  • i didn't look preg til about 7 months with my first, with this one about 5 months but you "pop" earlier in future pregnancies.

  • It really depends on your starting wieght and your body type. The thinner you are the sooner you'll show. For me around five or six months you could really tell I was prego.

  • with my last one, I really didn't show. I wore maternity clothes, but didn't look pregnant in them!!!

  • I'm 22 weeks today and depending on what I wear I just look like I have a beer belly. Basically if I wear a maternity shirt I look pregnant, if I wear a regular shirt, fat. My SIL is really tall and skinny and she did start showing early, but even with clothes on she didn't look pregnant for the longest time. She's now around 8 months pregnant and looks closer to 6 months because she is so long waisted.

  • well it all depends everyone is different, and apperentally body type doesnt matter. b4 i got pregnant i was a size 0 and weighed 86 pounds, i am now 21 weeks and weigh 102, and just look like a have a little pouch. i'm wondering the same thing, but all you have to do is be patient..
