Im six months and not showing is thier something wrong?

Im six months and not showing  is thier something wrong?

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

Prenatal care?: Hard to know based on that question. Have you been receiving prenatal care with an Obstetrician? Blood testing? Ultrasounds? Is there an estimation of the baby's weight? Regular visits with your Obstetrician will give us the reassurance we need in this context. ...Read more

Variation: How soon into pregnancy you start to "show" varies greatly from one person to the next.

How come my ab muscles are not showing up after doing a lot of exercise?

How come my ab muscles are not showing up after doing a lot of exercise?

Tough question: Lower abdomen's a typical spot for women to gain fat, especially after 40. If you're depending on exercises alone for a visible six-pack, you're out of luck. Lose the fat by reducing calories as well as exercising. Developing abs means exercising all the abdominal muscle i.e. Upper & lower rectus muscles, obliques, transversis abdomenis. Look up target moves. Better to focus on total body health. ...Read more

What exactly does it mean when your gallbladder is not showing up on a hida scan?
