@lovebugfouts:  We seem similar in size! I’m 5’2″ and was 222 pre-pregnancy. I have a whole “bumpdate” section on my blog (link is in the profile—hover over “baby” on the blog and then click on “bumpdates”) I think I started showing right away, but friends started commenting around 20-24ish weeks. I’m 33 now and there’s no doubt that I’m pregnant 🙂

I finally started to “show” when I was about 20 weeks or so with my bump. But then again I went 7 weeks early so I had a little bump and didn’t get to huge since my little boy decided to come early.

I’m 5’7 and was 245-250 pre pregnancy. I’m 12ish weeks and 230… my stomach is changing shape a little and a few friends of mine say they can start to see my bump. I think it’s bloat over baby. I’m pretty sure I’ll start to show in a month or so.

I’m 5’5 and was about 18 (size 12ish) pre-pregnancy.  I had the same fear – that I wouldn’t show or that it’d take forever.  I think I started to show around 14 or 15 weeks or so.

Here’s 5 weeks…

And here’s 15 weeks… Clearly I popped!

And here I am today at almost 27 weeks…

I was probably an 18/20 when I got pregnant and this was one of my biggest Fears.  I started showing around 20 weeks.  I’m 38 weeks today and, for the past few weeks, strangers have been asking me when I’m due or offering congratulations – so it’s clearly obvious now.  Please don’t fret over this – I promise that you will get to look pregnant:)

i have been a size 20/22 pretty much since i was 14 so this was always something in the back of my mind when Fiance and i discussed kids. when i fond out i was pregnant with my now 2 year old son i was already 4 months along with no changes in size and i really didnt see any chanes until i was about 6 months along. with this pregnancy i can already feel a change like pants to fitting right and whtnot but it just looks like i have put on more weight. im expecting with this one i will be obviously pregnant much earlier!

I was about 210lb & 5’8 (size 18) pre-preg.

10 weeks is still so early! i think you will definitely start to show. but every body is different. there were two girls at work who were probably about the same size in clothes and due on the exact same day but one showed instantly (obvious bump at 12 weeks) and got really big while the other barely looked pregnant until 30+ weeks. they both had 7lb girls.

this is my skinny-mini friend who is a day shy of 17 weeks pregnant in the picture. if a size 00 is barely showing at 17 weeks, i don’t think you have to worry about not showing at 10 weeks. =D

I’m a plus-size mama, found out I am PG on Friday. Hoping for a sticky baby, can’t wait to actually have a baby bump. But I have a big tummy so it won’t be for a while.

I’m 13 weeks and PP 5’9″ and 245-250 (size 18).  I just look fatter.  I know I’m “showing” because my pants barely fit… but then again I’m eating moer than usual so it may just be fat LOL….

I don’t know that i’ll look “pregnant” for a while. I think I’ll look like I’m gaining weight and people will be afraid to ask.

I go in for my diabetes test tomorrow and am concerned. My dr wanted me to only gain about 10 lbs this pregnancy since I”m in the obese category… and I feel like I”ve passed that up!

Internally to externally my stomach FEELS huge to me!!!
