I'm 11 weeks but it doesn't look like I'm pregnant at all. This is my first child. I haven't had any morning sickness, I'm eating but not eating alot and I'm losing weight. I went to a women's center, and they did an ultrasound and told me the baby was fine. So why doesn't it feel like I'm pregnant? I'm really confused....

You are soo early in your pregnancy. You will be fine. My appetite did not pick up at all until I was nearly 7 months and I didnt show till then either. every pregnancy is different. As long as the doctors say your fine I don't think you really have anything to worry about. Wait until you are about 20 wks or so in. Thats when things hit me hard. Maybe you are a lucky one and wont get morning sickness

i didnt even know i was pregnant with my first until i was almost three months. i didnt show til i was almost seven months prego. i lost weight in the first few months i had no symptoms until my after about 14 weeks and i got morning sickness. but other than that i didnt feel anything didnt show for every i'd tell ppl i'm due in a month and half and barely have a pump just looked like i was bloated. the dr told me the baby would just be really small but everything was fine and she should be healthy. i ended up having an 8 pound baby and she was chunky and huge i have no idea where she was hiding when i was prego cuz i never showed much.

it's pretty common not to be showing that early, especially when it's your first. Remember that the baby is still very tiny at 11 weeks. And some women are just lucky enough not to experience morning sickness! My sisters didn't, which hardly seems fair because I had it big time! Everyone is different, each body reacts differently to pregnancy. Before you've been through it, you have certain preconceptions, and that all mothers suffer from morning sickness seems to be one of them! You hear so many people complain about it, it's ALWAYS the first symptom in movies/tv shows, and people just seem to figure that all pregnant women go through it. Not so. Some are luckier than others. As for losing weight though? As I said, it's not uncommon not to have gained any by this stage, losing it is something that should maybe be checked out, just in case there is an underlying reason. A lot of people do lose weight in the first trimester, but usually the ones who have bad morning sickness and can't keep food down. The ultrasound said the baby was fine though, so just keep monitoring it to make sure it stays fine, and have your doctor check if there are any reasons you may be losing weight.

With my first I didn't show until I was about 6 months. I am tall with wide hips and she had so much room she was laid across my tummy for the majority of the pregnancy. With my second child I looked pregnant at 4months, although he was a big 9 pdr when he was born so understandable lol. I am now 20 wks pregnant with baby no.3 and I still don't look pregnant, hardly a bump in sight. Each pregnancy is different so I wouldn't stress about it and if I recall with a first baby you don't feel them until 18-20 weeks. Oh and weight loss is also common. Good luck with everything!

my zumba teacher is 6 months and just is starting to show her belly. It depends on your activity, your health and all sorts of factors, if your healthy, your baby is growing that's all that matters!

I was the same way. In the end i only gained 15 lbs. i just ate healty foods, never slipped meals. Some people dont show for a while, and your still at the early stage you might not see any changes till month 5 or so.

All women are different. You won't won't really show til around 5 months,or even 6. Some women don't feel morning sickness. probably won't feel it til a little later in the pregnancy. Our maybe you won't get morning sickness. I started to feel sick at 3 months and showed at 5 months. Felt sick the entire time.

Every pregnancy is different. Not everyone experieences morning sickness and some women continue to have a cycle. If oyu don't have those symptoms consider yourself lucky. I am pregnant for the 9 time and with the 5 living children I have I lost between 25-50 lbs because of morning sickness. It was kinda good because after I had them you could see my stomach shrink down immediately back to normal size just like magic. With this baby I experienced morning sickness during implantation up to 4 weeks now nothing. I can eat almost everything I want. Occasionally some smells make me sick. Hope this helps, oh yeah and I'm only 7 weeks this baby and have already lost 10 lbs and I eat mostly all day. The dr only wants you to gain up to 25 lbs anymore then that is you not baby.

I didn't start showing until I was seven months. Everyone is different and as long as your baby is healthy then don't worry. Worry causes Stress and stress can cause problems. Your Baby will let you know he/she is there. When you start feeling those kicks (But at night it sucks lol) You wont worry anymore!

I didnt show until I was six months along w my first...at elevn weeks, its perfectly normal to not show and to lose weight, as the baby is taking in all of your extra calories and such.I never had w either of my girls a day of motning sickness or ctavings of any kind. As long as baby is healthy, I wouldnt worry about it.i alsodidnt feel my second move until about four months. Stay healthy and hydrated hun, good luck!!

Each pregnancy is different. I have a daughter and we are TTC #2. When I was pregnant I had a few inconveniences but otherwise it was a fairly easy going pregnancy. I was nauseous off and on but didn't get sick very often. I am a bigger person so I didn't really show until I was about 6 months along. I didn't feel very pregnant eaither in the beginning but once I felt that first real kick (not the kicks that feel like bubbles) I finally really felt pregnant! It will come in time so just make sure you are keeping healthy for the sake of a healthy baby :)

I didn't have any symptoms with either my son or my daughter. With my daughter I actually didn't find out I was pregnant unitl I was 18 weeks along and she was baby number 2.

Once you start feeling baby move and begin to show you'll feel pregnant

Normally when expecting your first child you will not show until about 14-16 weeks as your tummy muscles are tight. Think yourself lucky for no morning sickness or tender boobs. I was lucky with my sons. No pregnancy symptoms at all. May be your having a boy! When I was pregnant with my daughter however I had the pregnancy from hell. Throwing up every day until 26 weeks, so huge by 4 months that people thought she was due soon.

Enjoy your pregnancy!

That was the first 11wks of both kids. I really didn't look pregnant till 4-5 months with the first and maybe a few weeks earlier with the second.

You won't really feel pregnant until you feel the baby move for the first time. That's when I felt pregnant. Even though I was nauseous constantly, I truly didn't feel it til I felt him move that first time.
