I'm 32, almost 33 weeks but my bump is still super small. I look like I just ate a big meal not like I have 8 weeks to go. I got my haircut a couple days ago and talking to the stylist the subject of kids came up. She asked me if I had any and I said not yet, I will in about 8 weeks. She was so shocked she asked me to stand up and went on to comment on how great I looked. When she was 32 weeks she looked like a house.
I know it's a silly thing to be annoyed over and I am happy that I've only gained 21lbs and it'll be easy for me to get my body back especially since I'm going to be my sisters maid of honor in October (about 3 months after baby). But it's a little embarrassing to shop for nursing bras and things because people assume I'm buying for someone else. It just makes me feel fat. Even my family is surprised at how small I still am. I eat ALL the time. I'm always hungry! And I definitely indulge in the sweets. Not even my brother can tell that I'm pregnant. -.- It's not like was a 00 before I got pregnant, I've always been pretty average sized and athletic but even my tiny friends got HUGE. I don't want to look like I swallowed a cow but it would be nice if it was a little more obvious.
It's not something I'm concerned about, everything is normal and the kid is growing and it's all great but very compact. Maybe it's because I have a long torso so the kid has plenty of room or maybe it's just genetics, I don't know, either way it's annoying how surprised people are when they find out.
