    here is moi, 40 weeks pregnant. I am not 100% sure of my weight here.... I'd been mostly on bedrest and lost over 40 pounds. I delivered via emergency c section about 30 hours after this picture was taken. I was in a maternity clothes 3x.... likely 250ish pounds or so. you'll round out with baby but not til the end, probably!

  • It all depends on how you carry the baby. By the time I was done with dd everyone knew I was pg because I carried her sooooo low. I was 260ish at 12 weeks and 275 when I delivered.

  • I highly recommend investing in a few novelty tshirts to boost your confidence. This link has some adorable ones, maternity cut plus sizers that go to a 5x!,121189778

  • I'm 36 weeks pregnant and though most guess correctly that I'm pregnant I can tell there is some uncertainty and they just don't comment. Unless I'm rubbing my belly then they smile. lol. Being overweight you won't show as early so 12 weeks is still very early for showing. I didn't start really "showing" till 7 months.

    Here I am at 31 weeks.

  • i was overweight when i had my son and i never got a round belly! the only time ppl could tell that i was pregnant was towards the end! i'm thinking in part it is because of my height though. my son grew kind of up and down instead of side to side. i told my husband i can't wait to be thin just so i can get pregnant again and have a perfect round baby belly. lol.

  • Glad I am NOT the only one wondering this and YES my top belly is poking out more which makes NO SENSE to me at all. I am 279 right now and before I got pregnant I was 274 - I had lost some weight earlier in the year and was actually down to 269 at one point and then it seemed like the weight started creeping back on me even tho I was still working out - then I found out I was pregnant. I hope that I show!!
