  • Everyone's body is different. I didn't start showing with my first until almost 8 months, then I popped, it was kinda funny. I wouldn't worry about whether or not you're showing.

  • Yeah I didn't show for a long time either. Be thankful!!! As long as the doctor says your baby is healthy and a growing fine, don't worry.

  • you're still early enough (especially with your first since apparently it takes longer) that I wouldn't be worried. your OB would let you know if you aren't growing enough.

  • No! You'll look it soon enough. A friend of mine was 5 months before she showed and she had a GIANT healthy baby boy:) If you are tall then it may take longer to show also. I am super short and was pretty thin pre-pregnancy so I started showing at like 6 weeks! LOL! (That's a bit of an exaggeration).

  • I am 20 weeks and not showing at all, my cousin didnt show until 8 months and she was a very small person, so dont worry about it.

  • you'll wake up one day and won't be able to see your vagina, that happened to me at 21 weeks... it's dangerous to shave your snatch without a clear view by the way :)

  • Thats still kinda early, I didnt' show with either of mine till about 22 or 23 weeks n that was just a little bit. Ask your Dr. if your measuring where they think u should be and if they think your gaing weight right.
