  • Honey be happy about it !'re probably just carrying this baby more towards your back. I did that with my second too. The third just basically hung down to my knees...LOL.....God Bless

  • I didn't have a belly or start wearing maternity clothes until I was nearly 24 weeks so I wouldn't worry about it as long as your doc says everythings ok.

  • It could be that your baby is just sitting back farther.

  • I didn't show 'til well past 20 weeks and I never had to stop wearing my regular jeans. I had to buy new shirts but that's just because they stopped meeting my pants.

  • have you ever seen pregnant and didn't know it? (or something like that, it's on TLC) there are some women on there who are pretty thin and have other kids, and no one could even tell they were pregnant and then they have full term babies! they just didn't ever show much, no big baby belly. it's different with each pregnancy! GL!
