I feel TOO big. I'll be 25 weeks thursday and I just feel huge, like bigger than I should be. Baby is measuring fine, actually a little less than what is the "norm" but I just feel like I'm carrying a beachball. Does anyone else feel this way? It's really hitting my self-esteem.

You look just right! I'm 25 weeks 4 days and I'm pretty much the same size, maybe even a little bigger because I'm on #3, lol...I've already been "stretched out." Not to mention that I no longer have an innie bellybutton. :-P

thanks guy. and baby2, I just looked at your pics, I guess I just look pregnant lol but all the women in my family are telling me that my belly is too big, and then they feel it, thinking it's all fat, and it's hard.

My little sister called me fat when I was preggo, I just ignored her cuz it was the time in my life I was allowed to be big & not care! I just think differently about her now, I don't like ppl who try to bring others down.

yeah! this is definitely not the time to tell someone they look fat, because pregnant women always take it to heart. Just makes me want to eat more lol

I was just thinking the same and I just turned 20 weeks today. I never lost all the weight from my last pregnancy so this is the most I've ever weighed. Only gained 5 lbs so far but feel like a whale :(

haha really? I'm going to look at your pics! I guess I was always under the impression that if it was your first baby, you wouldn't show until the end.

I was massive with my first, I gained over 100 pounds and even at 30 weeks my belly hung out of XL maternity shirts lol. I was a 00 before I got pregnant and was fitting in size 3s by the time my second was 6 months old. Your body will never be quite the same but it will still be beautiful :)

My doc always tells me not to listen to others and how. It they think I should be because each woman is different, carry different, ect. You look great pregnant mama.
