When will I finally start to show?

LOL reason I ask is cause I am tired of telling me that there is no belly yet, its just my imagination. Im sorry, but do your size 14's not fit you anymore?? does zipping your pants constricting your belly hurt? ugh... sorry.. I know it will be soon enough, Ill be 15 weeks tomorrow.. I know its there, I see it more when im wearing sweat pants cause its just all out lol.. but im hoping it shows more soon to get ppl off of my back. starting to annoy me.

  • haha.
    When it shows all depends on how you carry and just your body type. I showed at 10 weeks. My sister was 6 months pregnant and meeting her grandmother in law for the first time. The woman insisted to my BIL that my sis was lying about being pregnant as she was hardly showing.

  • I was about 5 months with both when I started to show. seven when people non related to me started to notice.

  • Everybody is different.... Me, I seem to show the minute I find out I'm pregnant, heh. My friend was seriously 9 months pregnant and looked as if she just had a heavy lunch, it was crazy! She'd get the oddest looks whenever she told people how far along she was.

  • Yeah don't let this bother you during this special time. Enjoy your pregnancy, the belly will come.

    This is one of the reasons why I don't tell anyone besides close family when I'm expecting until they notice my belly. Then again, I have 4 kids already.

  • with my first i wasn't showing til around the 6th or 7th month, and my belly was never big. it stayed the same size up until the day i delivered and people did not believe i was full term lol. i gained a crapload of weight though but my belly just never got very big with her. with my other two, that's a different story! =)

  • I didn't REALLY start showing until I was pretty far along. A bump that my husband and I noticed but not others. Even my last week of work a few of my coworkers that I would never really see because of different shifts were surprised to find out I was pregnant... I would gesture to my belly and be like "yeah, I've just been eating a lot of junk food the past 8 months and gained 50lbs!"
    Once you really start showing, you'll wish you were your old size again though. Moving around and getting comfortable becomes so difficult.
