I think it depends more on weight than height, but I’m not sure.

started at size 16. 30 weeks.

First pregnancy started at size 10/12 this is at 9 months.

Also I will add I think some of it is just how people carry the baby. My mother was 110lbs when she got pregnant at 5’6” and her bump was just as huge as mine. I’ll try to find a picture.

@lealorali:  I think it has a lot to do with height / torso length. Weight and how toned your ab muscles are have a lot to do with it as well.

I’m 5’8″, 142 pre-pregnancy. A couple sample bumps below. I took forever to start showing, then when the bump finally appeared, it grew quick!

I’m 5’3 and started my pregnancy at about 130 lbs. The 1st picture is a comparison between 16 weeks and 36 weeks. The second picture was my last bump picture at 39 weeks. I didn’t really show until 20 weeks.

I am 5’8″, 135 pounds pre-pregnancy, currently 130 pounds at 17 weeks (very sick first trimester) and not showing at all.

But yes, your friend is right.  Taller women, especially those with long torsos, will most likely not show as much as a shorter woman.  My Dr. explained this to me when I went to her the other day asking where my belly was! I don’t think that sex of the baby has anything to do with it though.
