  • It depends on the mommy to be. I showed when i was 4 months, but my sister didnt start showing until she was 7. and even then she looked like she was only 3 months!!

  • Everyone is different when they start to show. I have 5 children and didn't start to really look pregnant until I was about 5 months.

  • I was wondering the same thing. I'm 12 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child and not showing at all. I'm also carrying some extra weight. I guess only the slim girls get a baby bump sooner? Considering my belly is already "bumpy" enough. lol I guess I'll have to wait a few more months to start showing.

  • I didnt show till I was almost 8 months along, so it depends I carried really low and to the back.

  • Me too..I didnt show till I was about 7-8 months as well, but when I was showing boy was I all depends on who it is...I was a skinny 5'3" 98 ib woman. I would have thought I would show automatically but it was the opposite...As for second...I feel I will show from the beginning..I didnt lose too much of the baby weight...

  • I had a friend who didn't find out she was pregnant until she was 32 weeks along (she never had regular periods and took a pregnancy test early on that was neg.). Anyway she wasn't showing than (and she was not overweight). I was the one with her when she found out she was pregnant and how far along she was. We were both in shock. However, I saw her about two weeks later and she had completely popped out. The doctor said that her baby was way up in her rib cage and toward her back.

  • I didn't start showing till about 24 weeks, or six months =] So everyone is different.

But now im 15 wks also and im showing like if i was 5mths preg....I did lose most of my baby weight...Which left me at about 130lbs I was 115lbs when i got preg w/ my first!
