I'm 18 weeks today and I feel pregnant but I do not look pregnant no-one can tell i'm pregnant and if I tell them i'm pregnant their like *no way* my doctor says everything is fine and the baby looks good and i'm a tiny person so I assumed I would be showing by now since I've hade 2 kids in the past because I'm gaining the weight but theres no belly yet shouldn't the baby be running out of room soon which would make me start showing

I would happily swap places with you :) I hate being pregnant, I hate looking pregnant ect... I know its completely worth it but its the worst 9 months of my life lol

Lol. Don't worry Shyann...I'm sure you'll 'pop' soon. One morning you might wake up and look 6 months pregnant...that's what happened to some of my friends out of the blue. I found I've looked pregnant since the 8 weeks, but I honestly haven't changed very much along the way. I think most of it has been bloating and now at 24 weeks, what was once just air and water has turned into baby. When I look at the other pictures of pregnant bellies at 24 weeks online, I'd say I'm small in comparison, but of course, to me, I still feel huge!

I'm in the same boat, just a week and a day or two behind you. This is my third pregnancy, and I was HUGE with baby #1 (gained 66 lbs!) but I haven't gained any weight and I sure don't look pregnant. I'm totally cool with it. I hate looking pregnant, and this is nice after a totally miserable pregnancy before :)

I am 24 weeks & am still waiting to "pop!" I am tall & fairly slender so I thought I would show early for sure, but that is definitely not the case! If I wear something that is tight fitting (which I do not wear out in public:)) then you can tell that I am pg., but otherwise, I just look the same. I am also measuring just fine, 20 week scan looked great, I feel him move all of the time, but I just can't seem to get a "belly!" I guess we should be thankful! :)

You should be thankful! I haven't gained weight but my belly is all baby! It's very cute but maternity clothes are expensive and when I was about 3 1/2 I had to start wearing them but those don't even fit anymore! So now I look a little smaller because I've been buying them 1 size bigger and they are kind of big but I don't really care because I don't want to have to buy more when I get further along but I'm sure I will! But good luck and you should be very thankful!
