Hi all! I wish I could see a little belly bulge! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br>
This is preg #3 and I really expected to be a bit puffy around the middle by now. Anybody else not showing at all?<br><br>
With #2 I think I "popped" earlier than with #1 - but my memory is so bad.<br><br>
I had a U/S at 9w3d and the baby was measuring right about that size so I'm not too concerned, but...<br>
the Dr. couldn't hear the heartbeat with his doppler - that's why he did the U/S - but he said he could see the heart beating.... but I couldn't see the baby moving around - hopefully "he" was just "sleeping"....<br><br>
I'm just worried something is going to go wrong/be wrong with the baby. It's been difficult for me to adjust to this pregnancy and I really don't want to have to go through a loss or the pain of having to deal with any "abnormalities"--- It's just been so tough already changing all our family plans and oh, well, nobody's going to want to read my complaining... sorry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Lets just look forward to the second trimester, thank goodness my morning sickness has already vanished and I just really want to hear the OK - that everything is normal at our 20wk U/S...(ok, that's a few months away, but I need to look forward to things!)<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blahblah.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blah blah">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> After I started this thread I saw the thread about "I'm not showing yet" -- I guess I was just reading about so many other moms who are already wearing maternity clothes (at 8wks!!!) and feeling their baby move at 10wks and I was starting to wonder what my little bean was up too!<br>
This is preg #3 I should be a bit more laid back I guess.<br>
Nice to know I'm not the only one waiting to "pop"! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush">

I hear you about the concern. I think it's perfectly normal to worry about the health of our babies at some point or another. I had little fears with Ella and now with this one at times, but am grateful that they weren't persistent or all-consuming.<br><br>
I've got a belly, but I did before I was pregnant! I'm guessing that you're pretty slender or small-framed. I've actually worried a bit because I haven't gained much if any weight yet. Last pregnancy i'd put on 25 lbs by this point, I think! I should just be grateful!<br><br>
Hope you're adjusting and feeling better.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Thanks Susanne! I am feeling better - about everything!<br>
I'm on the slender side but I've been putting on a few pounds due to the stress of our cross-country move 2 months ago - but really just 5 lbs of so - I'm hoping I don't gain too much but I always just let my body dictate what I eat - Luckily it seems to come off after the baby. Ok, well it usually takes me about a year to lose all the baby fat but that's cause I don't like to "diet".<br><br>
Oh... I can't wait to feel this baby kicking! its always so comforting!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

Ha! Zonapelllucida! You're too funny! Thanks for sharing the belly pic! Maybe I'll get around to taking one someday - if I only felt there was much to see!<br>
Althought, last night I think I got a bit bigger - really just overnight, but then again maybe I just ate a lot for dinner! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
