Hey Everyone. I know that everyone's body/pregnancy is different, but I was just wondering about how far along all of you were when ya'll started showing. I'm 13 weeks and you can only tell that I'm pregnant when I lift up my shirt, but with my clothes on you really can't tell. My fiance points out all the time that I don't look pregnant compared to other people he knows that are as far pregnant as I am. Should I be worried??

I'm 17 weeks and I think that the only reasons why I am showing is because 1.) I'm bloated half of the time and 2.) It's mostly fat because I've been eating so much!

If I were you, I would be happy that you can still fit into your normal clothes.

Thanks to mtdk454 for the beautiful siggie!!

This is my first, and I Started showing around 18 weeks. Between 18-22 weeks I completely blew up! I got HUGE!

At 13 weeks, I wasn't showing at all! I could still fit into my regular jeans and shirts too.

I really didn't show until after about 24-25 weeks. But between weeks 26-27 weeks people started to notice and ask but after 29-30 weeks there was no mistaking it, I"m pregnant. Now I'm dropped so low it's the first thing most notice. BTW I had a few extra pounds on me in the begining, don't know if that made a difference.

Hey. I wouldn't worry too much about you not showing all that much yet...Here, check out my website...It's got all my belly pics from 4 weeks to now...Honestly, I just went through them all, and I almost just crapped myself! Like, compare week 4 to now!!! AAAAHHHH!! You should be happy you're still tiny! Enjoy it while it lasts! Although, I have to say, I hope you post pics of your belly once you do start showing more...I'd love to see the progress!

I didn't start really showing until 15 weeks, before then I just looked and felt fat. It was really annoying. i know how you feel. It gets better, trust me.

I am hardly showing at all and i am 31 weeks i lost 10kg at the start and only have put on 2kg i dont even look pregnant and i am still wearing my normal clothes especially my jeans r still fitting me.I feel like i am missing out on things cos i dnt have a belly.people r astonished i am already 31 and a half weeks along and cant believe im due in 8-9 weeks. I guess i like the surpirising bit of not showing and then turning up at places with a baby and them saying i didnt know u were pregnant. )

I've never looked pregnant at 13 weeks. I'm really slender, but carry 90% of my fat in the stomach area. So with number one, I was 5-1/2 months when I got my first stranger asking when I was due, and for #2 it was about 4 months, and I got very huge, and have been asked regular if it's twins, ever since.

I started showing at about 7 weeks. There was a little bump going on but from 7 to 8 weeks, I think I exploded, lol. My latest pictures are at 14 weeks and 3 days I think. I'll go post them in the belly section now. I'm really worried that it's twins but my ultrasound isn't for another 13 days. My nutritionist said my weight gain is very typical of multiple babies. 16 pounds in 15 weeks!! Eek! When I post my pic, look at the difference from the ones I posted at 12 weeks and these ones. It's insane!
RIP Grammie (06/24/35 - 07/25/06) and Grampie (08/18/26 - 07/26/06). I love you both and I miss you so much...

I started showing around 14 weeks, but it just looked like I was gaining a BUNCH of weight (which I was but that's beside the point. ). You could tell that I was pregnant probably around 20 weeks or so... it's normal for your first pregnancy not to show early.

And trust me girly, you should be happy that you still can fit in your normal clothes. I am SO SICK of tshirts and sweat pants... thank god I only have three more weeks left.

My mom was showing by the time she was two or three months pregnant, but she's had huge babies for her body frame! Poor woman! lol

You may just be carrying a pettite baby My sister was pettite compared to myself and the rest of my siblings...we were all about nine lbs! She was only six or seven and perfectly healthy. It all depends on your body, I suppose.

I'm just over 13 weeks and I really just started showing last week, but I still think it's at the stage where noone would ask, b/c they don't know whether you've just gained weight or not, but I can definitely tell.... Luckily I'm carrying so high that I can still wear my regular jeans, but I am having to go out and buy some extra large/long tops to wear.... I can't wait until I get the undeniably pregnant belly, then people won't just think I'm getting fat.
