@Lemon-Squeezy:  I am 5’5″, slim build and I think I started showing around 25-26 weeks. Even at 29 weeks now I have to tell people- they usually don’t think I look pregnant, but I think it’s just the clothes I wear or the way I sit/stand?

@Lemon-Squeezy:  I am also slim and athletic, and I’m 5″3″. My core was very strong before getting pregnant and I’m very active, so I thought it would take me forever to show. Nope! I am showing now at 13.5 weeks (at least to myself, my husband, and people that know me, I don’t truly look pregnant yet). However, according to both my gynecologist (who I saw before getting preggo) and my midwife my uterus is tilted very far forward! I’d never heard of such a thing. So that means I’m showing earlier that I otherwise would. I’m worried I’ll be huge by 6 months….

I’m pretty slim, 5”5 and started my pregnancy at just under 130. I had a little bump at about 13 weeks but those who don’t know me still don’t have the courage to congratulate me at 22 weeks…although I think it’s pretty darn obvious now πŸ™‚

I am 27 weeks and I think it depends on what I wear.  If I wear maternity clothes that cling then it’s no question that I’m pregnant.  If I wear some regular loose fitting shirts then it’s a toss up.  A lady actually asked me if I was pregnant the other day.  She said she wasn’t sure and didn’t want to offend me but thought that I was.  Lucky for her I am. I think I will be so sad if people still ask me that after I give birth.

@hspw714:  I am so scared of people asking me that now that I’ve had my baby. It doesn’t help that I’ve now got a giggly pooch that won’t seem to go away πŸ™

At 26 weeks I really looked pregnant.  It 24 weeks I went to our work Christmas party and most people had no idea I was pregnant until they noticed I was not drinking!  If I didn’t have such a large chest, I think people would have noticed sooner.

@BrandNewBride:  Your bump really isn’t on the small side in any of those photos, like you keep insisting all over the internet. It looks like its measuring on track for your frame.

@Lemon-Squeezy:  I really thought I was showing at 16 weeks but in retrospect it was probably closer to 21-22 weeks, since I was offered a seat on the train πŸ˜‰

All of you ladies look beautiful! Perfect bellies <3

@ladeeeda:  That’s interesting! I have big boobs too, so people probably think I just ate too much. But Im also only in my 16th week. I`ll have to attend a wedding at 8 months pregnant and Im scared Im just gonna look like a huge meat ball because of the huge boobs and belly πŸ™

@MrsRugbee:  Hope you dont take this wrong, but the fact that your booty got a little bigger during pregnancy gives me hope lol! Besides your booty and belly everything looks like in the beginning of your pregnancy. Are you working out?

God blessed me with big boobs (when I gain weight it only goes into my boobs, stomach and the love handles), but my booty/arms/legs stay small. I look like a 12 year old from the back and Im hoping pregnancy will give me some curves in other places! You look great!!

@SoonToBee2013:  Thank you! I think part of it is angles and the dress getting pulled forward by the bump to accentuate it(26 vs 34 weeks & then 36 weeks looks bigger again). I’ve had a BIG ASS the whole time and I get the feeling its gotten a bit wider – I’ve gained 2-3 inches of hips. You’ll probably find your bottom half ends up with a different shape after pregnancy.

I did work out 3-4 times a week until 30-ish weeks, took a break between 30-33, then got back on with the cardio & weight lifting. I’ve gained 30lbs even so far at 38+4 weeks, which is totally fine with me. πŸ™‚

@MrsRugbee:  Wow, I woulda never thought you gained 30lbs! You look like only your belly got bigger. How tall are you? Jealous of your booty, hope pregnancy leaves me with some wider hips!

@SoonToBee2013:  5ft 4. I was 145lbs pre-pregnancy & I’m now around 173-175lbs.  I’m pretty sure its mostly baby so I’m not worried πŸ™‚

@MrsRugbee:  You definitely dont need to be worried, you look amazing. And I was sure you were taller, but we actually have the same height. Thanks for all the infos πŸ™‚

Somewhere between 21w and 24w. Friends started to notice then.
