Why is my pregnant belly not showing
As long as your OB says your pregnancy is on track, there's no need to worry if you're not showing yet in your second trimester. (At your appointment, your doctor feels the size of your uterus—it'll be about one and a half inches below your belly button by the end of the month.)
Which part of the tummy is the baby
Uterus (also called the womb): The uterus is a hollow, pear-shaped organ located in a woman's lower abdomen, between the bladder and the rectum, that sheds its lining each month during menstruation. When a fertilized egg (ovum) becomes implanted in the uterus, the baby develops there.
Do you start showing at 8 weeks
Your body at week 8 of pregnancy
At week 8, you're still not showing yet. Most first-time pregnancies don't show until around week 12. If you've had previous pregnancies you may show earlier as a result of stretching of the muscles in your uterus and belly. Until then, enjoy your svelte figure.
Why is my belly so big at 5 weeks pregnant
Bloating. At five weeks pregnant your belly may be looking and feeling a little bloated. Pregnancy hormones are probably responsible, and this symptom may be accompanied by burping and passing wind, too.
Why is my belly so big at 6 weeks pregnant
Although your 6 week embryo is still well down in your pelvis, some women, especially those who've been pregnant before, seem to show much earlier. General abdominal distention is usually the cause. Nausea, increased sensitivity to smells, tiredness and feeling low on energy are all common 6 weeks pregnant symptoms.
Is it OK to not be showing at 20 weeks
Generally, a hidden baby bump before 20 weeks isn't out of the ordinary. People start showing at different times, and showing later doesn't usually imply anything is wrong. By 20 weeks, you'll probably start having more frequent visits with your healthcare provider.

How big should you be at 20 weeks
At around 20 weeks of pregnancy, the top of the uterus reaches the navel, and your fundal height would be about 7 to 8.5 inches (18 to 22 centimeters). Here's a fun fact about the fundal height measurement: Your fundal height in centimeters is roughly equal to the number of weeks you are pregnant!
How do you detect a cryptic pregnancy
Women with a cryptic pregnancy are unaware that they are pregnant. They may only realize they are pregnant during the last few weeks of pregnancy or when they give birth.
Often, women with a cryptic pregnancy do not experience typical symptoms of pregnancy, such as:
- missed periods.
- abdominal swelling.
Why is my stomach so small at 7 months pregnant
Your uterus will tend to grow upwards rather than push outwards. Result: your belly will look smaller. If you're a shorter woman, there's a smaller space between your hip and your lowest rib. That means less room for the baby to grow upwards, so your uterus will push outwards instead.
What to expect when you are 4 months pregnant
