Well you should get measured at every appt and that should tell you if ur belly & baby is growing at the right rate. so i would ask the doc.

I know what you mean... I don't feel like I'm big at all, and it doesn't help that my friends are saying the same thing, but then again, they are really jealous. :)
At my last appointment on the 26th of Feb when I was 30 weeks exactly, the doctor said that I was measuring at 29 weeks. As long as the doctor doesn't say that he/she is concerned, you're fine.

I just entered into my 30th week with my second baby and A LOT bigger than my sister in law who is due a month after me. This is her first baby and she just got out of her skinny clothes but still is too small for maternity. I was told by my doctor that first time moms don't show as much as vetran moms. I wouldn't worry about it. If the docs were concerned, they would let you know. And the funny thing is when strangers ask me how far a long I am and I tell them, they usually exclaim "Wow! You are so small for being that far along!" I doubt most of them have had babies! LOL

Don't worry about it too much is easier said than done. I'm due with my 3rd boy on May 15th and I only recently ( past 2 weeks) looked like I was "supposed" to look at this time in the pregnancy. It really had me nervous because with my other 2 boys I not only showed right away, but I had gained wieght like crazy. So far I've gained only 13lbs with this one. I was nervous myself, but my Doctor keeps reassuring me that the baby is healthy and that you will carry each child differently. All 3 for me have been TOTALLY different. As long as you're eating healthy, taking your pre-natal vitamins, and your doctor isn't concerned than feel lucky because your next child could make you utterly uncomfortable. :)

O wow, I was showing before i even knew i was preggy - ok i was very bloated but it never stopped and i am now huge..... Everyone says "so when are you due?" and I say begining of May they all say "wow that is a big baby, hey" well no she isn;t really she is right, I go for my scan on the 12 where they will measure and weigh her and see how big she will be on B - day..... Being huge is beautifull i love my big tummy, but my feet hate me....

Hey girl...Don't worry about it, if you get mesured every months and the OB is not concerned, then you are fine! I'm on my third and with all three I didn't really start poping out untill I was like 6 months. Even now I'm almost 32 weeks and when I tell people I'm that far along, they don't believe it. I'm tall and fairly slim to start with, and I just think that my babies have room to spread out instead of poking out as much.
Once again if the doctor had any worries he would do an ultrasound. For my second I mesured kind of smallso they did an ultrasound at 7 months to make sure there was enough fluid and everything was fine.
Also, eventhoughmy they were bothoverdue, the first one was only 5.8 and second barely reached the 6 pounds. So maybe you'll have a little baby too. Much easier to give birth to.:wink:
Good luck to you!

I wouldn't worry, you should actually consider yourself lucky that you haven't gain so much weight. I just turned 7 months and I look like I am due any day, I get that alot and it makes me mad. As long as your doctor says your okay, don't worry about it. The 9 month is when you will see a big difference. Take care and good luck!
