I had NO hint of a bump until after 20 weeks! I'm only now getting noticeably pregnant at 26 weeks (or at least I think so... I think I can still be mistaken for just being fat!). I can actually still fit in my pre-preg clothes, I just feel like I need the extra length of mat. tops and of course the comfort of the mat pants!
Bumps come in all shapes and sizes, and yours is beautiful and perfect, no matter how big or small it may be =)
Looks pretty normal to me. 15 weeks is still early and baby is still very small. With my first child, I didn't start showing enough for anyone other than myself to notice until after 20 weeks. Even then it was only slightly rounded and people really only noticed if they were looking for it. I started seeing slight differences in my belly at about 16 weeks, but only because I knew my body so well. No one else could see it even when I tried pointing it out.
This time around I started showing much sooner and I've gotten much bigger than the 1st time. At 15-16 weeks I thought I was HUGE but looking back at pics from that point still shows a fairly small bump. Even now, it looks bigger in the mirror than on camera. I guess I just have a distorted image of myself or something :P My avatar pic is me at 20 weeks this pregnancy. With my first child I didn't get that big until like 30+ weeks and I was super tiny back then (underweight in fact). Then I got huge at the very end. You look perfectly healthy and normal to me. Good luck
you look like you were pretty thin to begin with. I had a bigger bump than you at 15w but my body type is a little bit more curvy than average. Also, my sister was about the size of your 15w bump until she was 21w along ( you can see my bump at 18w in my avatar) but at about 7 or 8 months along she popped out, but still with a pretty small bump and it barely grew until her baby was born- and he was 8.5lbs! That's not a tiny baby, she was just carrying further in the back. That's very common! Don't worry your bump's probably just shy(;
Don't stress, if your doc or mw are happy with your baby, you should be too!
With my first two babies, I barely looked pregnant at 9 months. Seriously, at full term, my bump was not a lot bigger than yours is now, and I had a 6lb 2oz baby as a first timer, 3 days before her due date.
A lot depends on your stomach muscles. Mine were really strong and I held her way further in than some other people. This time around (5th time), I am huge at 17 weeks, but not as big as I was with baby no. 4. BUT....I have no stomach muscle strength anymore. So it's not surprising.
Don't let other people stress you out!! You look absolutely fine to me!
