Getting discouraged

I am almost 21 weeks pregnant and still look like I'm 3 months. I had an ultrasound at 19 weeks and he was measuring three days ahead and moving a lot. I also feel him every day. I was very thin when I got pregnant, so I thought I would show really quickly. I'm getting discouraged that I'm showing very little. I keep worrying that he isn't growing.

  • According to your measurements, your baby IS Growing! your midwife would tell you if you weren't.
    Eat healthy and your baby will thrive!
    Don't worry about not showing yet. I bet in about another month, you will have a glorious round belly to show off!

  • Don't worry he is growing. I showed late too when I was pregnant as well but in my last trimester everything changed.
