    You have such a cute bump! I bet mine will be about the same size when I'm that far along. I'm almost 16 weeks and practically not showing at all! When did you start to show? I bet yours will pick up speed soon and you'll be amazed :)

    Don't worry. In my experience, that period of time between 20-25 weeks is when you can really just start to pop. It's like you don't have a huge belly, and then all of a sudden, after 1-2 weeks, it's there. For me, it wasn't very gradual. I'll bet you'll hit your growth spurt in the next week or two.

    I'm the same size as you, and I'm 25 weeks. I feel like I'm also way too small, especially when I see other ladies at my doctors office who are huge.

    Just for comparison, here is me at 19 weeks and 4 days:

    And then at 25 weeks and 3 days:

    You can see how much I grew. But most of it happened between 20-25 weeks. All women and pregnancies are different, though!

    I think your bump is the perfect size, seriously!
    My MIL loves to tell me how small I am too... I think people don't actually knows what a 19/20/21 WHATEVER week belly should look like. They ARE all different, after all.

    Do you by any chance feel your baby in your ribs?
    Does he/she move alot?
    If so can you see it from the outside?
    Is it a boy or girl? (just curious)

    I was the same size of you prepregnancy and I JUST am starting to show within the last week. Somedays I'm the size of you in the pic and I think yesterday I was showing pretty good. It depends I guess on how the baby is sitting. And if this gives you any hope, I read that within the next 4 weeks our babies are supposed to DOUBLE in weight!!!! I think that'll push your pooch out a bit :D

    I'll be 25 weeks soon, and my bump has popped more then I ever thought it would. It's huge and I really look pregnant. But just two weeks ago, people were commenting on "how small I look." So don't worry about it. Each body is different, each pregnancy unique.

    It was just all the sudden that I can feel my son in my ribs while kicking the bottom of my uterus, it's NUTS! I went to bend over the other day and couldn't right away because he was in my way!!!! It was cool and weird. But today I don't even look preggo, but every day I get bigger I get a bigger smile....even though I know that smile may fade as I find it hard to manage doing regular daily chores. lol Have fun watching your bump grow!!!!!
