What week did you start to show with your 1st pregnancy?

I started my pregnancy very fit with a flat tummy. I am 12 weeks in and have gained 4 pounds. My boobs went from barely B to D. About 4 days ago, my belly just popped out like 8 inches and my regular pants don't fit.

How soon did you start showing? Am I going to be a giant balloon woman? It's not my looks I'm concerned about, it's getting dressed and moving around properly! What if I get so huge that I can't drive, and I'm only in my 2nd trimester?

  • i dont remember the actual week. its been 5 years since i had my daughter. But i didnt start to fully show where people noticed i was pregnant around 7 months. same with pregnancy number 2. Now that i am pregnant again it kinda shows and kinda not. im 20 weeks 3 days right now. I had two c-sections with both kids so i have some tummy that was hanging there even after i lost weight and worked out. so with this pregnancy i have some of that and of course a baby inside so if i let it all out it looks round but at 20 weeks 3 days i can still lay face down and suck it in. i dont show until im 7 months. thats just how my body is.

  • You are bloated. Its not the baby yet.
    Sucks I know.
    I was 22 weeks by the time I had a Baby bump.
    I was really thin too.
    I weight 99 lbs with my first.

  • I started showing around 16-17 weeks. Before that, I just looked bloated.

  • 12 weeks. But I was pregnant with twins, so it was a bit different. Congrats though.
