    Default Plus Sized Pregnancy

    Hey ladies, looks like our thread disappeared so here is a new one :-)

    My "B" belly is getting firmer, and I can see a difference, although strangers will still see one too many donuts... or maybe that's one too many dozen donuts

    I feel super lazy this week, like I've gotten nothing done this week, I so wish I was still in work so that I feel like I've actually accomplished something.

    I'm on the look out at the moment for some plus sized swim wear as I'm going to start doing Aqua aerobics, twice a week, but I can't believe the prices of togs over here, they were much cheaper back in NZ.



    Anyway ladies, how about we all put some stats together including due date, baby's nick name (if you have one), sex of baby (or if your not finding out)

    Hehe, I'll join in too
    Due around 20th Jan 2011. Boy.
    My bump is rather pronounced (have some pics on FB if anyone wants to see- Kellie Coleman Slade), enough that people think I'm ready to pop. I've had a few 'Oh you still have that long to go??' comments and similar. Some people just have absolutely no manners or sensitivity!

    Hey ladies, just wondering what size you have to be to join this group??? I am a size 16 normally and that usually puts me in the plus size category everywhere else (ie shops). I can put on up to 30kgs when pg though I have been told that for my height (5'5") that I am obese at 84kg. I certainly don't feel obese just more cuddly than others Hope it ok if I join

    I'm still here! I haven't put on any weight yet, which is awesome, and I just look fat - not really pregnant.

    I'm due the 15th March No nickname and yes we will be finding out

    My bump is Heffalump, because that's what I look like!

    KimB, As for size, I am normally a 16 too, about 88ish kg normally and only being a shorty (about 164cm), it doesn't look so great! Tho like you, I don't feel 'obese' (gosh that's such a horrible lable!!).
    So far I have put on about 7kg. So now about 95kg. I'm aiming to stay under 100kg, though I'm not liking my chances, with 3ish months still to go, lol! I am feeling this pg alot more than my last two, being heavier than I ever have pre pg. I was about 89kg at full term when pg with DS, and about 80kg full term with DD. So I have put on alot of weight in the last few years, from about 68-70kg to 88kg. Not really looking forward to being 8-9mths pg...especially since we have moved out to the sticks and it's apparently gets REALLY hot out here!

    Of course you can be including in our little group :-) What's your stats and I'll add you to the first post.

    Ladies how often are your purchasing new bras? in my last two pregnancies my ( . )( . )'s haven't grown... did my measurements two weeks ago and then again today and I've gone up a cup size and not really sure if I should head and and do the horrid bra shopping or not, the band size has stayed the same but the cup size has increased... should I just wear my bra's with "stretchy" cups?

    LOL, then I would freeze! And besides that you're moving again soon anyway aren't you? Back to Qld??

    Danielle, I would probably go and get 1-2 propper fitting bras. I really need to do this because my boobs are spilling out of some of my bras! Besides that I have had the same mat bras since I had DS some even since pg with him, over 2yrs ago!!

    Hi ladies. Can I join you? I started this pg at 110kg, but am currently at 96kg. When I look in the mirror I think I still just look fat, but I'm starting to stretch my shirts, so I guess there's some baby growth going on in there. I'm having a nightmare of a time finding maternity clothes though (size 20). None of them seem designed to accommodate a big bust (which seems crazy since we're talking about maternity clothes designed for breastfeeding!) unless they're completely shapeless. I can't even seem to find anyone who does custom made clothes other than suits.

    Thanks Danielle, I'm due 7th May and not sure if we are finding out. Will see how we go further down the track and whether DF can control his curiosity lol.

    My (.)(.) got huge with my 1st one I went from a perky C cup to an F 8) then down to a DD. I've stayed a DD ever since but every pg I just go up in cup size. I'm wearing maternity bras already and I bought mine from Hot Milk. I think they go up to a K cup. They also look very sexy lol.

    My tummy looks like i'm 5 months already but i'm only 8 weeks. Teach me to have so many kids lol.

    PS bubs is Froggie

    Hi ladies.... i got my swimmers and i must say they are awesome! Im so excited for our holiday now. They are very comfy and VERY supportive! So have a wee look at 'mamawear' online. Most styles they do up to 18. I will say tho beware of the board shorts, mine were very badly sized... way to small.

    Hi everyone! I fit in here too! I'm a 16 average height but massive boobs. A 12H after my last pregnancy (was a 16 e before that) and they just seem to be getting bigger!! I'm seriously considering surgery after I'm done with babies!
    I'm due April 19 and will be finding out!
    Where is a good place to get maternity swimmers? We'll be going away at Chrissy and think I'll need them.

    Hi everyone

    I've only just re-found this thread. How's everyone doing?

    Okay, so I'm Kate, baby has been nicknamed Cupcake and she's a girl due Jan 18

    On the growing (.)(.) thing I've gone from a 16DD to an 18E and still growing. I bought a couple of stretchy mat bras on sale in Myer but I'm holding out as long as possible for more because I'm slightly horrified at how much bigger sized maternity bras cost and the cheaper ones in Kmart etc just don't fit properly.

    If we're doing facebook adds I'm Kate Buckland - the picture is a headshot of me looking at the camera showing off my shorter new haircut. Got bump pics etc up on there and would love to 'friend' anyone who's keen!

    Juniper76 - I hear ya on the maternity clothes issue! What perplexes me even more that the bigger sizes (when you CAN) get them don't seem to add more room in the bust... what's with that? Half the time I end up looking like I'm swimming in my clothes but with huge barely-staying-in boobs! There is a company online that sells maternity clothes that start at a size 18 and they're pretty comfy. If you google Plus Maternity you should find them.

    Incidentally, is anyone in Melbourne? Later this month there is going to be a "Girls Night In" fashion show in Berwick featuring sizes from 16 all the way up and they're including maternity! Eeeek! If you want details look me up on fb or PM me, but it's definitely going to be a great night!

    Hi Yarrawin, cupcake is due a fwe days before my heffalump!
    I have no idea what size bra I need now. My boobs have been growing and filling out again the past couple of weeks. The had....'deflated'....in the past few months since DS weaned. But they are looking nice and perky again! My bras are still fitting mostly, except for some of the smaller ones. But thats probably only because they're sooo old! Like you Yarrawin, I am reluctant to get the larger sizes because of the price. Besides that I will need to try some on and at the moment I can't get to a store to do that!
    The fashion show sounds great, if I were close by I would have loved to go! But I'm in outback NSW!

    I am feeling a bit heavy and huge at the moment. Getting a definate waddle on me too, lol! My legs are rather achey and my feet get pretty sore when I do alot. I guess that's the joys of being pg tho isn't it!

    Hope everyone is doing well.
