Post here if your belly isn't growing yet :p

LOL! Ok, so, yeah... I want the mama's who don't have a belly to join me in showing off our normal tummies haha!

I didn't start showing until WAY late with DS and it looks like it's going to be the same with this one. I've still taken a pretty much weekly shot and tried to stay in the same clothes. Any changes you do see are just bloat or the fact I held the camera closer to the mirror, it comes and goes daily lol!

I don't have pics but I am right with you! I have a belly all right but it is squishy squishy fat and bloat. Can you feel any hardening of yours yet?

I posted on the weekly belly pictures thread, but I don't have much of a belly either! I can feel how hard my stomach is above my pelvis and my regular pants are uncomfortable, so I know something is happening there. You just can't see it!

I am 17 weeks today. I wore a prepregnancy skirt and top to work today and got lots of comments about how small I am and how you can't see any belly.

Yeah, thanks. I'm already feeling sort of concerned about the lack of belly and the lack of weight gain, so thanks for pointing it out. :/

I keep telling myself that I'm growing at my own pace and that everything is ok, but the ladies at work are giving me a complex.

Bumping this for the ladies who still aren't showing! I need to update my little progression chart, but it pretty much all still looks the same lol!

Majka you look about the same build as me. Can you feel any firming when you palpate your lower abdomen? I can feel firmness that wasn't there before but it's not enough to show up as a bump yet. I'm hoping soon. I want a bump by my 20 week ultrasound dangit!

nope, I think my uterus is tilted backwards or something. I'm tall and have wide hips and the baby is just hiding all up in my torso lol

eep, well, looks like over the weekend I started creeping out of the "not showing anymore" category... though only barely lol!

This is 7 weeks(when I wasn't showing at all and just found out I was pregnant) and then 19 weeks(today's shot).
I got a new phone, so the images aren't quite the same and I think the new phone zooms in more(also I'm not so happy that the camera isn't as good of quality Sad )

I'm dying to ask you ladies with belly shots, are you sucking in what you can suck in when you take the pictures? Cause if I didn't suck in, my fat would make me look pregnant lol! But if I suck in as much as I can, you can see a tiny bit of roundedness finally. My entire belly is firm, not just where the uterus is. But I can also push it in so it's not THAT firm.

not as much as I possibly can(that would require me not to breathe Blum 3 lol!), but I tighten my stomach muscles to make sure I'm not pushing it out. If I completely relax my stomach muscles I look way more pregnant, but before I ever got pregnant if I relaxed them I looked very pregnant... so yeah.

Are you taking pictures? Be taking pictures!

I still don't feel like I'm showing any, even though according to the pictures I'm starting to pop a little. My clothes all still feel the same, my pants still aren't tight.

Nope. I just go in the mirror and suck in and see if anything's popping out yet and nope. Don't really want to take a picture of nothing lol.

So crazy how our bodies all act so differently. I think I had a growth spurt over the weekend. My boss said I went from just looking pregnant to looking like I was ready to drop lol Hoping he was exaggerating a little lol

Ladies! It's been a month, how are we doing?

I still don't look pregnant at all, just fat! People keep telling me I haven't started showing yet too :mad:

Took this week's picture and I swear it has gotten smaller again! So frustrating!

I've been told by people that they can tell but really I only have a little baby showing. Most of my belly is the fat and bloat Sad

well I am FINALLY starting to show in my normal clothes. I did finally buy some maternity clothes to help myself feel better. The full panel front and the cinched shirts makes me actually show, though I still have only a small bump for 31.5w. That said, I can still fit in to most of my pre-preg clothes, the shirts just ride up a little in the front.

I still haven't had anyone ask if I'm pregnant and when I have told a few people they were surprised I was at all. So it is still the same old stuff.

I went through it with DS up until the end. I remember being in the dollar tree and someone asking me how far along I was and I was like 37 weeks and they were like :eek: you look just 6 months!

Oh and I finally told my coworkers about 2 weeks ago and they were shocked, said I wasn't showing at all and were shocked I was so far along. But today one of them said I was finally starting to get that little bump.
