Answer: Hii There are plenty of reasons why you appear to carrying a small or large baby – here are 7 of them:- 1) it depends on ur height. If you’re tall and have a long abdomen, your baby has a lot of growing space. Your uterus will tend to grow upwards rather than push outwards.and in the case of shorter height mom to be case will be vice versa.  2) if u r first time mom to be tends to have a more compact bump because the large abdominal muscles haven’t been stretched before. They are usually toned and tight, holding the baby snug and high. This can make you look smaller than you might expect at a given point in your pregnancy. 3) baby movement also rules the shape of ur stomach.soeciwlly in the last trimester baby prefer heads down position. May be some time in different day time ur size will.vary due to baby movement.  4)When you’re housing a baby, placenta, cord and fluid, your internal organs have to fit somewhere. As the uterus grows, the intestines can be pushed behind it, making your belly look very round and ‘all baby’. Or your intestines might move to the sides of your uterus, making your belly appear big and ‘to the sides’.  5) Pregnancy stretches the abdominal muscles so that the growing baby can be accommodated. These muscles stay flexible after the birth and don’t regain their previous tone. During your next pregnancy, you might notice your bump showing much earlier and looking bigger. This doesn’t mean your baby is larger – your body has been altered by your previous pregnancy.  6) The amount of fluid surrounding your baby can fluctuate. While too much or not enough amniotic fluid can point to problems, it’s common for the levels to change every hour or so. In the first 20 weeks, most of the amniotic fluid is produced from your own body fluids. In later pregnancy, your baby is producing the larger amount of amniotic fluid, mainly from lung secretions and urine output. So, depending on how pregnant you are, if you or your baby are producing plenty of fluid, your belly might alter in shape or size.  7) Okay, so it’s a bit obvious but you might actually be having a big or small baby. Genetics play an important part in the baby’s size. If both parents are tall, then the baby will probably have the same traits. If both are average size, the baby is more likely to be petite and not very long. Babies tend to be in the same weight range as their parents, too. 
Answer: Hello! There is nothing to be worried about. It is normal. Having a small belly could be due to the following reasons. Being a first time mother - if your abdominal muscles have never been stretched before by pregnancy, your muscles will tend to be quite toned and tight. This can make you 'show' later and hold your baby very close and high, looking 'small'. Some women having their second or subsequent baby can also look small, particularly if they were very athletic and fit between pregnancies. The position of the baby - your baby moves and changes position regularly, particularly up until around 32 to 34 weeks of the pregnancy. Depending on the position your baby is in, your belly may at times look smaller and at others slightly bigger. Even during very late pregnancy, your baby may move their back from one side of your belly to the other, also changing your shape. Your height - women who are tall and long-waisted, with a large length between the top of their hip and the bottom of their lowest rib, have plenty of room for their baby to grow upwards. This will tend to make them 'look' smaller because their uterus is not pushed as far forward. The uterus moving the intestines - the growing uterus can push your intestines upwards and backwards, to tuck away behind the uterus (making you look 'all baby' or like you've 'swallowed a basketball'). This is compared to the intestines being pushed around the sides of the uterus, giving a woman's belly a rounder, fuller and bigger look. Take care
Answer: Hello dear many reasons why belly looks smaller. If you’re tall and have a long abdomen, your baby has a lot of growing space. Your uterus will tend to grow upwards rather than push outwards. 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. your bump will show earlier and look bigger. A woman having her first baby tends to have a more compact bump because the large abdominal muscles haven’t been stretched before. They are usually toned and tight, holding the baby snug and high. This can make you look smaller than you might expect at a given point in your pregnancy.
Answer: The important thing to remember, is that there is no right size for your bump. All women, and all pregnancies, are unique. Bump size can be influenced by lots of factors, including: the number of pregnancies – first pregnancies tend to be smaller bumps because tummy muscles are tighter the number of babies – women carrying multiples often have bigger bumps the amount of fluid – it’s not just baby in there, the amount of fluid in your uterus could also affect your bump size the baby’s position – you may notice that your bump changes shape each time your baby changes position your posture – your bump may look bigger or smaller if you stand in certain ways Your body structure - height, weight, hip size etc
Answer: Hello Dear, there isn't a set time, some women show their pregnancy belly in the second trimester, while others start showing in the first trimester. First-time moms usually begin developing a baby bump between 14 and 20 weeks. Moms who’ve already been pregnant start showing sooner, since their uterine and abdominal muscles have already been stretched from an earlier pregnancy. If you're showing later than expected, don't worry. The uterus can rest in the body in a variety of positions. Sometimes a woman's uterus is tilted toward the back, which can cause her to show pregnancy bump later. Consult your doctor he/she may do an ultrasound to ensure that everything is fine. Take care.
Answer: Hi, It is completely normal, I didn't have any signs of pregnancy in my first trimester, I didn't gain any weight until 24 weeks and didn't get a baby bump until almost 28 weeks.  Every women takes to pregnancy different, some women have every symptom in the book and some lucky girls have no symptoms. Enjoy your time that you feel good, it could change at any minute. If you have doubt, you can consult your doctor. He will check ur baby heart beat.
