15 weeks and not even showing

I was getting nervous to go to my second doctors appointment because I'm not gaining any weight and not really showing at all. When i was pregnant with my son i was quite large by this time. Maybe that means it's a girl?? Anyways babies hearbeat is strong and still there so i had nothing to worry about. Is anyone in the same position as me? Due July 3 and don't have a belly at all. I'm also decent size - size 6 pants so i'm not too large to where it's hiding in my extra winter warmth :)

I wouldn't worry about it as long as the heart beat and everything is fine. There have been cases of women who have given birth and not even realized they were pregnant. When I saw that I wondered how the heck they went 9 months without even realizing it. Some of them had neg pregnancy tests, were carrying the baby so far back that they never felt any movement and never had any pregnancy symptoms. You could just start showing later with this one, just keep in mind that every pregnancy is different.

I'm due February 14th and I've only gained 12 lbs so far with this one.. with my son I could just look at a cupcake and gain 5!! LOL
People didn't even start noticing I was pregnant until 30 weeks... one woman even accused me of FAKING... ugh!
With my 1st, I was wearing maternity by my second trimester.. and with this one I just started consistently wearing maternity about 3 weeks ago.. up until then my regular jeans fit just fine. And I'm not a big girl by any means (but not a skinny mini like some of you size 5's! LOL)
Don't worry about it.. just be happy and enjoy the pregnant life :)

I wouldn't worry about it I am pregnant with my 4th child and I didn't really start gaining weight until the end of my second trimester, I actually lost 12 pounds , I am now 36 weeks and so far total weight gain is 11 1/2 pounds but baby is healthy

When i was pregnant with my 1st I new a woman who was due the week after me. she is tall and very thin yet she had the tiniest baby bump even at the end she was only the size of me at 20 weeks! i thought because she was so thin she would show more but i guess since she was tall baby had more room inside that way..? anyways her baby was a pound more than mine at birth.

I cant say im in the same boat. I am also due july 3rd and im already showing but with my son you wouldnt of even know i was pregnant until 24 weeks. Also my son is only 10 months old so i still had some of that lovely loose skin on my belly from him. I wouldnt get too worried about not showing right now as long as the heartbeat is good. Just make sure u grab the coco butter and start using it now i didnt with my son because i didnt think i needed to since i wasnt getting bigger but then i exploded overnight it seemed and i have killer strech marks to show for it.

I'm complete opposite. I'm huge. I was asked if I was 5 months along when I was almost 3. :( I think as long as you can feel your nice lil hard bump of a baby and heartbeat is good, just be glad you aren't having to do the ole hairband on the jeans or break out maternity yet. I've heard you carry boys/girls differently. My son was LOW. My daughter was higher so I wore my pants longer.
