  • Over a period of time, but I have woke up and have had a huge belly.

    It seems that how baby is laying is how big you may be in the morning.

  • I think they probably mean that they just don't notice it much until it was like "BOOM!"... that's what I'd say. It does grow over time, it doesn't just happen

  • To be honest........my first pregnancy i lost a lot of weight and was not showing at all. I constantly got comments on how i was loosing so much weight. Then on spring break out of no where someone came up to me and commented on me expecting, and after that everyone was amazed that i was pregnant. I was 7 months along at that time. So yeah, mine kind of popped up over night.

  • I do believe that too. It's as though they and you hit a growth spurt and all of a sudden your tummy feels and looks larger than it did what seems only hours before.

  • it grows over time, but it feels like one morning you wake up and its huge! it happened to me, i knew i was getting bigger, but one morning i tried to get out of bed and it was a little more difficult than usual, and when i looked in the morning you just have the "holy cow im really pregnant" thought.

  • I think it's more of a figure of speech. There is a certain point where it seems like it just got huge all of a sudden.

  • when i was 3 months i kept hoping i'd wake up with a belly lol its more of a figure of speech. around the 5th month is when the baby really starts to grow and u start to show a lot more. also someting i've heard is that ur bowels cn make ur belly seem big, like if u hve to take a bowel movement, or if u ate a lot and ur stomach is full it makes ur belly look bigger. some mornings i wake up and my belly is really small and then when i eat it looks bigger. so maybe if u never noticed u were really starting to show u can wak up one morning and it just really seems to be there but it did grow slowly

  • yeahh i think its more of a figure of speech... when you just realize it suddenly.

    also, the baby sometimes sits differently and there was one time that my stomach was the BIGGEST its ever been....so maybe thats what they mean lol
