Yes! I definitely have lots of people noticing now. Lots of hands that touch my belly too. Which I don't mind. Fortunately. I must give off a "touch my belly" vibe! Haha

Yea I mean I'm sure a big part of it is you started off slender but then I've also heard about some women who don't show that much even full term because they hold their baby closer to their back. Not this girl! dizzy.gif

 

That's ok though, I have to say I kind of like that I look pregnant now. I am trying to appreciate being "cute pregnant" before I look like a boat and cute's gone out the window.

i think the reason its been takin me so long to show is the long back and deep set hips, gives baby lots of space to hide in.. but i want to look preg cus altho i look like a normalish size 8 im normally a size 4-6 and i feel like i just look fat now!! plus i think cute tummys are amazing.. my cousin who ive seen a lot over the last few days says she carried similarly to me, and barely showed properly until 7 or 8 months.. even then she didnt get massive!!

It's fun to see you ladies who are taking awhile to show, I was the same way my first pregnancy! I didn't even tell folks at work (except my boss) I was pregnant until 20 weeks, and they were just barely starting to suspect something then, probably moreso because of body changes elsewhere (boobs, face, etc.) then my belly smile.gif

20 weeks today, 3rd baby. I am starting to get 'thicker', but don't have a rounded bump yet, thanks to my very indented belly button. I have this strange mind/body discordant feeling going on where I feel a lot bigger inside than I look from the outside.

I also really love looking at all the belly's, and it's amazing how different our bodies are and how everyone shows at different times. I am 20 weeks and 2 days and definitely showing and getting noticed by strangers and asked when I'm due. I'm starting to get nervous about having so far to go and being this big, if sleep is challenging now what will it be like when I'm double the size? yikes. It does feel more real though with a big belly.

its insane isnt it how much more some people show then others.. i went on a youtube video marathon (skipping foreward to the bellys) and i couldnt find one 21 weeker smaller then me.. i found 1 or 2 around the same size, but everyone by now seems to have at least something.. maybe people dont post pics of there bellys so much when they dont show?

love the belly moriah, and berry are you having a girl or a boy? your tummys similar to mine :)

Everybody handles pregnancy so differently! Even the same body in different pregnancies! I know women who have stronger ab muscles tend to show later as well, especially when tall.  Just for fun, here is my 18 week photo from my first pregnancy:

And my 18 week from this pregnancy: (DH decided to take video and one still frame photo, so I was talking when he took the picture, so that's why I'm making a weird face, eyesroll.gif):

I have a lower rounder, bigger, belly this time compared with last.  I am also gaining a ton of weight in my butt and thighs, which didn't happen until much later with my first...although I think I've gained the same amount each time at this point.  After 18w my belly seemed to double in size every week for a month, so I caught up really quick, and by 39 weeks I was busting at the seams!

I didn't deliver until almost 41 weeks and gained another 5 pounds in that two weeks, and I think half of that was the baby!  It's really hard to predict how our bodies are going to grow!

post #239 of 725

Wow mamas!  We are half way (today for me officially)!  It's so fun to see those bellies grow and how each body and pregnancy is different.  You all look so cute!  I will try to get a picture tomorrow.
