If it's anything like mine it will stretch to accommodate the bump. Afterwards it won't shrink back, not having been toned or stretchy to begin with. I still look about five months pregnant except now it's a bit wobblier.
I'm curious on this, it's always frightened me. I lost 9 stone 4 years ago and whilst I've kept it all off (gained a stone, which I plan to lose before I get pregnant so my bmi is more than under 25) I have a bit of a tummy which is unnoticeable unless I get undressed (although it's not as bad as I thought, being young it sort of sprung back, just looks like I've had a child really).
I thought about having surgery to flatten it but then if I was to have children it would weaken the muscles and go back or then maybe if I was to wait and have it after I've had children. But my main concern is how would it look during pregnancy because I think I'd be very self concious, even dressed.
I was very, very slim before getting pregnant (size 6). I put on nearly 5 stone and never lost it - booo. Actually I don't mind that much, being slim is nowhere near as important as I once thought it was.
I know someone that started pregnancy quite plump (size 14). She stayed about that size and didn't put on any weight, she didn't even look that pregnant. And when the baby was born she was instantly a size 10.
I do wish I'd started fat and ended slim, not the other way around.
i was big when i fell. generous size 16. i thought id conceal my bump under all the weight for a while...nope i have a massive round bump and at 24wks constantly get when r you due and this face when i respond.
Before I became pregnant with DC1, I wasn't overweight but was very definitely an apple shape, lots of fat/flab around my middle. I didn't actually start to look pregnant until I was past 20 weeks - my tummy then just stretched, and for the first time in my life, I had a firm tummy!!!
Immediately after she was born, I was absolutely appalled by my horrendously 'spongy' flabby tummy; it really did look awful and I was worried it was going to be like that forever. It did go back to normal though within a few weeks, perhaps as a result of walking about 15 miles every week with the pram.
I similarly carry all my weight on my tummy, and looked borderline bumpy as a 16 before - not helped by massive knockers, would be asked if I was pregnant monthly. I showed at around four months and really, really loved my bump- smooth and firm and I felt gorgeous when not boaky. Baby now 9mths, and I am a bit bigger, I had to buy an 18 for a wedding a fortnight ago. But I care less; my body did something amazing, and having had my gallbladder out when he was 4mths so not able to do as much exercise as I'd planned (not much, couple of miles a day with the dog and an occasional kettlebell class) I'm just grateful it all still works tbh.
