Mamas that got pregnant while 30+ pounds overweight...

Okay so I'm 9 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby...I'm also about 30 lbs overweight.  I'm so anxious to get my baby belly, but I'm worried that with the extra weight it will take forever.

So if you got pregnant while being at least 30lbs overweight, when did you finally start showing?

I am well over 30 pounds overweight and I started showing (where you could really tell it was a baby belly) around 12 or 13 weeks.

My first pregnancy about 14 weeks, My second, no one asked me until the day before I delivered. And the odd thing is I had lost weight with my second.

When I was pregnant with my son I was average weight for my height but didn't show till I was almost five months along.

I was way more than 30 pounds overweight with my last two. 295 pounds at 5 ft 8. I showed very fast though and looked pregnant at like three months. My first I was 98 pounds and it took forever to begin showing.

I think I was about five months before you could tell it was a "baby belly". 

"Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud. It is not rude. It is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It always trusts, always protects, always hopes, always perserveres." 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Yah know...I honestly don't know if I was over weight before I got preggo because that kinda thing just doesn't bother me. I know I was 165 before I TTC THIS baby and before my 3rd baby was conceived I was 125 lbs so yah I have put on a bit of weight since then..I never lost my baby weight from my 3rd dd..Maybe I should have but I really don't care, I have no health prob, and I will loose it when I want to.  They say ppl that weigh as much as I do and are as tall as I am are OBEASE... all I can do is laugh at that because I seriously think its ridiculous...

But anyway to answer your ? I really didn't start SHOWING noticeable to others until I was around 15 weeks or so! I had a bit of a belly on me so it was kinda hard to tell but NOW you can tell its a BABY belly and not just extra baggage lol..

I started showing at like 3-4 months..  (granted I had lost about 25 pounds by this point. I was extremely sick the first 4 months. But yeah, I was about 50 pounds over weight when I found out I was pregnant. You'll show dont worry.

This was 6 months...

With my first I was heavier to start but I started showing about 6 1/2 months.  With this baby I weighed less to begin with but started to show around 14 weeks.  So far I have only gained 3 pounds.
