I started showing really early with this pregnancy (it was obvious by 10 weeks) and I was preparing myself to be huge this time.

I'm right there with you! I was showing at 10 weeks too and then slowed down a lot. I'm pretty sure I'm smaller this time around then with my first, but then I realize I'm starting this pregnancy out 15 lbs lighter too. So far I've gained 14lbs so I'm still 1 lb under what I was when I got pregnant with DS1.

I'm sure theres nothing to worry about. This pregnancy has definitely showed me that every pregnancy IS different and you can carry the babies differently.

I worried about this in my first pragnancy, and al ittle bit in this pregnancy..it's like we hit a moment where our bellies get "stuck" lol..:) for me it was around my 12 weeks..i looked the same from my 8 weeks to like 16 weeks. and all of the sudden i started popping.. I guess it's all different, every woman and every baby...

With my first, i brought my concerns to my doc by my fifth month, i thought i was really small..but for my 7 month visit i was HUGE where the doc even pointed out " and you were worried you weren't getting big" I guess it could be because we see and measure ourselfves everyd ay..we don't see the change??

I think seeing our babies on the ultrasound, it's a relive because even if it doesn't look like it...they are growing just fine in there..:)

Cheyenne don't worry about the weight gain. My mom gained 9 lbs total with my brother who was 7 lbs 6 oz!! and she looked small too. If the baby is growing that's all that matters. :-) The baby puts weight on in the end anyway. Right now the babies are only a little bigger than a pound.
