I know when I'm HUGE I won't be wishing this anymore, but I'm 13 weeks tomorrow and I feel like I'm not showing at all. My pants still fit me, only a little bit tighter and I haven't gained much weight yet either. The neurotic side of me wants to keep thinking there is something wrong but I'm getting much better at reassuring myself, and I know that it's still early for me to be showing. I was kind of looking forward to having a baby bump when I go on my tropical vacation in 2 weeks but it's looking like that might not be the case

I have a small bump but it still just looks kinda like I've let myself go I can't wait to pop out a little more ! With my first pregnancy, it took forever for me to pop out. I was probably at least 20 weeks along before I looked for sure pregnant.

I'm bigger anyway, but around 14 weeks my belly just exploded. It seems to happen overnight. You'll be there soon

There is much baby growth between now and two weeks, I bet you will be sporting a belly by then.

I didn't really show with my first until past 20 weeks so it can take longer with your 1st baby and depending on the person. You will have a baby bump before you know it!!

I know I shouldn't be wishing away the "clothes still fit" days! I will miss them I'm sure!

Seems like I popped out the past couple of days. None of my pre-pregnancy jeans fir so I'm in yoga pants since they stretch... and I've in only maternity shirts now. Most of my shirts were smaller fitting and I have this bump now and it made my shirts ride up. I've gained belly, but actually lost weight. Figure that one out.

With my first, I couldn't wait to wear maternity clothes so I know where you're coming from. With that being said, I think you must be gaining weight at a healthy rate.. my doc says that if your tummy gets too round too quick, it's because I'm the one gaining the weight and not the baby.. she said that junk food goes to my hips.. but healthy food goes to the baby.

I'm not sure if that info is useful to you or not.. but you'll pop soon!

I agree! You will start showing soon! I was showing a small bit by the time I was about 14-15 weeks with my first! This time around my belly rounded out pretty fast but I've only gained 3 lbs so I know I haven't put on a ton of fat either! Im also really short so there really isn't much room for anything to go but up and out! Lol!

I bet you will be showing by the time you go on your vacation! It will give you an excuse to go buy some cute tanks and sundresses!

I've been googling this morning (I'm AWFUL about this!!! LOL) because my stomach is as flat as it was pre-pregnancy - but I know it must be that anything I was seeing before was bloating! Also I can definitely feel and see a little pooch right above my pubic bone, which I'm concluding must be my uterus. I can only really feel it when I'm standing up, when I lay down I don't feel very much. The pooch made me feel a little better! Just discovered it last night! Does that sound about right to you guys? Would my uterus still be that low?

the top of your uterus should reach your belly button by 20 weeks I believe so that sounds about right. It's hard to "feel" pregnant when there isn't a belly, I get it! your honeymoon might be the last time you can sport a flat belly in a bikini for a while

You'll be showing soon! In the meantime, enjoy still fitting in all of your clothes. You'll be sick of maternity by the time baby comes along!

My MIL and I were discussing similar and she made a good point. If you aren't in maternity until later in the pregnancy it almost makes the pregnancy seem to go faster. All of a sudden you look pregnant and then before too long baby arrives!

Have fun on your vacation!

I have a smallish bump that has been there since my son was born. So far no one has said I look pregnant yet.

I loved it when I started getting a belly. Everybody said I made for a cute pregnant lady. Everybody smiled at me where ever I went. I even enjoyed woddling around. It just added to the effect.

My back never hurt me that much when I was big, but I did have sciatic nerve pain around this time last pregnancy. I have very little this time.

Awww!! I understand where you are coming from, I felt the same way my first pregnancy! I am definitely showing now, and I certainly hope it is obvious I am pregnant because I hate that in between stage. I am sure you will pop very soon. Like some of the other ladies happens sometimes it literally happens overnight!!
