This is my third baby...I've only gained 18lbs (gained 60 with my first two) and don't look like I've gained at all...my tummy is so small for 31 weeks :/ Is it because it's my third? What the heck is going on?

Im 24 weeks, with my 4th baby and I feel like I don't look pregnant at all. With my first three kids I was showing around 19 weeks quite obviously. Now, when I lay down my belly goes completely flat.



I'm assuming it's normal. Your muscles are all stretched out so baby probably sits lower and further back that it did with earlier pregnancies.

Baby is probably just sitting further back. My belly looked different with both my pregnancies.

You don't look small to me, you look fine. And I'm sure the amount of weight you've gained so far is perfectly fine too. 60 pounds is a little excessive, that's how much I gained with DS and I'm hoping to keep it way under that this time.

You don't look small to me, and considering how you're only supposed to gain 25-30 pounds when you're full term, and the last 4 weeks you gain a pound a week...I'd say you're right on track.

I don't think you look small at all, I looked like that closer to 34-35 weeks with my third and I was measuring almost 10 weeks ahead. Its probably just because you've gained less weight or it's baby's position or maybe you're just carying in your back this time

Thanks ladies. This is the weirdest pregnancy yet. I won't complain though, about how easy it will be to lose this weight after!

You look perfectly normal IMO too. I'm 27 weeks and have gained 12lbs so I'm right on par with you.

It seems normal, my first you didn't know I was pregnant until I was 7ish months pregnant, the next two, I was showing at 12-17 weeks, now I'm pregnant with our 4th and well when I lay down my belly goes flat, the only reason I look pregnant when I'm upright is because my belly muscles and 8 years of being lazy has caused belly fat. But I lay down and it is flat. I'm 21 weeks along too. So strange to me, but I also feel we are having a boy so maybe that is what makes the difference, I don't know. My first was a boy, then 2 girls.
