6 months belly is small and not hard,plus other symptoms.Thoughts?


About to be six months in a few days....my belly is not hard and I rarely feel her move.I am under severe stress,but my appetite is back.Last doc appointment a few weeks ago stated she was catching up and just 3 oz underweight.I am looking at other ladies at 24 weeks and they have a navel that sticks out and noticeable belly.I look the same as I did before,with a little pooch.Belly still jiggly~I had some what of a belly before pregnancy,but not that big.I am just wondering if this is normal,or should I be afraid??

I also have stomach aches a lot and cramping(that the obgyn calls ligament pains) This is my first pregnancy and I am worried that my stress is causing her stress.I try not to stress and even take walks or sit around friends/family more.

I also feel her move sometimes in my pelvic area,way below my belly button.When will I feel actual kicks? This pregnancy is just weird in my opinion.Doc has me going to a specialist once a month too,to monitor her growth,because she was really tiny before.I also learned that my placenta is positioned weird,and it's like her kicking a pillow..I can barely feel it.Yet they told me it would move soon and her kicks will be noticeable around 6 months.Er said I had a UTI,gave me meds,OB said not true and kick the meds.Just so much and I just want my belly to grow.Now other moms I know,told me I will blow up at 7 months....Ugh this has me worried.I just want her to be healthy.I'm pretty sure she will be cute lol

Didn't want to R&R. I think you need to relax, and do what you can to ease the stress.. because that will only make thing worse!

Don't worry! I'm hardly showing at all under my clothes. Most people still don't know I'm pregnant lol...

I'm just putting it down to a small bub! I was only 6 pounds 2 weeks overdue.. so yeah, small bub.

I wouldn't worry about it too much! You still have a lot of growing to do!

I uploaded a pic of my 'bump' yesterday saying I thought I was small. I'm 25 weeks tomorrow and don't look remotely pregnant. I don't know how to link a thread but it was called 'I want a bump' if you want to see the pic. I think what they meant about your placenta is that it's anterior. Mines the same, at the front, which limits the kicks you can feel. I've felt the odd kick or squirm, but not very often and not very strong. Just try to relax as much as you can. Seeing someone once a month they'll be keeping a good eye on baby to make sure everything is ok x

No 24 weeks isnt 6 months because a month isnt 4 weeks long.. 26 weeks is closer to six months..

If a month was counted as '4 weeks' it would make us pregnant for ten months!

So 24 divided by an average month (4.3 weeks) equals 5.582 months

26 weeks divided by 4.3 weeks equals 6.04 months xx

On that link you put up, it says 22-26 weeks is six months.. you are technically five and a half months at 24 weeks and at 26 weeks you 'reach' six month pregnant x

i get what your saying but most people on here count in 4's as otherwise it gets messy and we are always doing math. Even my MW said its easier to count in 4s and have a long last month. so to most people on here 24 weeks is 6 months. But i get what ur saying so thanks for explaining x
