Because I feel like it is just me. I was bloated at the start and pants were tight but now I am back to fitting in my regular sized pants. I was looking through the baby bump pics and wondering if something is wrong. My next appt isn't till my nt scan on 12/10 so I need a little reassurance.

This is my second pregnancy. I am about 35 pounds overweight. I still have ms but not enough to not eat on a daily basis. In fact all I eat are carbs so should be gaining weight. So far I am up only two pounds but maybe I lost some weight between then and now, and my pants aren't tighter due to the weight I possibly lost?

I don't know. I am worried. To top it off I had a dream last night I was bleeding and that is the dream I normally have every month when I going to start my period so wondering if it's some sort of premonition. Argh!! I know I should be practical but I a hormonal wreck so I don't think its possible lol

Eta I've suffered a missed m/c in the past which was a total shock and I'm sure is driving my anxiety on this.

If you made it this far, thanks for listening.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful signature!

I am 13 weeks tomorrow and not showing at all when I wear normal clothes! I am showing once I lift my shirt up, though. I'm pretty small, but I have always had a little pudge and the only difference is it has gotten tighter and harder, like solidified if that makes sense. You can tell it is getting ready to be a baby bump. I probably won't officially show through my clothes until my belly starts to grow out, rather than just get hard

I'm 12 weeks tomorrow and not showing either. Just bloat that comes and goes. I'm average weight for my height. I haven't really gained weight yet, been going up and down about 1-1.5 pounds. But that is within my normal weight variations.

Don't let it worry you! Everyone grows and shows at different times. I am short (5'3") and I am a size 2/4. I am 11.5wks and this is number 5 and not showing. I just don't show until later even with my uterus sitting higher than normal. I also haven't gained any weight, either yet.

Not gaining weight in the first trimester is actually pretty common so I wouldn't worry about that - your body is burning a whole lotta calories right now even though you probably don't feel like it. My bump shows when I wear tights with fitted tunic-style sweaters (i.e. my bump pic) or a dress but today I am wearing a rather fitted pencil skirt and you can barely tell there is a bump there.

Every person is different *and* every pregnancy is different so even if you showed earlier in a previous pregnancy, you could very well show much later this time around.

Try to not worry too much (not worrying at all is impossible, I know!) and the bump will probably appear seemingly overnight

I have not gained any weight at all yet (I'm 12 weeks 1 day). I can tell that I have a little more bump than before (which was all totally left over flub from being pregnant with DS 3+ years ago...ugh), and I can FEEL my uterus outside my pelvic bone a little bit. That said, DH and any friends who know I'm pregnant promise they don't see anything at all. And my MIL made a comment about me looking like I've lost weight. I'm taking it and running with it and praying that I don't show before December 30th!

I haven't gained weight yet either ,and I am not yet showing. I am super bloated and everything feels too tight on my belly but I don't have a "bump" yet. I got a real bump around 14 weeks last time. First time took forever. Most "bump"s this early are bloat, the uterus is still pretty small

I'm showing now but I wasn't a week and a half ago. I'm down 7 lbs from pre-pregnancy weight, which is a ton for me since I'm small to begin with. I did not loose weight like this with DD. Each pregnancy is different as is every woman.

I'm not showing yet, like chrysalis described, I had a little pudge to start with that’s starting to feel harder but not enough to make my pants tight. I’m think I won’t be showing for another couple of weeks.

Im not showing either, and for me the showing sooner with each pg was a myth. I didn't have a good bump with my 4th until 28 weeks, given he was a small baby but I didn't show with my second until 24 weeks and she was average size at birth. With those pg's I was smaller than I am now, about a size 2 jeans, now Im a 4-5 and still nothing. I did have a lot of bloating early on but that has gone away.

This is my second and not showing. Granted I am like 40 pounds overweight but... I think it's normal. We're still so early!

I am 10w4d and I am not showing at all. All my clothing fit just fine and I am 4-5 pounds lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight. I had some belly fat even before I got pregnant and right now my husband says he can't see any difference.

I totally understand your desire to have a little bump. I can't wait to get it. It will be a nice additional confirmation that everything is fine with the pregnancy.

Late to the not showing party, LOL. But I am not really showing either, just bloat which has gone away and comes back every few days. I am 13 weeks and have gained 4 lbs so far.

Not showing, and I am a plus size mom. I probably won't show for a few more months. You might find the m/s ease in the next couple of weeks but that's just the placenta taking over. It will be ok!

I'm showing, and feeling like I look 9 months.. but I have only (ugh) gained 5 pounds (actually lost 1 in the last two weeks) and this past week or so have noticed that the growth is slowing down. I feel like most of my weight and bump have been bloat up until now.
