Okay, I never thought I'd find myself saying this in my entire life, but I WANT MY BELLY!!
I'm in my 12th week and my tummy is still flat as a board. Baby, are you in therrrrre? I've seen the little one on ultrasound and heard his heartbeat just days ago, so it's not a question of his health...I just want his "home" to be visible to me. He's been hiding long enough. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Can any of you please tell me when you started showing with your first pregnancy?
My belly expanded slowly from the very beginning. I too had a very flat, strong tummy, (I teach aerobcis) but it began expanding and rounding in the second month. I'm now 4 1/2 months and showing enough that people are less timid to ask me if I'm expecting. Before, they just didn't want to "offend" me. It was about a week ago that I felt like my belly really popped out. I agree that it depends on your bodytype. I'm 5'9, and my prepregnancy weight was 135, so i guess I showed early. Don't worry: you may also "pop out" before you know it!
with my daughter I was 107 lbs (im 5'10) and started showing at the end of my 4th month. I ended up HUGE! It just took me a little longer, I think. With this pregnancy, Ive been round since about the 3rd month. Im going into the 5th , and have definately popped, although Im nowhere near huge. Im anxious to get huge!
Thanks for the reassurance. I don't know why I want a big round belly so badly. I suppose I should enjoy wearing my regular clothes for as long as possible....but I still want a tummy, damnit! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/love1.gif">
I guess I've been dealing with a lot of discomfort and exhaustion for the last 3 months and want a visible sign to the world as to why I'm such a wreck! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Right now people just think I've lost my mind. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">
Thanks again. I'll put on my size 5 jeans today and a nice tight shirt to show off my new boobs and will smile about it.
hmmm. I just posted my recent preggo pic, and as you can see, I definately got the belly. I started out totally flat as well. suddenly, I feel like an upside-down camel. Dont worry, its coming! By the way, your title of the post reminded me of that Mike Myers character that keeps saying "get in my belly!!!!!"lol
