I have a little bump that I notice but others can't. Does this mean something is wrong? I always feel like something is wrong with the baby and I just want to run to the emergency room just to get an ultrasound.


I'm seriously acting like I have never been pregnant before but It's been 7 years...I forgot!. LOL

You probably notice it more because its your body. Everyone shows at different times. There are women who barely protrude out because they have long torsos.

I wouldn't be worried.

I had an 8lb baby and I had a little basketball belly.

My bump became hard and much more noticeable in the past week. But I am small-framed so I think that's why.

I'm also more than a week ahead of you! Don't sweat it, I'm sure everything is fine -- just watch, you'll pop out overnight

I think the ladies who are showing yet are probably a bit on the early side so I wouldn't worry about it . I was actually surprised that I have a bit of a belly now seeing as this is my first. Though I am only fairly short (159cms) and I think I have a pretty short torso. I still look mostly just fat . This is my 12 week belly pic and about the smallest I get during the day. Throughout the day I seem to find a fair bit of extra girth.

I remember following one woman on here a few years ago who didn't start showing until around 30 weeks! I would be kinda annoyed but I guess that's good in another way too.

Yes I am definitely showing!!! But I just had a baby in January, so my muscles are prob still loose. I did not show until 26 weeks with my daughter.

Okay. So I have to wait a little longer to get that big bump. My belly is hard but I just thought it would be bigger.

I don't feel like I'm showing at all...my husband swears I am. I think the baby is just pushing my fat out making me look fatter. I didn't show till way late with DD...I didn't have a noticeable bump till I was 24 or more weeks.

I always show immediately. My sister didn't show until she was 4 months or so. My supermodel-looking SIL didn't show until halfway into the 2nd trimester. All three of us had healthy babies.

I like to think I'm showing...but then I realize it's just a food baby. I try to check in the morning when there's nothing in my stomach. Not a whole lot going on in the bump department.

I def am but my belly muscles never fully recovered after the first baby. I even did p90x every spring for the last 3 years and ... haha nope! I bloat really easily now so I am showing really quick.

Yes I am showing this is my second baby and they say you show quickly but I am mildly concerned that there may be more than one!!! My son is only 14months and I'm small 5'1 135 so I'm sure that has something to do with it but I look like I'm 4-5 months with my son I was huge!! I would post a pic if I wasn't mobile I looked like I was carrying two and only had a 6lb 7oz boy

I'm not showing and I won't for a long time still. I'm a bigger, well im a fluffy gal, but short only 5'2. I hide my babies far back and all around, plus my fat gets in the way so I don't get that early cute round baby bump.

I was already chunky to start with but it's pretty obvious to myself now that I have a belly. To anyone else I probably just look fat but my belly is definitely more round and seems like I will carry high just the way it's starting out. Maternity clothes definitely make you look more pregnant too lol

I feel like it's noticeable but I think only to me really. I did have a coworker (they all know) say my boobs have gotten a lot bigger. LOL

I'm thinking that since I'm fairly tall 5'8" that I won't be showing for a while. Come to think of it...the only other person in the family that has a similar body type to mine (and she's waaay skinnier) didn't start showing until maybe four or five months. But then because she's so skinny, she just popped out like a basketball. So maybe that's how my tummy will be.
