I found with my first pregnancy, it wasn’t noticeable to other people until I was about 24 weeks unless I was wearing something very tight fitting. This time I started showing much earlier and had a visible bump by 16 weeks. However, I was wearing loose clothing at that point so no one said anything. I’m 21 weeks now and I’m about the same size as I was at 26 or 27 weeks last time and it’s very noticable – people that haven’t seen me in a few weeks are like ‘whoa that happened quick!’

minimalistoverplanner – Yeah from the beginning of the pregnancy I just wore work pants without zippers to work (luckily had 2 pairs like that and I purchased another) – I don’t even remember what it’s like to wear pants with zippers…

Get some comfy pants without zippers – life changing!

At 17 weeks and people who know I’m expecting seem disappointed when I see them because there’s not much bump yet. I can tell a difference and my pants are tighter but some days it seems huge and the next day and seems like not much at all. 

I’m a FTM so I’m alot smaller than experienced mothers at the same gestation.

I’m pregnant with my first and two female co-workers could tell by week 9 going into 10 weeks but I was really really bloated and now the bloat’s gone away mostly, they said I’m not really showing now (but I do have a small bump).

People who know me and others who don’t know me, seem oblivious still. I’m going to be 12 weeks tomorrow. My work skirts and pants hardly fit me now 🙁 I am so ready for maternity pants and loose tops to wear under my jacket lol

I’m short waisted, and with my first I thought it was really obvious at about 14 weeks, but really nobody noticed till closer to 20.  With my second pregnancy people noticed right before my loss at 12 weeks.

I am 12+5 today with my first and have already had people comment on my bump if I’m wearing anything semi-form fitting. It’s crazy, I thought I had another 8ish weeks before I would show!

I’m 13w with my second and I feel as of 12 weeks my co-workers have started staring at my belly. Tomorrow is my NT scan so if all goes well I will be announcing directly after and no longer have to hide it!

MrsHawkeye :  I’m having my first too and two co-workers guessed already. I was going into 10 weeks.

ChaiSpice :  I no longer believe people who swear you don’t show with your first until 20+ weeks.  Saturday at 13+1 I had a stranger give up their seat for me because I was pregnant (without me saying anything).  

 

UNREAL.

Currently 13 weeks with my first. I currently look like I had too many cookies. I’m patiently waiting for my bump to come in. I have family pictures with the dogs scheduled at 21 weeks, so I want a visible bump by then. My coworker had a visible bump by 14 weeks. We’re both right around 5’0″ and I’m a bit longer torso than she is.

MrsHawkeye :  Me either. Everyone is different. I’m slender with a short torso so I have no where else for the baby to go but out. My sis in law also showed early with her first.

With my first…I don’t think I was convincingly pregnant looking until 18 weeks. Second baby, right now, I feel like I’ve had the upper belly for the last week or so and I’m only 12 weeks today. Muscle memory!

llevinso :  I was 17 weeks along when people started offering me their seat on the bus 🙂

At 23 weeks I don’t think I would have been able to hide it
