Does it seem like pretty much everyone in your ddc is little/skinny, it sure does in mine with the exception of me and two other girls, it's rather depressing, not sure i will share belly bump pics there, I will rather out of place.

LOL, yes. Well, I haven't joined one this time around, but when I was pregnant last time most all of them except for about 5 were thin. I did not share belly pics.

It did until I started reading this forum, but now I know there are several other August DD ladies here.

I found that, i believe there is one or two other plus size mummies to be in my DDC, i wasn't going to post my bump pics there but i figured i had nothing to be ashamed of, i can totally understand why you feel uncomfortable about it though i know i do even tho i post them!

I'm December DDC, too. I just wandered onto the forums last night, totally unplanned (NOT unwanted) pregnancy, still in a bit of shock. I've been overweight pretty much my whole life so I have NEVER taken a belly pic I doubt I will start with this one, but who knows. Anywho, just saying hi, from another plus size in your DDC

Oh, cool, I feel so huge most of the time in there, I was looking at some of the belly pics last night, and most of the girls are so tiny, my pregnancy is kind of a surprise also, I was seeing a doctor and taking a rx to lose weight before my RE appointment, but i think that losing weight helped me get my bfp without meds, Yay!!!

LOL oh yes! I think there is maybe one other girl in my DDC that has publicly said she is "larger" Not only are the majority of them tiny, the majority of them are also WAY young...which makes me feel not only like the token fatty, but the old lady as well. Goodtimes. LOL. They are a heck of a nice bunch of gals though...so I cant complain.

Honestly, I have been afraid to even participate in my DDC because I feel like because I am overweight and kind of high risk I don't have anything in common with them (but I know that is my imagination). At my office, there is another girl pregnant right now - same due date as me, same friggin DOCTOR as me!! She is TINY - and I am developing such a complex about it!!!

But you know, I have never looked at an overweight pregnant woman and thought anything other than how beautiful she was...I don't know why I can't look at myself that way!

Am I reading your ticker right that you're due in August? There are probably more of us plus size folks over there than you realize. Flip through the plus size roll call thread, and you should recognize several of the names.

a boy :-) I didn't really have a preference, but I think I always pictured myself having a girl? Like, I would reproduce my own kind? :-) still, I came to the realization pretty early on that almost all of my issues are..uh, female in nature?? so I can't possibly pass that down to my son, so its really a great thing!!


I do need to look around the roll call - even reading through this thread I didn't realize how many August folks there were :-) Its amazing what you convince yourself when you are in that frame of mind...

I also feel like the old, fat lady in my DDC. I don't think I will share belly pics there unless I get a huge burst of confidence from somewhere.
