How big is your bump?

So this is my 3rd pregnancy. I thought I would start showing pretty quickly this time around, but my bump is still pretty small. It's really strange because last time I was pregnant(my 2nd time around) I started showing almost immediately! By the time I was 14 weeks I felt like I couldn't fit into anything and I had to wear my bella band with everything or wear maternity. People could tell I was showing. This time I can still fit into most of my regular clothes and I will be 14 weeks on Wednesday. I don't think anyone could tell I was pregnant if I didn't tell them. Anyone else ever have this experience? Do you think it just depends on how the baby implants in your uterus? I swear I didn't eat more last go around. I was just simply bigger.

Right now my bump is all leftovers from Rowan lol This is my third also. Its not fair I didnt have enough time to lose all my baby weight ): But I started showing with him around 10 weeks. Im a curvy girl so that with the extra baby weight I think I'll be waiting a while for a real bump!

Mine's pretty big now. I'm only 5 ft tall and am still carrying weight from the other two. So I feel huge, but I haven't had any comments yet, so maybe it's all in my head.

I'm definatly feeling a lot larger then I did with DD at this point, but it's not that obvious yet. My post baby tummy hides whatever bump would be there if I was at a "perfect" weight.

I do think that where the baby implants in your uterus has a huge effect on how your bump looks. I've had friends and family who've looked totally different one pregnancy to the next.

I popped with my 2nd right away too. This one seems to be taking a little longer. I'll be 12 weeks tomorrow, and I just look fat Sad It's just annoying enough to make my pants not fit right! Wishing I would start to look pregnant soon!!!

I'm in the same boat as you and this is also number 3 for me. I was expecting a bump by now for sure. With #2 I was up like 7 lbs by now!

I am big and even more so at night, I felt like a moose last night. I suppose it doesn't help that I had put on some of the weight I had lost prior to getting pregnant. But I felt so icky I was reading about how often twins show up when the first ultrasound only detects one...LOL

I feel like a blimp. And it drives me crazy becaues this baby is only 3in long... so it's gotta be all fat and bloat.

I'm going to a family wedding this weekend. I've decidede to wear a maternity dress. I'd rather wear a maternity dress that's too big than a regular dress that i just look fat in. I'm worried about belly touching. I'm just not comfortable with it because it's not like there's a purpose.... they're not going to feel a kick or anything. So it's just like they're touching fat.

I have a teeny bump and as this is my 3rd pregnancy I am getting asked A LOT about the lack of a bump. I actually asked my doctor about it the other day and she said it was because my uterus is still low and behind my pelvic bone. Once it moves up she said I'll pop. So I am just waiting for that now.

Interesting!
