  • Some people gain only a few pounds with pregnancy and others gain 100 pounds! I wouldn't worry about it. As long as your baby is measuring well then who cares what you look like on the outside. Be happy that you won't end up with as many stretch marks!

  • ugh what a bitch.. My one of my girlfriends is pregnant and she is a tiny little thing and her dr. told her the same thing and I swore she was huge... just because the dr. says something doesn't mean they are telling the truth or even paying attention... my dr. is freaking nuts and like says something different every time she see's me... your baby is growing fine don't worry..

  • Take it as a compliment!!! At least she's not saying,"God woman you're as big as a house!! Try eating for two not twenty!" She'd tell you if your baby wasn't growing well :D Besides, 32cm is only 12 inches! Trust me, you're 100% fine, and she's probably just marveling at how great you look!

  • OH she is trying to make you feel better! I gained eight pounds in one week with my first and got yelled at only to have them realize five minutes later that I had gotten swollen. They put me on bed rest and the doc made the nurse who started lecturing me apologize.
    With my second up until 6 months people swore I was making it up and then BAM! I went from wearing regular clothes to looking like I was about to give birth.
    She wants to you to feel cute which is nice.

  • I never got a big round stomach when I was pregnant with any of my kids (four of them). Don't know why, I went slightly wider but not much. Some people just carry differently, if they did the measurements an everything is fine, I wouldn't worry. The doctor will say that because most women do get the rounder stomach, ask her more questions if you are worried. I could wear a baggy sweatshirt at 9 mo and noone could tell I was pregnant

  • I hated it when people said I didn't look pregnant, too! I am a big girl to begin with, so I REALLY wanted people to know that I was pregnant, not just fat! I know I wanted my belly to be an obviously pregnant one as soon as the test was positive! =)

  • i agree with music....I want to look pregnant! LOL. and I wasn't the skinniest person before, but I did lose 60 lbs on weight watchers before, so maybe they're used to seeing me "bigger" *sigh* I'm sure your baby's fine..we all look diff. prego! As far as the doctor goes, i'm sure he just said it without thinking, they're soo busy they dont take the time to know how each person feels about what they may say. sorry, i'm frustrated with docs right now--I waited for 1 hour for my last appointment then saw the dr. for 5 mins! good luck, and trust me--all is well!
