I am attaching a picture to this. 11 week pic next to 21 week picture.... WHY am I not showing?? all I feel is if Im bloating up... Im starting to get depressed, I would rather look pregnant than just FAT... Everyone keeps telling me I look amazing for 21 weeks, but this is my 3rd and I feel like I should be SHOWING... not just getting bloated. I have gained 3 lbs so I dont know if its my head playing games with me but when I look in the mirror I feel like I look like a beached whale. AHHHHHH sorry Im just having a hormonal moment... I think.

You have only gained 3 since you got pregnant?

I didn't show with my other two until 6/7 months and then just popped out all @ once.
Don't feel bad! I'd kill for your skinny-ness right now I feel like a friggin whale lol

I didn't pop until around 6 months with my first, you'll be popping soon enough. You look great by the way.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I'm sure you're pop soon! If you're worried about it, you could always call your OB. They do say you're supposed to show earlier with a 2nd or 3rd. I haven't gained anything still but I definitely look pregnant. So much so that this morning when I was getting ready I caught DH staring at me smiling... I asked him what his problem was and he said, "You look pregnant." And his smile got bigger.

I can't see the pic from work; but I am just barely showing. If people guessed, they'd never put me at nearly 5 months. I have only gained about 3 to 4 lbs as well. I typically don't really show or look super-obviously pregnant until my late
2nd trimester or early 3rd. My clients at work still have no idea that I'm expecting; since I wear scrubs. My coworkers can make out the bump a bit; but as far as I know the clients have no idea. Try not to feel bad, just like our babies develop at their pace, in their way; our pregnant bodies develop exactly how they are supposed to.

Do you have pics from your previous pregnancies? Maybe it is just normal for your body to not get as "round". My friend said when she was pregnant she never got a baby belly, she looked like a "box". She just got thick, but no basket ball round belly.

Thank you Alethia for my siggy!
