    laschai:  I didn’t start obviously showing (like people congratulating me) until after week 20. Here’s my 10 and 20 wk progression. My BMI pre-pregnancy was 21 so not as low as yours.

    I’m about 5’6″ and I didn’t start showing until I was about 7 months pregnant. I never really got very big either.

    My pre-pregnancy BMI was 16.8… I thought I started showing right around 20 weeks, but did I look obviously pregnant? I thought so, but in hindsight I’m not so sure (this is my 33 week pregnant self with the basketball-sized bump speaking!)

    Photo from 20.5 weeks!

    MrsEME:  Yep. That’s when I really noticeably popped with clothes on. I’m 5′ 4″ and usually between 106lbs and 110lbs. I took the same picture every week from week 5 straight through until the day after I gave birth. This was the day after (it’s so fun to look back… he’s 5 years old now!): 

     

    And to show you what I mean by showing in clothes… this was the 24th week. I could easily hide in jeans, tunics and leggings at this point but not as much in a swimsuit:

    FreshBakedPi:  Oh wow.

    Pre-pregnancy- for my first pregnancy, I was about 120.  I still felt like I was showing quite a bit more than you at 27 weeks (or even 20 weeks!).  This is baby #2.  I am 27 week, and I bet some people might think I am more like 30-34 weeks!!  I also looked super huge starting at 10 weeks this time LOL

    I think I started to show somewhere around 6 – 7 months. Here I am at 25 weeks:

    and again at 30 weeks:

    I did gain a good amount of weight, though; it just took my belly a while to show. I’m also 5’10”, so the baby had a lot of torso to hide in.
