Thank you so much for posting these beautiful pics of your pregnancy! I am a 28y/o 4'9 African american female who has looked all over the internet to find plus size pictures of pregnant photos. I am 28 weeks and I have always want to know what I would look like this far along. I have a extra pouch(thats what I call it!) and I wanted to see if it would go away during the pregnancy, and so far it has not but I still have 3 months to go. I am proud of these beautiful pregnant divas! I give you thumbs up for having your site also!

Hello, I just wanted to say thank you so very much for putting this blog up! I am 18 married size 18 (pre-pregnancy) and 7 weeks along. I haven’t been able to find any plus size pregnancy photos at all. I was about to give up all hope and be sad and self-conscious and then Bam! There it was my site in shining armor! Thank you so much for taking the time to make this site. Oh and if anyone can could you tell me when we start showing?

I am 5"9 and just coming up to 5 months pregnant. I am obese and do not show at all! to the fact that sometimes if it wasnt for the nausea, i would question myself if i was pregnant. It does cause me to worry as i would prefer to look massive than not to show at all.
I just wanted to say thank you to these beautiful pictures and the encouragement that you have given to all of us big n beautiful mammas :)

First of all, loved the cheeky energy vibe in your belly pics. You look so cute & are really enjoying yourself.:-) the last pic is a classic " madonna" pose, really lovely. Also nice to have real photos that aren't all photo shopped. It is important that women share what we "really" look like & not criticise ourselves , NOBODY looks like standard magazine photos of a very narrow population profile. As to the " pouch" issue...i got mine following c-section surgery. It does not go away & is a very common issue for all body types...go to a site cesareanscar.com for lots of real women's photos & stories all shapes & sizes. Congrats on this site it is a real confidence booster.

I am 25 years old and I have struggled my whole life with weight. Doctors always told me I could not conceive because of it. I looked at this page and cried because you gave me hope. I am struggling to get pregnant because I do not ovulate, but I am starting my second round of Clomid tomorrow and I think your pictures boosted my spirits and I pray I am able to have that wonderful feeling of life growing inside too. Thank you for putting yourself out there and showing people size really does not matter. :-)

I love these photos as I am overweight and didn't seem to fit the "normal" images of a pregnant woman. Thank you :)

Hello, I'm 31 10 wks. pregnant, Im a size 22-24. This is my first baby, and I want to say Thank You for having the courage to show off your baby bump. I'm a photographer and I would love to have the experience to do Plus size maternity session. I hope that my belly rounds out and can get the chance to take photos of my own, once I do I will be proud like you to show off my baby body. Thank you again so very much.
