  • You are 10 weeks farther along than I am, so I can't really say I know where you are coming from, but I have NO tummy at all. I look at some of the baby bump pictures posted in my groups and I get jealous. I took a look at your pictures and I think your tummy is neither too small nor too big. Are you tall? In your photos it looks like you may have a long torso which I have always thought made women have a smaller bump, more room for baby inside, so less showing on the outside. I am sure your little girl is just perfect and probably before long you will miss feeling small. Congrats!!!

  • Last time I went.. which was about 20 weeks... I gained only a pound... however I am big in my stomach. I do my glucose test in about a week and a half and will see what else I have gained... but I wouldn't worry.

  • as long as you are not flucuating(sp?) down in weight much you are okay. E.ven if you are staying about the same weight... it is okay.. it will come.

  • My sister never had to wear maternity clothes. And she's not even so much as chubby. Some people just don't get as big as others. You look like you're about the same as me. Somewhere in the middle. We're the lucky ones, we still get to look pregnant, but we don't have the pounds and pounds of weight to lose afterwards, and not nearly as many stretch marks as some women, either.

  • you are fine. every woman develops differently. I am 22 weeks and am not showing at all.... i have gained about 3 or 4 lbs.
    With my second son I didnt gain ANY weight at all til I was almost 7months.... but I was showing by 6. so it all depends on you but I wouldnt worry if I was you!
