When did you guys start to show? I'm not that far along but I get sooo bloated. Yesterday I looked like I was 3 months but it was just gas


When did you get your first BH?


When did you first see/hear the babys heartbeat? I have my 1st official prenatal on the 1st of September, I'm really looking forward to it and hope that I can see or hear the babys heartbeat. I should be around 8 weeks then.

I started to show about 15 weeks, but it wasn't incredibly visible or anything unless I wore tight clothes.

I never got BH.

As far as heartbeat, I had an appointment at 8 weeks and they couldn't find the heartbeat with the doppler. I was absolutely terrified even though the doctor (and all the girls here!) told me that it was totally normal not to hear it then because the baby was still so small. When I went back at my 12 week was the first time I heard the heartbeat.

I seriously popped at about 11-12 weeks along. But I think I looked like it was ehhh maybe just bigger and not pregnant.

I started having BHs at 6 months. But everyone is different

And I seen baby girls hb for the first when I was 6w6d. They wont try to find it with the doppler though till your at least 12 weeks.

I'm not 100% sure but persons started to notice my stomach around 3 - 4 months. I thought I was showing the second I found out I was pregnant but it was most likely imaginary.

I think I got BHs around 7 months. Could be later on.

I had my first u/s at 9 weeks.

I started looking bloated and biggish from the first week I found out. I had a somewhat noticable bump at 12 weeks. I think I look pregnant now if I have something tight on now, but to someone else I might just look chubby. I cant wait for a nice 'for sure pregnant' bump

No BH yet (but i was crampy on and off until 10 weeks)

I had an u/s at 10 weeks and saw the heart beating, but didnt get to hear it.

I had constipation and bloating around 6 weeks. I started getting actually thicker in the waist from probably 8-9 weeks, popped a little around 12 weeks and popped A LOT around 14 weeks.

I saw the heart beating at the 8 week ultrasound. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen. I didn't even need to hear it at that point, seeing it was enough. I think they first broke out the Doppler at my 12 week appointment.

I may have had a BH the other day, around 24 weeks. I was just waking up and I felt my stomach tighten-loosen-tighten-loosen. But it could have been my imagination, and it hasn't happened since. It does firm up quite a bit when I "O"!

When did you guys start to show? With my son I didn't show until I was 20weeks and hardly got a belly at all. This pregnancy, I am already showing and have been about a week, I know it's not bloat or anything since it's there when I wake up and there 24-7.

When did you get your first BH? I've never felt a BH before

When did you first see/hear the babys heartbeat? With my son, I didn't get to see or hear him until I was 26weeks since I had problems getting Medicaid. I got to see this little lovebug's heartbeat at 11weeks since I went to the hospital for fainting.

Bump: I was bloated in the evenings from early on. I could look quite big after dinnertime but was always normal by morning. I didn't get an proper round baby bump that other people could see until about 20 weeks. I looked 'chunkier' before that time.

BH: Never had them yet. I'm 28 wks.

Heartbeat: I got to see it on u/s at my first appt at 7wks 1day via a transvaginal scan. My doc doesn't use the doppler (only the u/s). The first time I got to hear it at the doctors was at my 20wk anatomy scan. I heard it before because I had bought a home doppler, but I wouldn't recommend it- they are too finicky and made me worry more than I should when I couldn't find it.

I started showing pretty early with both of my kids. I would say by 12 weeks you could definitely tell I was pregnant!

Braxton Hicks I'm not really sure, I never really noticed mine all that much but I have a very high pain tolerance. I was having actual contractions this time around when I went to my dad's funeral when I was like 35 weeks pregnant, but it was extremely stressful.

And the heartbeat they usually won't be able to find with a doppler at 8 weeks. With Aden they tried at 12 weeks and couldn't find it, and I totally freaked out but they did an u/s at the doctors office and she was just really wiggly! Then with Phineas I didn't even have a doctors appt until I was like 14 weeks, but I got an u/s to find out my due date at 12-13ish weeks.

With Taylor I was around 10 weeks and Rylie I was in maternity pants by around 8 weeks. I got my 1st BH with Taylor in the 20 weeks range and with Rylie I was around 14 weeks.
