  • no....not until 12 or 14 weeks unless you're extremely thin, but even then probably 8 weeks

  • Everyone's different, but the soonest I've heard is 2 months, but even that isn't noticeable to the outside world.

  • Everyone is different, so when did you start to show the first time?

  • I was five months with both my kids when I started showing.

  • Alot of women are different. I think 5 weeks is too early to start showing. You might just be bloated right now.

  • Well, it depends on the person. Usually a woman starts showing somewhere between three to five months. It is different for everyone. Ask your doctor if you are concerned.

  • I think I was around 5 months when it was noticeable for me, with both my kids, so it might be awhile yet!

  • you have time. I didn't start showing w my second until into my 6th month! But my first wasn't until 7! :) Now, I am on my 4th and started showing at 3 months (to outsiders)
