  • i started showing at 8-10 weeks and needed to put a hairband to extend my button on my pants by 10 weeks. it just depends i think on how your body is set up. i think maybe my stomache is just closer to the front or something, cuz my stomach pooches alot after i eat (even when im not prego) so i think when i got prego everything just got pushed up and out really fast. =)

  • I started gaining weight almost immediately. My face and butt were the first to start getting bigger, then my face sort of went down...but my butt has stayed big. lol =)

  • Everybody is different. Smaller people generally show the quickest. I weigh 123, but I kept mine concealed until I was around 6 months! I was the manager of an Auto Shop and I didn't want my pregnancy influencing the guys one way or another. I knew when they found out, they would insist I stay inside, not help and do nothing. I loved the outdoors and working on the cars, so I made the choice to conceal it as long as possible. Bigger shirts did the trick!

  • i started to show at about 3 months, i am very small though, 5 ft 1 and 98 lbs before pregnancy, so i showed faster then some, also i gained 40 lbs all together, and my daughter came out 8 lbs 8 oz so maybe your just gonna have a big baby : )

  • I needed new clothes a few weeks after I found out I was pregnant with my first, so probably around 2 months. Closer to 3 or 3 1/2 with this one. It's different for different women and different pregnancies. Weight gain isn't an indication of how much or how early you'll show. The doctor will do his measurements, you'll have an ultrasound to check on the baby, and as long as those are all normal there's nothing for you to worry about.
