It's normal not to really show until 18+ weeks especially with your first. Your uterus is being stretched a lot so tenderness and cramping is also normal.

Sounds pretty normal.  Some women don't start showing until 6 or 7 months with their first.

Totally normal sweety, I'm at 11 weeks with #2, and I can feel my uterus (I know that to feel for), but all I'm showing right now is bloat and the bit of extra weight on my shoulders.

Yes, that is normal. Most women start showing around 16-20 weeks with their first, and at 12 weeks, your uterus is just starting to peek out above your pubic bone. The tenderness is also normal.
