Does anyone else have a small belly?

I'm 32 weeks. I just started showing like last month. Everyone is constantly commenting about my belly size. It is wrecking my nerves. The doctor said at 32 weeks I was measuring 31 weeks and that was normal because I am having a girl and girls are smaller. I guess if the doctor says I'm ok then I shouldn't worry. Anyone else like this?

  • Measuring is just an estimate of the number of weeks along. Being a week or two off doesn't matter. If the doctor thinks there is a problem he will do an ultrasound to make sure the baby is growing and there is enough fluid.

    Mothers who smoke can have small babies.

  • Thanks. I definitely don't smoke. I can't get any healthier right now. No processed foods, only grains, vegetables, and lean meats. And I'm still working out 1 hour a day.

  • i smoke and my belly is is far from small and my baby is around 7lbs right now at 38wks so smoking isnt always the reason for a small baby some people just have small babies

  • I keep being told that my belly is small but I don't see it, lol. I'm 36 weeks and I haven't gained any weight. My belly has gotten bigger and I measure out okay and to me thats what matters. Because of me not gaining weight I've had to get checked a lot more than with my other pregnancies but everything checks out okay and my baby is doing fine which is also, all that matters, lol. Good for you! I don't have the restraint to eat like you do but YOU GO GIRL!

  • Nope i'm huge and people love to say it. 33 weeks- there's a pic of my belly on my profile.

    I'm constantly in tears from the mean comments my family give me about it.

  • I was small my entire pregnancy and I just had a healthy 7lbs 5oz baby boy (by c-section). My boyfriend looks at him all the time and says "How did he fit in there?". Lol.
