So who else doesn't have a defined bump yet? Still in regular clothes? Have to explain to people you're pregnant?

I'm 19 weeks tomorrow and I definitely have a belly but the way I get one it's not cute and round etc it's kind of long and lumpy lol Most of my clothes aren't that fitted in the belly anyway because I have extra skin from previous pregnancies that I like to hide (so gross. So I don't look pregnant at all. I think it would be cuter in maternity clothes but I started this pregnancy smaller than my last one and none of mine fit yet and I don't want to buy any until I have to

Anyone else still waiting for their bump??

I don't really feel like I look pregnant yet. Just fat. Although my pants don't fit. I'm having a hard time finding a good pair of maternity pants, so I have a belly band to cover the fact that my regular pants aren't buttoned up.

I'm pretty overweight to begin with, and I still just look FAT... I do have a cute roundish bump when I sit down though, even a little boy asked if there was a baby in there earlier this week. I don't usually start showing till 24-28weeks..

I mostly look just fat... by mostly, ya I look fat.

I try to wear shirts that make it look more like a baby belly but I have gotten fat everywhere. I have gained 15lbs and its mostly in my arms and legs and face

I am 17 weeks and I was out yesterday and pretty much everyone I saw knew I was pregnant and very surprised. this will be our 5th child so I think that is why I am so big. I usually always measure 5 weeks ahead at my appointments every pregnancy. Not sure why...but I do have big babies.

Well, I'm measuring ahead (I believe my uterus was already at my belly button at my 17 week appt) and I'm certainly bigger than I was last time around at this time but I don't think anyone but my husband can really tell yet. There is a little bump there but I'm sure most people would assume it's fat. I'm thinking it will be another month or so before I'm obviously pregnant. If I was really skinny it would probably be a more apparent baby bump but because I started the pregnancy 5-10lbs overweight I'm def. not one of those types.

I'm still fat. My pants are getting harder to wear, but I can still wear them, even if not buttoned. I'm losing holes on my belt quickly though.

This is baby number 1 for me & I'm nearly 17 weeks & I've actually lost a ton of weight this pregnancy (strangely not due to ms) I'm a curvy girl anyway, but I still don't feel like I'm "showing" :/ however when I eat I feel like I'm 9 months HAHA!!

I swear sometimes I feel like I am showing and sometimes not...I think I need to just start wearing more form fitting clothes and it would definitely start looking more pregnant. I think the main problem is all my shirts are empire waisted or just loose in the belly because that's how I buy my clothes??? I'm not in maternity but I'm going to have to break down and buy a pair of jeans soon- although only some of them are even a little tight...

If my belly would stop being jiggly it might look like a baby bump lol. I'm still 3 pounds under my start weight though... Normal pants are still fitting just fine.
