I'm 8 Months Pregnant And Not Showing
I am two months late and took two HPT but both were negative. I am also not showing any signs of being pregnat like I should be at nine weeks. Why?
Not pregnant: Hot are very accurate and if you were pregnant, one would have shown positive. Stress is a common reason to miss several periods. I like that you are thinking of pregnancy because that is what I would do also. Please see your obgyn and get an exam and blood work and ultrasound as indicated ...Read more

I found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks, I am now 8 weeks as of today and I'm showing twice as much, and sick all the time. What do this mean?
I am 8 weeks and 5 days pregnant with every symptom in the book. This is my third. I'm not showing yet. Is this normal. I've gained 12 lbs already.?
Yes all that you describe is very normal. Every pregnancy is different. Though you are an experienced mom, there are plenty of symptoms to newly discover. The pregnant uterus does not rise out of the pelvis until the 12th week so I would not expect you to "show" yet. The 12 lbs. That you have gained are mostly water weight. A normal response to the hormones of early pregnancy. ...Read more

Variation: How soon into pregnancy you start to "show" varies greatly from one person to the next. Some women seem to pop several weeks into pregnancy while others still fit into their regular jeans at seven months pregnant. But most women begin to show at 3-6 months. So probably pretty soon. ...Read more

Everyone's different: This is determined by your body build, posture, your height, weight - a lot of things! As long as you are being checked on a regular basis, and your obstetrical provider is reassuring you about your baby's development, not to worry. Try as hard as you can not to compare yourself with other women in this - it's pointless, and it'll drive you crazy! Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Hard to believe: At "5 weeks" of pregnancy, you are just one week past your missed period. You have a 3 week-old embryo, which is about 1/5 inch long and weighs less than a gram. Your HCG urine pregnancy number is likely from 1000-10, 000 and Progesterone level around 15. You may have symptoms of breast tenderness and nausea but as for "showing". ..There's not much to "show." close friends may guess, though. ...Read more

3-5 weeks after sex: Common early pregnancy symptoms include some nausea (with or without vomiting), some fatigue (feeling less energetic), a sharper or stronger sense of smell, mild soreness and swelling of the breasts, and maybe some food aversions or cravings. These symptoms are due to quickly rising hormone levels. ...Read more

Varies a lot!: Showing varies by parity (how many babies you've already delivered), mom's health, nutrition of mom and baby, body habitus, genetics, athleticism, on and on. Generally at 12-18 weeks gestation. But this is by no means a hard and fast rule. You should have seen your OB before the 6th week to get a history, project an edc, assess high risk factors, start vitamins, an get testing out of the way. ...Read more
