I’m a shade on the taller side 5’9 and wear a 12 typically.  I thought I was showing at weeks 18 & 20.  But really just looked like a had some bloat.  Then at 28 weeks I thought, WOW look at this BUMP.  but in reality, it really wasn’t noticeable to strangers.  It wasn’t until about week 33+.   Of course my torso is long, so i think the baby has lots of room and thats why I was so slow to show.   I haven’t put on a lot of weight either-  WHICH IS SHOCKING TO ME! I always assumed I’d put on at least 40 pounds.

hm, I’m 5’10” and was a 14 when I got pregnant…I actually lost weight in the first trim, and when I announced my pregnancy @ 4 months at work they were shocked…I could definitely tell, but I think everyone else probably thought I was just gaining more weight, lol  Here’s a pic of me 5 mos before my due date…I was still able to hide it at this point with my work clothes.

I gained about 10 pounds in the first trimester and I could see a bump around 15 or 16 weeks. I started getting random “congratulations”  around 20 weeks.

I was a 18/20 and started to show about 4 or 5 months.

I was a size 14 before i got pregnant. I really started to show around 18-19weeks. I thought I was showing way earlier than I actually was, but now that I look back at pictures, I didn’t really show until then.

ETA: I’m 5 feet tall!

I started showing at 18w6d.  Overnight I popped!  I was wearing all pre-pregancy clothes the week before and now can’t fit in anything without my bella band.  I am now 20 weeks and have gained a total of 7 pounds.
