  • Every pregnancy is different and everyone shows at different times, I had a friend who didn't show until she was practically in labor! So I'm sure everything's fine. Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy :). Rose.

  • with my first I wasn't obviously pregnant till month five- I'm on my third and just recently people have started looking at my belly curiously. I will be 17 weeks on monday.
    fret not dear- you'll balloon out soon enough then you'll wish you hadn't...
