I am plus size and pregnant (i have known for a while been on another board but just found this one as it suits my needs too!)

for me it's been tough being plus size ... my brothers wife is also pregnant and she is skinnny so she has a nice round baby bump... i have fat. =/ everyone goes AWEE LOOK AT YOU..(to her) and i get left out as people tend to forget..

other than that it's hard to find a friendly plus size midwife/ doctor... they always seem to make appointments about my weight =/

i am more than happy to be pregnant with an amazing man by my side! just trying to get over those lumps in the road

HUGS! I am similar in that I look chubbier than normal but its my small baby bump. I smile with the knowledge that "inspite" of my weight, I have a beautiful baby growing inside me and its the reason I am putting on weight (well, I am not putting on weight yet with my m/s being on high still but you know what i mean)!

When are you due?

Congrats and welcome! When I was pregnant with Dd I never felt like I looked pregnant. When I looked back on pictures, boy did I ever! I totally understand how you feel though. Luckily my OB never made my weight an issue. The OB who was on call the night that I was admitted to have my daughter did walk into my room, look at me and say "Induction for GD." I corrected him, as I did not have GD and then called him out on him assuming it was GD based on the fact that I was plus sized. That was the one and only incident that I had with both of my pregnancies.

I am due April 19th! I am 14 weeks and 5 days pregnant today (cant wait to know the sex!)

for me it's hard because like i said my brothers wife is tiny and has a big baby bump and shes only a few weeks ahead of me!

my midwifes (i have to see different ones) seem to only concentrate on that ONE issue sucks but i am seeing a new one that a friend of mine recommended me so HOPEFULLY she is nicer and i can finally relax and be happy about all aspects! if not i will be changing Doctors

Welcome!!! Sorry I was slow to respond to this I have been away from this board. So glad to have you!

I know how you feel about not looking pregnant, I was the same way. When I was pregnant I always felt like I just looked really fat and that people would think I was fat and not pregnant.

Either way, I wish you all the best in your pregnancy and would love to have you around! Hopefully the one your friend recommended is great!
