This is how I was with my first pregnancy. I didn't pop out until about 21-22 weeks. I didn't even get asked if I was pregnant until close to 25 weeks. We are all built differently and will carry differently with each pregnancy.

This is how I was with my first, and now again with my third. I am far from needing maternity clothes at 18 weeks. The other day I mentioned that the baby was wiggling a lot, and my DH told me he sometimes forgets I am pregnant because I am not showing at all with clothes on (I have a small bump when naked)! I'm 5'8" with a long torso. By 25-26 weeks, I finally had a more round bump with my first.

jeez I can't imagine my belly getting any bigger, and then it does. Here I am today at 20 weeks. My jacket is not very comfortable when I zip it up anymore. Maybe I'll have to get a long scarf to cover my belly with my jacket unzipped...

 

 

On another note, my husband felt a kick from one of the babies the other night!

Here's me at 19 weeks and a day. smile.gif The baby (and my belly!) seem to be growing faster now.

Ugh! I need to do another photo. You guys all look so cute! Me and my neighbor friend, who is also pregnant, were baking cookies today and I kept laughing at the site of us with our aprons on over our bellies. They made us look extra pregnant.

I wore one last night and was thinking the same thing!  It was pretty funny looking.

Yeah, similar for me too, I didn't even tell folks at work (except my boss so he knew why I was so tired) until 20 weeks because there just wasn't anything to see. It's been fun this time to look pregnant nearly from the start, but not so fun now that it is harder to sleep smile.gif

This is me in the morning at 18 weeks :) This looks like me when I was 8 mos pregnant with my daughter... Still measuring about 10 cm ahead now, so yes, we're definitely suspecting multiples. I'm getting more anxious/excited about finding out for sure. Sleeping is getting so uncomfortable! I wish my insurance would get finalized already so I can go see the chiro!

i dont know if u have seen my pics but im 5'8/5'9 and im only just starting to even vaguely look preg naked.. and even then ive looked fatter from constipation and needing to wee before.. im 20 weeks on thurs and noone can tell im preg with my clothes on, a friend of mine whos similarly framed to me said her preg didnt properly "show" until she was 6 months.. i really thought i'd show by now.. but seems are frames dont show so easy!! (also lookin at other belly threads i noticed people with long backs generally just dont show til 5-7 months!!.. its crazy)

I wish I could just open a little window and peek! That big belly *already* is why I would be floored if there was only ONE baby in there! It is hysterical how big I am already, after waiting for what seemed like forever to show with my first and just looking fat. I definitely have a baby belly this time around!! I had a chubby but relatively flat tummy before pregnancy and my boobs definitely stuck out further than my belly!!

trisha when do u find out?

Thanks!  I wish my ta-tas could always be this perky!  Maybe not this big, though...
