  • I'd be happy! I went so huge that everyone kept asking if I was having twins :( People don't think before they speak and it really hurts sometimes, take it as a compliment, you'll probably balloon right at the end :)

  • yea I had the tiniest bump till about 6-7 months with my first. I ended up getting so big I thought maybe it was twins!

  • With my first, I could still tuck my shirt in my pants at 6 mo. I took till like 8 mo before you could REALLY tell I was pregnant. He wasnt a small baby really. He was 7 lbs. even.

  • yaI wouold be happy too lol. If you are that tiny then you will lose the weight with no problem after baby is born. I always gain a lot of weight. First baby I gained 65 pounds so I didn't lose 20 of the pounds after she was born I ran into someone I use to work with when the baby was 6 months she was like you aren't pregnant again are you? I was like no I just haven't lost all the wight yet. I was so embarressed. With baby 2 I gained 43 pounds, but I looked so big everyone kept telling me I looked like I was going to deliver anyday now and I still had a couple months to go. This time around I am 24 weeks tomorrow and I have already gained 25 pounds and that was at my last month checkup. Everyone says I look like I am going to deliver any day now and I still have 3.5 months to go. Or they ask if I am having twins because I am so big. But I am only having one baby

  • There's all kinds of room there...you stretch out as the baby grows, your uterus grows.

  • Everyone is different. I never gain weight until after the 20 week mark. In fact, in two pregnancies, I lost weight before the 20 week mark. Everyone is different. With my first, I had the smallest bump until about 25 weeks. Before then, yes, you could see a small bump, but I didn't even need maternity clothes until 6 months. The baby was fine. With all of my boys, I started showing much sooner and got very big very quickly. In fact, I often get asked about being too big. I wouldn't put too much concern in people stating you are small or large.
