Every person is different my mom didn't start showing with me until the last 3 months. When she went into labor they thought she was only 3 to 4 months pregnant

I'm also 14 weeks & was also worried because I'm not really showing. I thought my babies weren't gaining any weight. When I asked my doctor he also said it varies & not to be too concerned with weight gain, its still early. I thought since I'm very petite I should be showing sooner with twins.

My best friend was five feet tall and weighed 99 pounds. When she got pregnant we expected to have to put her in a wheelchair. As it happened she did not have to wear maternity clothes until the seventh month. I never could figure out where she hid that baby. I was five feet five and 115 pounds. When I got pregnant I popped out almost immediately. By five months people would smile at me and say, "Any day now."

You get the idea.

Oh, I remember wanting to show so bad with my first pregnancy.  I checked every day.  It too a really long time.   I'd been a work out hound back then and had tight tummy muscles.  Finally, it popped and then there was no stopping things.  I went from no one really noticing I was pregnant to looking like I was about to deliver any minute.  I actually wore maternity pants before i needed them by pinning them.  

This was really funny to me when I showed at about 8 weeks with my second child.   By then the novelty of wanting to show had worn way off and those maternity clothes were staring me in the eye as unwanted guests for the next several months.

Be patient.  You'll show and it will be wonderful!!  Enoy wearing your 'normal' clothes while you can.  peace and luck to you.
