A lot of people are telling me i'm too big to be this early, 23w5d. This picture was taken while we were at the movies sat night. I am already plus size and i'm having two back to back. Am I too big? :cry:

I don't know if there is a too big. Your belly does make it look like you're way further along than you are though.

You do look further along, but don't take it personally. Shit happens

I keep getting that god awful question. "Sure there is just one in there?" :evil: EVERYONE keeps telling me how huge I am this time around. DH took this picture, I was caught off guard, I must admit even I said "do I really look that pregnant?"

Being plus size is already a factor. Also having two babies back to back , .I don't think you gave your body enough time to re-adjust itself.. so with that I don't think as a whole your too big. But in the Tummy Yes.

Everyone shows differently during pregnancy. As long as you aren't eating ridiculously unhealthy and a ton of food everyday, there is no right or wrong. You are growing a baby!



Try to ignore rude comments like that. This is my third baby and I've been asked 9657 times if it's twins between each pregnancy. I'm just a smart ass and say no, it's triplets acutally!!

Eh, ignore them. My first 2 were back to back. I didn't show until about 7 months, but when I did, omg. It looked like there was a football team in there. Just ignore people, it's not going to be there forever.

I've only gained five pounds. I didn't even wanna gain that much. Five pounds was my total weight gain with DD and i'm just over half done and have gained that with DS. I've been watching my diet because of the fact that I am already plus size. Being plus size, I think, makes it harder that people say those things, and I know they don't mean it to be mean, but it's hard getting fatter and not being able to do anything about it, I guess.

I started this pregnancy overweight. I'm 178 right now. I lost 5 lbs, and I'm 178 again so I basically haven't gained any, but I look at least 25-30 weeks. I know exactly how you feel. It's hard to lose the weight. I workout and eat pretty well. I don't know why people feel it's acceptable to comment on your size while pregnant. I think if I get comments this pregnancy anymore I'll comment about their weight gain/size in return. :)

I agree, I would NEVER in my life say those things to a woman who was pregnant, whether she was plus size or not. I've started getting embarrassed when people ask when i'm due/ how far along I am because I know the questions and shocked looks are soon to follow.

I am sorry people make your feel that way. I think you look cute. If someone said stuff like that to me I would probably cry... I don't think that people realize that a lot of women are self conscious about the size of their baby bumps. I have not told anyone that I am pregnant so people just think that I have gained weight...some are even rude enough to comment on my "weight gain" even though I am only three pounds heavier than I was three months ago. People just need to learn to keep their opinions to their self.

Im 29 weeks pregnant and my son is 10 months old. I bet if i wasnt super sick the first trimester i would probably be "too big" as well. don't worry
