  • Don't worry, it has nothing to do with the size of your baby. I was as big as a house with both of mine but a friend of mine didn't even look pregnant when she was full term and her baby was over 8lbs.
    Different women carry different ways.

    You ultrasound would have shown if the baby was underdeveloped or not.

  • I agree with the first poster. I was HUGGGGGGEEEEE. Everyone kept asking me if I was having twins, which I wasn't, and my belly stuck out so much. My son did weigh 8 lbs though, but would've thought he was like 12 lbs by how big I was! My cousin on other hand WAS pregnant with twins and she wasn't even close to being as big as I was. Everyone carries differently.

  • I blew up with roundness after 6 months. Before that, people thought I was lying when I said I was pregnant. It doesn't really have to do with the baby's size so much as how you are carrying. A lot of it has to do with where the baby has decided they are comfortable being positioned in your body. I really wouldn't worry about it.

  • I wouldn't be worried, I didn't show until my last month and I had a 7# baby. I'm taller too tho so thats probably why I hid him so well.

  • I was 25 weeks pregnant and people were STILL telling me I wasn't showing. You'll pop out soon enough, but everyone else is right...we all carry differently.
