I just found out that I am 7 wks along. Before I got pregnant I weight 294, since the morning sickness has taken over my body I have lost weight down to 290. I noticed yesterday that parts of my tummy is swelled some what. I thought I was reatining water because I have high blood pressure, and sometimes I retain water. My question is how will I know what is a baby mump to what part of stomach is just belly fat. Since with my belly already big, I just dont really feel pregnant, so I have took 20 hpt and all postive. November 17th I had went to my ob doctor for my routine check up, and I told him that I was having pregnancy symptoms and that I took home test and they said postive, so he did urine screen and they were postive, then his nurse drew my blood, on the november 22nd, they called me ans said that my labs were back according to the blood I am postive, and they did check my cervice and that time I was a little over 6 wks, I just dont understand why I dont feel like I am prego.
I would like some advice please.
Thanks Ladie. I am also new to the groups.

I understand where you are coming from. I am 12 weeks along and still not realy seeing any of a "bump" like you would see with skinny women because I am using to having a belly bulge there. I think with us it will take longer to truly see a baby bump there, but let me tell you, I can tell I am pregnant, because my pants are getting tight around the waistline, but still fit normal everywhere else. I say don't stress about it ... take it all one day at a time ... because even if it won't be obvious to others for a long while, you know you are pregnant .. so enjoy it

yeah I know what u mean about the cloths, I only have a few pants that are rubbing my belly and making lines, but they fit every where else. I guess cause I have seen so many skiny woman with cute bumps, and with my 3 yr old I weighed like 189 or so maybe a little more I was a size 16 and by time i was 13 wks I was starting to get a bump. Oh well I am just going to enjoy this time.
Thanks for the encouraging words

Hello! I am 28 weeks along and have seriously just started "showing" regardless of what I wear and/or how I stand. Previously I looked "suspect" -- people might look at me and wonder fi I was pregnant but now there is no doubt!

I am not a skinny girl either. I am almost 9 weeks now, and I weigh in at 191ish (after dropping about 10 pounds in the last 9 weeks). I cant tell looking at my body I am preggers. I have major morning sickness (which is my reminder) and I have had 2 u/s to see the baby.

I am guessing I wont be noticeably preggers until end of my 2nd and/or my 3rd trimester and thats ok with me.

I never thought that I looked pregnant during my entire pregnancy. Now when I see pics of me from that time, I totally did. I would say it started about 28-30 weeks.
