pregnant looking tummy
I haven't done much exercise in the past year due to a broken ankle. I have put on a bit of weight but am not fat. I am 1.65m tall and weigh 60kg (usually weigh about 54kg).

My problem is I seem to have put on a lot of weight on my tummy. I am trying to conceive (no luck yet) but already look pregnant with my boep! Is it just my body type and lack of exercise? Am worried someone will ask me soon if I'm pregnant - how embarrasing!! do you think anything could be wrong with me?

Your tummy is probably related to the lack of exercise with lax abdominal muscles. Try some tummy toning exercises.
