I am fairly small

I feel like I'm pretty small for 16 weeks. . and this is my second pregnancy. I see all the other girls, and they look more pregnant than me at 12 weeks! Is something wrong,, or do we all just differ that much?

  • I just had my third baby and my tummy was much smaller than I was with my first two. I was sure we would have a 7 lb baby. Well much to my shock, our son was 8lbs 11oz!! I couldn't believe it! He must have just been sitting back further?? I don't know but try not to worry too much. If you are feeling fine and progressing normally, I'm sure baby is cozy and happy! =)

  • Everyone is different and every pregnancy is different. As long as you appts are going well and Dr has no concern. They sit back and enjoy your pregnancy. Don't stress over what either look like.

  • We all differ a lot. It depends on if you're short, tall, small, big, and how you carry the baby. As long as the doc. says everything looks good, don't worry too much about it.

  • I didn't even look pregnant until I was 6 months, and then BOOM, my belly grew like wild fire.

  • Don't worry about it. I was small during my whole pregnancy (at least in other people's opinion) and ended up have a normal sized, healthy baby. It actually made it easier to lose the extra weight after the baby was born. Just be prepared. In your final trimester, you'll hear a lot of people say, "You look so good, considering".
