  • I'm not sure when people actually started noticing, but my jeans started noticing at five weeks! My father-in-law insists he could tell last Christmas, when I was about four weeks along, but I think he just wanted to sound smart ("Oh, I could totally tell!"). Whatever!

    Remember, you're never as big as you think you are, so maybe no one else really notices yet!

  • This is my #2 so i was thinking that may be part of it.. But im fur sure bloated...

  • You're probably just bloated (and dare I venture constipated?). I'm not exactly a stick, and I looked like I gained 10lbs almost overnight from not being able to poop and taking on a lot of extra water. I was noticeably pregnant by 4 months this time though.

  • i started outgrowing my clothes right away but i never got a noticeable round belly until 5 months.. even until 8 months i didnt think i really looked pregnant (im overweight and i think ppl just though i looked fat, until now that im 9 months)

  • With DD I didn't show until about 16 weeks, in maternity clothes at 18 weeks. With my DS I was in maternity clothes at 10 weeks! I probably started showing at about 16 weeks.

  • I was 7 or 8 months before you could actually tell i was pregnant i just looked like i was gaining weight, but im almost five ten so that might have helped. now at 9 months i look and feel like a house lol.

  • I was 6-7 months along with the first before I started showing. With this one (my second baby) I started showing around 5 months.
