I looked about the same. This was 22w1d with my second baby.

holy crap, my belly looked bigger than that before I was pregnant!  By 20 weeks I definitely wasn’t hiding anymore, except to people who didn’t know me all that well, though I could still wear a lot of my normal clothes.  I want to say I started showing at the end of January, so that’d be about 15 weeks, maybe?  I don’t feel like mathing right now.

misswhereami :  I had a tiny little bump around the 20 week mark. Week after week I hated taking my weekly bump picture because I didn’t think I looked pregnant, just like I had a weird beer belly.

Then around week 28 I started to feel like it was really there, but even now at 33 weeks, I feel like her position plays a big role in the shape. Some days my belly seems more round and sticks out further, and others it’s more pear-shaped/bigger at the bottom.

Looking back at pics, I sort of had it at 20 weeks and was clearly pregnant no question by 24/25 weeks.

I had to look back at my pics for this degree of accuracy, but at 19 weeks *I* could tell, people thought I was being ridiculous though.  At 23 weeks, I popped and they finally agreed that I looked pregnant.

I would say by week 17/18, I could tell, but most other people could tell by 22/23.

misswhereami :    I popped at about 24 weeks with my first, I looked about like you do before that. By 28 weeks it was obvious in clothes. Congrats! You look cute 🙂

I started to show at 13 weeks but at 14 to 15 weeks it was obvious to everyone. I had a really big baby bump.

Looks pretty normal to me for 20 weeks.  I’d say in another 4-6 weeks it will be more obvious!

I’m in the same boat as you, 19+2 and am maybe showing a tiny bit by the end of the day but not to people who don’t know me. I feel way behind in my due date month group – it feels like everyone has an obvious bump already!

This is me today…I’m pretty curvy from the front with wide hips but I guess that means my uterus has stayed low in my pelvis longer. I’m wearing maternity jeans with the band rolled down because everything low cut cuts right into my uterus.

I am 22 weeks now and in the mornings…I look normal. By the late afternoon, my stomach sticks out more. I am just starting to look pregnant. I have an anterior placenta, so not really feeling much movement, which is a bummer. So sometimes, I forget that I am pregnant.

I’m pretty thin with a long torso so I thought I wouldn’t show early. WRONG. I didn’t take into account that I have fairly narrow hips so my belly popped pretty early. In tight clothes it was obvious to strangers def by 20 weeks but to people who knew me maybe 12-14 weeks

I think I finally popped around 6 months. I always remember it being around the holidays because my niece (who was 3.5 at the time) commented that my belly was suddenly sticking out because I’d been eating so much and the baby was sticking his feet out to get more room.

I started to show around 17 weeks. I’m 38 weeks now and I’ve been more belly than anything; I look like I swallowed a watermelon 🍉
