kehlioiuse, I have seen other preggo bellies this far along that didn't show much either. Actually, I deluded myself into thinking I wouldn't show until at least September before I got pregnant, but I'm showing now. As long as your midwife says your measuring ok, then don't worry about it.

I updated mine with the pictures we took this weekend.

kehlioiuse, with my first I did not show until well over 6 months and really only needed maturity clothes the last 2-3 months. My dd was born in mid November and i was at the fair (in September) (I was/am 4H leader) and I was just wearing Jeans a bit bigger than my before preg size (I was a 32 before and was wearing a 36 then) - SO the moral of the story is - don't worry

thanks for the words of encouragement. i know some people don't start showing until later...i just remember having already gained like 20 pounds by this time with ds and definately showing..since this is not child #1 it is sort of a shock...but keep encouraging me! so i don't totally freak out. thanks.

I haven't really felt like I've had anything decent to share, photo-wise, but I HAVE been keeping track.

Such awesome bumps in these photos!

I'm still not showing a whole lot (18.5w now), but I hear that's not so unusual for a first-timer.

The secretaries at work (mostly dudes at work but the secretaries) were teasing me the other day because I'm not showing yet! (20 weeks as of yesterday!) One even said, "My stomach is bigger than your BABY!"

I was at the midwife's yesterday and she said that because I'm so tall AND it's my first, I may not ever get really big. She said I'll probably get big enough that it'll be uncomfortable, but never as big as the more petite women do.

We did hear the heartbeat and lots of movement...so that was at least good. BUT...still no belly!

just as a side note that has little to do with anythign i would just like to say that i am not wearing a long sleeve shirt in those pictures because it is cold outside...i am wearing one because it is so ridiculously hot outside that my mother has the air conditioning set to freezing inside the house. i am just a bit bitter about waiting for fall..i would love to wear a light weight long sleep shirt all day long..but i probably wont do that until january or february.

kehliouise, it just amazes me how you are barely showing. Probably because of your extra long torso. You look great anyway!

My bump looks like some of the bigger ones and I am as far along as you (23 wks). Gorgeous round bellies some of us have! Yay!

As for the others who aren't showing much - enjoy the fact that your ab muscles aren't going to get too stretched out, and you probably won't have much trouble exercising them back to [near] flat again.

HA! Flat! Near flat! I am not showing much, but believe me a flat tummy is not going to be any easier to get to!

My ab muscles stretched out so much with my first that I had a permanent "tire". When I bent over or sat down there was ALWAYS a tire, no matter how many sits ups and how much exercise I did. Other friends of mine who have very very lean bodies didn't have the same issue. Some women can only "get rid of" that stretched out tire with reconstructive surgery. I have this strange notion that if the muscles don't get stretched out to high hell like an overstretched elastic, they'll regain some semblance of their original state more easily. This is what I've seen anyway. Of course, we're all different! :

P.S. I might add that I was a dancer for more than 25 yrs before we TTC bb#1, so I was shocked and dismayed that my body was so flabby looking after. Now I just accept it.

well i think i was showing more in previous pictures, but here is 22 weeks. as to not have streched out ab muscles, well i have those from pregnancy #1 with ds. i was huge then. i think they make me feel even less pregnant looking now because the belly i do have isn't tight like it was when pregnant with ds. it is a think layer or stored fat and then the baby. haha.

tyisrrs- thanks for saying i look great.

22 weeks 1
