yes it ok that you aren't showing yet. most likely, its partly due to being your 1st and partly due to your body shape. when i was pg with DS, i started to thicken out a bit around 18w but wasn't showing until the upper-20s. i didn't get a single stranger comment on my being pg until i was 28w. everyone shows in their own time.
Yes, I wouldn't worry. I didn't really start showing very much until about 2 weeks ago.
Don't worry, pretty soon you'll be getting tons of stupid comments and you'll wish people would be quiet!
I started the new school year at 21 weeks (I teach) and had many "Wait, what?!" responses when I talked about baby stuff. I thought I looked quite different but apparently tons of people had no idea. Even closer to 23/24 weeks I was just getting the "So..... i hear a rumor...." comments from people trying to figure out if I was or wasn't. Now it's hard to believe that was only 6 weeks ago because I think it's pretty obvious now, but honestly, in my fleece hoodie walking around town I don't think most people would confidently say I was PG. And I'm short and small, so go figure. I thought I would be huge by now but the belly is staying small-ish despite my completely adequate wieght gain.
You'll get there. Don't worry. Besides, enjoy the feeling of bending over while you can. You'll miss it. I promise!
don't worry! my doc said I probably wouldn't show til 26 weeks.
I thought I was huge at 18 weeks but now I look at the pics and see how people that don't know me would think I was just didn't have a 6pk anymore.
at 25 wks I am confident that I look pregnant....but then again yesterday a lady didn't believe my mom that I was so....
in the end I'm measuring right on so I don;t care what people think!!!
