  • At about 13 weeks I could see my uterus in the mornings, when my bladder was full and pushing it upward. After I peed it was gone lol. I started really showing when I was 16 weeks. But I continued to get looks like "uhh... is she fat or pregnant?" until I was about 30 weeks. I'm tall, so I don't show like most people lol.

  • I didn't start wearing maternity clothes until I was about 6 months along with our first. 2nd around 5 months, and 3rd around 4 months.. I'm finished, Phew!!

  • With my first I didn't show until I was 4 months or so, but continued wearing my "regular" clothes that weren't as fitted until I was 5 months.

  • I didn't really notice I was showing until I was a little over 5 months.

  • i am 5'7 and was 125 pounds when i got pregnant. i didnt start showing until about 6 months because my torso is so long. I also was EXTREMLY sick through my entire pregnancy so i didnt gain weight anywhere else because i could never eat. i wanted to wear maternity clothes for the expirience but i never could even fit into the XS sizes =( when i gave birth my tummy was about the size of an avergage woman who is about 6 months, but everyone carries diff.

  • I remember feeling so bloated all the time. That will go away. I started showing right away, I think before 12 weeks.

  • I am 8 weeks right now and I feel like i have been showing since i found out at 6 weeks. I know it was bloating at first because i felt even bigger than i do now. I am 5 ft 9 and 140 pounds and my stomache was really flat before because i am athletic so i feel like all the sudden i had a stomache and now i still do. My boyfriends swears i grow on certain days. haha. You probably are showing..everyone is different :)
