So who considers themselves showing? How many weeks are you?

When did you show with your previous pregnancies?




I am still not showing and it's driving me crazy! I have a wedding to go to next month when I'm 21 weeks and I'd really rather look pregnant than chubby!! I showed at 25 and 23 weeks...I'm hoping to show earlier this time but so far, it doesn't look like it's going to happen!

This is my first and it really depends on what I am wearing. I do have a little bump but with some clothes, I just look chubby and with some clothes, I look pregnant. I am only 15 weeks.

I am showing now, have been for about 2-3 weeks now.

With DS it was noticable at around 18 weeks, so I'm about 4-5 weeks ahead this time. I'm the size now as i was at 20 weeks with him

I just started showing - and I am almost 20 weeks. I actually was showing around 17 weeks with DS. I think I am just carrying this baby really differently.

I started showing at about 12 weeks with my first, and I think around 11 weeks this time. I guess it really just looked like chubbiness before that but I think all my pants still buttoned until 11 weeks this time. The first time, my body changed quickly, but I just looked like I was trying to wear my clothes too small until 12 weeks with DD. I am small framed and 5'3" so it doesn't take much to poke my belly out there obviously.

The good thing about not showing really early is that people won't think you look like you are 9 months when you are actually 5 months. With DD, people swore I was having twins or that I was due in January rather than May. It made me so upset that they would always say such mean things about me getting such a big belly.

LOL you would think so, but nope, people are just as bad about people who are "too small"! I've always been small with my kids and heard things (even from strangers) like "Wow your poor baby, you need to eat once in a while!" and "How selfish, dieting while pregnant". I always eat the same as I do not pregnant, eating for two is a myth and I guess some people think if you binge, your belly will get bigger...well, your uterus isn't connected to your stomach! Oh, so much rudeness no matter what size your tummy is!

I am showing now. I didn't really "pop" with this one it was more like I couldn't hold my stomach muscles any longer. I can still wear all the normal pants…for now.
I started showing with my DD around 16-18 weeks.

I'm starting to show and have been just the past couple of days, I'll be 18 weeks on Wed.
My last pregnancy I was a lot skinner and started to show around 16 weeks.

I'm also going to a wedding here soon, and I will be 21 weeks, I hope I actually look pregnant by then.

haha so many weddings! I am going to a wedding at the end of the month and i will be about 23 weeks... I'm rounding out in the front of my belly but i'm loosing weight everywhere else, and my stomach is getting harder... I'm hoping i will offically pop and make it unmistakable by the time for the wedding, because alot of the guests invited are exspecting to see a preggo belly. yay for a crap load of unwanted touching. >< my finance says that if I'm naked he can tell right away that I am.

maybe I should become a nudest.

For me right now it really depends on what I am wearing. If I squeeze into my regular shorts I just look fat, if I wear maternity shorts I look like I have a small bump. I just had one comment from someone who didn't already know last week. I am 16 weeks now. I think I really started to show around 20 weeks with my DD. I too am hoping for a real baby belly soon. I hate the in between stage!

I am kinda showing. It was about 16weeks with DD and on friday I will be 16 weeks with this one too.

I also got the "too small comments" with DD I am 5'10" so my uterus goes up for a very long time before I pop out..

I'm showing and have been showing since I tested -- at 15 weeks. I was probably showing before then, but I didn't pay attention cuz I didn't know I was pregnant.

With Ian, I started showing around 4 months {I think}, and with Bella, I started showing around 9 weeks.

I don't feel like i'm really showing yet. Last time I started to kind of pop out at 16 weeks but didn't really show until after 20 weeks.

I am short so I think that helps me in the showing department. My first pregnancy i think it was closer to 20 weeks, 2nd pregnancy before 15 and same with this one. I also think I am showing more cause the baby keeps measuring a week big in ultrasounds (thank god for knowing my o date)

I mainly just had evening bloat from 13 weeks-17 weeks that made me look slighly preggo...but I officially "popped" at 17.5 weeks. People are starting to notice now.
