  • No. Alot of women gets thicker from pregnancy, even in the hips. Oh, and congrats!

  • I didn't "show" for my first trimester. I was three months pregnant at my wedding, and I didn't look pregnant except naked. But a week after my wedding, I exploded! By the time I got back from our one-week honeymoon, I looked due! I gained 70 lbs with my first pregnancy, most of it water weight. I didn't gain as much with my next four pregnancies.

    We all gain weight differently. I worked with a first-time mom when I was pregnant with my second, and she didn't gain any weight at all. She just wore her normal dresses unbelted! Unfortunately, her baby was born under 5 lbs at full term! And had complications. Gaining weight can be healthy!

    Watch your weight gain (Never diet while pregnant!). If it increases too much, your doctor will want to try to find out why. Rapid weight gain can signify twins, or toxemia. One is a blessing, another potentially dangerous.

    At 3-4 months, twins are usually discovered.

    Good luck

  • Normal, but probably much more obvious to you than to anyone else. Don't worry about it. I'm sure you looked beautiful!
