Hello ladies, im 5'9 and around 290 pounds will I ever show? This is my first pregnancy. Please no bashing. Has anyone had a healthy obese pregnancy before? Looking for some encouragement.

I'm 5'8'' and was 235 at the start and and am now 239 so I'm obese. You can have a very healthy pregnancy. We have a higher chance of things going wrongnof having a difficult pregnancy.

That being said for my first I started at 190 and got to 240. So I was smaller but still obese. Baby and me were good I did get diagnosed with eclampsia(not pre..I was passed that) so I was induced at 8mths. No incubation for baby.

The weight they have for us are statistics.. you can still be "overweight" and have a very healthy pregnancy
