    i was a size 12 when i was preg with the oldest ( about 16 yrs ago) and i didnt show still i was 20 weeks im a size 16-18 now and i already look 7 months preg lol id say try to relax the main things are being healthy and feeling the baby when it kicks.and some women diet during preg if they are over weight its not going to hurt the baby to restrict cals if u are eating way to many or changing to healthier eating.

    I am a size 22/24 and have nearly 39 weeks pregnant. I must admit, I think i just looked fat for most of my pregnancy when I did start to show, but it is obvious now that I am pregnant. On the plus side, I haven't put a pound in weight on and I have got no further stretch marks, so so far so good!!

    I did see the anethetist because I have restricted jaw opening, but also my weight. They like to check your back and see where you carry the weight. I was fine for an epidural, they say it may take slightly longer to insert, but should be fine.

    Good luck with the pregnancy and don't worry about it.

    xx

    I'm 5ft 9 and size 18, started looking 'thicker' around the middle from week 13/14, and only got my bump at about week 20. It's grown quite a bit in the past month though!! Good news is weight gain is only 11lbs so far and feels all bump as everything else fits. Also no stretch marks - YET!!!!

    I'm large too... Size 18/20 in normal life... Trust me- your baby will definitely start to push themselves out, and your bump will show much more than a big wobbly tummy! Xxx

    Hi im a big girl and dont worry one day you will wake up and boom...bump, i suggest a bump band (matalan do 2 for£8) it lifts and supports your bump and makes you look more pregnant and not fat, it also helped calm down my sickness xx

    im a size 22 usually and im happy to report that i do look preg now lol. just a bit of a bump showing and tum is hard and full. on the plus side i havent put on much at all and have got thinner in other places and can still wear all my normal clothes. already had stretch marks so they can get worse if they like and i wont care lol.

    yeah epic morning sickness combined with old eating disorder habits i think. i try to eat properly but usually im lucky if i manage 2 meals a day.

    lets take today for example
    8 mini doghnuts
    coffee
    a bag of wotsits
    half a pack of rolos
    a twix
    a sandwich and small piece of cake
    a ready meal

    today i had my gtt and was up at 8am, then went to visit my OH's nan and auntie and went shopping in ikea for a cot so didnt get home til 11pm. all in all i ate what i consider a fair amount of food today lol
