Dear Mom: I'm not showing early, I'm overweight

My little sister had twins a year ago. I am pregnant for the second time, and my mother keeps remarking at how large my abdomen already is at only week 7. When I see the doc I'll let her know there's twins in the family, because I know it's a possibility, but I'm slightly overweight and rather offended that my slightly overweight abdomen has magically changed into an early baby bump. I know I should probably go with the flow, but that's easier said than done.

 I am had the same issue except with my first my uterus was tilted so far back I wasn't actually showing much baby till 32 wks. I was more rounded than before but I didn't really pop until then. I knew I wasn't getting any bigger yet but oh boy did family try to act like I was. I just wanted to tell people to leave it alone, I wasn't showing I was just over weight. This is my second pregnancy and I can tell my pants are a little tighter already and I am 14 wks and I can see my tummy rounding out much faster. My doc warned me I would not get so lucky as to avoid maternity clothes this time.

My mother constantly remarks at how small I am which to her is a good thing. She says that itll be much easier to hide the fact that I'm pregnant. I'm sorry you're going through this though.

LOL at your wording. Sorry about the negativity of that experience. You reminded me that when I do show, I definitely look pregnant and not fat.pregnant belly
