Do you still have your pregnancy symptoms? My stomach got hard around 5 or 6 weeks. Unfortunately I had a miscarriage at week 13 and my stomach immediately went soft and I lost all pregnancy symptoms. But every body is different, if you're really concerned make an appt with your doctor just to check things out. Better safe than sorry!
I was wondering the same thing...well kind of...my stomach is hard, but not hard hard...when I'm standing my stomach looks about 5 months, but when I lie down it's completely flat...when should it start staying a ball???
Dsybahena: I don't think anything is wrong with your stomach being soft, it'll get harder as the months go by. =D
that depends on several factors....did you start the pregnancy overweight or were you skinny? Is this your first or a subsequent pregnancy? I've always had a spare tire or two going into pregnancies so my tummy had the squishiness until very late. I've also heard that you show sooner with subsequent pregnancies. Also, I'm sure that if you were carrying mutiples it would make a difference as well.
