  • It took a good two months to feel the slight hardness of a baby bump... but I never got that big anyway. If I wore a sweatshirt even in my ninth month the belly was hardly noticeable! :(

  • it depends on alot of stuff hon. Is this first baby, they take longer to show because tummy muscles are tighter. It also depends on if you are overweight, where the baby is laying etc.... by 4-5 months you should see 6-7 holy cow-no doubt there a baby in there lol. I am 6 1/2 months and I am huge but this is second baby.

  • the stupid question is the one you never asked.. if this is your first baby, probably around 4 or 5 months. you show sooner w each pregnancy after that..every pregnancy and woman is different though so you wont get an accurate answer. just a guesstimate..GL and congrats

  • One thing that plays a huge factor in that is your body frame. When I was pregnant I was 145 lb and 5'6. I was almost 6 months before I actually looked pregnant and not just chubby. My SIL was like 110lb and maybe 5'2, her belly was huge at just like three to four months. I think the taller you are the more room the baby has to stretch upwards. lol

  • everyone is different. I am 15 weeks and still have a small one knows i am prengnant, while I see others out there already showing like a basketball...not sure why but it was the same way when I was pregnant with my first and i believe that this could be one of the reason why I was able to get back in shape before 3 months after giving birth...I'd have to say it helped so don't stress your self, I know you are worried but i'm telling you that your baby is growing just fine even if you're not have baby in there who's perfectly healthy! good luck!
