I feel really small for 20 weeks pregnant, is that normal!

I look at other girls pregnant that are either behind my due date or slightly before and I just seem really small. I am a small person to begin with, and really in shape, I thought i would be showing alot for being so small and i am not, It really makes me emotional. Is this normal!

  • Well if it makes you feel better, from looking at your picture, you are bigger than I ever got my whole pregnancy with dd!

  • First, then is baby #1 for you it looks like, from your profile. Your body is still getting used to stretching itself.

    Second, you haven't even begun to grow. You still have 20 weeks. You'll get bigger, don't worry, it'll happen overnight. I am a shorter person (5'3") and was in shape during my pregnancy. One day, it was like "Damn, where did this belly come from??" ...
