  • You should start to show soon since you are 10 weeks and as far as movements since you are a first timer you probably won't notice that til around 5-6 months. Congrats.

  • 1) Maybe sometime soon. But a friend of mine didn't show until the third trimester.

    2) About 20 weeks.

  • Since every woman and every pregnancy is different, it's difficult to say when YOU will start to show or feel movement, but generally in a first time pregnancy, you can expect to feel movement around 17-21 weeks for certain. As for when you will start to show, that depends on a lot of factors, but I would say within the 3rd month sometime.

  • It depends on how big you are and how big the baby is. Sometime in the second trimester you'll be feeling the baby move.

  • It really does depend on how big you are in the first place for both questions. if you smaller, you may feel movements sooner. I did at 12 weeks and i was very small before pregnancy. And as for showing i didnt show until i was about 4 months
