I will 4 months ( 16 weeks ) on tuesday and am not showing at all, and havent put on any weight either but the baby is growing well. Sometimes woman carry more towards the back than the front of the tummy so there is nothing wrong if you are not showing yet.

Thanks for the response.

I have always maintained a good and healthy eating regime. I saw my doc last night. All is well. My doc assured me not to worry. I do feel kicks and bumps..I was really hoping that I will show..

Depends on your build / if you were pregnant before
etc - when have you had your last dr app?

If unsure and you do not have the funds to see a Dr
go to your clinic

In the mean time eat propperly - look for any signs of bleeding and do a home pregnancy test - if the fetus died - it would most probably ended in an miscarrage
and that you would know unless it was right in the biggining. So do a test in the mean time and get an appointment to check it out as you will worry about this until you know for sure - though i dont think anything is wrong.

Hope for the best!!!

I am almost 10weeks and look if I am 6months.

So I think it can differ from person to person, but just to be safe go to your doc.

good luck!

You were supposed to be showimg by now, i' m only 14 weeks but now my tummy is really showing that i' m pregnant.

Please go and check if your baby is growing well , are you eating enough or what?
