17w,2d & my belly is not super obvious is that normal ?

This its my first baby and my morning sickness had subsided now I'm just hungry all the time i get headaches more times than before but my stomach is sitting low and it pokes out a little.. Ima small girl already but i feel like I'm doing something wrong shouldn't u be bigger by now ? Everyone that sees me asks how far along I Am and when i answer them they all respond the same in shock and then say but your so small.. Ugh that kills me because i don't want to hurt my baby.. Help ...anyone

u can go on Face Book and check out the babygaga and look at the pregnancy models for week 17 and you can compare bellies...i do it, and ive noticed im actually a lot bigger than most who are at 26 weeks :P

It's beacause your small already,I'm a week away from due date and the cashier @ the supermarket said she didn't even realise I was pregnant!Yeh sure its annoying but on the plus side at least you don't have to worry about shedding baby weight afterwards....you'll be a yummy mummy!the best is afterwards when people say they can't believe you had a baby because after a baby you really need that confidence bak n your more or less half way there.you get me or am I just babbling....?
