another question mainly for a bigger plus size girl but don't matter who answers any help will do

so being a bigger girl i already have fat on me and a stomach on me before i got pregnant. My doctor says my uterus is growing at normal rate. I don't look like i am growing at all i still look the same is it harder to see if you are getting bigger or not. i don't think i am and dont even notice a belly.

  • the larger you are, the longer it will take to look pregnant. some large women never actually look pregnant.

  • Well being a big girl myself I know what it like to be pregnant and not look it at all. I must say that as you approach the end of your 2nd trimester you will begin to show and your belly will stick out. Kepp it healthy and enjoy this time.

  • honestly, it will take longer to show. Depending on your size you may never show. All that matters is that you are taking care of yourself though:)

  • My sister is really overweight. She didn't show until her third trimester and even then it wasn't much. You also aren't suppose to gain a lot, so she was told, and she only gained 10-15 lbs :)

  • Umm Im definitely a bigger girl.. however, family and friends say that they can notice my protruding stomach and I am 15 weeks. It is harder for a plus size girl to start showing early on. Depending on how much extra weight you have on your tummy, youll start to show and be at the point where everyone and their dog will be asking.. "when are you due". It takes a while, but youll get there. Congratulations on your pregnancy!

  • I am a bigger girl and your getting there. I am 36 weeks along and look VERY VERY pregnant. Just give a it a bit longer and you will wake up and be like "BAM" I look very pregnant.

  • the bigger you are the longer it takes to show. also if you are overweight to begin with you shouldnt gain as much weight during pregnancy. and everyone shows different anyway. i was about average weight when i got pregnant and i still didnt look pregnant until about 7 months along.
