I have been doing so much googling and looking for baby bump picks at different weeks. I know everyone shows differently, but I was amazed to see that some people were showing at 8 weeks! I thought that was way too early to show. Then I also saw some that were farther along and still weren't showing at all.
If this is not your first pregnancy, when did you start to show with your first? I took my first picture today so I have a before picture. I can't wait until we all get to start posting baby bump pictures!

I starting getting pretty bloated in the evening around 10 weeks and starting to really show at 20 weeks. It definitely varies between people and body type.

16 weeks
4 weeks
8 weeks

With my first I didn't show until 20wks and then it was only if I wore maternity clothes. With my last baby I was showing around 12wks but most people just thought I had gained weight.
I'm not showing yet with this one, but my pants are uncomfortable.

I started noticing a bump at 12 weeks. It wasn't too noticeable to others until I was about 18 weeks. I know you start to show earlier with each progressive pregnancy, so I'm anxious to see when it'll be this time!

With my first I didn't really show much until I was 22 weeks, I'm guessing ill start showing sooner with this lil peanut since its my second. I wonder if we'll feel it kick sooner too! I'm so excited I can't wait!

With my first I was showing at 8 weeks. Pants weren't fitting by 6 weeks.

I'm 5.5 weeks now and not showing at all.

I didn't start showing until maybe 16 weeks. I expect to show a little earlier since this is my second, and I'm already noticing a difference (though admittedly that's all bloat right now).

SO to Brian
Mommy to Liam, and Gage!

With my first I noticed a big difference by 10 weeks, others could tell by around 13.

With my first it took me forever to look like I was pregnant. With my 2nd & 3rd it seemed to come on quicker than I wanted, but I'm still not sure when I started to show. I'm kind of curious how long I can keep this a secret. I think I was a little over 10 (maybe 13) weeks when I told everyone last time & I was slightly bigger, but I'm not sure friends could tell.

I don't show until about 6-7 MONTHS. I always figured it's because I'm tall. I wish I showed more and had a pretty bump.

Thanks for all the info! I am thinking I will show pretty quickly because I am only 5 feet tall. However, it is my first baby so I will just have to wait and see

I didn't start showing with my first until I was about 21-22 weeks, I'm 5' 4" lol My second I'd say I was showing around 14 weeks and with my last pregnancy I was almost to 12 weeks and still not showing enough for anyone to notice!

I had a decent bump at 16 weeks with first...but idk if people who didnt know i was pregnant just thought i was fat lol. This time around i see a difference alreafy at 6 weeks...but not noticeable to others, just me. So I expect i will be much quicker this time.

With my first, I had a noticeable bump at around 20 weeks. With my next it was much earlier, maybe 14/15 weeks?
