16 Weeks Pregnant With Twins...Barely Showing?

by Venus Ramos
(New York, New York,USA)

I am 16 weeks pregnant with fraternal twins. This is my second pregnancy after 12 years. During my first pregnancy with my daughter by this time I was showing and my stomach was already hard. Now, with this pregnancy, I'm barley showing and my stomach isn't hard at all.

I have read up on twin pregnancy and I guess it's just me being impatient. My babies are growing just fine. Maybe it's just me. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Try not to worry

Don't worry! I was the same as you at 16 weeks you could barely tell I was pregnant and now at 24 weeks I have majorly popped out! Every pregnancy is different. Good luck! I know it's really hard not to worry about everything :)

Don't worry, I am 31 weeks and sometimes I look in the mirror and think "shouldn't I look more pregnant?" LOL. As long as babies are growing, that is all that matters. Good luck!

We had our twins in June and they were our first and only set of twins. I got the positive test done at 6 weeks and then a doctors appointment at 12 weeks where they couldn't find a heart beat which they sent me to the hospital the next day for a ultrasound. We were ready for heartbreaking news but they found two babies that were alive and well!! Like I said all this was at 12 weeks and I was not showing in the least bit, I didn't even feel pregnant. I didn't show until 4 or 5 months along. Our twins were 7.5 lbs. and 6 lbs. 6.5 oz. at birth so they were not small babies :) You will be just fine as long as your doc has no concerns:) Eat well, rest, drink tons of water, and take care of yourself :) It goes by so fast!!

Body Type

This depends on your body type and trust me you are lucky not to be showing so soon. I am 14 weeks and I have been told I look like I'm 20 weeks. These are my second/third babies too and I started showing at 6 weeks and my belly was hard at 12 weeks. Also did you have morning sickness? I didn't have any sickness, I think women gain weight faster if they don't have any sickness.

In my experience second pregnancy takes longer to show, I had 4 kids in three pregnancies and that's what I found. The belly getting harder is the same thing. I didn't start showing with my twins till I was 3 1/2 months pregnant, had no idea that I was expecting twins till 20 wks.
