  • i didn't "pop" until i was 6 months pregnant.. i know someone though who didn't show with any ofh er kids.. she literally went to the ER in labor and they told her to go home she was a nut job... sure enough she was inlabor. but generally around 6 months

  • Why would they call you a liar if you have proof ? Doctors note,ultrasound,vitamins,when the baby kicks,fetal heart beat.
    I mean you should not need to show any however,end the questions than end the assocaitions with such people that should only show support.
    If your skinny you may not show until the late third trimester.
    My cousin was overdue and she looked about 3 months along.
    She had a healthy baby.
    That is your only concern right now your health & baby.
    Take care.

  • You're fine, and don't worry about what other people think, you will prove them all wrong when you have your new little bundle of joy. I didn't start showing with my first daughter until almost 7 months, and when I went back to college after the summer (she was born in July), my friends didn't believe that I had a child because they swore I couldn't have been pregnant before I left in May. Even though I'm a lot fatter nowadays, I just started showing where other people could tell I'm pregnant and I am 6 months along now with my second daughter (8 years later). A lot of people at work didn't believe I was pregnant until a few weeks ago.

  • Some people just don't show, I know a lady who has twin boys...she didn't show at all...never even went up a size in clothing and she was very slim. The babies were not small either, around 6 pounds each. (wow, I'm old...I just realized that those babies are 17 yrs old now....)

  • Don't worry about it! I was the same way with my first pregnancy...I started at 5'3", 115 lbs and didn't "show" at all until I was almost 6 months pregnant!

    This second time around is a totally different story for me...lol. But anyway, it's normal and eventually no one will be able to deny that you've got a baby cooking in there! ;-)
