Not showing at 20 weeks

Hey guys just lookinf for a little reassurance. I know every woman is different but I am tired of looking fat!!! instead of pregnant. I am exactly 20 weeks today, and I go for an ultrasound tommorow to find out what it is and so measurements of the baby an be taken. I went two weeks ago at 18 weeks and the baby is groiwng like it should and the little heartbeat was right on target but I am ready to start showing!! I just look like I ahve gotten really fat, so humor me and tell me that I should start showing soon. I am 5'4 and was about 165 punds when i got pregnant so i was little on the chunky side to begin with. I can feel the quickening sensations every now and then so it gives me a little reassurance that everything is going ok. Thanks

At 18 weeks I definitely just looked fat.  At 20 weeks I only looked pg when I wore one certain maternity shirt.  Then around 22 weeks it started to come forward and actually look like a pg belly.  You're probably getting pretty close to popping forward.  Hang in there  :-)

My best friend is a little on the chunky side and she didn't start really showing until about a month before her daughter was born.  A big part of that though was not only her extra pre-pregnancy weight but her hormone induced breasts.  They poked out much further than her belly, so you couldn't see anything but huge boobs coming your way!

Women who are a little heavier it might not be noticable as a slender woman. You know your pregnant!
I only started to show at about 6 months!

I wore jeans to my 20 week u/s with both of my babies.  I am not a big gal & short so there is not much room, babies sit differently.  Have a tall friend who got a huge belly by 3 months looked like she was about 8- it was weird, she popped then didn't get much bigger till the very end, did it with both babies.  You would have thought it would be the other way around.  My babies were both large, hers were about 7 lbs, mine 9 & 10.  I did n't look prengnant till about 6 & 1/2 months with my first one, even then I didn't get too big right away, then I exploded.  At 20 weeks some gals will feel kicks, some won't, my first baby was a kicker, second one just rolled sometimes- never really kicked.  It's all personality.  I think as long as you are feeling movement, you are good.  Congrats!  The belly will be here before you know it, so finish any bending you want now.
