  • Some women dont start showing until later....I'm am not one of those lucky one, I start showing early and then I get asked if I'm having twins.... but you could also be losing some weight in other places and gaining with the baby so it evens out and you dont notice right away.

  • You are this your first baby? Do you excercise a lot? A lot of factors play into it, including genetics.....

  • I was the same way during my first pregnancy. At 7 months along, people were still afraid to ask me if I am pregnant or not because they didn't want to risk offending me if I wasn't, and I am a stick figure lol There in the last 2 months I totally blew up like the good year blimp lol As long as the growth of your baby is on track then you have nothing to worry about =)

  • A friend of ours is a "bean pole" (we joke with her that if she turns sideways she disappears). When she was pregnant with her first you wouldn't know. They day she went in to have the baby she had a little bump and that was it. The baby weighed almost 8 lbs. Her doc told her she was carrying it all in the back.

    Me, I was about 8 months before I looked like I was def pregnant and not just "pudgy". With second and third, I started showing almost right away and was constintly asked if I was having twins. I'm 5'2" and was 145 lbs when I got pregnant wiht our second and 158 lbs when i got pregnant with our third. and I got HUGE with both of them.

  • I'm about 18 weeks along and everyone acts so surprised when I tell them I'm pregnant because I'm hardly showing. I was worried about it as well, but my doctor informed me everything is fine. I'm glad I'm not alone though!
