Anyone here on the chubby side?

I'm chubby especially in the belly and I was just wondering when you "fuller" ladies started show. I'm almost 20 weeks with my 2nd and I feel like my rolls are just pushing out further! When did you start to look pregnant and not just fat?

  • I unfortunately didn't start showing until about 26-28 weeks.

    Now I'm 35 weeks and some people still think I'm fat. You can't tell I'm pregnant from the back or straight on, only when seeing me from the side.

    Sad >:(

  • I'm 29 weeks (In my 7th month) and people still don't believe I am pregnant. Days before I had my son I just looked "thick" in the middle. I am tall, larger, and I have really large breasts that hide any sign of a baby belly. Sorry :( I have much envy for people that get a lovely baby bump.. I never do.

  • Well... I started at 204... Ekk I know! I'm 21 weeks now and I'm showing. I have a big hard belly, I still have fat but you can mostly tell I'm pregnant

  • Well thanks ladies! I feel better now. I hope to start showing soon. I'm very short (4"ll) and was all baby with my 1st pregnancy but I'm a little bit fuller this time around. I guess I'm just being impatient!
