  • I started showing at about 3 months. By 4, you'll definitely be able to see something. :)

  • depends
    overweight women tend to show later
    really physically fit women also show later
    also depends on if you have a long torso or a short torso.

  • I would say you should be showing by at least 4 months. Im 5' 6" and was 163lbs when i got pregnant and I started showing at 4-5 months along.

  • Depends ... I didn't show with my first until I was about 6 months along and I never showed with my second because she was actually born at 6 months gestation.

  • I was abt 5 months or so, kind of depends I think on the size of person you are, and how you eat and take care of yourself.

  • Actually, yea, I should have added that it totally depends on your frame and body shape. I'm fairly small, so I showed pretty early. By 5 months, I was HUGE, lol.

  • I was really small when I got pregnant, and by 4 months I was showing. But, people who did not know me well, commented a couple of times that they thought I was "just getting pudgy" lol. By 6 months, there was no question as to what the "pudge" was about!
