I was not showing at all at 18 weeks.  In fact, it wasn’t until 24 that I had any kind of noticable bump.  You might notice that your waist is a little thicker, so there may need to be minor adjustments to your dress, but hopefully you have a corset back, which should be no problem ๐Ÿ™‚

Congratulations, please post your due date on the baby list thread!

It seems like I may be a rare one but I was definitely showing by week 18. There was no way I was hiding my belly but again, it all depends on the person.

Good luck and CONGRATS! How exciting!

EDIT: This is where I was at 19 weeks, just to give you an idea.

Also, like Janna, the boobies grew pretty fast so I would take that into account. Your belly may not be growing much but you won’t be able to help your boobs.

Wow Roddy! Its amazing how our bodies are all so different.  I am 23 week and my tummy still doesn’t look like that (pic attached)  Its actually starting to get a little annoying! [attachment=915304,113249]

@Janna – I know. There were a lot of people that didn’t even look pregnant for months but not me. I think what didn’t help was my boobs. They grew so freakin’ fast, that it was hard not pretending that I was expecting. Not to mention, my belly grew kind of fast too. I was able to fit in my work clothes in the thigh and butt areas for a while but couldn’t button or zipper them around 12 weeks.

I wish all the weight would go to my tummy!! Its enjoying spreading all over the place instead ๐Ÿ™‚ I went to lunch with someone due 4 weeks after me but with the cutest, and most obvious bump (second baby), and the waitress was all concerned about her drinking caffeine but they didn’t say a word to me!!

Like most of the other ladies I wasn’t showing much at 18 weeks either, it did look like I’d been eating a few too many cheesburgers though! My boobs were also definitely bigger.

Congrats, that’s so exciting! 

I’ve never been prego, but I think you should be okay, especially since you have a corset in your dress.  Have you read Mrs. Dumplings posts?  She was 18 weeks along when she got married and you really couldn’t tell: http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/05/08/little-dumpling-surprise/  and

@Janna – Oh man, you weren’t kidding! You really weren’t showing at all. I probably was showing more than that at 12 weeks. My Mom claimed she was able to see it at 7 weeks.
