Does not showing early mean...

I am 17 weeks and not even showing yet. I have the slightest bump but it's more bloating (only predominant when I'm backed up (TMI) but once I finally go to the bathroom it's gone and I'm flat again!)

I know everyone is different, but does this mean I will stay smaller throughout all my pregnancy? Or get huge super fast?

What were your experiences? Oh yah, this is my first.

I started showing at around 23 weeks. Not sure if it means you will have a smaller belly in general, but you could say I do. People say I look smaller than I am.  I went to my first birhting class last night and all the others looked bigger than me and we are around the same weeks.  My midwife says how the baby is growing big though.  I had a pretty flat/tone stomach before getting pregnant so that might be one of many reasons why I look smaller than I am.

I stayed very small for the first 7 months with my first, couldn't even tell I was pregnant for awhile I just looked like I gained a few pounds. Then BAM she started gaining and my belly got huge, she was born 10 days late and at 9 1/2lbs!!!

Now 37 1/2 weeks with my second, and the belly growth was slow at the begining again but faster than my first.

/\ /\ This fiirst pic was 25 weeks with my first /\ /\

/\ /\ 2nd pic, I was 30 weeks /\ /\

/\ /\ 3rd pic, 37 weeks /\ /\
