Five months and little

This is my 1st pregnancy, I'm five months now (21 weeks) and not really showing. I have a small bump but alot of ppl who ask how far along I am and I give them the answer they are a lil'shocked. Some thought I was in my 1st trimester like about 2 months but nope, i'm five months. Anyways I believe i'm normal and healthy, also my mother was tiny in all her pregnancies so Im thinking its genetics. What do you girls think? Were/are you small in your pregnancy?

  • Its different for everyone. If you are eating healthy and taking your vitamins then you are good to go. Be happy you are small. You will pick up in that third trimester.

  • I was VERY small! My 1st was due at the end of January and I didnt start showing where people noticed until around the middle or end of November. Alot of people tried to tell me I was too small or that I wasnt eating enough but my baby was born 8 lbs 3 oz so CLEARLY it wasnt because the baby was too small. I also bounced back to my small stomach after alot faster, but my mom was the same about showing and getting her old stomach back so I think it really depends on the person. I'd just enjoy it! I know I did.

  • I'm happy to be small but ppl do try (unintentionally or intentionally) make me feel bad like i need to gain weight quick but then I stop and think, "I"m not her and she isn't me." The one's that really try to make me feel bad are over weight women, they kinda look up and down at me with attitude on their face. but its okay. why should we be jelous of each other because of weight? its radiculous and immature.

  • my friend had a baby a few years ago and she barely got a bump and her baby was a very healthy 8 pounds as long as your doctors aren't worried i'd not worry
