I'm 17 weeks and not showing. People are starting to doubt I really am pregnant. This is my first. Is it okay to not be showing at 17 weeks?

Yes very common. The muscles in you abdomen wall are very tight for first time mothers which means for many mothers having no obvious bump until later in the pregnancy. Second/third preganancys the wall muscles are looser so more mothers bumps show sooner.
