    Since this is my third pregnancy – I started showing fairly early around the 14-15 week mark.

    newbabybee:  I’ve MCd a couple of times this year and am KU again! Each time my jeans stopped fitting me at about 7 weeks!!! Same again this time! I’ve nothing to wear but I wouldn’t consider myself showing!! Just bloaty!!! I figured out my sister (and a friend actually) was KU at 6.5 weeks on her second but you definitely start showing earlier if you’ve already had one.

    I’m 10 and a bit weeks, first pregnancy, and I’ve definitely got a bit of a tummy. I’ve had to stop wearing fitted dresses for the moment as by the end of the day I do look a bit pregnant. It’s mostly bloat but I can already feel my uterus when I’m standing. I believe that most people can’t feel it until after 12 weeks, but it’s not unheard of at this stage, plus me and DH are doctors so we’re used to feeling for enlarged organs!

    I didn’t tell my work I was pregnant until I was almost 23 weeks. There were a few ladies who suspected because they said my face was getting fat. Gee, thanks! lol But, around the time I told everyone is when my belly really began to show. I look so much bigger in the picture I took for Christmas then the one I took for Thanksgiving. It’s crazy! I didn’t take belly pics every month, but I wish I would have.

    I started wearing maternity clothes pretty darn early because things just didn’t feel right.  My jeans totally fit (and still do actually) but I hated wearing anything with a real waistband.  My husband and I could tell that I looked pregnant (as opposed to just putting on some weight) around 13 weeks but other people couldn’t.  I popped at 15 weeks and got two comments from strangers week 16 so definitely showing by then.  I’m 19 weeks now and look pretty darn pregnant.  I could probably hide it for a short time with some artful dressing and stomach-sucking-in but not for much longer and not for an extended length of time.

    This is my second pregnancy. I was bloated right away but didn’t actually start “showing” until about 17 weeks.

    Here’s my progression – I didn’t really show much unless I was wearing tight clothes/maternity shirts into my mid 20-weeks….

    I am 10 weeks and just fat.  🙂  I was overweight before I got pregnant, so I don’t expect to really look it for a while.

    I started showing really early, my stomach was always pretty flat (though I wasn’t tiny by any means) so when I had a little lump there at 12 weeks it was noticeable, but not “baby belly”… I looked more pregnant than pooch by 16 weeks.

    I had my first coworker ask me at 11 weeks, but I think that’s just because she is nosey 🙂 Here is my progression pics as well to give you an idea of how different everyone is because E_Lynne and I have shown very differently.
