  • It really depends on the positioning of the baby and the mother. If the embryo implants in the front or bottom of the uterus, you end up showing more out in front and carrying that way. If the embryo implants in the top or back of the uterus, the baby grows more upward into the ribcage and the mother does not show as much. My son grew up into my ribcage. I bought my first and only pair of maternity jeans at 8 months and I went home in my pre-pregnancy jeans. It also depends on the size of the mother. Smaller women tend to show quicker than larger framed women.

  • I was 120lbs and 5"6' when I got pregnant. I had the goal to be a very fat pregnant lady and gained 65 lbs while pregnant (regretting that now since our DS is 2 and I'm stuck at 130 ever since he was 3 months old... and all 10 lbs are in my belly) but I looked 'pudgy' from 2-4 months and rounded out at 5 months. There was no denying I was prego at 5 months

  • I'll be 4 months next week. Put a rubber band around your button, run it through the hole, then loop it back to the button. It works, and as long as your shirt's long enough, no one can tell.

    I've heard belly bands are awesome, too. I'm planning on getting one soon enough.

  • I didn't really start to show until 5ish months.. but I couldn't fit into my jeans by like 2 months probably. I gained the most weight around my hips and butt tho, so my jeans fit, but i couldnt even almost button them. lol I have been wearing maternity jeans since then. lol. they are just more comfortable.
