17 weeks pregnant & not showing
I'm 17 weeks pregnant & not showing AT ALL, only for the boobies that is taking on monsterous proportions, but for the rest I'm still wearing exactly what I was wearing before I fell pregnant (in fact a lost some weight & some pants are sitting better) I know that you "carry" smaller the first time, but everybody is commenting on the fact that I'm not showing and true to a first time mom I'm starting to feel worried if everything is fine. I've been for a scan at 16 weeks and it looks fine, although the baby was very quiet where at 11 weeks it was moving like crazy! Should I be worried? Is this normal? By the by, I've been diagnosed with very low iron last week at started on supplements. Thanks for hearing me out - maybe I'm just paranoid ...

If you had a scan a week ago and the baby was fine, then there is nothing to worry about.
