Do I look big for how far along I am?? Pics inside

I am 12 weeks 4 days but in this pic I am 12 weeks 3 days. My belly was almost flat when I got pregnant. I weighed 118 pre-pregnancy and I weigh 122, have I gained to much weight?

  • I dont think your that big. With my dd I had gained 20lbs by now lol. I wouldnt worry too much about it everyones body is different. One of my friends looked the same size from 3mos til now and shes due in 2 weeks. So maybe youll be like her. good luck :)

  • You've gained a what would equal out to be a little over a lb a month!! That's perfectly normal and healthy!! You are tiny to begin with, so any change in your body will be noticeable!! Quit fretting so much and just enjoy being pregnant! =) Congratulations on your pregnancy!

  • I would say you look maybe a little big for 12 weeks but I wouldn't be worried about it. Everyone's body adjusts differently to pregnancy. Good Luck!!!! :)

  • I bet I wont have a very cute baby bump with my second child. I have been trying to put olay quench on my tummy each night before I go to bed to let it soak in, dont know if it will help but its worth to try it

  • lol. :D
    This is my second child, and I was, have been, am using the Palmer's stretch mark cocoa butter thing. It really helps! ;]
    But i was told by my OB that it doesn't necessarily matter what type of lotion it is, as long as you get something that's for dry skin, thick enough to kind of.. stick with you, or extra moisturizing, like your Olay Quench, and also, it's the massaging factor that helps with stretch marks. Doing it in a circular motion, it boosts blood flow and helps reduce stretch marks, but... sometimes, genetics will win, and you get those awesome stretch marks like I do. Mine looks like a road map!... with all the back roads included. Sexy, baby.
