I was visiting my grandmother yesterday, and she had a friend over.  My gran mentioned that I was pregnant, her friend congratulated me and asked how far along I was.  I told her 17 weeks, and she looked shocked and said, "Well, you don't look pregnant AT ALL!"

I didn't think it was that unusual not to have much of a bump at this stage, and I am a big girl to start with, so I'm not surprised that I am not showing.  But it got me curious.  Anyone want to share a "bump pic"?  I'll go take one of my lame-o non-bump, if someone else will join me.  original.gif

I'm 17 weeks also and embarrassed at how big I am already. It is my eighth pregnancy though. I'll try take a photo but look about six months at least.  I was 60kg before this pregnancy and hid the scales once I hit 65 about a month ago!!

They recently redesigned the site and it took me a while to find the upload button. It's a green button in the centre of the top bar.

Wow, you ladies all look amazing!  And so pregnant!  Well, you have confirmed that my bump is indeed pretty lame.  Lol.  

This is from today - 18w1d.  And I was really pushing it out!  I know I look different to how I normally do, and there is definitely a hard lump there, but it doesn't stick out much.

Andy, your bump is obvious in the lower part; it's your pants elastic that's making it less round. If you hike them up higher, bump will look bumpier!

For the record, mine looks like Spring Chickadee's, I just don't have any photos. original.gif

Lol.  Actually, my pants are sitting below the bump.  The indent isn't from my pants - I have a weird double bump, I think it is baby on the bottom, fat roll on the top.  unsure.gif How embarassing.

Glad i'm not the only one without an obvious bump at 17w6days. I was starting to worry a tad as i'm very slim  and just looks like i've had a big lunch.

I am nearly 20 weeks and while I think I have a huge bump, to everyone else its not so obvious.  I am however convinced that I am growing backwards if that makes sense.... I am not a big build and have put on about 5.5kg to date.  My placenta is at the front so I am wondering if this is making me appear smaller than I am as when I lay flat, there is definitely a big bump there.  Im afraid I have no pics yet, not really getting into the photo taking yet as I just feel that I look like Ive eaten too much cake but I LOVE seeing everyone elses bumps.  Its a gorgeous thing.
