Although it can also be spotted at cervical smears if it's quite pronounced.

I have had laparoscopys in the past and they told me then. Also had scans dome before this pregnancy where i was told it's still retroverted. It definitely gets to me when people keep going on about how I don't look pregnant etc but as long as baby grows well that's all that matters xx

This is me with baby #4 at 19 weeks. I think there was a time with my first or second I wished I showed more, but now, I have to say it is SO nice being able to get back into my normal jeans sooner - and stay in them longer. It is also nice not having to deal with loads of extra skin post-birth.
Oh, and like many of you ladies, my uterus is retro.

Ahh, cute! I'd say definitely a retroverted uterus thing then.
I did end up HUGE with my son but it didn't happen till late, I'm starting to feel like this bump will never happen! But even though I ended up really massive with him, I was able to get back to a pretty tiny size and flat stomach about a year after he was born so maybe not showing till late helped.

Yep! It definitely has its perks. I've been back in my normal jeans within weeks to a couple of months. One thing that is not cool about a retro uterus is the fact that it's already resting more on your bladder. Then you add baby...

Regardless, I call my pregnancy body experience, "The Thickening"...since I don't look pregnant. I just look thicker.

So far I'm the same, I just look thicker too! I really don't know if being small till late contributed to being able to get skinny again after my son though, because I did end up exploding in size. Who knows this time round. But I don't hold my belly in now, if I'm gonna be pregnant and - as you say - have all this weight on my bladder and stuff, then the world is bloody well gonna know I'm pregnant! Haha. I just need people not to look too closely when I sit or bend down. My "bump" suddenly reveals itself to be mostly podge haha. I'm like Beyoncé at that interview

All lovely bumps ladies!

I do have to say, because interesting about the retroverted uterus convo, but I'm definitely an opposite to that theory - I've got an extremely retroverted uterus and have had an obvious bump with both pregnancies. It would definitely otherwise make sense tho.
