17 weeks and not showing?

I'm currently 17 weeks pregnant and nobody can tell I'm pregnant. I took a pic of my belly at 11 weeks and at 17 weeks and they are the same. Is this normal?

If it's your first some people take longer to show. With my first I didn't pop out until almost 30 weeks. Don't stress on it! :)

Some women can go their whole pregnancy And not show at all. Baby just stays in the back. Doesn't mean anything is wrong though. (:

I didn't show until I was around 32 weeks with my first but with my second I've been showing since 8 weeks.your body takes longer to adjust to your first pregnancy and your muscles take longer to stretch. Don't freak out you'll be showing before you know it. Enjoy the time you're small while you can. As soon as you're showing you'll find it harder to be comfortable

That's exactly how I was.. I was getting very sad about it lol then all of a sudden my belly literally just popped out of nowhere at 18 weeks. I am 21 weeks now and it keeps growing nore big every day.

Aw hehe. Don't worry I am 32 weeks have only gained six pounds total. I just started showing about two weeks ago. I look like I am maybe 4 months. Don't stress it, some women have larger hips where the baby hides. You probly won't show until 30 something weeks.

Unless you are one of those girls that have some condition to where u never even grow a stomach. Don't worry. I am very skinny and I didn't start showing till I was 20 something weeks . now I'm 38 weeks and ppl are asking if I'm having twins because I'm enormous. !!! Take advantage. It won't last long
