It depends on the individual woman, her initial body weight, the amount of food she eats during the pregnancy... all kinds of things.

Many women are quite "flat" into the second, or even third trimester. My mom was 4 months along and people thought she was a guy.

Rest assured that at some point, she will probably look very pregnant. The key thing is for her to follow her doctor's recommendations for nutrition and prenatal care.

Sometimes it takes up to 6 months before a women start to show. So don't worry.

Just to check - she is getting pre-natal care, right?

That's vital to her health and the health of the baby. And her doctor is the first person to go to if she has any worries that there may be something wrong.
