    5’4″ 114 pre-prenancy and I started showing at the beginning of the 2nd trimester. (of course I was bloated before then so I had a bloat bump from about 8 weeks on) I could hide it until about 18 weeks though, if I wanted to.  By 20 weeks, strangers were stopping me to ask if I needed to sit etc.  Looking back at pictures I feel like I was so small then, I can’t believe strangers were so bold.

    It depends on what you mean by “showing”. I’m about your height but slightly chunkier and I got the bloat bump (as Travellingfool mentioned) quite early. In fact, I’m currently at 7w1d and I’ve transitioned into a belly band to wear with my existing jeans because while I can technically button my pants, it’s a super tight fit and it’s not fun squeezing in a perma-bloated belly.

    Does it look like a full on baby bump right now? No. It just looks like I’ve put on some weight in the midsection. Either way, it’s not like I’m completely flat and asymptomatic.

    In addition, I think this may vary depending on if you have multiples. I think I read online that mommas of multiples show earlier.

    Depends on your definition of “showing”.  If you mean that a perfect stranger could tell that you were pregnant, for me that has been just now around 24 weeks.  If you mean, people that know you and what your belly normally looks like, I would say that was 17/18 weeks.  I’m 5’3, size 2 normally for reference.

    I started showing around 11-12 weeks (I’m 5′ and was 122lbs pre-pregnancy). Strangers started asking around 15 weeks.

    I’m 5’3, and was 125-130 pre pregnancy… here are some of my bumps:

     

     

     

     

    I could tell by about 10 weeks that I was beginning to ‘soften’ a bit, but with the right outfit I could have easily hidden the pregnancy up until about 18-20 weeks.

    This is my 12 week photo. I’m not sure how much is bloat and how much is bump, but my stomach is definitely much less flat! I’m 5’2″ and was about 95 lbs pre-pregnancy.

    I’m 5’3″ but not thin like others upthread (about 145 pre-pregnancy). I think my bump is being obscured by my normal belly. I wasn’t showing at 15 weeks and still in my usual jeans. The photo below is between 17 and 18 weeks. I think most of that is just my usual belly. Mother-In-Law says I’m carrying in my breasts. :/

    Now at almost 20 weeks, strangers can’t tell but I can only wear my old jeans with a belly band.
