At 13-ish weeks, people who knew me could tell that I was pregnant. At about 16/17, people started to give me their seats on the subway! I also have a very short torso, so I think I showed pretty early.

My first started really around 5 months or so.

My second, it’s been more like 4 months.

And by “show,” in both cases, it’s really my stomach and intestines having to get shoved up to make room for the uterus that’s really “showing” because of my short torso (people who don’t really know pregnant anatomy put their hands on my stomach to feel the baby. I dont’ correct them, but the baby’s like, way lower  🙂 )

But everyone’s different. If you have extra weight in your midsection (I do after having the first), then you might take longer to show than if you’re iron-board flat. And some ladies just stay small for a while and then *bam*! Congrats, either way!

I started to show about 15 weeks. I’m also very short with long legs, though, so I feel like my bumb sticks out more than some women since my torso is smaller.

I’m 27 weeks and still don’t really show unless I’m wearing very form fitting clothing.

I didn’t really start showing till ~24 weeks. I could tell before then, but I sat in that stage of maybe pregnant/maybe fat for a LONG time. I’m 28 weeks now and if I wear tight shirts it’s pretty obvious, but if I wear a lose sweater, it’s still not obvious. My boobs still stick out just a little further than my belly, so I think that is why.

I’m 23 weeks and you couldn’t tell I was pregnant unless I wear tight fitting clothes. I’m thinking it’ll be unmistakable in a few weeks.

Hmmm I thought I could see a bump at 13 weeks but DH didn’t see it until about 20 weeks!

KKML125:  with my first- 18 weeks or so. Now with my second, visibly showing just started like last week around 16 Weeks. Before the actual bump, I just had bad bloating and felt like a pufferfish ha! But then it turned to actual baby a few weeks after that cleared up

I was in maternity pants at 10 weeks, but looked more obviously pregnant at about 20 weeks

At 16 weeks (a few days ago lol) my bump started to become very obvious.  I also have a short torso.

I’m almost 20 weeks now and people have flat out asked me how far along I am that are strangers so I think now. Haha! Before people were afraid to ask because I was in that awkward, “She could be pregnant” phase.
