I had my baby, my face went back to normal (3 days after). I had my feet/ankles also very swollen and that went away a week after I had my baby but that was because I had an IV and all the liquids made me stay swollen longer. But don't worry you will go back to normal...

  • Yes my face got fat too! And I didn't even notice! My legs and ankles were also swollen more than I thought - the reason I noticed was that the day after I delivered, I looked down and saw they looked skinny again! It goes away so soon after delivery.... don't worry it's all worth it :)

  • I have to ask ...Is it a girl???? When I was expecting my daughter I got fat everywhere- I swear even my earlobes got bigger- NO JOKE! Some swelling is normal, but if it starts to seem excessive or bother you in any way- def have your obgyn check you out, just to be sure.

    BTW- I lost all my baby fat after her and actually looked better post baby then before she was born- so Yes, with diet and a little hard work-- after baby you sure can get your body back!!!!!!!
