  • I didn't show until I was 6 months. And even then, I could have hid it with a shirt.

  • I'm 13 weeks and not showing as much as I think I should be this is my 2nd I was already pretty big with my 1st at this point. The dr checks how much your uterus has grown not your tummy. So don't worry you will pop soon I'm sure.

  • well is it your friends first pregnancy? My first I didnt look preggers until I was 6 months, now I am feaken huge and I am 5 months! Also your uterus may be angled different than hers and the baby may be lying different. dont worry about showing yet!

  • i started showing about 3 months along but a friend of mines 7 months now and if she didnt wear tight shirts you would never know it i guess it depends on your body type

  • Everybody is built differently, and your child probably won't be the same size or build as your friends. :-) My best friend that is shorter with a different bone structure showed early on, I however went through my entire pregnancy not really showing at all, we're built differently and both our children came out different sizes and builds. I wouldn't worry too much is what I'm saying just enjoy the pregnancy, the no more periods hehe, the getting to have your baby that close and not have to worry about where they are or if they're alright, the bonding moments.
