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.

It's different for everyone. I looked pregnant at 4 months but my good friend took a little longer. It will happen. It's like one day you will fit in your pants and the next you can't. :)
It depends on many factors...perhaps you have great stomach muscles?  I didn't show with my first until about 5 1/2 mths.  With my other pregnancies it was much earlier.I'm sure that you will be showing soon and can buy some maternity clothes at last.  Hope you have a healthy,happy pregnancy!
I was like that too. I didn't really start showing until 20 weeks, then I started growing non-stop. Just wait, It will come! If you want to show more, try buying maternity clothing, they tend to show off the belly more and make it more noticable.
