My boobs got really big really early too… it was crazy! I felt like that was the early dead giveaway lol.

I felt like I could notice a bump around 12 weeks, but I think other people started to notice around 17w.

I felt pretty bloated early on so I felt like people could tell. But I don’t think I really began to show until 15ish weeks.

I was 6 months when I started to show with my first. My boobs didn’t change at all…just the tummy.

I noticed it at 17 weeks Darling Husband said he couldn’t tell while I was dressed. By 25 weeks I had a obvious bump.

I didn’t have a noticeable bump until around 18 weeks, and really much more obvious at 20 weeks. It still kind of depends on what I wear though. Some things are extremely obvious, others I look pretty much normal. I’m 27.5 weeks now…average height & weight, and I’ve put on about 15 lbs so far

rainbowstars :  I was SUPER bloated my first trimester and always measured ahead at my ultrasounds so I noticed a “bump” by week 12and coworkers were already asking if I was pregnant (I blamed the weight gain on Christmas treats since I wasn’t ready to share yet lol). I don’t think what we were seeing was very much baby yet though. I’m 37 weeks now and everyone keeps telling me how tiny I look (sure don’t feel tiny…) and I’m no longer measuring ahead so I think I just had an early grower.

I was about 19 weeks I think when other people could notice. I felt that I could see a bump around 17 weeks.

I remember thinking I was really showing around 18 weeks and felt huge, but now looking back at pictures post pregnancy I was so teeny tiny!  I had a tiny noticable bump (where it didnt just look like I ate a big meal) around 20 weeks. Its crazy how slow the belly grows until about half way, and how quick you get big the second half!  

Congrats on the pregnancy!!

I really popped after about 20 weeks!

I’m 24+3 now and getting bigger by the second. I started off 5’2 and 125 lbs, I’ve gained about 19lbs so far.

More like 22-25 weeks when I popped. Definitely didn’t look anything other than a little pudgy at 15weeks.  I am 6′ and long torso so lots of room.  With baggier shirts and loose cardigans I could hide it until 25 weeks for sure. Not so much the second time around

mrsh52116 :  ha me too! I thought I was showing at 15-17 weeks and laugh at those pictures now because I was still so tiny and it definitely would not have been noticeable to others!

Strangers are sometimes still surprised when I tell them I’m pregnant and especially when I tell them how far along I am (30 weeks). People who know me can tell though. Now though I feel like I look even bigger than just a week ago.. so I think I’ll grow quick this last trimester!

21 weeks 

30 weeks
