I get that ALL THE TIME! This being my 3rd baby, I think everyone is expecting me to be HUGE already. I FEEL huge but every single person honest to goodness tells me I barely look pregnant and can't believe I am almost 20 weeks. Really? Come on, I look in a mirror and see this huge belly staring back at me! I do think I am smaller now than with my son, but not far off....hmmmmm I think this call for a picture and a panel of judges!

So a few days shy of 20 weeks with baby #3. Big right?

Well... Hate to tell you but the weight gain this early is mostly body fat. The babies, and everything that goes with them doesn't weigh all that much yet.

You look great though! And that does look like a fairly small bump for the third baby.

This is my second pregnancy and I am nearly 20 weeks. My bump is pathetically small also. I hide it well due to a long torso (well thats my reasoning anyway!) I ALWAYS get raised eyebrows when I say I'm halfway... even my doctor yesterday said "wow you hide it well" most days you wouldnt even know I was pregnant, only if Im wearing tight clothing.

Your bump is lovely and small By the end we all look nice and big anyway don't we.

Everyone is different. You look like your pretty small to begin with. I wouldn't go so far as to say your tiny though, I think you look good I can tell your pregnany easily. I am about the same size as you right now and I'm only 16 weeks, but I had most of it before I was pregnant so I can't tell what came from baby lol

I'm about the same as you, maybe a little smaller. I got the same exact comment today, my friend was shocked to find out I have gained 10 pounds. She said I'm way too small for 17 weeks. We'll get there!

I'm 20 weeks and I've gained 9 pounds...I wait tables and most customes at work are like "I can't tell!"...

I have a noticeable bump...so I'm thinking ok these people just think I'm fat or have a beer belly...nice...

I think our bumps are comparable actually! But in baggy clothes you can't really tell, I have to be wearing something tight.

Your bump is small and ADORABLE!!!!!! I love hearing "you're so small!." You're right tho. for a third baby, most would expect you'd have a bigger belly. EXCEPT w/ my sister in law's 3rd she was the smallest size. maybe all that chasing around the other two keeps you from a bigger belly?

That is a cute bump it is small for a third but still very very precious. I am a bit bigger I think. I need to know how to attach pics directly instead of a link haven't figured it out.

You're small, but super cute! I'd love to be able to hide my pregnancy longer.

Thanks ladies! I mean I certainly don't think I am 'tiny' or 'small' for that matter but I do FEEL huge! I look at my tummy and think WOW...I am just shocked how many people think I am not very big for #3! Maybe this baby will be smaller? Oh and since DD is now in school, I am walking her to and from every day....which I think is keeping me in better shape this time around!
