Hi ladies, just want to know if any of you haven't started to pop out yet?

I'm a bigger (plus size) lady and although most of my chub is evenly distributed throughout my body, I still have extra padding on my tummy so there's no noticeable difference when I look in the mirror. I haven't gained any weight either so I really just look the same as I did before getting preggo. In a couple more days I'll be 15 weeks. Feeling like even though I know I'm pregnant, it just doesn't feel AND look like I'm pregnant. For some reason it bothers me because I'd thought by the second trimester I'd pop out.

Anyone else experiencing this?

I've lost 8 lbs (give or take a few) since I found out. And I haven't changed anything. I'm not petite but I'm not plus size either.

Sometimes, my belly looks bigger than other times but I haven't popped either.
I'm waiting impatiently for when I actually look pregnant.

Just be patient. It'll happen for us both.

I've got a pretty big preggo belly going already but I showed really early with my DD as well. Everyone is different though...I was hanging out with a girl in my office that is 28 weeks pregnant and my belly was bigger than hers. We all show different

Thanks for all the insight ladies -- this is my first pregnancy and maybe I'm just one of those people that will take a while to show. Waiting impatiently with you sydneyrose

I was showing for several weeks a LOT, but over the past weekend, all of my bloat went away, and I fit back in my regular pants. I decided to embrace it. I can feel the baby bump but it is just baby bump and not bloating all the way from my hips to my shoulders anymore.

It took me forever to show with my first and I never got huge. This one is coming slowly but surely. I'm not that big but I'm showing a bit.

I'm at 17 weeks now and can still fit into my size 12 jeans comfortably (uncomfortably if I'm sitting, lol). But I also wear maternity just because it feels better on the tummy. Not showing yet. This is our 2nd, too.

I haven't gained anything yet, i'm still down 4lbs but I had a fluffy belly before I was pregnant so I decided today that I was going to buy maternity clothes and just stick my belly out instead of my usual sucking it in. I was so much more comfortable today. I found some really cute maternity shirts at target today i'm wondering if it will look maternity-ish after baby comes I really like these shirts.

I am at 14.5 weeks... I wore some normal pants on Monday. They are uncomfortable when I sit (that is new) but still don't look are feel pregnant. I never had morning sickness (knock on wood) or any other real symptoms. This is my first pregnancy and I am very thin. I thought it would take a while to show, but not this long. I have to go back to work after the baby, so I've been looking into day cares, but I don't want to go on tours until I atleast look like I could be a little pregnant.

I have a few maternity pants my mom bought me... sometimes I wear them because they make me feel alittle more pregnant. Lol. I am with you... I wish there was a little more pop now... but I think later on I will like not being big. SIGH!!!

I am just at 17 weeks and I have been showing for about a week or so, I am still in my more loose jeans and you can see the bump better if you just wear the maternity pants, normal jeans I just look fat... this is my first also.

I am 16 weeks and finally just started really showing. Enough that everyone is commenting on how cute my belly is.
