i'm getting annoyed, now. this is so dumb! i'm 17 weeks along today, and i am still comfortably wearing pre-pregnancy clothes. i'm almost halfway through this pregnancy, and i've been suffering--- i kinda want to LOOK like i'm pregnant, kwim?! ...meanwhile, my barely there bump looks like my "5 weeks" picture from my first pregnancy. what gives?!?!
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.
At home working mama to four little boys. Expecting our first little MISS in Late July to Early August.
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..
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!

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.
