I think every woman "shows" differently! You Look very small(skiny) naturally & if this is your first(I'm guessing it is) you arent going to show as quickly. But you look good & if your Dr isn't concerned I wouldnt be either. I was 92 lbs when i got pregnant with my son & i didnt "pop" until 5 months. this time im 13 weeks & already showing!!!! Its crazy, but i would just say your muscles are holding everything in very well & i would be proud if i where you!!!! lol

Don't worry honey a lot of women don't blow up til' the end lol, I showed before I knew I was pregnant with my first and with this one I am just now starting to show at 22 weeks. I know how you feel though, feeling so pregnant already and wondering if you look pregnant or like you have a little beer gut lol... soon enough you will wonder how you ever got so big :-)

Some women just don't show. I have a pretty long torso (I'm 5'8") and during my pregnancies the baby has sat towards my back, so I go the whole time and no one can really even tell i am pregnant. It sucks not being able to look pregnant, but as soon as I had my child I looked thinner than before I was pregnant!

With my first it took me awhile to show because I was sick in the beginning and had lost almost 10lbs. Two of my other friends were pregnant at the same time and always had to comment on how small I was compared to them which drove me nuts. By the end of the pregnancy my stomach was a really good size, and my baby ended up being bigger then either of theirs and they were shocked. Don't worry, you will get there, as long as you and baby are doing well thats the main thing :)

I understand where you are coming from.I popped very late but now that I am showing it still seems I am no where as big as other mommy's as far as I am. I am 29.3 weeks and look maybe how most do at like 20-24 weeks. I guess it just depends on the person and the pregnancy. Good luck and congrats!

I'm 26 weeks pregnant with my first and we started noticing changes around 9 weeks. I was about 13-15 weeks before others started asking if I was pregnant. However, I was a really tiny girl before pregnancy(weighed 100 lbs and wore size 1 jeans) as well as showing early runs in my family. I have a fried that is due a week before me that was the same size as me before pregnancy and she is just starting to show. Everyone and every pregnancy is different. Enjoy the time you have still small and able to fit into cute clothes! Before you know it when you go out places people will be stopping you to ask how far along and to touch the belly ;)
Maddison Elizabeth Marie Bearce is 26 weeks old in Mommy's tummy and is due MAy 1st, 2010

When I had my first, I was pregnant along with many people I knew. I got to maybe half the size of most of them by the time I had my son. My mom had 5 and barely showed with most. It is normal for some people. Then you sometimes hear about people who don't even know they are pregnant and have completely healthy babies.
I am on my second and showing much more, much sooner.

haha Im 25 weeks and just only ticked over to being noticably pregnant. I went for a blood test and the lady asked my partner if i was really pregnant coz she read my paperwork. It is my 1st baby though. All my friends who have had babies though have all been pretty big and one friend was showing at 9 weeks with her 1st baby. Guess everyone is different...still no stretch marks on my tummy too Bonus!!

I was gutted on my first when 8 months pregnant my husband and i were buying baby stuff and the shop assistant asked if it was for a relative. On my second and third I showed a lot though now im on baby no 4 and my hubby said this week i look pregnant already and im only 10 weeks dont know whether to be pleased or cry.

This is my first pregnancy and im 16weeks and 5days along and im barly showing. I believe its normal as long as your midwife says thats everything is fine and its healthy then its nothing to worry about. You will eventually get your bump and congratulations x

I'm now 35 weeks, and people ask me if i'm pregnant! Lots of people tell me that i look small for almost 9 months. I just ignore it because i know that i am bigger this time than with my last pregnancy. Everybody is different. How far along are you?
Alex - posted on 01/20/2010
yeah same here. my cousins wife is due the month after me and she shows way more then i do... I dont get it either.
Natalie - posted on 01/20/2010
Just like the other ladies said, it all depend on your body and how many pregnancies you've had. With my 1st i didn't show until around 18-20 weeks and i really didn't get big. At full term i looked like 6 or 7 months.
With my 2nd i showed around 14 weeks i think and got as big as with my first.
Now i'm having my third and as soon as my test showed that BFP i was bloating already and now at 12 1/2 weeks i already have a little baby bump... can't wait to see how big i'll get this time around.
You know, some women hardly show at all! That surely comes in handy at the end of the pregnancy when most women are huge and that big belly really bothers them

Every women and every pregnancy is different! I'm only 24 weeks and I'm measuring at 28-29 weeks (needless to say I look like a whale). Someone I know whos due date is a day after mine, isn't nearly as big as I am. As long as your baby's healthy and growing everything will be fine :) You will pop, so don't worry!

haha just like everyone else is saying... no worries... I was 7 almost 8 months before I started showing... and if you look at my pic over there
Stacy - posted on 01/19/2010
I didn't start really showing until about 5-6 months and now that I'm almost 39 weeks all I hear is how big I am. It seemed like I popped overnight and haven't stopped. trust me, the baby bump will come soon enough.

I'm at 13 weeks and nothing has changed.... they say that on the first pregnancy the uterus doesn't start to come up out of the pelvic cavity until later. But baby is fine.
Katherine - posted on 01/19/2010
I didn't show at all with my first even just before i had him, my second i showed later in the pregnancy and this one I have been showing since I was 14weeks. I think every pregnancy is different.
Chelle - posted on 01/19/2010
might just be you have good muscle tone in your stomach. baby has to streach your belly but if your toned it might just be holding baby in there more snugg. the bump will come so if i was you id enjoy havin a flat tummy while it lasts. and maghan is right 1st pregnancy will take longer to start showing because nothings been streached before
Jennifer - posted on 01/19/2010
i have had 3. it is completely normal to be up to 6 months along before other people can tell. my first i didnt show at all till about 24 weeks. my second i got fluffy in the tummy but it wasnt noticebaly preggo till about 4-5 months. this baby i got fluffy right away, but still not "rounded" till close to 4 months. it also depends on size. small women tend to show faster, fluffy girls ( like myself ) show later on the norm.
But regardless of size some women barely show at all the whole time!
Meghan - posted on 01/19/2010
have you had children before? if this is your first pregnancy you wont show for a while, but if you are in your second or subsequent pregnancys you will show alot sooner as your body has "been there done that" so to speak and the uterus is bigger than a first time pregnancy :) dont worry, you will show eventually.
good luck :)
