Let me start off by saying I love all of you gals.  You are very informative and helpful and I don't know what I would do with out all of you.  I am 12 week and 6 days along and yesterday I felt very prego, my belly stuck out and I just felt prego.  Now to day my belly is flatter and doesn't stick out as much  and I don't feel prego.  Is this normal?  This is my second baby and I don't remember anything like this with DD.  Maybe I just want to look prego sooner because I want to be big and round.  I don't know anything would make me feel better at this point.

i didnt feel prego for a long time with my 2nd. i wanted the belly as soon as i found out so i could tell the world! even after i started telling people (around 19 weeks... it almost killed me to keep it a secret that long) no one believed i was preg. or the figured i had just found out and was only a couple weeks. here is a pic of me from mid pregnancy... i was 22.5 weeks in this pic and people still didnt believe i was preg. i took longer to show with this one that i did my first and i thought i was going to show sooner so i was kind of disappointed. lol. youll feel preg soon enough and miss the days you didnt! good luck momma!

you are still early- early enough that bloating can come and go and make your belly come and go, too.  It happened to me alot in the beginning of this pregnancy. And on the days that I looked really pregnant, my symptoms were more intense. My doctor said it was because of the hormone fluctuations causing the symptoms impacts the bloating, too...

It  was a little unnerving... but once I hit 15 weeks, the belly never went away...

Its normal :) You should be bloated in the beginning and then one morning you will wake up and it will be gone...I was around 12 weeks when I woke up one morning and the bump was gone. I also didnt have any symptoms of pregnancy until 8 weeks, I didnt even know I was pregnant...I had one day when I felt off and took the test on a whim but, it could have been a stomach bug.  Also, the baby could have moved further back.

I feel the same way I am big sometimes and little some other times!! its normal!!

I'm going through the same thing!  I showed almost immediately after finding out I was pregnant with my DD (I mean you could look at me & tell I was pregnant at 9 weeks!), but so far with this one, I'm not showing very much at all.  Some days I see a little belly, but it goes away.  Every pregnancy is different & pretty soon we'll all be big & showing--LOL

So I'm not nearly as far along but this is my second pregnancy and I've noticed a lot of bloating and fullness. Some days it's more than others, so I guess its normal! lol

I am on my second pregnancy and I am 8 weeks and I thought I was getting a tiny rounding but now I am completely flat.  I guess it is bloating.  i cant wait for my bump either.  My bump didnt show up until 8 months last time so wish me luck!
