I basically had a flat stomach until after 20 weeks with my first baby. This time I've been enormous since 12 weeks. I don't know what makes bellies different from one baby to the next!

maybe you have a tilted uterus. I do and until this pregnancy i didnt show prior to 22weeks. Sometimes i would bloat but it would be gone. I tell you i got up today and my belly was nearly flat lol. at 21 weeks. Its funny!! This is my 20 week photo. With baby 5, and barely there lol. I think ALL my bloat may be finally gone and im just REALLY showing what is uterus and what is blub.

might be a stupid question, but can your uterus tilt between pregnancies? i showed super early with my first son, so i dont think that was the case before...

I'm halfway and not showing at all, at 26 weeks with DS people were already asking me if I was due any day..It's strange...This baby is really really low in my pelvis and sideways. I feel him/her a lot but the movements are right at my bikini line..I was thinking maybe since my hips spread a whole jeans size and never went back there's lots of extra room in there for LO to hide. I get a bloat belly every once in a while and goo ahahaha there it is..but then it's gone when I wake up. I was also thinking it could be due to my physical therapy 2x a week for my SPD plus the mini assignments I was given for home with the abdominal engaging, pelvic tilts, and the oh so many kegels tightening my non existant ab and pelvic floor muscles..

I'm 20 weeks and my dad was over Saturday... He hasn't seen me since we announced and he kept asking where the bump is!

Then again I wear sweaters... But he can't believe I'm so small...

I'm definitely carrying high tho..

a.sue- i had shoulder surgery a few weeks (less than four) before i got pregnant with harvey. so i was lifting weights and doing cardio at physical therapy three times a week until i was seven months pregnant. and even with all that extra exercise, i got huge! people used to laugh at me using the various machines with a big baby bump. and comparing pictures from last pregnancy to now, i was noticably bigger at seven weeks last time than i am now, at seventeen weeks with this little one. so the extra exercise doesnt seem to have any bearing on my showing, at least for me. its just so strange!

Ahh I wish I had that problem! I started showing this time (#2) like 5-6 weeks sooner than with DD. I'm as big now at 21w as I was at 26w with DD.

I'm with you! I'm 20 weeks and hardly have a bump at all. It comes and goes. I'm average sized- not skinny by any means, but don't have too much plump so I'm wondering if maybe it's because my hips are on the wider side? Who knows...

No bump except fat here. I am a bit overweight right now anyways. I didn't show with my first until a few weeks before she was due, so I don't expect to show for quite some time. I'm 17w5d today. I have been wearing maternity pants because I cannot stand regular jeans right now.
