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.

Yes I didn't start showing with my first baby till about 17 or so weeks! if your a first time mommy it takes a little longer to show cause your belly muscles are nice and tight so they hold everything in like a gurdle.
yes, this is very normal, im almost into my sixth month and am barely showing, sure i have the baby bump but thats about it. Doc said it was normal because im relativly little and its my first=] good luck!
First time moms don't show for a couple of months, sometimes 5 to 6 months. Don't compare yourself to us veteran moms whose abs aren't as tight. Congratulations
Yes it is perfectly normal. I am 16 weeks pregnant with my 3rd and I'm still not showing.
I didnt start showing until I was 23 weeks!! Now I'm 29 weeks and I think I'm huge! :)
Lots of women carry very differently- if you're still wearing prepregnancy clothes, get all the mileage out of them while you can!  With both my pregnancies, I didn't show until 6 months... around the 5th month I FELT like I was huge, but no one ever came up and asked "What are you having?  When are you due?  Is this your first?" until well into my 7th month, when I was blatantly pregnant.  It's exciting in a funny way when you start showing, but rock on while you can!
