Wondering when you started to show? Would be helpful, if comfortable, saying what your pre pregnancy pant size was. I’m a 16/18 and currently 8 weeks. Plan to announce to extended family at Canadian thanksgiving (October 14), just curious if my belly will give it away.

@awakemysoul: I didn’t start to noticeably show until after my 20wk appointment. Sure, you could tell if I wore something really form-fitted, but a lot of people commented that they had no idea I was pregnant before then.

i was an english size 8 (so i think thats a US size 4?) and from 13 weeks i had a bump. not a huge one, but id say i look pregnant as its very localised weight. now at 15 weeks – definitely. my entire middle is thicker

I started to ‘show around’ 12/13 weeks but only very slightly. I was a bit smaller size wise than you. That said, you will notice much more before anyone else does. It’s pretty ambiguous in terms of the belly until you get to a certain point as to whether it’s a pregnant belly or just belly.

I popped right on the day of 18 weeks! I noticed but thought it was in my head until DH said that he noticed too. Having said that I saw some out of town friends who said they could tell a few weeks before that.

I started to show around 13 weeks but I just look fatter. So not sure when I’ll actually Pop.

@awakemysoul: I had twins so I was never really small. I would say I started to show at about 9 weeks.

I’m 13.5 weeks now, and I “think” that I just popped! Obviously I have a lot more to go to have something to compare it to… I’m very skinny, a size 2, and bc of that it looks like (even thoug its small) I either have a disproportionate belly or I’m pregnant! I can def tell now, especially comparing my ten week picture with the thirteen one, and a close friend just told me she can tell now!

I’m 17 weeks and still just look a little thicker in the middle. No bump yet.

I popped at around 19 weeks. I had a small bump but not that anyone would notice, I just looked chubbier. At around 19 weeks were the first comments that I actually looked pregnant. I’m a size 14.

I’m a size 12/14 pre-pregnancy and I didn’t really show until maybe 21 or 22 weeks? I always had a bit of a pot belly and actually I gained very little weight the first 6 months. People who knew me said they could tell earlier but strangers didn’t know I was pregnant for a long time. Even today at 28 weeks, I *think* I have a pretty obvious bump but I’ll still get the random comment from people who didn’t know me pre-pregnancy that they didn’t realize I was pregnant.

I thought this said “When did you poop?” I thought that was a strange poll.
Sorry for the threadjack. I’m out.

I was about 8 months before I really had a belly. I carried really small though through my entire pregnancy.
