Red face Looking Pregnant

I'm 17 weeks and have been growing fairly steadily for most of my pregnancy. All of a 'sudden', I look down and my belly has really POOFED out. I'm actually quite intrigued with it; I can hardly stop looking down! It's like, "Where did that come from??" I swear - within this past week my belly has really grown SO much; it's bizarre!

Has anyone else experienced this sort of 'sudden' growth?

It seemed like the minute I told everyone I was pregnant, I actually popped out. It's weird how it happens sometimes, but it does.

I am 15 weeks and am still waiting to pop out! I can't wait to have a little belly instead of just feeling fat. This is my first. Some people say I wont show until 6 months. Is this true? I am tall and medium build so maybe that is why this is taking longer.

I am 2 months preg. with our first baby and let me tell you that my flat belly has REALLY bulged out. I have an ultrasound on Thurs. and wouldn't be surprised if there are twins it there!

16-17 weeks was when I really started to pop out too. It seemed as soon as I started to feel the baby move I got huge. It was like it was stretching out and needed some more room in there. Now I swear I look 7-8months pg. I'm only 5 1/2. I thought it was twins too at first, nope. I just have a differently shaped uterus.

I popped out with number 2 at 23 weeeks (a few weeks ago) I was amazed, one day I had a slight bulge below my belly button and the next it had filled my abdomen and above my belly button, my mom even noticed. I think Shannon was on the right track in that us taller girls show later. I'm almost 5'7" and have a long torso.
