I am expecting my 4th child and expected to develop a 'baby belly' months ago but so far my bump is tiny and i can still sleep on my stomach!!

My pregnacy is progressing normally and there is definitely a healthy boy in there who kicks all night long yet I'm starting to think this might be a no show bump preganacy,you read about it but I'd never thought it'd happen to me,it's strange!

Is there any other Mums who have gone thru a pregnancy without looking it??? curious~!

Thanks for the advice erin,have harrassed my midwife Sharon over it but everything is normal,I showed with all my othere babies but this little boy is different!
Like your Mum I'm still wearing my normal clothes that look better now than they did before!!
With my 2nd pregnancy,my daughter i was in my jeans still at 6 mths lol.!!!
I do get heartburn bad and that squashed feeling like you Barb,but I put it down to my height as I'm quite short! maybe he's snuggled in my back lol

i showed at 10wks with my first, 8 wks with my second, and 12 wks with my third, but my mother never showed at all, through 3 pregnancies. she told me she only wore maternity clothes with me (the youngest) and only because she wanted to, not because she had to. she also told my she was always about 10lbs lighter after delivery then she was when she became pregnant. my mother has a thyroid condition which really messes with your hormones even more then pregnancy. i dont know if that could have anything to do with it but you might ask your dr. to test your thiroid, its a simple blood test.

Yeah, I didn't show till 5-6 months. The baby was squishing my lungs & stomach though. I couldn't breathe well unless I slept half sitting up. And I had indigestion bad.
I went to the hospital at 38- 39 wks because I thought I was in labor, the nurses didn't believe I was full term.

I was very tiny with my first little girl at 28 weeks i didnt loook pregnant at all. when i had my baby shower people thought i had made it all up! lol! but after about 32 weeks, I grew quite a bit really fast, but I still remained very tiny. Even with my third I didn't show until almost 6 or 7 months!
