27 weeks & barely looking pregnant...is this normal?
I'm pregnant with my first. I'm 27 weeks and still just barely showing. Strangers can't tell at all that I'm pregnant. I belong to a lot of pregnancy boards, and almost everyone posting pics who are as far along as I am look more obviously pregnant than I do. Now, I do definitely have a bit of a bump, especially compared to the beginning of my pregnancy, but it's just not an obvious bump wearing clothes I guess. I'm not terribly tall (I'm 5'4"), but maybe I've got a longer torso for my height or something. Doc did not seem concerned, I have gained 11 lb. from my pre-preg. weight and at 26 weeks, my fundal height was 25 cm, and he said +/- up to 2 cm from the week was normal.
Anyone else take so long to show with their first? Is this normal? It just seems weird to get so far along and people still don't notice! You can tell, I guess, if I'm in my underwear or wearing a sports bra with a bare midriff, but that's about it. I thought I would surely be showing quickly. My pre-pregnancy weight was low-normal for my height (117 lb.), I've got a small frame size, I'm not terribly tall. It just seems strange.
