I am 5’11” and am 7 weeks prego! The bloat started imediatly and the 5lbs of weight that I had loss pre-pregnancy came right back on instantly. I am a fairly solid build for being tall, I was 168lbs pre pregnacy (would have prefered to be about 160 but I am still not “overweight”) and I am just wondering when you other talls bee’s started to show. My mom said that she was 5 1/2 months before she showed but I feel huge already! Please include any pics if you have them!

missstarling: Hi! I’m 5.9 and was 160 pre pregnancy. I was fit and normal/athletic built before getting pregnant. I had the same thing where bloat and 5Ibs appeared instantly and I have had to eat constantly through the first trimester to hold off nausea. I felt huge at 5-7 weeks as I was so bloated, had put on a fat layer on my tummy and my boobs had gotten huge. At around 10 weeks the nausea started to ease of a bit and so did the bloat but I still had a bump.
I am now at 13 weeks and I am definately showing even when not bloated. I really started to pop as I hit 12 weeks though which I think is what happens to most women.
I am still the same size in trousers, but I just cant close the top button because of the bump so even though I have put on 7ibs I actually look a bit smaller now than I did a few weeks ago since the bloat has eased off. Even my DH noticed a clear difference as he got a bit worried when I was suddenly smaller again lol. We had a US this week though and everything is fine and progressing well so it was mostly bloat.
I hope that helps?

I’m a little over 5’11 and was 155 pre-pregnancy. I’m a little disproportionate though (more leg than torso, so less room for baby). I bloated a little, but the bump actually started to appear without clothes around 14 weeks I think. Around 20 I felt obviously pregnant and people started to comment or ask.

I’m tall! Similar to you, 6’0 and I was about 160 lbs pre-pregnancy, long torso too. I didn’t really bloat at all until 11-12 weeks for whatever reason. I could tell a little bit of a bump (non bloat) around 17 weeks or so but nobody else could would notice anything except people very close that I see a lot (husband, mother). I don’t think I really looked obviously pregnant until around 25 weeks or so. So that’s about 6 months I guess? At least…before that point people might have suspected but were too afraid to say anything just yet lol. I think people started to comment around 25 weeks or so.
I wore my regular jeans until about 16 weeks if that helps.

Well I am not quite as tall as any of the previous posters, but I am 5’8″. I am currently 16 weeks 2 days and really only I can tell. My dad said I looked a little “heavier” one night at dinner, but I’ve actually only gained 3 lbs so I think that was mostly bloat from a day of not so great food choices. This picture is 16 weeks, I am still wearing my normal pants but by later in the day they feel uncomfortably tight so I don’t think that will last much longer. Its still super easy to hide with any type of not skin tight top.
