  • First and Foremost, keep in mind that every body is different and how each persons body reacts to pregnancy will be different. How much of a bump are you talking? It would be normal to have a bump comparable to bloating. Im assuming this is your first pregnancy? Do your best to eat healthy and stay active (if the bump makes you nervous). Before I got pregnant I was 105 lbs. before I delivered I reached 198 lbs. I ate moderately healthy (put on bed rest at 25 weeks). I never thought my body could get so big. I was really down about my weight the month of delivery for a few months following. Oh I also didn't start showing until about the 25th week. Let me tell you first hand- don't worry about your weight or bump ;-). Enjoy your pregnancy- get out as much as possible, and relax as much as possible! Time sure flies by quickly! Feel free to add me as a friend or email me with any questions ;-) Congrats

  • I popped at 10 weeks, my friend at 11, so I would say yes

  • Yeah that's when you start showing usually but for veteran mamas, you show earlier. And if you're really skinny like me then you look like a Tootsie Roll Pop that with the lollipop stuck halfway down the stick lol

  • With my 1st I couldn't get my pants buttoned at 2 months. I had an awesome pregnancy tho. I absolutely loved it. Enjoy your pregnancy.
