Still not showing

This is my first, so I understand I'm not going to show as quickly as someone who has been pregnant before, but I'll be 17 weeks on friday and still nothing! I admit I have a tiny bump, but I really thought I would be full on bumpin it by now! Anybody else not showing? Or if this isn't your first rodeo when did you begin to show with you first child?

With my first I was about 6months a long before I really started looking preggers. I'm tall and a little bigger boned...and big chested so it took a while for me to not feel fat and feel pregnant.

Give it a little more time...you'll get your baby bump soon =)

That makes me feel much better! I am taller also, about 5'8-5'9 so maybe height has something to do with it?

I started showing by like 9 weeks, but this is my second. With my first, I had a small bump, totally not noticeable though with a shirt on! But it did finally pop out sometime between 22 and 24 weeks. Your's will pop in no time!!!

With my first I was almost six months before I started showing, so I think that is totally normal.

I'm 14 weeks with my second and not showing. I think I was 20 weeks or so the first time.

I don't remember when I really started showing with my first, but I know it definitely wasn't as early as I am with this one (my second)!!! By about 10 weeks you could tell I was pregnant this time around. I don't think it happened the first time until quite a bit later, though. Also, you body size has a lot to do with when you show. And not just your weight. If you have a long torso, it may take longer to show because the uterus can sort of expand upwards first before it has to start going out.
But trust me, once you start to "bump out", you'll look in the mirror one day and go "Holy cow! I'm pregnant!" LOL

This is my first and I am 16 weeks and I definitely do not look pregnant at all. I am with you I probably won't pop until right before my sisters wedding and then I won't be able to fit into the brides maid dress. Lol

Thanks for your replies ladies! You all definitely put my mind at ease. I guess I just expected to be somewhat showing by now. Just watch, I'll probably be the first one complaining about what a house I am once I do start to pop!
