  • I wouldn't worry we all grow and carry different. I grew and carried like a HIPPO.

  • Don't worry, I am sure everything is fine, you are just one of those women who doesn't show much, we should all be so luckY!

  • I wouldn't worry about it too much either. A lot of the "showing" depends on your body shape, and where the baby is located. My friend didn't start showing until she was about to give birth! And her baby was perfectly normal size-wise... Me, I start showing at about 10 weeks, heh.

  • dont worry. at 22 weeks i wasnt that big. plus, i had a friend who was pg in high school, and she didn't show until a few weeks before delivery. dont worry, mama. if the baby's movin, you're doin good! just listen to your dr, and dont stress!

  • plus, until i was 7 months preggers, i refused to wear pregnancy clothes. i wore my size 5 jeans to death! (i dont recommend this, i split those, and they were my faves :( )
