Yes!  Once my first trimester funk went away there were times when I didn’t “feel” pregnant at all.  Its the beauty of the second trimester 🙂 And I am at 23 weeks and although anyone who knows me knows I am pregnant, I still don’t really look that way to the rest of the world.  In a few weeks though you will start to feel the baby move which is amazing, and at some point you might feel tired from exertion more easily, and other random little things….but ENJOY this time because soon you won’t be able to go anywhere and not feel pregnant 🙂

It’s perfectly normal not to “feel” pregnant constantly. As for the soft & hard abdomen, I don’t think it’s anything to worry about (probably just the muscle stretching and/or baby moving and you just don’t “feel” it yet), but you can mention it to your OB if you want.

There is a bit of reprieve in the second trimester.  I had an overwhelming sense of well-being during that time and used it to get caught up on my regular work!

Hopefully, you’ll start feeling the baby move in the next few weeks and you can have hourly reassurance that everything is going well.  I started feeling Lemon move at about 13 weeks, but it was only infrequently until about 18-20 weeks.

Do we have you on the Baby List thread?  I can’t remember!

I didn’t feel the baby move until 24 weeks, but I had Braxton Hicks contractions starting at 18 weeks.  That could be the tightening you’re feeling in your abdomen, your uterus gets rigid, then relaxes.  I was kinda bummed too about not “feeling” pregnant.  Everyone else was talking about how they could feel the baby, but I didn’t feel anything.  Don’t worry, it’s totally normal!  And it will pass.  Once you start to LOOK pregnant, then you just kind of FEEL more pregnant.  And once you define what the baby’s movement feels like, that helps a lot too.  Hang in there!

It’s completely normal. I’m almost 33 weeks, and there are still days when I don’t feel pregnant. I started feeling movement around 20 weeks, and that did help make it feel more real, but there are times when it feels more surreal than anything else.

Oh my gosh, I know this sounds cliche, but just enjoy it! I didn’t feel pregnant for the longest time and it sort of freaked me out. I’m just about 35 weeks now and I look and feel like a whale, and the little bugger feels like he’s going to kick his way out of my stomach all the time. Just wait a few more weeks and things will really start to change.

Ohh don’t even worry! I didn’t feel pregnant until I could feel my baby move! I kept wanting to go get ultrasounds to make sure I was still pregnant lol.
