  • Sweetie..it will come. I didn't even know I was pregnant until I was 19 weeks along. And didn't feel it or see it until after 21 or 22 weeks.

  • Lots of women don't show till later. My SIL never showed till she was almost done with her 7th month. (She as that way with all three)

  • Well as much as you will probably hate to hear this, you are LUCKY you aren't sick all day and well I started showing at 3 months but it looked too like just extra fat, not a cute bump but damn, I showed it off anyway -i was nasueous for 6 straight months every day all day - so just wait the bump will come -

  • Calm down, and eat healthy. Your body is adjusting to this special time in your life. Keep in contact with your Dr. and don't miss any appointments. Enjoy your pregnancy, you'll grow soon enough.

  • The bump will come, I promise! Especially if this is your first it isn't uncommon to not show until much later. My SIL didn't show until about 23 weeks with her first, but with her second she was showing at 12. With my first I started showing at 18 weeks and now with my second I'm not showing at all at 19 and a half weeks. Every pregnancy varies because the uterus grows differently each time. Hang in there. You'll have that cute bump soon enough.

  • i didn't even know i was pregnant till i was 20 weeks along.... i didn't feel pregnant, i didn't look pregnant, and no one even thought i was. i wore my normal clothes until i was about 33 weeks pregnant, then i bought a pair of yoga shorts and a few tank tops..... and wore that for the rest of the time. every body is different.

  • The bump will come and then you'll be wishing it didn't lol. I had the same problem I didn't get really big until the 5- 6 month and then I had a huge bump all of a sudden. Don't worry about it if you feel ok and the dr says everything is fine then it is, it will come trust me.
