Anyone overweight here.. and not getting a 'nice' bump?

Hey ladies!

Okay just needed to whine again about this..
I really want a cute bump.. but still just have two rolls of fat for my belly I love to look at other ladies bumps.. but they are starting to make me really jealous that I don't have that.
Anyone going though the same thing?

Re: Anyone overweight here.. and not getting a 'nice' bump?

although i am not overweight, like you i have no bump (i have grown a bit in the tummy, looks like ive just gained weight or am bloated! NOT a prego bump!) Is it your first (it is for me). My doctor said i'll probably pop a small "pouch" around 23 weeks or so! I know how you feel though, i want a baby bump so much! No one could tell i am pregnant unless i told them...then they think 'you must be in the early weeks!" ho hum not so!

I do try and see it as a good thing though...i can still fit into lots of my pre-pregnancy clothes, i still sleep comfortably at night etc...

Yeah I think a bit different :P
I do not fit in my pre pregnancy jeans anymore.. I mean don't get me wrong.. I do have some sort of bump.. I now a baby is in there.. but it just makes me look fatter because I have 2 rolls.. not a nice round bump like all the other ladies. And i am not comfortable at all at night..the top of my tummy gets soooo bloated and is totally uncomfortable..But again that was only my first roll
Hope that makes sense.

Re: Anyone overweight here.. and not getting a 'nice' bump?

I hear you on the top tummy bloat...
I am somewhat overweight and when I eat I feel so full and bloated because all my organs are pushed up against my stomach. It is not comfy at all.

I have a bump but it is mostly at the top...

Re: Anyone overweight here.. and not getting a 'nice' bump?

I am overweight, or should I say extra fluffy The babies have taken 2lbs from me in the last 4 weeks I started out this pregnancy at close to 235 and now I am down to 222. I too am bummed that I don't have that look like I swallowed a basketball! I will have to upload a pic that my dh took of me last week. I am starting to round out, but I still have a roll of fat at the top so I look oblong.

Well, I'm not in the overweight category, but my body seems to gather the blubber in the middle mainly. So I know what you mean about not getting a "pretty" bump. If I'm wearing maternity shorts/pants the elastic rolls down to make it look like an emphasized beer belly!! Seriously, nobody at the gym that I've known for awhile now would even guess I'm preggo. They tell me I just look like I've had too many donuts! Oh well.. I guess we all get our bellies differently!

Re: Anyone overweight here.. and not getting a 'nice' bump?

i am with you!!! I am still overweight from last pregnancy, this is the first pregnancy that i started overweight!! Other ones I was around 140, this one around 212!!! I am still 212 so I haven't gained anything. I have the Flabbiest stomach, even smaller I have had it and right now i have a baby bump but it is just kind of pushing out the fat further, I think eventually it will all stretch out and look better but I HATE the fact that I look extra fat, not pregnant!

Well, keep in mind I'm 5"2 and wear a 14.. but I don't have a pretty bump. In fact, it may never be seen without clothes over it. I'm also high-waisted.. so I get a double-bump ish where my old waistline was.. and I tend to carry high also.. but for me I know it's also partially organs.. not all baby. Hard top.. and my tummy is actually smaller now than before I was pregnant. Go figure.
