How to Embrace Your Plus Size Baby Bump

The day I found out I was pregnant was also the day I developed a love/hate relationship with Google. I was so excited to see images of plus size baby bumps. I couldn't wait to learn about what my plus size pregnancy journey would be like and what my plus size pregnant belly would look like.

Sadly, I couldn't find a lot of plus size baby belly images via Google and most of the plus size pregnancy info was rather terrifying.

What I've come to learn is the importance of embracing my plus size baby bump…even if it took forever to pop!

Even when my dreams for a perfectly round belly never came true. I've learned that a B shaped belly is just as beautiful. 

Even when my hunt for plus size maternity clothes was incredibly limited – I found items that worked

An overweight pregnant belly is just as beautiful and just worthy of acceptance as a thin woman's bump.

The truth of the matter is whether your belly is perfectly round or never pops – you are pregnant.

You are growing life within you and your body is amazing! Embrace your bump today!  

Embrace Your Plus Size Baby Bump

The act of taking maternity photos (from the comfort of your living room or with a professional photographer) is part of embracing your bump and pregnancy. If not only for yourself but also for your children who will want to see these images.

Below you'll see gorgeous plus size pregnancy images and read inspiring stories!

I am 16 weeks and started as a size 18-20 i don't yet feel pregnant, to be honest i don't know what i thought it would feel like. I have always wanted to have a bump and look like i was having a baby and these pictures are so amazing! I can't wait to start showing properly and feel like a pregnant woman. We were having issues conceiving and then when i was ill and had to get my gallbladder removed the amazing happened and i got pregnant. Can't wait for this little one to arrive and i will definately be taking pics once my bump shows it's such an amazing time to document :-) you are all gorgeous ladies and i commend the man who commented.

I cannot even describe how amazing finding this site has been for me. I've been plus sized my entire life. I am currently enjoying my third pregnancy. I sadly lost my 4 year old daughter two years ago and also had a still born son in May. I've spent these past 12 weeks of this pregnancy trying to be positive but am so scared at the same time. Finding this site this past week has put an entire new perspective for this pregnancy for me. Thank you so much all of u for posting all your beautiful stories and pictures! It has made me see how beautiful my body is again and how to embrace every single second.
