Just like the title says….how many weeks were you when you looked pregnant to the world!! I will be 22 weeks tomorrow and although I have a small bump it isnt super noticable. People say they would never guess that I am pregnant and people who know me well say they can tell I have a small bump but if they didnt know I was pregnant they would think I just gained a little weight. I am fairly small to begin with a long torso. People at work keep joking about where am I hiding the baby. They mean well but it makes me wonder am I ever going to pop out and be noticeably pregnant? From my last appt my baby is normal size and I have been feeling her move quit a bit which is great. I know everyone is different. Just curious if any of you popped out later? I see pics online of women who are 16 weeks with their first pregnancy and have these beautiful baby bumps!! I have heard with a first pregnancy you can take longer to show. My doctor isnt concerned so neither am In just curious I guess. Thanks bees!!

I’m 29 weeks and some people still tell me that they couldn’t tell that I’m pregnant. Which kind of makes me upset lol because…do they just think that I have a soccer-ball-sized beer gut or something? At 22 weeks, I remember feeling like I could hide it or flaunt it depending on what I wore.

First pregnancy it took a good bit. Second it was obvious in the first trimester. I’m guessing if I had anymore it would be very obvious.

I had a “bump” at twenty weeks if I stood sideways and had a belt or empire waist something on. It wasn’t until probably 28 weeks that it was like “Oh wow, that is a baby not lunch” sized bump. But I am super long waisted. Now I am 37 weeks pregnant,all bump and measuring two weeks ahead because this baby LOVES to be all stretched out. If you are not teenie tiny or are kind of taller/long waisted it’s pretty normal to not be that big yet!!

I just looked back at my belly pictures, and I was 23 weeks when it started to look like an actual baby bump. I remember being excited when it was finally obvious I was pregnant. I just felt bloated and heavy before that. But before you know it your bump will be huge and you’ll be longing for the days when you could put shoes on without sitting down.

I’m almost 24 weeks and while it’s obvious to me, I think I just look fat in the gut to people who don’t know. Unless I wear tight maternity tops/dresses, it really just looks like pudge. sigh

It was ridiculous! I was 35 weeks, and people still couldn’t immediately tell I was pregnant. My baby was a bit small, but still normal. She was born at 37 weeks 5 pounds and 9 ounces. I am a size 10, but I have huge breasts, and I think it camouflaged my belly. I hated that I never looked super pregnant. It did help for pp because most people said that I didn’t look like a had a baby, and they were right. Again, these huge knockers camouflaged my belly. Everyone is different, and I hope you pop soon!

1st baby, I’d say 16/18 weeks, second, probably more like 13/14- but I’m also very short, and carry way out in front.

I think at 24ish weeks, I couldn’t hide it anymore in anything I wore. Up to then if I wore a looser top, it didnt show. At 20/21, I could still wear tighter clothing and I could tell cause my stomach is typically pretty flat, but people who didnt know me probably just thought I had a small pooch. I think some people just dont’ really pop or carry differently, even though the fundal lenght is right on track. I constantly get the jaw on the floor look and told I’m tiny for how far along I am.

I could have worn a large t-shirt the whole time.

I’m just shy of 23 weeks and while it’s obvious to me ppl still act surprised when I tell them. My boobs have grown so much too that my belly and boobs (all extra 15 lbs of them..) are still roughly the same plane.

I had a bump that you could see in a tight shirt at 16-17 weeks, but it could have still been mistaken for pudge I suppose. At 22+ weeks it was pretty damn clear. This is my first pregnancy and I think I was showing early compared to a lot of first-timers, but I have a short torso so maybe that was part of it.

I was six months along maybe before I actually showed and people were really finally starting to notice I was prego! And it was because I was wearing a tight, stretchy dress, I remember. LOL. I was really small all throughout my pregnancy. Even my co-worker who was three months pregnant at the time had a bigger belly and looked way more pregnant than me. But in my ninth month, I felt my belly was huge even though people still said I didn’t look that pregnant. Guess it’s different for everyone. 🙂

candy08 : I am tall and have a long torso and it was more like 26-27 weeks before it was obvious and the first person asked about it who didn’t already know. Yeah, a lot earlier with the second baby lol.
