I didnt feel like I started showing until 20 weeks or so, I just felt like I had some extra weight around my tummy but that it didnt “round” until about then. It was funny the day my husband noticed while I was changing that all of a sudden I had a baby belly.

I have always been slim, so I didn’t show till I was about 6 months along.  And even then, it wasn’t much.  LOL.  I really didn’t look all that pregnant till I hit 8.5 months and then my belly got huge but the rest of me stayed the same. I hardly gained any weight.

I got bloated and my boobs got huge right away.  I had a bump at around 15 weeks, but it wasn’t obvious to most people until around 19 weeks (I could have easily hid it before and not so easily at 19 weeks).

rainbowstars :  at my last OB appt (27wk) I had gained a total of 11lb. I told ppl at work at 19wk and everyone was surprised as I was still basically just looking a little bloated. Im 30wk now and my belly finally “popped” at about 25-26wk and looked like a baby belly not just like I had got chubby. 

I went from 34D to 36Dear Daughter and my shoe size also went from a 7.5 to 8.5.

I noticed a change around 10 weeks but definitely not obvious enough for anyone else to be able to tell- I could just see a change in how my lower belly was shaped.

I’m about 15 weeks now and I have an undeniable small bump, to me. To others who don’t know me, I probably just look bloated or like I’ve gained some weight or am chubby. I’m pretty short though, which i’ve heard means I’ll show earlier.

Not until 24 weeks. I was overweight pre-pregnancy so I could hide it well which I wanted. With GD my food intake has been pretty restrictive (hospital’s diet plan is strict) so all together I’ve gained about 9lbs total at 34 weeks. I’m definitely showing at this point. I look like I’ve swallowed a basketball. 🙂

1st baby, i was wearing maternity clothes at 14-15w.  to anyone that didn’t know me, they probably wouldn’t guess i was preg until 18ish weeks but people who knew me, could tell at 15 weeks.

prepregnancy i was petite and very fit.  i was only baby.  if you looked at me straight on from front or back you wouldn’t know i was pregnant.  i gained 25lbs.

 

now in 2nd pregnancy and from bloat and an extra 10lbs, i started wearing maternity clothes at 10w.  and i’m definitely showing at 16w.

This is my first baby, I’m 5’4 and small to begin with for reference. Honestly I just looked like I gained weight. Noone really noticed I was pregnant until around 4 months mostly because my chest grew and I looked physically ill from morning sickness. I thought I was showing at 13 weeks but apparently I really wasnt lol.

I got bigger bras almost immediately and wore maternity jeans by week 11. But it was all bloat. I had what I thought was a bump at 17 weeks, but it was not noticeable when I was wearing clothing. By 22 weeks, I thought I had a bigger bump when wearing a tank top, but my husband did not think I looked obviously pregnant. By 25 weeks, it was obvious.

Tricky one!

Id say from around maybe 24-28 weeks but when I finished work for the summer holidays and a parent asked me what I was up to they were shocked when I said ‘having a baby’. I was about 30 weeks!

I started to sort of show around 22-24 weeks, but only from the side for a long time. This is 26 weeks!

Then at 30 weeks is when I finally “popped.”

Bodies are weird. I remember being soooo antsy to show 🙂

rainbowstars :  My boobs grew really fast and are probably at least 1 size bigger. I am 19 weeks along and stuck in the “fat phase” where I look a little pudgier, but no real bump. Hoping it rounds out more soon.
