Should I be this small this far along?

okay well me and my husband were watching Labor Pains with Lindsey Lohan. And he is concern at the size I am at. I am going to be 5 months tomorrow and I'm small. My mom was small with me but then again she was anorxia but still! I'm a little concern!!

  • well how far are you? your 16 week pic looks right on target specially for first kid your skin is tighter takes more to stretch it aka stretch marks also the movie is made to make it look bigger

  • don't worry about how you look on the outside. remember, it''s all about how well the baby is developing inside. and the belly on lindsay lohan is fake. you can't compare yourself to a fake belly. go to, search your week and you can look at other people's belly pics from the same week. they are all shapes and sizes.

  • lol I was watching that movie earlier and was fairly amused. anyways, i dont think you should worry. just keep eating healthy and a lot and ask your doctor if he is concerned or if you should be concerned. no one even know i was pregnant until I was 6 months because I was so small. Congrats :)

  • As long as your doctor says your OK and the baby is fine, you are OK! I am 7 1/2 months and have only gained 11 lbs and my doctor says Im just fine! Nothing wrong at all! Express this to your doctor though so he will know your concerns! He will let you know if something is wrong. Just remember, EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT! Plus I see movies that women look HUGE to me and I feel like Im small but its just how some people carry and how the baby is lying. Talk to your doctor, it will help soothe your concerns! GL! and congrats on your little one!!

  • yea, considering she was not actually pregnant in that movie i don't understand why you would compare yourself to her..she wasn't even preggo. but i didn't show until 7 months with my first and she was perfectly healthy. i am 5 months now and only showing a little.
