  • If you're smaller, or it's a second pregnancy you may start showing at 12 weeks or so.
    Some ppl don't show until 5-6 months.

  • I didn't start showing until about 6-7 months and then it just shot out. Ppl really started to notice. you are probably just being healthy, not overeating, it will hit you all at once and you'll be all baby belly. Good luck

  • i really didn't show with my first child but i round 6 or 7 months i really started to show. But with my second kid it took no time for my belly to stick out about 5-6 months. it also depends on how the woman's body is structured ( weight and height)
