momma87 - May 23

I'm almost 5 1/2 months pregnant and I'm not really showing. I'm 5'11'' and have a few extra pounds on me, but I'm not obese or anything. I did have a little belly on me before I got pregnant, but I thought I'd have a nice round baby hump by now. It worries me and makes me think that my baby isn't growing like normal. I had an ultrasound at 18 weeks, and the lady who did it said my baby was growing on schedule, but I don't know. My friend is also pregnant and she wasn't skinny by any means, but she looked very much pregnant at only 4 months. She's now 6 months along. I know everyone's pregnancy is different, but I was just wondering if anyone else is or was in my position.

Don't worry momma87! I didn't start showing until I was around 23 weeks......and my pregnancy/baby are completely normal! Trust me, your "bump" will come when it's suppose to come! Every woman is different.

momma87, I wouldn't worry too much about it, just like Jess1980 said, you bump will come. I drove my hubby crazy, since we found out, I kept asking, "Do I look pregnant yet". It took some time, but now I have a bit of a tummy, but not a nice round one yet, I'm still waiting for the beachball tummy at 6 months.

Hey momma87 - one thing you have to keep in mind is your height! You are super tall and probably have a long torso which gives your uterus plenty of space to expand internally before needing to expand outward. I on the other hand and super short - only 4'11 and was wearing maternity clothes at 12 weeks. I am now 16.3 weeks and am starting to get rounder. I also had a belly to start with so that helped matters quite a bit - it's rather embarrasing at times because I look more pg than I am! Be thankful it's taking you a while, the slower you grow the less chance you will have for stretch marks too! Good luck!

My doctor told me at my last appointment that judging from my body type, she didnt think I'd start to show until I was at least 6 months pregnant. I was surprised by this, because I a__sumed that being thin, I would show much sooner. everyone is different, like you said. You sound just fine to me. :) Soon enough you will be looking back trying to remember how it felt to not have a bump!

Hey momma87, I'm also very tall, 5'10" and before I got pregnant I was 184 pounds, I am now 20 weeks and just had my ultrasound yesterday, she said the baby is growing fine and right on schedule. I on the other hand still don't have a nice round belly, I think I still look fat.. I'm sure we will start showing soon..

Momma87, I bet you anything you are going to wake up one morning and be amazed that your belly popped all of a sudden. I find my body has changed in spurts and I have a lot of friends who suddenly popped out around 6 months and then grew and grew! All I can say is enjoy breathing comfortably, being able to sit without making grunting sounds and maybe even sleeping on your tummy!!!
