  • It depends on the pregnancy, your pre-pregnancy size and how much weight you gain. With my first I was showing by 4 months. My middle son I barely showed at all at 7 months. My youngest I started to show about 5-6 months.

  • With my first pregnancy (twins) it was around 12-13 weeks, but I was also really skinny at the time. My second pregnancy I start showing around 16 weeks. This one, I am 9 weeks and not showing yet.

  • I'd say maybe 24 weeks and probably around 28 with clothes on, when other people could actually tell I was 'showing'. Both of my pregnancies were like that. I also have a pretty small build and was very thin with my first, closer to average with my second. I don't know why it takes me so long to show. My mom was the same way though. I have horrible stretch marks from being prone to them but also I think because I popped out so fast and even though I stayed skinny my belly got huge with both, just not until the end.

  • With my first, around 14-16 weeks. With my second, around 12-14 weeks.

  • I've always had a flat tummy, so I looked like I had a little gut at 18 weeks. I don't think I was really noticibly pregnant until around 22 weeks or so.

  • I was about 180lbs when I got pregnant. I had a bump to people who knew me by about 16 weeks. I was very pregnant-looking by 24 weeks.
