I feel like I've asked this already...so sorry if I did.

When (around what week/or month) will we have preg. bellies and they will be here to stay? BTDT mom's, think back to when you were carrying your first.

My belly is GONE again...I think I popped about a week 1/2 ago, people were telling me I looked pregnant, I got stares from the public, a couple women at stores asked how far along I was...I LOVED IT!!

But now my belly is GONE! I look like I did 12+ weeks, just a little bloated.

I understand it's b/c she probably moved, or maybe I stretched more...but I'd like to know what those two reasons won't apply anymore, and regardles of baby moving, or abdomen stretching, when will we have bellies that STAY and only get BIGGER, not smaller?

For me I really popped and stayed like that around 25 weeks. I had something but now much up till then. I know everyone is diffrent so It really will depend on your body. With this one I have popped already around 16 weeks and it's not going away.

I also think it was around 25 weeks. My first was due on April 4 and I remember by Christmas I was visibly pregnant all the time.

I think it depends totally on your body type, weight before pregnancy, and baby... I can't remember with my first but I know I was looking pregnant around 20wks and this time I'm the same... obviously pregnant at 21wks. First time I started out thin, this time 25lbs heavier.

With my first, I started out weighing about 105 lbs. I was due early July. When I went to see family in March, they had no clue I was even pregnant. I thought it was very obvious. I think I started to show for real in late April/ early May. With this one (my third) I have been showing for a couple of months now. I am not able to hide it at all at this point.

It really just depends on the Mom. Some women never really look pregnant.

I want to say with my first it was between 25-30 weeks. This time it depends on what I have on, but it is getting more obvious.

I'm thinking that, with the way my body is popping now, I'll look undeniably pregnant by about 20-21 weeks...I hope, anyway. It's getting more obvious to others, and I'm 18w5d right now. To me, I think I already look obviously pregnant, especially when I look at my belly pics page. So, I hope I don't have to wait till 25 weeks!

my gosh, i feel like i can't hide it already! if i'm wearing a shirt that fits me, i look definitely pregnant. i could hide it in a hoodie or something..kinda. but this has just happened in the past week or two..i look pregnant. i went to visit DBF at work one day and someone he worked with later on was like "is there something you wanna tell me?" haha!
but i'll admit that i'm nervous now that i'm gonna be SUPER HUGE by the time i deliver, because my sister says she wasn't showing until 6 months. i don't know.

Oh I definitely could not hide mine!! It's huge already and has been for awhile.

But with my 1st I didn't tell anyone until I was 18 weeks. I really popped around 22 weeks.

This time was much earlier.. like 10 weeks.

I totally agree with you!! I popped at like 10 weeks and now at 21 i am starting to look like a beached whale.. everyone can tell i am pregnant thats for sure there is no hiding it.. I started off thin i have gained 10 pounds all in my belly.. I think everyones body is different.. i remember my SIL popped very early too.. I am sure you will show very shortly so don't stress about it!

With Kaija it wasn't totally obvious until around 25-30 weeks. My BFF and I were due 5 days apart and we saw each other in there at some point and she said that if she didn't know me, she wouldn't have thought I was pregnant. I didn't have customers at work ask me or stop asking me to do ridiculous things for them until then either. This time it's been pretty obvious since about 15 weeks depending on what I'm wearing. But at this point, I'm only wearing maternity tops and there's so no more hiding it at all and I'm 22 weeks yesterday.

With my first I could hide it until about 25 weeks. I went to Disney World at 24 and only a few people looked at me twice...and those were on days I was wearing maternity shirts. Other times people thought I was just a wuss when I walked out of the line right before the ride (so DH didn't have to wait by himself).

This time I think I could have hid it until about last week, but I've been wearing OBVIOUS outfits around those who didn't know. So about 17-19 weeks I was "popped" and obvious.
