When did you start showing?

I am 11 weeks pregnant with my 4th child and I can't even feel my uterus. Last week I could but over the weekend I noticed I couldn't anymore. Baby is fine, I listen to his/her heartbeat daily and it's in the 150's and I can hear him/her moving around. I was barely showing at 18 weeks during my last pregnancy, but with my first two kids I was pretty big by 18 weeks. I was told during my last pregnancy that I have a tilted uterus, so Im sure it has to do with that. Just wondering when everyone started showing...I am on a different pregnancy website and everyone in my week seems to have a bump already and can't sleep comfortably on their stomachs anymore. I'm not having that problem at all yet. I wake up on my stomach most nights.

  • Without clothing...usually around 5 months. With clothing on, usually around 7 months. Even at 9+ months I don't look like I'm about to pop (unless you know me).

  • I've only had one, but I was around 20-22 weeks when I started showing a little. I wasn't REALLY showing, so that everyone could tell I was pregnant, until around 7 months.

  • Gosh.. with my first I started to pooch a little (just so I could notice) just before 3 months. With this one (my second), I started pooching around 6 weeks and was forced to move up to maternity pants by 8 weeks! I just popped like crazy really fast. I think a lot of it was bloating. But now in the 2nd trimester things have slowed down a lot so I'm back to the "normal" amount of weight gain.
