  • LOL...I didn't have a bump until I was 20+ weeks along. And no one could tell until a few weeks after that. Don't worry. Some women never really show and some blow up immediately.

  • I didn't show much until I was about 23-24 weeks. Seeing that you have had 2 miscarriages just keep watch.

  • Every woman carries differently. I just hit 18 weeks today & do have a little bump, but this is my 2nd you show faster the second time. I could still hide it if I wanted to :) If you're very into exercise or dance like you said, then it doesn't surprise me. Also, are you tall? I'm relatively tall so there's lots of room for the baby. That could be why too! Try not to stress yourself out too much, I'm sure you're fine. Your little bump will pop out soon. I remember with my first it was right around the 5th month (that has just started for you).

  • I didn't show with my twins until I was almost 6 mos along, but earlier with later pregnancy. Just don't overdo it and rest as much as possible.

  • Every woman is different. Most likely, you'll wake up one morning, look in the mirror, and find that you've "popped"! I can understand worrying when you've suffered miscarriages in the past. Sending lots of healthy pregnancy/healthy baby dust your way!

  • Each person is different.
    I didn't show until I was 5 months
