When will I start showing

I am 13 weeks one day pregnant with my first. I am 5'2 and was 111 when I got pregnant. I am now 115.5. Without clothes on I look a little puffy and at night more puffy. I was very fit when I got pregnant with very toned abdominal muscles. Everyone is surprised that I'm not showing already because I'm so little. I wonder too. Is the baby developing on schedule. I want to show the world that I'm pregnant.

  • Everyone shows differently and will start to show. If your Dr is not concerned then baby is fine. Just because you are smaller does not mean anything. I had a friend that is the same height as me 5 feet and she never showed. She always just looked like she gained some weight.

  • Everyone is different, but I say you will probably start showing around 4 - 5 months (16 weeks - 20 weeeks) along

  • I'm petite like you. I didn't start showing until I was in my 4th month and didn't start wearing maternity clothes until I was in my 7th month.
