    HappyCatLady :  it seems like a long wait, but enjoy it! I’m 39 weeks now and over the huge belly. 

    FWIW this is 20 weeks vs 25 weeks

    Im 13 weeks and feel like im showing.. but not necessarily a bump, just overall pudge. But I feel huge.. and none of my pants go up past my thighs lol. However, like someone previously said… I think im in that thicking stage where I just pudge out in my mid section but no one would really notice yet.

    I was bloated from maybe weeks 6-ish to 12 or 13, “deflated” at about 14 weeks, and a small firm bump popped up at week 15. At week 17, someone I hadn’t seen in awhile and hadn’t told saw me and instantly knew, so I picked week 17.

    HappyCatLady :  I also wanted to add this – like you I was SO JAZZED to get the pregnancy going. I am a do-er and I really wanted to feel like things were happening and changing and underway. That said, I am now 30 weeks and am slowly dying. I researched everything as soon as I found out I was pregnant, got everything set up and prepped and now I am trying to figure out how to fill these last weeks of waiting (without being a total crazy person). I am also so tired of clothes that do not fit, and feeling heavy and slow, and this lovely baby ninja-ing me while I try to sleep.

    I am not trying to be a downer – I hope you ENJOY your pregnancy but what I do want to say is don’t rush it. Everything will happen in it’s time and while it seems like it is taking forever now, you might appreciate the extra time you were able to fit into something other than leggings and go up stairs without taking a break halfway in a few months wink

    Like others have said, it definitely depends on your body type. People didn’t know I was pregnant until about I was about 24 weeks. And up until about 30 weeks, people constantly commented on how small my bump was. Now, at almost 39 weeks, I’m so over my huge belly and I just want to be done!

    I’m 16+5 today. I was really bloated from weeks 9-15 then, like PP said “deflated” lol. I can feel my uterus about a finger width below my belly button but it’s not really making a bump yet. I’ve gained about 7lbs total from the day I found out at 4+3.

    Everyone is different but I started to show at 13-14 weeks. I was in maternity clothes at 15 weeks and had an obvious bump.
