  • not to be mean or anything.. i'm overweight as well [but not like BAD overweight].. it's normal according to the ob-gyn. i didn't show really until 30 weeks.. my bump when from fatness to BABY bump in less than a week, guess it's how they're positioned

  • Everyone carry's baby different. I wasn't so over weight maybe 10 pounds... and I didn't show until I was almost 7 months.

    So as long as doc. says babies okay, then you shouldn't worry much about what it looks like on the outside. : )

    Good luck and congrats on your pregnancy.

  • I am overweight. I seriously did not show to where people could tell until 4 weeks before delivery. Up until then my stomach was hard as a rock, it just didnt grow till then. I was able to wear my regular clothes the entire time :)

  • I looked like I was getting Bigger until I was about 8 months! With my second I was just as heavy and was showing by 3 months.

    I worked with a lady who was on birth control having periods and went to the doctor for fatigue and found out she was 7 months pregnant! She did NOT look it. so every one is different.

  • I'm a bit overweight and I'm 35 weeks pregnant and I don't think I look all that pregnant, definitely not compared to other women. I have what could look like a baby bump but it's low so it really doesn't look like I'm showing that much. With my last pregnancy, I looked huge but it was because my daughter was higher up and really pushed my tummy out. This time, this baby is low and it really seems to affect how pregnant I look.
