Is it really true what they say, that one day you wake up and your pregnant belly is just very round, out there and obvious?

I am showing some - but it isn't that 'classic big round belly' yet - I figure since I am getting closer to 20 weeks I will soon have that roundness - what about you girls? Did your belly just 'pop' one day or was it gradual?

Well I'm pretty much 28 weeks so obviously I'm showing but I felt it was very gradual... I didn't just wake up and there was a belly or anything. I even felt like my belly barely grew the last 4 weeks but my doctor proved me wrong with measurements. I kinda based my belly on stretch marks. I started with 1... And then they started multiplying and I have more every week! Haha. I don't really notice but my family does. Whenever I see my sister she's like your getting so round. Maybe because I see myself everyday I feel it's getting bigger so slowly...

Oh and I didn't really start looking pregnant till at least 24 weeks. That's when I started rounding out.

With my first pregnancy I just woke up one day and it was like, "hello, baby!" because the belly was suddenly there. I don't remember if it was like that with my second. With this one it was more gradual.

With my first, it was definitely, suddenly there I didn't start showing with her, though, until about 22 weeks or so. With this one, I feel like it did just pop one day, but it happened a heck of a lot sooner! I think around 16/17 weeks

Are you taking pics, that was really how I was able to tell when I officially popped

18w with DD


22w with DD


Oh, and pardon the lack of makeup/etc, it was late at night when we took these pics

I think it varies because my sister her first pregnancy did pop over night and with the others it was gradual

I started showing very early by 10 weeks you could tell that I was pg. The roundness probably somewhere between 13-16 weeks.

I've taken some pictures but not that many, I think it has to do with hating taking pictures (I always find myself looking awful in them) so I'm not so sure. My belly is getting much more rounded but it's still not 'out there' yet.

Yep! I wasn't a small girl to begin with but you can really see that I went from fat but semi-flat to very pregnant



That was me at 9 weeks. Ignore the stupid olive, I was going by the size chart and apparently it was an olive so I thought that was a good idea ... whatever.

I don't have any between 9 weeks and 14 weeks because it was basically the same as 9, but then this was 14
