Not feeling pregnant at 21 weeks

I am just wondering if anyone is having the same feeling as me.. I'm not showing at all, in looking a little chubby but nothing else.. I'm 21 weeks pregnant and I am the same weight as I was when I got pregnant.. I am worried this isn't a good thing.

I am one of the lucky ones who has only been sick once but I feel sick often with a weird taste in my mouth after I drink or eat.

I have also lost my appetite and don't really feel like eating however I am making sure I have 3 meals a day.

I'm feeling pretty low about being pregnant because obviously I don't feel pregnant so I feels like I'm a fake? I have had 4 scans (8, 12, 16 and 20 weeks) and baby is looking healthy and moving.. I should mention I also can't feel baby move at all yet.

Any advice would be welcomed

Exactly the same as you!! Take photos of your stomach week by week, you will start to see the changes Smile

I’m the same no bump just my stomach flab that annoys me since my mid 20s . When is your 20 week scan?

Oh and no feelings yet :( lots of people have said here first time mum sometimes don’t feel the flutters and stomach muscles can take some time to push out .

A lot of first time mums don’t feel movements until quite late on! I think up to 28 weeks is normal to not feel movement :)

2nd pregnancy and I've definitely felt movement's earlier than the first and I'm showing more so I think with a first pregnancy you're normal, and lots of people don't get much nausea either. I did but I've only been sick about 3 times.

Do you have an anterior placenta? I only started to get the very faint bubbles around 21 weeks wasn't until 25 weeks that I felt some undeniable movements.
