Jiggly Belly Amp Not Showing Much Through Clothes At 27 Weeks

Audre - December 9

Hi, I just hit 27 weeks in my first pregnancy and I am still not showing much through my clothes unless I wear clothes that are tight everywhere except the abdomen and loose in the abdomen. I am carrying low, and I am quite short and was of average weight, neither thin nor fat, pre-pregnancy. My "belly" is rounded, but I can still "suck in" my abdomen somewhat, and it seems a bit flabby, not taut, like my waistbands can pull it inward a little and push it around a bit. I am worried, because I thought by 27 weeks a pregnant belly is taut or firm, not so soft and pliable. I can't "pinch an inch" in that area or anything, but I can poke it pretty deep (although that does hurt slightly). I don't know anyone pregnant of average weight, everyone I have known who had a baby was so thin that they had no layer of fat before they got pregnant. Does it sound like something is wrong? Is it just fat, or my intestines, that is soft, or is this abnormal?

Have you been going to prenatal appts? Whenthey measure your uterus each appointment, is it on pace? You should ask you doctor if she is concerned. If they can find the heartbeat and are not concerned, don't worry about it.

EXACT SAME THING HERE, I AM SHORT, 5 FOOT 4 AND OF AVERAGE WEIGHT AND ALSO A FEW DAYS SHY OF 27 WEEKS. IF I DID NOT TELL U, U WOULD NEVER KNOW I AM PREGNANT IN A MILLION YEARS, I HAVE COMPLAINED TO EVERYONE ABOUT THIS INCLUDING THE D.R.'S OFFICE AND THEY TOLD ME SOMETIMES WITH FIRST PREGNANCIES U MAY NOT STICK OUT UNTIL WELL INTO THE 7TH. MONTH. THAT YOUR ORGANS ARE NOT USED TO STRETCHING. THEY TOLD ME NOT TO WORRY, AS LONG AS YOUR PRE NATAL APPT.S ARE GOING GOOD AND THERE IS A STEADY STONG HEART BEAT AND ALL THAT, U SHOULD BE FINE. I FEEL MY BABY GIRL MOVING ALL THE TIME, I JUST DONT HARDLY LOOK PREGNANT EITHER. SO..........NOT TO WORRY, GIVE IT ANOTHER MONTH, I BET U POP OUT ALL OF A SUDDEN.

Hi Audre, I was also not big at 6 months but after that it went very quick indeed. I'm 39 weeks now & 4 days and really big so it might just take some time now. At the end everyone will no you are pregnant.

During my first pregnancy, no one could tell I was pregnant, my neighbors were asking if I'd adopted when I came home with my baby. I'm pregnant for the second time, and I've been showing since about the 2nd month (impossible, but totally true). I look like I have a beach ball in my shirt. Everyone looks at me and says I look like I'm ready to pop any moment, but I still have months to go!
