  • Some babies stay toward your back and some stay closer to the front of your belly. There is nothing wrong and I think you already knew that.
    It depends on the size of the baby too.
    My sil had 2 kids and each time up to birth you couldn't tell she was pregnant.
    She was very thin too.
    Her babies weighed a little less than 6 lbs.

  • Thats normal - I didn't look pregnant until I was about 7 months along.
    My pre-pregnancy weight was 188 and I lost like 25 pounds in the beginning of my pregnancy and just four days before I had my son I weighed just 5 more pounds than my pre pregnancy weight. When I went in for my 6 week check up I weighed just 155. So the weight thing isn't bad .. it doesn't mean your baby is going to be unhealthy.

  • My first pregnancy I didn't show till about the 6th month. I'd put on maybe 10lbs.

  • I am almost 6 months now and most days I really do not even look pregnant. Whenever I go shopping for my baby people always look at me funny when I say how far along I am. As long as the baby is growing fine you have nothing to worry about. Some women are just different.
