In brief: Yes
A lot of women feel very self-conscious about their weight and their new body in pregnancy.
And it doesn't help that everyone you see wants to comment on how big you are getting. They are trying to tell you how happy they are for you and you are trying to forget about the basketball suddenly attached to you. It can be tough. Remember that the rest of the world thinks your big belly is beautiful.

Only very few people have perfect belly. So don't get embarrassed.
