Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I didnt really start showing until around 25ish weeks.I'm 30 weeks now,and I STILL have a tiny baby bump!if youre eating right and doing whatever you can,then don't worry. everyone is different and if your doctor tells you everything is going as planned at your check ups,then you're fine!I'm just concidering myself lucky that I wont have a whole lot of baby weight to lose after!

I am 18 weeks and as of my last doctor's visit I had not gained any weight either. The only people who even notice a change is my close family and friends. My doctor told me its normal and that I would gain weight eventually. I also can not eat huge meals because it  makes me feel very bloated and just stuffed. I munch on smaller meals and snacks so that I can try to get most of my nutrients into my body.

Every woman is different.  I didn't start showing until around 24 weeks.

Dnt feel bad.. I have a friend who is As many months as I am.. (6months) and I have a huge belly bump and I swear she doesnt even look pregnant... at 24 weeks. Every womans body is different, i've learned. Yur baby should be healthy and well. So dont stress over it. It'll be better for you in the long run. Less weight to lose. Unlike me who is gaining Wayyyy too muchh weight, Wayyyy too fast! =/
