Im 5’9″ usually a size 0/2 and 115lbs. With my first I didn’t look pregnant to others until 5+ months and then I was small Until 6.5 months. This time people commented on my stomach starting around 12-13 weeks. These pics are from about 14 wks, 16, and 19 weeks. At 21 weeks I feel huge. 

I only gain in my belly and boobs, by the end I have a huge round belly but teeny arms and legs still.

This is at about a month before delivering my first

@prettyinpink11:  I really liked showing so soon, rather than the semi-pregnant/big lunch look.  Plus I told people at work and close to at 8 or 9 weeks and it was nice to have some people to share it all with.

@trixiesrockets:  thanks! I hate the bloat phase! It’s awesome when you finally have a real bump 🙂

I’m only 9 weeks and I can’t wear some of my jeans already.   Any jeans that don’t come up to my belly button I can barely zip.  My dress pants and jeans that come up higher fit fine.  It makes me nervous that I’m already having trouble with some of my pants.  I actually weigh a little less today than a couple weeks ago.

I’m 5″4 and was a size 12. I started having a very noticable bump at like 16-17 weeks. Which is crazy considering I’m now 23 weeks and at my last doctor appt (Dec 30) they told me in total I’ve only gained 5 pounds!!

@Chrissy26:  Your body is just amazing! Do you workout a lot or just stay away from bad food?

I am 19 weeks and can still fit into most of my jeans, I just wear them a little lower. My bump is very noticeable to me and the SO, but not to others. I am a teacher that doesn’t feel like explaining pregnancy to my students, so the longer he stays hidden the better 🙂

@Lemon-Squeezy:  I started showing early at around 16 weeks. Some people probably thought I just had a bit of a belly, but those who knew me said it was obviously a baby bump. I looked ready to deliver by 25 weeks!! *I miss my bump!*

@Chrissy26:  I was all belly with my son too! I was nearly falling over at 40 weeks, and then it took me a good few weeks to get my centre of gravity back.

I’m almost 33 weeks and it’s only in the last two weeks people who don’t know me well have felt confident enough to say anything.  In more clingy clothes though i think it became noticeable at about 26 weeks. It was annoying not lookng pregnant for so long, but appreciate it now. I’m still wearing my normal coats so don’t look pregnant at all when out and about!

I’m 5′ 7, was slim and fit before getting pregnant. I’ve put on 14lb, bump and baby measuring great, but still get comments on being small all the time!

@Hemnes:  I’m almost 30 weeks and you still can’t tell I’m pregnant in my coat (the one that still fits) as well!  Sometimes I wish people could tell so they would offer me a seat or something or help carrying things lol.

@kes18:  I live near London and Transport for London have a “Baby on Board” badge you can get, so i wear that when i’m on public transport, even when not in London! I have been lent a maternity coat and tempted to wear it even though my normal coats fit ok.

I started to notice my bump at 16 weeks but people didn’t start to notice until about 20 weeks.  I am 5’3 and was 130 pre pregnancy.  I am 23 weeks and can totally see a bump over my clothes.  Yay!!

felt big by 19 weeks, but looking back it just looks like I ate too much.

 

 

It was more obvious by 22 weeks, but stangers in general were still hesitant to congratulate me.

 

I am 5’3 and was about 125-130 starting out.

I’m curious to see how soon I’ll show this time.  I also am starting out a little heavier, but I hope to not gain quiiiiite as much as last time!
