  • It depends on alot of stuff but 8 weeks is really early to be showing.Could it be water weight, that is distributing itself?Thats my guess.But like pp said,some show earlier.It is usually about 4 months,earlier if it isn't your first

  • It depends. If you are really skinny you probably will show sooner. If you are curvey it just depends when you POP. lol If you are plus size it may take a while. But trust me, you will get a bump. And when you do, it keeps getting bigger and bigger and you will wonder why you ever wanted to be so big. LOL I remember wanting to look prego

  • I never really got all that big until I was about 20wks, I wore my regular clothes up until I had the kids twins(28wks) the nurses always joke with me because I still had on my VS panties. And my doctor said you finally look like your at least pregnant. But it depends on your body if your over weight a bit then it will probably be a while before you show. I was just very tall they had a lot of room to hide LOL. Also, bloating, eating etc you have to take that into consideration.

  • Everyone is different... I am 28 wks. and I am not showing at all! You can't tell I'm pregnant except in my face!
