hi everyone ,
i feel a bit silly because really I should just be over the moon that I'm expecting .
however I'm currently 16+3 and I'm feeling really down with how my belly looks ATM. I was never th and so I've always had a bit of a belly about a size 14 but it's never really bothered me . However since I've been getting bigger I've noticed my bump . The top is really nice and rounded but I've developed what I call a saggy bottom belly. I've let it slide as I keep telling myself it will stretch out when I get bigger but it's really getting me down like what happens if it doesnt . Also I know that people are noticing as my partner pointed it out yesterday and that really got me down . Why can't I have a nice round bump like so many others . Does anyone else understand where I'm coming from and offer me some advice or support and the partner doesn't really understand how I feel . Many thanks x

That was really cruel of your partner!!
How about trying a Bump band or something to support your belly/bump, might help give you shape. Otherwise buy a new wardrobe full of lovely new clothes in flattering styles (take you partners credit card to teach him a lesson lol) take a girlfriend with you rather than your partner.
I've always been overweight, when I get down I think of the good things like I don't like my overweight tummy but I love my big boobs, and I make the most of them.

Everyone carries different just think your belly is getting ready to make room for your growing little one, in a few weeks you won't even notice the bottom saggy bit. I had it at around week 15 also (and it didn't look like I was pregnant just looked like I had a bit too much mc donalds lol. But at week 24 I had a round belly :)
All the best :) xxx

i hope what I said didn't sound offensive, I just mean to make you feel better. Sometimes the way we dress and new clothes help.

I didn't take offence don't worry , I feel like a bit of a deer in the headlights ATM as I've never been pregnant before so don't really know what to expect and it's nice just talking to other people who would know what it feels like :)

I can't claim to have experienced the baby bump yet, I am trying for my first... However... I do know what it's like to have complete meltdowns about my shape (small frame but big bust, smaller waist, bigger hips Tum, butt and thighs & knees)
