Pretty normal..usually more obvious towards the end of the second trimester or third trimester.

Everyone’s pregnancy is different, can vary a lot from woman to woman which is why some women at full term barely look pregnant while others start showing as early as 12 weeks.

Usually from 12-16 weeks from what I’ve read, but then again there is no “normal” as long as your gynae says you’re doing fine.

And wait till the 3rd trimester, you'll feel baby doing stretches and kicks and you can feel. And funny thing is you can visibility see it from your belly..

As long as your gynae says it’s normal, there’s nothing to worry about! Hell, you’re probably better off as you may be able to avoid some stretch marks.

Yup, every little punch and movement can be seen from the surface of the skin once baby gets bigger and there’s less room to move around.

There are pros and cons for both. Obviously taking any sort of medication has its risks but it does help a whole lot with the pain. If you have a low pain tolerance, definitely consider an epidural, otherwise if you want to feel everything, and I mean everything, then go without.

20 so I've been told. However, the intensity apparently has the unique ability to do a mind reset almost immediately after the newborn baby first latches on to mom's engorged milk factory. At least that's what I've been told.

Off the charts. But then again, it’s different for everyone. Some of my friends who are moms had a easy labor while others describe it as the worst pin of their life. You really won’t know unless you’ve had a baby yourself, so only one way to find out. How are you at dealing with pain?
